Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Stalling Having a problem with stalling. It seems that when it gets hot or on a really hot day or after driving for 20 minutes or more the truck stalls. I can pull over, and have to do it quickly because it seems after a min. or two there are no brakes at all, put it in park and turn the key on it starts right away. Drive for a few more minutes and it stalls again. It will do this all the way home but after it cools down it runs great again, until I try driving for more than 20 min. Also after stalling it will idle high and take off as soon as I put it in gear. Any ideas? Would really appreciate some help.

The break cylinder in your engine goes into a item that looks like a pie. it is a big cylinder. This controls vacuum in and out. The reason it stalls is because this item is bad. I had the same issue and my son and I reoplaced it and all is well. So from the master cylinder it connects to this item. I apologize I forgot the name of it.
I would highly suggest you take it out and take it with you to the autoparts if you intend to DIY. The reason being is that depending on what month your care was made the main piston that attaches to your break pedal from there comes in two different sizes and I learned the hard way that this is the case...
Hope this helps.

My 1988 buick century stall,s after driving. engine warm,s up.won,t start right after stalling.start,s after sitting 10 or 15 minutes


Possibly an ignition module or crank sensor problem. These are the two most common stalling electronics that will cause a stall when they get warm/hot and will then continue to operate once cooled down

Car stalling on hot days!


this is your ignition switch failing. Typical symtoms when stalling, speedometer and tach dropping to zero, some warning lights not lit, power failure. The internal contacts are shorting due to poor design and engineering. This causes vital engine/vehicle electrical failure, causing the stalling(happens more often in hotter/humid weather). There is a recall in place for this in 2002, over 1.5Million vehicles from 97-02 Honda/Acura models affected. Owners were notified in 2002!! If your vehicle is part of this recall, honda may repair for free. Call your local honda dealer with your VIN# at hand, they will give info on this recall and may repair for free. Otherwise the switch cost about $45-$95. hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

Stalls just after idling for more than 3 minutes


I had the same problem. you have to either keep replacing the filter until the line has cleaned out or blow the filter out with an air hose. Tedious but cheap.

After driving for 15 minutes truck stalls,restarts no problem ,but trans races and stalls again. if it sits idle for 2-3 days runs again no problem ,until the 15 minute drive again .the 15 minute drive...


put a OBD II code reader on it see if it has stored any codes if not replace the TPS sensor and the MAF sensor do the replacements at different times so you don't buy one or the other for nothing

There is no such thing as a small fuel leak. Even if the car was running great, it is extremely dangerous. You can "section" the line using a small pipe cutter and brass compression fittings if you don't want to change the entire length (providing it's not really rusted. Most of, if not all your problems can definitely attributed to that leak.

1997 Geo Metro Stalling


After driving for a while and the engine becomes hot, when you park the car for a while, does this "for a while" mean enough time for the engine to cool down or not?

The reason why this is important is because an engine can stall for a number of reasons, and finding out the conditions of its stalling obviously helps narrow down the cause of the stall.

If it stalls, you say, when the engine cools down after being parked for a while, this handy diagnostic article will help assess the cause of your problem:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Stalls_When_Cold.htm

If it stalls again, like you said, after warming up and driving for a bit, the ambient temperature may be too as well as the engine itself, which then you should be inclinde to read this diagnostic article:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Stalls_When_Hot.htm

You may very well be right its due to fuel starvation, particularly as to the malfunctioning of the EGR, as noted in the article.

I'm sure these articles will provide you with great insight.
Good luck!

2004 Cadillac Escalade Engine Stalling when idling in hot weather


Given your high guage temps of 210 degrees and high ambient temperature of 100 degrees, your engine's stalling can very likely be linked to either one of these three causes: 1) vapor lock; 2) percolation; or 3) PCV malfunction. Here's a really good diagnostic article that precisely addresses this issue of yours:

For a older car like yours, sometime sick just like an older people. Car is different, if you can find the reason why cause this kind problem, as soon as you fix it, it will run for a while, but it is not easy, I think when you drive for a while, the engine is hot and inside is over heated, the ring on the piston expanded, that’s cause the engine stalled, after 10 to 15 minutes, the engine cool down, it will start and drive a short distance again and wait until the engine getting hot again, it will stall again.

How do you solve this problem, go to junk yard and find a low mileage engine put in or rebuild your engine.

Hope this can help.
