My 2003 chevy s10 idles but will not take gas. I have replaced sparks, wires, parts in the air breather system and all 3 oxygen sensors. I have been told that not all of the gas is not burning in the motor and the rest is burning in the catalytic converter. Most people tell me its the full pump. Its a 4.3 liter. Whats next?
