So anyhoo.

Today I ventured over to Autozone. Got me a new fuel injector for the S10. They list them for $314, but one of the guys that usually checks me out came over, did something to computer, made the total come out to $306. Hey, a few bucks here and there is good!

I didn't really shoot pics because I was able to get off work early today so I did a quick grab, wrench, and install. One thing I did shoot was a wrench modification for the S10'*. This works for standard V6'* and 350 mod'* as well.

Take a standard 5/8" combo wrench, put a torch to it and bend it like so...




Now you can reach down and loosen/tighten those fuel line connections that are a pain in the *** to get to.

My fuel trims, I have no idea. I'm watching them on playback and they are like all over the place. They are averaging (if you could call it that) from -2 to 3, sometimes with a 2-3 point spread between bank 1 and 2. Yes, I did reset the fuel trims in the beginning.

sounds fine, should be less than 4-5, have you checked your pressure lately? was it a mpfi set? on a full size you can get that with a normal 16mm, just made me chuckle is all. i have turned down side jobs on trucks like yours with just the six, because it was going to be a pita

So far, the fuel trims seem better, but sporadic. I wish I could find a way to show you the live data.

It has good power from 700 to 2500 RPM, but beyond that, it bogs down like a dead horse.

I'm skeptical of driving it anywhere besides around the block or so with this oil pressure issue. So I think I'm going to start tear down in 2 days.

check the fuel pressure with the gauge taped to the windshield or wiper. if the pressure doesnt maintain over 60psi in the area over 2500 rpm it will feel like that

No, fuel pressure is good on the throttle down 60+. So for poops and giggles, I removed both front O2 sensors. Sounds cool as I'm driving through the neighborhood, but I just got a butt load of power back.


Clogged cat. Debating on guttin the cat and turning off my downstream sensor and just drive it like that until I get the funds to take it to a shop to have everything done from the headers back.
