Q: What would cause a 1999 Chevy S10 with a 2.2 - 4 cyl. to sputter and miss?
The truck misses really bad at take off but after the RPMs are up it gets a little better. Its also worse when I have the AC running...I am not sure if its a timing issue or a fuel issue... I have changed the plugs and wires and the air filter but no luck... This truck only has 40 K miles on it
A: After changing the plugs and wires, you now need to do an ignition test. Park the truck in a really dark location and with the hood open and engine idling (parking brake on), have a friend punch the accelerator pedal quickly while you lean over the driver's side fender and look for any ignition sparks jumping off the plug wires directly to the engine and ground. If you see any, that means that plug wire is bad or is not connected well to it's spark plug and accounts for the cylinder misfire. http://www.aa1car.com/library/misfire.htm

A: The best way to see if there was a recall is to contact Chevrolet. When cars do have recalls though they usually send a letter out to the owner, if you bought it used though they might not have you on file. Contact Chevy and they can tell you.
Q: 1999 chevy s10 that has a check engine light on and the codes tell me it's 2 lean what can i do 2 fix it?
the codes are saying it's running to lean on both banks i'm assuming that means the left and right sides of course but what can i do to stop the light from coming on? i've tried lucas fuel injector cleaner and bumped up the gas to 93 octane so far with no success and also replaced the fuel and air filters any other thoughts out there to try?
A: Your codes are p0171 & p0174 those are lean condition codes which you already know. The only way to (as you say stop the light from coming on)is to address the problem. preform a visual check for any cracked vacuum lines ( there's only a couple of hoses on your engine ) then check to see if the oil filler cap is seated properly (a missing oil filler cap can set a lean code) (shops often forget to reinstall them after oil changes)also check the PCV valve for proper installation, check around the mass air flow for air leaks. if ok. you're going to need a fuel presuure gauge, key on engine off should be between 60-65 PSI will drop to 55-60 after a couple of seconds . if pressure is low , the pump is at fault...... turn key fom ON to OFF a couple of times to maximize fuel pressure when checking it... another thing to check for, is exhaust leaks, are the exhaust doughnuts seated and tight. I think i've given you enough things to get you started. if you still can't find the problem, then I suggest a visit to your local GM dealer they have the proper diagnostic equipment to correctly diag. an injector balance must be preformed and that can only be done with the scanner. a usual diag fee is about one hour.(don't know how much they charge per hour in your area) trust me, it's worth it.
Q: Where would I find neutral safety switch on a 1999 Chevy s10?
A: Under your clutch pedal. It stops you from starting the truck unless the clutch is depressed. Usually, they are just located right under there, unless it is an electronic sensor, and in that case good luck.
Q: 1999 Chevy s10 ls check engine light on what it could be?
A: Usually under normal conditions the first thing to cause the light to come on is a bad 02 Sensor. They are subjected to extreme heat in the exhaust. They can go anytime around 60-80k miles. But like the others say... many other things can cause the light to come on as well. Just for one example: I had a mouse chew through some wires under the hood of my brand new truck because it was not being driven very much. I found the nest right behind the air cleaner. Mice will chew on anything. These chewed wires tripped my check engine light. Lucky for me... I found the nest before the little twits chewed the whole harness up.
Q: 1999 Chevy s10 Shock problem.?
I own a 1999 Chevy s10. A couple of weeks ago i started hearing a clicking sound coming from the front right wheel. It now occurs very frequently and is getting me nervous.

Q: I need my differential repaired on my 1999 Chevy S10 Blazer. Any good mechanics in Houston, Texas?
My car has been making a horrible clunking noise in the differential for about 3 weeks now. It is a 1999 Chevy S10 Blazer. I had no choice but to drive it when it started to make loud popping noises as well as vibrate uncontrollably. I was a few feet from my home, when it suddenly stopped and decided it would no longer keep going. I step on the gas and the tires seem to be locked. It feels like the engine wants to keep going and therefore a big smell of burning fuel comes out. I have no clue what it would be, or how much it will cost to fix. I am on a huge budget and would greatly appreciate any information that will help me make a decision concerning the repairs. I would also appreciate any information in regards to good inexpensive mechanics in the Richmond/Westheimer in Houston, Texas. THANKS GUYS & GALS!

I ended up paying 150 &100. at junk yard that sold me the rearend and then one of their emplyees in stalled it cheap after work at their yard. took him 2.5 hours. This is VERY important. Best to have rear end installed by the same people you bought it from so if there is any prob with they are responsible.and will fix it. the ones who give you way high price looking for a sucker..fyi it is not difficult to replace a rear end your blazer. look in the phone book and start calling ,good luck!

A: If its fuel injected have the injectors cleaned. And stop using the cheapest fuel in town, the hidden cost is replacing the fuel injection system. If your leaning out a cylinder because of a clogged injector you going to burn an exhaust valve too.
