Got a new truck

Recommended Posts

If you didnt already know I bought a 93 isuzu pickup for 850 bucks and on the way home the lower rad hose blew up and I overheated and blew the head. (just my luck huh?) Its been sitting in my driveway for the last few weeks. I could not afford the 800 or so dollares to fix the head so I sold it saturday for 700 bucks and went and picked this up today:

1998 Isuzu Hombre (chevy s-10)

Thanks man Thats just a tough job and would feel bad pushing it on someone. But I held out and got a better truck:excuseme: Just one thing though, when you start it first you have to push the pedal all the way down to get it to run without dying and then after a minute or so it idles fine:confused:

ANother question, Sean can you spot weld?

yes but i dont have a spot welder 👍

sound like fuel filter is plugged, or injectors going bad, can also be a temp sensor is off, or map/maf sensor, i forgot what s-10's use. is it throwing a check engine light at all?

Spot weld? You can creatively spot weld with a Mig welder. What do you need welded?

He took out the old dash and has other guages in. Temp sensor is good. Think it may be Iac valve or knock sensor:confused:

I would go with a weak fuelpump or plugged filter. GM's are notorious for Fuel pump problems and hard starting.

If I get my tig set up this weekend I could do it for you. My mig is down right now It needs a new regulator and liner.

Tig would be the way to go with it having to stay in the motor. It allows for better heat penetration on small welds.
