Having problems with your Chevrolet S 10 ?
1996 s10, 4.3, started getting hard to start in the morning, to the point of needing a jump. Battery was fully charged but it seemed to need that extra boost to start. Battery new, starter new, coil new alternator new, fuel regulator new, spider near new, fuel pump near new, motor sensors new, plugs new, dist cap new, rotor new, wires new, now won't start even with a boost. Spark related, plenty of fuel. Possible related symptom, awhile back it started acting like it might be missing a beat goin
You didn`t mention a check engine light.But even if the light has not come on check for codes.The code for the crank shaft position sensor is a po338 and will not illuminate the check engine light.This can cause a hard start,no start,slow start,backfire,or kick back.The crank shaft position sensor is on the timing cover on the bottom end.There is a service bulletin for this.The number is 00-06-04-014.Give this a try.Hope this helps.Good luck.
