    ok thanks. water pump tho never know when its going to go out if that is the problem. Tensioner may be. I will be flushing out radiator soon and putting in new thermostat ,, might help the pump if that is the case. A dealer did a test and claimed the power steering needed a flush out too. Any thought s on that ?

2002 Chev Blazer 4wd with 4.3. Cold or warm the engine cranks for several seconds before it fires. Then it runs but is flooded and takes a while to clear.

it sounds like you may have a pressure problem , not a flooding issue , this is a fuel injected motor and is probably losing fuel pressure , this could be at the gas tank , fill cap , fuel filter, to the injector rail , many places to check , I would have this checked by a pro as this is a fuel issue "BOOM"

You probably have air between the master cylinder and the abs pump. Fill the reservior and have someone pump the brake and bleed the primary lines at the abs pump. Good luck.

Truck fails to start

The 01 DuraMax trucks do not have a block heater, unless they were special ordered with one. Just turn the key to the on position a few times before you try to crank it, and hold the accelerator partially down while doing it. However, don't hold the accelerator if it starts to crank, it DOES need a minute to warm up before being revved. Also, use a diesel treatment when its cold, it helps a lot.
