Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1999 blazer wont start??

1999 Blazer 4.3L, 5 spd, 4wd... sat for about 6 months in NY...Had a hole in the gas tank and a broken fuel pump... So 2 weeks or so ago I replaced the tank with a used one and put a brand new Fuel pump in. Blazer turned over and drove fine.. It had to sit for a short period of the last 2 weeks or so... today I climbed in and went to crank it, the battery was almost dead and it would not turn over. I hooked the battery up to my Dakota with jumper cables, So I was definately gettin enough power for crank.... However It would just turn over and over

    who would have thought a 6 month old battery would be bad! It just didnt have the cranking power to turn the vehicle over. I charged it up and she fired right up!

Your battery is either faulty or ther is a parasitic drain, have it checked out at parts house. With a good battery installed, spray some starter fluid into intake housing. If it starts, then dies, you have fuel pressure/delivery problems. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the key? Hope this helps.

I baught a 1999 chevy blazer from a man a month ago, I started smelling gas a week arter I vaught it.I called the man and he told me he replaced the fuel pump.I checked for leaks I couldn't find any.what...


The gas vapor return hose may have come off the fuel pump, it's just held on with a hose clamp, the hose may have came off. It attaches at the top of the tank, you may need to lower the gas a tank some to see if everything is connected.

THE FUEL PUMP IS BAD.

if your losing fuel pressure after the pump runs the drain back valve in the pump has failed.

and i doubt that you are seeing enough fuel pressure to run a vortec engine.

low fuel pressure equals a non running vortec

2001 chevy blazer not starting


I had this same problem with my 1997 Blazer, which required a fuel pump replacement as Nitrobike said. The sign to look for is when you get in the Blazer, turn your key forward to the accessory position, but not the start position. You should hear the fuel pump charging. It sounds like a hissing or whirring noise for about 2-3 seconds while it pumps fuel into the lines to prime the engine.

Fuel pump replacement isn't cheap, about $700-$1000.
