i have a 97 s-10 4cyl 5 speed that sometimes will not start. press the
clutch, turn the key all the dash lights come on and i can hear the fuel
pump engage, but nothing happens (not even a click). it is like you
haven't pressed the clutch at all. i have had the nuetral safety switch
and the starter replaced at different times to try to correct this
problem. even had it towed to the garage because it wouldn't start in the
driveway. when the mechanic got it to the shop, it cranked right up. also
will start if you push the truck and pop the clutch. this has been going
on for 2 years or better. does anyone have any ideas??? thanks for your
I too have the no start condition and hope I solved mine with a new starter.
So damm intermitt that I am not certain if starter fixed the problem. The
start relay under the hood costs about 40 bucks from dealer.
there seems to be a long path to the starter that goes something like this
on the automatic transmission version, but I suspect the manual has similar
Key to neutral/park shift sensor to start relay under hood to finally the
starter solenoid and then the starter windings. Any place along the line
can mess things up. If you can probe at the relay under the hood, this
would be a good half way point to determine which direction to go.
