Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup ?

Dumps raw gas into engine

\015 I have a 1998 s10 with a 2.2 engine, It misses really bad, has bad fuel smoke out of exhaust, after keeping it running ( which is hard to do), it has an excessive amount of gas in the oil. Please help. Thanks\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Just a few things to check. Take off the fuel filter and make sure there is no water in it. If you have put in different spark plugs than AC Delco, then change them to AC Delco. If you haven't looked at the plugs or the fuel filter, then it is way past time to replace the filter and new AC Delco spark plugs only. These places that insist that you use Bosch plugs or split fire plugs don't know ****. The Delco plugs are made especially for your engine and will out last those cheap non-working Bosch plugs.
\015\012If the fuel filter and plugs don't fix it, make sure your air filter intake isn't stopped up with a bird's nest. Happens a lot. If it still misses after new plugs, you may have a fuel injector sticking.
\015\012The bad smoke is the gas-thinned oil passing the rings and unburnt fuel smoke. The missing really bad is most likely fuel soaked spark plugs. Make sure you change the oil while changing the plugs or you will have a redo. Let us know if any of this helps. Dale

Engine hesitation When accelerating, the engine will sputter and hesitate. Lift off the gas petal and the engine will recover and perform normally as long as the gas petal is treated as if there is a raw egg between your foot and the gas petal. In other words, apply very little pressure on the gas petal to accelerate. The engine will do this at all speeds. oes anyone have a clue

The fuel pressure should be from 41-47 psi. I always suggest buying genuine Chevrolet fuel pumps. This and thermostats are about the only two things that I suggest buying from the dealer. The problem that you are having is the reason why. Aftermarket ... 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

I recently bought a 1993 Lexus SC 400 a month ago. The car ran fine. Then it started running rough. At start up it still runs fine. Once it reaches operating temperature the engine idle fluctuates and when put into park or neutral the rpm jumps up. At the same time black exhaust come out and smells like raw fuel. When you step on the gas pedal the engine bogs down and wants to stall. At this point, if you put it in gear the car stalls. After the car sits for a while, it starts up and runs fine u
