s-10 won't start

10 posts in this topic

Alright heres the deal,i have a 1992 s-10 with the 4.3 tbi. I was driving my truck 2 days ago everything was good, i went out fishing and when i got back to my truck it wont start. I have been working in it since then. I can put gas down the carb and it will fire. i checked the fuel pressure, its good. had the ignition control module tested, its good.

I got gas up to the injectors, but the gas aint getting pass the injectors. I cant imagine both the injectors goin bad at the same time. I got a noid light to plug in, and got no light to come on while cranking the motor when it should be pulsing. have been looking for worn or broken wires and cant find a thing.

any help here would be much appreciated. thanks

Those are always a tough call. I've seen them do some very strange things over the years. Glad it was relatively simple and cheap to repair!

Welcome to FM/HSO/Iceleaders Ford Lover!

Funny thing is I have never owned a Honda or Toyota that has left me stranded. My Mercury Cougar, Buick Century, & Ford Tempo had seen the back end of a tow truck more than once! grin

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
