Adding gas I have tried several times to add gas to my 2001 blazer, I am unable to add any the pump keeps turning off, and I even tried using a can to add it. There are no kinks in the hoses, and I thought maybe it was vapor locked but that didnt seem to be an issue either. What do I do next?

Gas pumps turn off when they sense flow re-entering the nozzle. Try adjusting how far you are shoving the pump nozzle into the vehicle. or don't squeeze the pump too hard (the excess velocity creates turbulence which creates back-splash and triggers the sensor).

It would start this morning, then now the fuel pump won't turn on and the blazer keeps rolling over when we try to start it

posibly the gas pump brushes worn out.Try taping under the gas tank with a rubber malet while turning the engine over.If engine starts change the fuel pump .dont drive like this,it might not start a second time.

Thinking about cutting floorboard to access fuel pump in 02 blaser.why didnt engineers do this?

the body and chassis are put together at different plants. the engineers are paid to design quick assymbly lowest cost. adding 1 more door acces may have soct 10 million dollars. they do not care how easy it is to replace after it is out of warranty. we added our own panel to our 2000 firbired. you can add one to you blazer. we just painted it and sealed it with boat rtv to keep out the water. it was alot easier than dropping the full gas tank, plus we had a dirt driveway.

Ran out of gas on my 01 expedition no it wont start

Do you have fuel pressure now since adding fuel?
Maybe you did not run out of gas ......but just happened to run out of fuel pressure caused by a bad fuel pump at a low fuel level?
Maybe you need a fuel pump.

Chevy Blazer won't start; fuel pump needs replacing

Before spending several hundres on a fuel pump, I recommend doing a fuel pressure test. You can get a test gauge pretty cheap at a parts store. If the pump is junk, you raise the truck, lower the fuel tank, unplug the electronics from the pump at the top of the tank, then with a hammer and flat head scrwedrive, gently tap the lock ring in a counter clockwise direction until it pops off. Pull the pump assembly out and install the new one. Reverse directions to install.

2004 nissan titan...ran out of gas

Good chance that even on 4 gallons it may not start I would try for more, prime the fuel pump several times by turning the key on and leaving it on for around 5 seconds then shutting it off and repeating, obviously not trying to start. I've had cases where even small FWD cars won't start even on 4 gallons on a 12 gallon tank. The newer fuel pumps are a closed system that only allow a small portion of fuel into the pump housing to keep contamination down. Let me know if after adding a few more gallons it won't start we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using

Doesn't start only turns over

Sometimes a defective Fuel Pump will run and operate as normal and give you the correct pressures before start up, but can't work fast enough to keep up with the demands of a starting, or running engine. Engine's take a high demand on fuel for startup, its a short period, but a high demand nevertheless.

My opinion is that your Fuel Pump is faulty, Not completely broken, just unable to keep up with fuel demands. Try replacing your Fuel Pump, and while you're at it, be sure to check the lines in the Gas Tank itself for frays, holes, or rips. As that can actually cause the problem too, but is VERY easy to over-look it, as fuel can squirt out of a pinhole at 60psi
