Can you hear the pump in tank running? it should come on for a few seconds when you cut key on. sometimes you can beat on tank with your hand while someone cycles key on and get the pump to kick in. this is a temp fix though if you need a pump i find it easier to remove the bed to gain access to tank.

I have a 97 Chevy Blazer that will crank but not start. I can get the vehicle started with the help of starting fluid or gasoline put in the throttle body but throttle response while driving is poor. ...


if it starts with starting fluid. its not getting any fuel to engine. first check the fuse and relay for fuel pump. then make sure fuel pump comes on when you try to start it. its only on for a few seconds when starting. then when driving its on all the time. good-day ! fuel filter also if need be.

Engine cranks but won't start


I firstly would check relay. You can use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the relay. If you get a reading, it is good, If not it is bad. Than disconnect fuel pump wire harness and do the same.

Engine cranks but won't start


If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.

Fuel pump relay hot


You could have a loose connection going to the relay. Loose or bad connections cause amperage to rise causing heat to rise. Check the plug holes where the relay pins plug in. Check for blackened metal or melting plastic around the pins. If so, check under the relay box for burnt wires, etc. and repair.

Fuel pump is most likely the cause. Probably just barely making the required pressure to start. Needs to maintain 60-66 psi while cranking to start.
