Having problems with your 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup ?

Dead #4 cylinder

\015 I took my concorde to get fixed. They replaced the crank shaft sensor (second time in 1 1/2 years) and now I am told the #4 cylinder is dead. Is this car a lost cause. I was told by the mechanic I should junk it and I would probably get $100.00 for it. I know the tires on the car cost more than that. Any help is appreciated.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018
