Re: 2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

If the CEL is on, you have codes. If you have codes, you have something to go off of. It may not be directly related, but one system often impacts others in ways only engineers can explain. Pull the codes. Either way, it sounds like your shop is playing Parts Darts. Nope, shop is not playing parts ...

Re: 2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

I have the black tape on the "check engine light" (love that "Chicken Gin") since I bought the truck from ClutchDisk. I had it on my Ranger pickup, and think on my F150 before that. Greatest repair tool in the kit. AFAIK, the Chicken Gin light is a USEPA scare tactic to induce people to get polluti...

Re: 2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

Well there's your problem. Your truck aint a Red Ford. If it's related to getting warm, I've had a Generous Motors ignition module act up when it warmed up.....but that was on a '74 Potniac Grand Safari wagon we called all 5078 Lbs and 130" of Wheelbase "The Great White Whale" Ignition module in 19...

Re: 2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

So I got new plugs and wires installed (this apparently had never been done in 153,000 miles). Took a drive about 10 miles today and it still bucks. Fuel filter is new as I mentioned before, and they did test the fuel pressure and it was good. Next up: Throttle position sensor? Crank sensor? Is the...

I like it. Maybe that is the fix for my S10 woes:

Re: ***Official Joke Thread***

A little stay-at-home humor: After years of wanting to thoroughly clean my house, but lacking the time. . .this week I discovered that wasn't the reason. Back in B.K. time (Before Kids), I was Joe Gardener. I brought coffee grounds home from the big urn at work to add to the garden soil, I planted ...

Re: ***Official Joke Thread***

A little stay-at-home humor: Anyone else's car getting 3 weeks to the gallon at the moment? After several days at home I have determined what I really need to do is start social distancing myself from my refrigerator. Pigeons probably think we're extinct. Do not call the police on suspicious people ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

With our 92 5.0 I can't even get into second gear on surface streets without violating the speed limit. That is undeniably an operator issue, not a car issue. I manage to stay well within the speed limit with considerably more power. But I like to run the gears out, and even then I probably are not...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

On the other hand if I found a nice '99-'04 Mustang V6 with a manual I might just go with that. Wikipedia says, "The 3.8 L OHV Essex V6 returned as the base engine for 1999. A new split-port induction system replaced single-port induction, which increased the base model's output to 190 hp (142 kW; ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

My luck...gas prices are lower than whale poop and i've got nowhere to drive to. Yeah, me too. On the bright side, my S10 has been bucking at steady speed on the freeway and we can't seem to find the problem. Well now it just sits, so it doesn't buck anymore. I would leave it off at the shop for th...
