Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Car is not getting gas

My '94 Geo Tracker, 2 wheel drive, 1.6 liter, automatic,fuel injected car stalled out driving down the freeway. All of a sudden it wasn't getting gas. It didn't sputter or hesitate..just no gas. At the exact moment it quit I saw a flash under the dash in the fuse box area. It had blown a fuse. I've replacd the fuse, but every time I turn the key on ,it blows it out again. It turns over..just won't start. I have no cover for the fuse box, so I don't even know which fuse is blowing out.My Haynes manual does NOT show the fuse box diagrm or any wiring diagrams other than radio, a.c. ,no emissions.I've checked what wiring I can visually,nothing obvious. I don't have an ohm meter or anything really,but need a diagram badly! I have checked, and there is no gas going to the carb/injectors.I'm a case you couldn't tell..haha and really need some girly terms please! Do any of you make house calls? Drinks and dinner at my I thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

I am a GM Goodwrench technician. Bad fuel pumps usually dont blow fuses but faulty pump harnesses do. either way you look at it the tank will probably have to come out of it. the Fuel Pump Module is between 250-768 dollars AC Delco depending on the type you need, and give or take some, around 800 - 1500 dollars for the whole repair at a dealership depending on hourly rates. I'd say your best bet is to have someone with the proper tools work on it, sorry. It really isn't an easy fix because before you go replacing pump modules, especially at 768 bucks a shot, that's a 2002 Blazer the most expensive module i've seen. You really want to have the wiring inspected and make sure a wiring repair wont fix the issue. If you go buy a meter and can check grounds and voltages first, you can give it a go yourself, you can pick up a good meter for 50 bucks if you look at the right places. I would definately check wiring before slappin a new pump in there, you could damage a new pump if the wiring is faulty and then cost yourself even more money.

As much as I would like to take you up on your offer of drinks for car repair, my wife might mind. However as for your Tracker it sounds like you have a bad fuel pump. I believe you're a little techinical minded so check out and go to the DIY section, there you will get all the factory information on your car. I do believe that you will have to remove the fuel tank to replace the pump.

91 geo tracker died while driving cant get it started again

when you crank it, do you smell fuel? if you do, you're getting fuel so try replacing the distributer cap and even the plugs. if no gas smell, the fuel filter needs changing or the fuel pump is bad.

1996 Geo Tracker gas cap has to be exact fuel pressure?

Old post. but this is common on ALL EFI CARS.
great question and is very easy.
btw one of the best posts on the forum best of 1300.
the gas cap must have the proper vacuum breaker (ask STANT for one) if missing the cooling fuel will pull and illegal vacuuum and the gas tank will implode (crush) I have a nice photo of same car doing that.
this vacuum also stalls the fuel pump, as the vacuum builds.
this happens on cooling day not getting hotter day.
to prove this drive with the cap loose and ignore the ECU check light for EVAP failure. (pressure test fails)
loosen the cap key on, 3 times to 5 times to build pump
pressure, the pump only runs key on for 3 sec. then start it up.
the other proof of lost fuel is the test fuel test. (spray)

to google landers. i make this. post.

How many rpm should a 1991 tracker 1.4 auto

The 1991 model was 65 inches high, 142.5 inches long and 64.2 inches wide, with an 86.6-inch wheelbase. Small variations in those dimensions were seen during the course of production, but not more than an inch for any of the measurements. The Tracker is able to tow 1,000 pounds and weighs between 2,238 and 2,338 pounds.Early models of the mini SUV were powered by a 1.6-liter overhead cam 8-valve fuel-injected engine with four inline cylinders, while later models were upgraded to a version of the same engine with 16 valves.The additional valves gave the later models more horsepower and torque. The smaller engine produces 80 horsepower at 5,400 revolutions per minute, and 94 foot-pounds of torque at 3,300 rpm. The larger engine produces 84 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, and 98 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. Equipped with an 11.1-gallon fuel tank, the vehicle gets 23 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with an automatic transmission. With a manual transmission it gets 25 mpg and 27 mpg respectively.

1997 geo tracker no drive but have reverse ,3 speed automatic

You may try putting the trans in 2 or 1, if this doesn't give you any movement check trans fluid levels hot on a level surface. If levels are correct your trans is probably bad.

I started my 92' Geo Tracker and started down my drive way when it just cut off. Now it will not start back, it is getting fire to the distributor cap,is full of gas and wil turn over but not start! Please...

Is the fuel pump running? When you turn the key to the run position (the dash lights come on), you should hear a humming sound coming from the gas tank for a few seconds. Thats the fuel pump running to pressurize the system before starting. It's kind of hard to hear, so get a friend to sit in the car while you lay on the ground near the gas tank. Have them turn on the key and listen. No hum means the fuel pump isnt working.
