1996 s10 2.2l trouble driving

05-22-2011, 01:22 PM
I have a 1995 s10 2.2l 5 speed. The truck will start up fine and idle with no problems. I can drive it but it acts up horribly. It hesitates when i take off and it will jerk on me the whole drive. It also will stall out on me but I'll just bump the clutch and it will start right back up. I have checked the fuel filter and fuel pump. both are fine. i have had a lot of people tell me tons of different things but i dont know whats wrong with it. somebody please help me with this.

Any exhaust restriction? Is fuel pressure adequate? Are spark plugs gapped correctly (they can wear open pretty fast). Are the air filter and inlet ductwork intact? Is the MIL on? Any error codes?

We'll need more descriptive information and data to offer a good suggestion beyond the very basics.
