Engine Performance problem
2001 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 161, 00 miles
I have 2001 Chevy s-10 4 cyl manual trans. For about a week my truck once driven for about 20 minutes will lose all power and when you push in the clutch it will die. You can then let out the clutch and the engine will attempt to start but will not. If I cut the key off and back on the engine will then start again and run again for about 10 or 15 miles and do the same thing all over again. It seems to get worse with this issue when the gas level in the tank starts to get lower and lower and then I fill up and it doesn't do it as often until I start getting low on fuel again. I just noticed today the engine is harder to start (it takes it longer than usual to start). If I turn the key on for a couple of seconds and then start it it cranks up fine but still dies later on. Is this a failing fuel pump or a computer problem. I thought when a fuel pump quits it is dead. Please let me know.
have the same problem?
