Asked by Mar 28, 2017 at 05:33 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the head gasket and when I try to start it,
it will turn over a time or two and stop like it's
locked up do I have the rocker arms to tight or to
loose or what I'm not sure what it is

I hope you didn't bend a valve, probably did by the sounds of it, on a Chevy, you do not tighten rocker arms down. There is a procedure to do it right.


sounds like the timing is off- or somethin'
