Did you replace the fuel pressure regulator? It sounds like it is dumping too much fuel into the engine. You may still have a problem with one of the sensors. I would suggest trying to read the engine codes if you can access them on this vehicle (it is not OBDII, I believe it is OBDI) and see what is showing up wrong. How is your catalytic convertor?

your problem could also be a bad seal in the engine block or the seal between the carb and the block is bad. either way, i think it sounds like oxygen is getting in the engine by other means then the air cleaner

    S10 won't start, but the lights will turn on. Tried getting it to start lastnight, still didn't wanna start. How do you get the starter to start after not wanting to start.
