2001 Chevy S10 cranks but won’t start.


Asked by Feb 08, 2019 at 05:37 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet S-10 Extended Cab RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hopefully you folks can shed some light on my
issue:) I parked my truck, turned it off, and now it
won’t restart. So far I’ve changed out distributor
cap, rotor, coil pack, spark plugs, spark plug wires,
fuel pump, and fuel filter. It turns over like a
champ, but it doesn’t even seem to try to start. I’m
stumped, thanks in advance!

Your car has an ignition or fuel pump problem. You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. Without seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. Why don't you take it to a mechanic to diagnose. You'll then have his opinion and estimate and can have him fix it, or use his review as a guide to doing repairs yourself.


I have good fuel pressure at my throttle body. If you put fuel straight into the throttle body as you crank, it will start to idle roughly but then sputter and die. I was thinking maybe a sensor...but I’m out of my depth.
