  • Wed, 16:18: Ugn, I'm so tired.
  • Wed, 16:35: I actually have two cars at the shop right now. An oldsmobile and the S10. The olds needs a lot of work, but it can wait.
  • Wed, 17:08: A while back, I got Doobie a large Kong bone (The bigger, blacker bone). It's really difficult getting the kong treats in it.
  • Wed, 17:08: So I just stuffed it with carrots and peanut butter and stuck it in the freezer. I bet he'll love it now.
  • Wed, 17:43: The shop just called and they think it's either a bad or clogged fuel injector. They can't do the cleaning of the injector itself.
  • Wed, 20:03: The S10 is now at the chevy dealership, awaiting a diagnostic. It will probably be there until Monday.
  • Wed, 20:26: S10 Troubles Continued - The mechanics I took it to believe they have narrowed the problem down to the fuel... http://t.co/I6SfYzMR3D
  • Wed, 20:30: Meanwhile, I gave Doobie his frozen treat. He keeps licking at it furiously and staring at me like, "Why, why did you do this to me?"
  • Wed, 20:40: Photo: …This is really pathetic, Tumblr. http://t.co/WUzUWDGLgB
  • Wed, 21:29: Doobie is still trying to get the carrot stuck in the middle of the Kong. This is a wonderful distraction for him.
  • Wed, 23:03: Tactical Dachshund http://t.co/kShPhzCGxF via @imgur
  • Thu, 01:09: I just spent $20 in fucking ice cream and I don't care. I needs it.
  • Thu, 03:06: We're already flooding and now we've got a hurricane due to make landfall on our coast this weekend.
  • Thu, 04:40: So the dealer said they won't be able to look at the S10 until Friday or Monday. So that hopefully gives me a break from it for a day or so
  • Thu, 04:40: I spent most of today talking to the mechanic that looked at it, other mechanics that could possibly do the job, and then the dealership
  • Thu, 04:56: @TWC_Help Do you guys set up apartments for Internet service on Saturdays? It will be a new account for a friend.

The S10 has the spider kind of FI system. It's really stupid.

Curious what a whole new injector setup would run, any idea?

I've seen them mentioned on the S10 forums that I go to, that someone suggested this other kind of system that's an upgrade from the original. http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f107/scpi-to-mfi-upgrade-kit-324166/

According to them, that kit is $239, but I don't know exactly what it includes.

But since my S10 is a 2003, I'm not sure if it already has this new system on it.

What I don't understand is if the spider IS the fuel injectors, or if the spider leads to the fuel injectors.
