2001 Chevy Blazer has check engine light on and hard to start.
The Blazer takes about 5-10 trys to get started but runs good after it starts. It seems to start better in the cold weather. The code is the evap. emissions. I have had this looked at by my local garage but it always comes back on.

See if it has the double stacked positive cable ends at the battery, Sometimes one won't make a good connection, 1 goes to the starter the other feeds the rest of the electrical system, Also check make sure your ignition switch isn't going bad, NOT the key and tumbler but the electrical switch itself...Make sure your starter wiring is tight also..
Check coolant inside the radiator add if nesesery
start engine for 10 minuts or let the gauge temperature in the midel
stop the engine and touch the lower radiator hose if it is not hot renew the termostat .if hot termostat is good
restart the engine and check if electiric fan run when engine about 200 Fahrenheit
let me know for more help
It sounds to me that your engine shut itself off when it was overheated. If that's the case then you are looking at a major engine repair based on what you are telling us.An engine that gets hot enough to shut itself off does serious damage internally before it dies. You will need to take it to a shop to a complete diagnosis. Hope this helps.
Either the start relay is stuck, the ignition switch is defective or someone messed up the wiring. I'd start by checking out the relay then check the ignition by checking for battery voltage when the ignition is turned to start (at the relay)
HI,When electrical components such as a stater motor get hot they draw more amperage thus making it harder to turn over the motor. There are 3 possible things going bad (1) Battery (2) Battery Cables (corrosion) (3) Starter. I hope this helps lead you to the proper diagnoses.
Check the mass air flow sensor. Unplug it, then try to start the engine. If it starts and runs ok replace the sensor. Make sure the wiring is good to the sensor, The wires may break inside the covering near the connector ends.
1) Is the service engine soon light ever on when engine is running?
2) Per your description I would look at the ECT sending unit. It sends coolant temperature information the the Engine Control Module for proper fuel delivery for cold engine start. It may have lost its calibration.
Let me know.
