Chevy 2002 S10 extended cab having issues up hill, and starting

Asked by Feb 13, 2014 at 01:56 AM about the 2002 Chevrolet S-10 4 Dr LS 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My boyfriend has a Chevy 2002 S10 extended cab and while driving especially uphill
the truck seems to make a noise comparable to a hard shift of gear... Also more often
than not his truck has issues starting up.  Sometimes i tell him to gas it a little and that
works, this evening his truck wouldn't start shortly after this had occurred earlier (about
3 hours in freezing cold Wisconsin), his battery was recently replaced and his fuel
indicator is broken (i don't know if that makes any difference, moreso the fuel indicator)

PLEASE HELP

forget the indicator ,no relationship, just carry a qt of fuel in the back of the truck bed for run out of fuel, you could try a better octane of fuel for a run or two, product; seafoam $8 does help this issue on most,half in tank and half drawn in intake while revving a little while at operating temp.

    My transmission won't shift gears. I've checked the fluids and it doesn't have a TV cable. I just want to know why it won't.
