Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
1990 toyota corolla...running perfect for 5 years with the usual maintenance of tyres, timing belt, muffler etc done. it just stopeed running on the highway and had to be towed. we got the brake buster and pump changed to no avail. someone has said it might be the transmission fluid. where can i check for it and how?
plssss help as this is the only car i have!!!
Remove a sparkplug and check for spark. My guess is that the engine is not running?? If no spark, check the fuses, if ok, check the ignition wiring. More than likely you will find a wire has fallen off.
Do Not replace any parts unless they are faulty!
You do have spark, then it will be a fuel prob. I believe this car still uses a carb, not fuel injected. If so, the float valve can get stuck causing the engine to get flooded. Remove the breather, turn the throttle by hand, there should be gas squirting into the throat of the carb. If yes, then the valve is stuck. A cheap fix is to add half a cup of auto trans to the fuel. It should start if you hold the choke open with a screwdriver. Do Not Pump the gas peddle!! After about 5 minutes, take it for a drive! Enjoy Frankster016
