Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

trouble starting

Here is the begining, I thought the fuel pump went, so i replaced it with a new in line filter, Truck ran for 2 weeks with check engien light on, and truck was very slugish. The lights would get dim then bright aagin, then after going from maine to cape cod mass twice , i went out to start my truck one day and nothing. I tried replacing the fuel pump again, and tried to start the truck and the truck would not even start with gas poured directly into the airbox. I then decided i needed to buy a code reader so im not waisting more money on parts. I hooked the code reader up to it, and no power at all to code reader. What is wrong with this thing??? Someone please help!!!!!

S-10 Pickup 2.2L V4

  • Manual transmission

When I try to start my truck, I press the clutch all the way in and nothing! It takes me about 10-15 turns of the key to finally get it to start up. Sometimes I have to put it in first to get it to start and sometimes it only starts in neutral. Please I need some help! I don't want to spend a fortune trying to fix this problem.
