1997 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 172000 miles
Here's my problem. The engine cranks for about 5 seconds, then either dies or starts very rough and stalls. Immediately after, when cranking for a second time, the engine starts perfectly after 1-2 seconds with a good idle. Could the Oil Pressure switch that cuts power to the fuel pump when the pressure is too low be the culprit? If I keep cranking to get the pressure up, it stalls, and then immediately after crank again and the pressure is high enough, it'll start. It ALWAYS starts on the second start. Is there a bypass to the sensor when the starter is engaged?
have the same problem?
