usually a temp sensor on its way out. engine thinks it has cold air coming in so adjusts for that. but when warm air comes in the engine uses more fuel than it needs so will take longer to start. could also be the maf is dirty and needs cleaning as same as the MAP sensor, when replacing a dirty air filter its best to clean these parts as the muck that has been able to get through the filter will coat them with muck. this changes the sensors readings can become lower or high depending on the condition or evaporation in the air.

what do you mean,
that is GM CAR, END TO END WITH Plastic ,isuzu tag.
what are you attempting or the job what is wrong,
why not say what you are up to first
then ask questions so we can be on the same page.

my guess, doing fuel line work
that get to the page in the SM that says (all do)
relieve fuel pressure and tells you how.
but you never read books
so wonder.
well one way is to run engine,(does it run? ) then pull the fuel pump relay out running and it stalls, done.
engine not running, dead engine
crank it with fuel pump relay for 5 seconds.... done.

if the fuel rail on the V6 has schrader valve that too can be done but is fuel to your eyes, dangerous.
do not get benzene in the eyes ever. (part of gas is that)

The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

what engine, THE CAR IS A GM s10 IN DRAG.
4.3L v6 Vortec 4300, GM
2.2l i-4, OHV ENGINE. NOT ISUZU!!!

In 1996, Isuzu replaced its Pick Up with a version of the Louisiana-built Chevrolet S-10, the Isuzu Hombre, based on the Brazilian market S-10
so google the vortec 4300
here Ill type for you....

on most v6, its near the oil gallery , on a bank.
so that means if youd look on both banks , the one with the 1 wire sensor is it.
but not this v6
its here.
log in to mitchell's and read, its all there.

or v6
must be the V6 as the I-4 is OHV chain
the V6 is covered
the 8th digit of the VIN answers this
4= 2.2L 4 cyl. chain cam OHV
w= 4.3L v6 ,chain
x= same but tad diff, v6. chain
there is no belts this year.
yes confusing
its not really an ISUZU with belts
its a CHevy S10, with a silly Isuzu badge

The Isuzu, S10, is better name,...the wiki , is scary if read on this car.
sure the cam stops turning, and engine dies.
the GM 2.2L engine is OHV, chain,
the Suzuki 2.2L DOHC is belt drive !!! not chain.
The engine lost all spark can be cam dead.
remove the CMP cam sensor crank engine see it dead?
wont turn or is jumping oddly>? (slack chain)

the online FSM shows this as GM engine,
lost spark works like this.
if sparks gone.
the CMP and CKP sensors feed the PCm
the PCM then fires the ICM driver ignitors
to 2 coils
2 wasted spark coils.
do not mix the 4 HV wires or engine will not run
the firing order is PCM hard coded
to 1,3,4,2.
but fires them in PAIRS, called wasted spark.

short answer
engine will not start but cranks
spark gone all 4
spark timing all wrong (a timing light sees this easy)
look at cam, see it not turn
look at cam ,see it acts odd, jumping crazy.

double posted, why?
did i guess right?
that means ,
check all fuses first. even the alt fuse (large)
1-battery bad? #1 top failure all cars.
2-Charge system bad. (is the charge/ batt warn lamp glowing when running car, bingo.????

3-or phantom drains. (if no crank just after stall then it not this) if drains while sleeping yes.

the tests are easy, a dirt cheap voltmeter
13.3v to 15v running is good charge system.
if 12v and falling not.

if the battery is bad, the charge system can shut down, so, the best practice is to try a know
good battery out of 2nd car, do you have battery to barrow, this is TOP CHOICE< not thinner wallet.

if the good battery fails then the charge system is failing (note I said system and not a part)
or the belt missing or slipping to the alternator.

btw the 4.3L PCM runs the alternator
PCM is engine brain.
btww, same true 2.2l engine.
the regulator is in the PCM.

so is the charge/bat lamp in cluster
on key on, lamp test
the jump start it , it runs
does the charge./batt.lamp go out.
id be all over that lamp, costs nothing to look.

Thermostat stuck maybe.

1998 Isuzu... | Answered on Mar 12, 2016

The clutch probably has a slave cylinder that does the work. It might be dry or seized. check that first.
