Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1999 Chevy Blazer won't start

The gas gauge doesn't work properly and because of this I ran out of gas a couple of times. After that I began to have trouble starting it, It would turn over but not start. If I let it sit for a minute or two it would finally start. Now it just turns but will not start at all. Not sure if it the fuel pump, fuel filter or injectors. Are there any other possibilities? Please help & Thanks !!

Fuel sender unit causes bad gas guage. it is an integrated assembly with the fuel pump...you have to pull the tank and replace the fuel pump. this would explain both problems, and is a common chevy problem. get a used one at a junkyard, probably cost you 100 bucks instead of 800 for a new pump.

Try to bang the gas tank with your fist a few times then see if it starts if so buy a new pump may be a complete module

My wife has ran out of gas several times in our 1999 chevy blazer, nowwhen I try to start it the ingine trys to turn over but it wont start like its not getting gas can you hgive me some suggestions


Possibly burned out the fuel pump. Lay next to the truck with your head by the gas tank. Have your wife turn the key on but not crank the engine. You should hear a light whirring sound of the pump priming and it will last a few seconds and stop. If you don't hear the pump priming, thump the tank near the sending unit as she turn the key. If it runs, you'll need to replace the pump. If it still doesn't run, check the fuse. If the fuse is good and you have a volt meter you can trace the wires to the pump and check for voltage (12) as the key is turned on. If it has voltage, replace the pump.

Blazer 1999 won't start got spark new fuel pump


Pull off one injector connector and use a test light or voltmeter to see if one wire has power with key on.
Power to the injectors is fed through the ignition switch, so with key on, you should have power there. The injector ground is inside the ECM. If you have power, you'll have to diagnose the circuit for why computer doesn't ground the circuit when it should.

1999 2door blazer installed new fuel pump 60psi when tested won't start dump gas in intake starts and shuts off ??????


Sounds like your injectors aren't opening if it holds that pressure. Get a "noid light" at parts store that fits your injector harness connection (just a few bucks). Just pull connector off injector and plug in noid light. When you crank engine, the light should blink rapidly. Try all of them, or at least one on each bank (side).
If light doesn't blink, then check your injector electrical circuit. Power to them is fed through your ignition switch, and the ecm grounds that particular injector at proper time to make injector work.

1999 chevy blazer has trouble starting from a cold crank


If your engine is cranking really strong make sure you have proper engine timing. If your engine is having a hard time cranking like its cranking really slow. You probably need to check your battery.
