An easy way to check to see if the fuel pump is running is to take off the gas cap and stick a piece of hose down the fiiler pipe. Listen through the hose while somebody turns the ignition on . Fuel pump should run for 5 seconds and shut off.

Ny 1989 chevy blazer S-10 V6 2WD won't st,art,


I don't think 3 months makes stale gas, maybe year old gas, but not your short time. And if not mistaken, I think you have throttle body injection on an '89 chevy, although chevy always was a little behind the curve on new improvements to cars. hint, hint.
The computer has everything to do with it. it controls ignition timing, it controls spark, it controls the fuel pump and the injectors. Since it won't start with starter fluid or gas, next step is to look into the ignition system. Check for spark on a couple of spark plug wires. If you have a blue, snapping spark, you can assume your ignition system is working well enough to start the engine. Take a spare spark plug or pull one of your plugs from engine, attach the plug wire onto it, and lay the plug on a metal piece of the top of engine-the spark plug hex and threads is the natural ground for the plug, so if you lay the threads on a metal piece, or hold it tight against a steel bolt, you can observe the spark jumping the gap, and no danger of getting shocked. But if you hold it, just in case, wear a glove or wrap a heavy cloth or rag around the wire. Remember, a blue energetic spark has to be seen to verify good ignition. Oh yes, you need a helper to crank the engine over while you watch for spark. If no spark, and you have a distributor, check the coil wires output at the end that connects to center top of distributor.Pull it from distributor and hold the metal end terminal no more than 1/4 inch from a ground source, a bolt or the frame, or an engine bracket. Helper has to crank the engine over, and watch for good blue spark. If no spark there-ignition: coil, crank position sensor (or maybe a pickup coil inside your distributor-same function), ignition control module, computer, and all the associated wiring.
If coil has spark, but none at plug wire ends, inspect closely the distributor cap and rotor. not passing current or shorting out there.
So the basics are, to run, the engine needs gas, air, compression, and a timely spark.

'97 Chevy Blazer LS. 77 K miles. At what mileage is the suggested timing belt change for these models or is it change them when they break?


Chevy blazers dont have timing belts they have chains. The chains get noisey on some engines that are run hard or the oil changes are missed. Sometimes these engines live their whole life if not run too hard without changing the chain. Noise lower gas mileage uneven idel hesate to accerate. These are all things that happen over 100 thou miles. Many go way farther with no problems

I have a 2000 chevy blazer 4.3l engine\is backfiring


Start by checking each cylinder for spark with a good spark tester. A misifre is either spark or fuel, so you can cut the problem in half. The engine light is probably on due to the misfire.

1997 Chevy Blazer will not go in overdrive


If you open the hood on top of engine in front you will see what looks like a tempature sending unit it screws into the intake with a 2 wire plug on it, i cant remember what its called, but i know when truck gets to tempature it sends a signal down to trans. so it will shift into overdrive, when it goes bad it won't send the signal hense no overdrive. I have chg. a couple of them with a simmler problem you got and it fixed them. $10.00 at autozone.

Start on the engine


either your inlet valves are not fully closing (treat fuel system with redex for a few weeks to remove any carbon build up and allow valves to fully close) or ignition timing is out and needs resetting with a strobe
