If the starter turns over, and you have checked for a spark, that leaves one thing, no fuel=bad fuel pump. A simple pressure test at a service center should give you some insight. I had a 96 Jeep the in tank fuel pump that went bad, and it would not start. It was just after I had fueled up at the gas station. It started, shut off, started shut off sooner, then no start at all. Maybe it is just a small electronic issue that a code was thrown for and will be a simpler fix. Good luck.

Where is the fuel pump fuse located on my 1998 chevy blazer

It is in the fuel tank,of course the fuel tank will have to be removed to access the fuel pump,this can be done by removing the filler tube from the fuel tank,and removing the straps that hold the tank up in the vehicle.Use a jack,and have someone help you lower the tank enough to remove the wire harness connector,and the fuel lines,then lower the tank,with help,down,and out from under the vehicle.Then remove the retaining ring with a brass punch and hammer,it turns counter clock wise,and the unit just lifts out,mark it ,so it will be easy to align when installing the new pump assembely.If this was at all helpful,please rate,and thank you.

2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down

either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

Sounds like water/debris in the gas tank. Try adding dry gas to the tank. Changing the fuel filter also a good idea.

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.
