Engine Performance problem
1995 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 139671 miles
Hello. I have a 1995 GMC Sonoma V6 4.3L truck. It has been sitting a lot lately. My problem is that when I crank it(it cranks up fine)it wants to sputter, jerk, and finally if I take my foot off the pedal, it just shuts down. This all happens in park, I haven't really wanted to try to drive it in it's current condition. I have started my own tune up job on it and was able to replace 4 very old spark plugs, but the last two are incredibly hard to reach and work with. My problem persists and I'm not sure what I need to do with the truck. As a side note, before I stopped driving it, it was pretty low on fuel. I considered no gas in the truck and filled it with about two gallons of gas, but a fuel problem seems out of the question. It does stay running for as long as I keep my foot on the pedal.
My only ideas as it stands from tons of searching around is to somehow get those last two spark plugs in, and perhaps I need to replace the fuel pump and or relay. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
