Chevy did have a 4 cylinder in the S-10 but just like Ford does not offer 4WD with the 4 cylinder, Chevy may do the same. A search of "Chevy S-10 Specs" on Google will provide an answer.
It could have, Just count the spark plugs. 4 plugs= 4 cylinder 6 plugs= 6 cylinder 8 plugs= 8 cylinder
A intake valve open when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder and just after the exhaust valve closes. It allow fuel and air to enter the engine cylinder.
in back just ahead of fuel tank.
It could be the timing chain/sprockets marks are not lined up correctly or the valves are not adjusted correctly.
You might be able to trace the id # (just in front of #2 cylinder) at mortec.com
You probably mean "interference" engine...(piston hits valves) I cannot answer truthfully, because I just dunno.
It's not a good habit to get into. Only the valves should be used just like lifting a single cylinder.
Usually it's not trivial to find out that valves have to be replaced. Some common cases are: timing belt was broken and valves were bent, one or more valves where burn or have mechanical defect. The best way is just to look at valves, it might involve removal of cylinder head unless you have a optical fiber which allows to look in combustion chambers without opening it.
Yes, exact fit! Just change the ignition key cylinder to retain use of same keys.
It is right on the top side of the firewall just to the left of the master cylinder
Sodium is a solid at room temperature and becomes a liquid at 97.5 degrees Celsius. Sodium cooled valves are exhaust valves in a cylinder head of an engine that open to release exhaust gasses that were formed due to combustion of fuel and air inside the cylinders and typically get very hot. The sodium cooled valves and exhaust valves filled with sodium inside, the sodium helps the valves be cooler than if they were just solid.
