When i go to start my 1994 chevy blazer it sound like it is tight or hard to start

If it is difficult to crank, you could remove the belt to make sure none of the pulleys are stuck.
Could be a weak starter or battery too.

Car will not crank up. When you turn the key in the ignition you hear tic,tic,tic,tic, tic...the lights come on, the doors lock and the radio comes on.

If the battery is old, it may no longer have the cranking amp it needs to turn the starter. If you have a multi-meter. Check the load on the battery when you get someone to start the engine, if the meter reads that it drops below 10.5 volts. You need a new battery, if the readings are good, then you'll need a new starter.

Good luck and keep us posted, a set of good jumper cables and another car may help get the engine started for now by boosting the battery.

Hi im having problem to start my 2005 escape,when im having problem and i turn the key the only thing it does is a tic tic tic tic and when i boost it, it will start no problem and could be having no...

Well, it could be the alternator or the starter, but I would definitely try to check the connections at the battery to make sure that when they are removed they look shiny and clean at the contact points.

If the battery is charged up, it should have enough power to turn any starter on the market that is in good condition.

To determine what is bad, I would take it to a battery retailer like Sears or Walmart and have them actually test the battery/starter/charging system with their computerized device.

That way, you can get to the bottom of things within minutes.

A good starter should draw 75 to 110 amps and turn the starter vigorously.
If the starter draws only 1 or 2 amps and doesn't turn, the solenoid is bad, but a new starter is indicated.

If the battery is charged up, then it's not the alternator. However, remember this, that batteries only last 3 years on the average as I learned at Sears Roebuck & Co. as a battery replacement technician. So, if your battery is older than that, then it should be replaced for dependability.

Good luck on this repair.

Where is the starter located on a 1994 350 Chevy Blazer Full Size, 4x4, V8 5.7?

it's under the vehicle, should ge on the passengers' side, next to the oil pan. If you follow the positive battery cable, it'll lead you right to it.

How to replace a starter on 1994 gmc sierra 1500 with a 350 engine

unhook the battery, there are 2 wires on the starter solenoid, 1 is a 5/16 nut and the other is a 9/16 nut remove those wires. this maybe easier to remove the heat shield first. next ther are two 9/16 bolts holding the starter in position, remove, and the starter will come out, about a 15min job

Check the voltage on your battery. When the battery is low, you will still have lights and what not but not enough juice to start the car. Check the condition of your battery cables especially your ground. If everything check out fine, your problem may be a bad starter or the solenoid. If you replace the starter, replace the solenoid with it. Be sure to check the cable from the starter solenoid to the starter.
