Customer Question
I have a 94...

I have a 94 chevy s10 ext cab pickup vortec v6 165,000 miles on it it shows a check engine light then when you turn off the engine and restart the light is off

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S10 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have hired the entire tune up this last spring

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hello I will help,

You will need to retrieve the trouble code when the light is on.

Follow the information on this page and post the code you get back here so I can help you with its meaning. When it says "ground A and B" just connect them with a paperclip
