Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer
I just replaced my fuel pump about 4 months ago and now my blazer is getting very bad gas mileage. I fill up and right at 1/2 tank I've only gone 100 or so miles. Also, I'll be driving and the oil pressure goes up as I step on the gas and then goes down when I step on the break. My blazer has also been dying on me recently while I'm driving. It'll turn over but it's not getting fuel. I'll wait about 5 - 10 mins and then try again and it'll start but only to die about 5 miles down the road again. I just tuned it up about a month ago (new spark plugs/wires, dist. cap & rotor, new air filter, new oil filter, etc).
I read in my Haynes book that if the oil pressure is not is below the specified pressure level that I should check the oil pressure switch/circuit because it'll act as a fuel pressure cut off device. Is this true? If so, where the heck is my oil pressure switch? For some reason the book doesn't say where it's at.
I would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks!!

Well, your not much better off than me! i get 1/2 tank around 120 or 130 miles. The only reason the oil pressure would go down is because your not stepping on the gas, mine does the same. does your pump shut off if you turn the key to the "on" position (position before you start) and at that position, does the pump shut off?
