How about the fuel pump...are you getting the fuel to the cylinders? Is the fuel making it through the fuel line through the fuel filter? Drop a few drops in 1 cylinder, if it fires, you have a fuel problem. Does it turn over? If not check out the motor starter!

    Did it FIRE? If not, check out the distributor, rotor, plugs low voltage wire to the distributor...

    yes it's turning over

  • Leigh Perlmutter
    Leigh Perlmutter Dec 31, 2012

    Open up the distributor! It may be firing only on one or two cylinders. The rotor may be bad or even the cap! Check for carbon deposits or corrosion on the rotor and distributor cap!

    Leigh Perlmutter Dec 31, 2012

    You too! I guess you found corrosion on the cap...change the rotor at the same time, avoid future problems!

    still no start.think it may have jumped time.tryed to turn the dist. but seems like the dist clamp is stuck to it ntched to keep it from moving or just stuck

  • Leigh Perlmutter
    Leigh Perlmutter Jan 03, 2013

    The clamp on the bottom of the distributor has a bolt on it that you should be able to loosten. If you do you will need to get a timing light and yellow marking chalk and retime the engine. There are complete instructions in the Haynes automobile book available at your lical parts store specifically for '96 Chevy Blazer!

  • cody2055

  • Leigh Perlmutter

sounds like youve really done your home work all that comes to mind now is try a cam posistion sensor this would keep your car from starting as well if that is good you can aslo try a crank sensor. you will get all of the readings that you are getting and these sensors can still be bad.

well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

2002 Chevy Blazer with starting problem. It will start sometimes but mostly not. Runs great when it does start. Starter cranks fine. Has new fuel filter and gas lines.

You need 3 things for your vehicle to start and run.. Fuel, spark and air. If you've recently replaced the fuel filter I'd have the fuel pumps electrical connections checked out. It could possibly be on its way out. Also check all spark plugs, wires and coil pack to make sure nothing is damaged on the "spark system". Then of course make sure the filter is clean and that all of your sensors monitoring the air flow into the throttle body are connected. From personal experience though, I'd say it sound like the fuel pump isn't always doing what it should upon initial start up and that's where I'd direct my attention.

1992 mx-3 v6 won't start. will hit sparaticly as if about to start but just won't catch. checked crank pos. sensor. need suggestions on how to proceed.

Check for a blue snapping spark on 2 or 3 plug wires(or all of them). If you get good spark, then ignition is likely not the problem. A weak or sporadic spark could be a bad coil or coil pack, or a bad ignition module (the ignitor).Check the coils with a volt-ohmmeter per the specs for your car. The ignitor can be tested at a parts store.
If spark is good, check fuel filter, fuel pressure, check timing marks on crank pulley and cam marks, Try a little starting fluid in the air intake and see if it runs for a moment. If so, then it's likely a fuel delivery problem. If no change, then it's likely an ignition circuit problem.
Good luck.

1999 chev blazer won't start new fuel pump

So, do you hear the pump buzz on, when key is on? If that's good, then check your ignition circuit: check for spark at a plug. Use insulated pliers, hold end of plug wire 1/4 inch form engine bolt or ground source. When cranked, you should see a bright blue spark. Yes? Try another plug wire, too. No? Try another plug wire. If you have NO spark, could be your coil, coil pack, crank position sensor, ignition module. I would recommend using a diagnostic flow-chart to go through the ignition circuit. That way, you are not replacing unecessary parts_Expensive! Of course, if you have spark at plugs, your ignition circuit is good! Then you have to look further, like your injector circuit. Good luck.

I have a 94 S10 blazer/Tahoe "yes It is" engine code W with a no start problem. I thought it was the Fuel pump, But after replacing it the vehicle won't start. It is getting spark and if I...

if no crank sensor by timing cover, some vehicles are controlled at the distributor. the 95-96 have sensor by cover . before 1995 this its controlled by distributor. there is no "crank sensor" on that engine the pick-up coil inside the distributor acts as the crank reference for that engine. have a good day !! 4.3 vortex engine.

Will not start 96 blazer

Go back to basics. Check if you have spark. From the coil and the plugs. Check if you have fuel pressure, check if you have compression on all cylinders. If you have all three action should happen.
