No spark No fuel 93 s10


Asked by Nov 06, 2015 at 01:04 PM about the 1993 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As the title says, I have a 1993 Chevy S10 with the 2.5L 4 cylinder (Iron Duke)
(4Tech) whatever. It's only got 70k on it, so I'd like to get it up and running -
and keep it that way for a long time if possible.
I was driving down the road yesterday and the engine turned off - its like
nothing happened - it just stopped and I was coasting. I pulled off - tried
restarting but no dice. So I called for my roadside assistance and end up
getting it towed home.
Any clue as to how this might have happened, or what might be wrong?
I turn the key and it just cranks but never fully turns over and fires up.

Checked so far:
Battery - replaced with brand new Duralast Gold 75dlg
Distributor Module replaced
Ignition coil replaced
Checked all fuses - all good
Fuel pump is working - can hear it
Fuel filter is not clogged
EGR valve has been cleaned

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Ecm could be the issue. Their costly.

I'm getting code 12. I'm also gonna replace the pick-up coil just to do it - only $15, so no loss trying.

Pick up coil was the issue. Problem fixed = truck running. :)
