It sounds like this maybe the fuel pump mate if theres no fuel going to filter it will be located somewhere near the back of the car

Go to the auto parts and get a container of Heat fuel treatment and get a new fuel filter also. Then pour in the proper amount of fuel treatment and change the fuel filter. This should fix your problem. Also when was the last time you changed the air filter. This would help it run better and increase your mileage.

Car starts , idles a few seconds, then stalls


Could be a plugged fuel filter; very old gas (car has been sitting unused for some time) has pasted through fuel filter and clogged it. Fuel pump in gas tank is weak and the electric motor in fuel pump runs, gets hot and stops. Have someone listen behind the back bumper away from muffler. The sound of a fuel pump can be heard close to the underside of fuel tank (high pitch whine). If the sound stops before the car dies...that would indicate a faulty fuel pump.

I live in Las Vegas Nevada and it gets pretty hot Blazer dies out


I do not know what year your truck is but I would remove the ignition module from inside the distributer and remove the rotor so you would have access to the module. Take the module to oreillys and have them test it. Sometimes they make the car act like the car is running out of gas.

Sometimes my jeep sputters like it is running out of gas but it isnt then when i press the gas all the way to the floor it does nothing ,and then it dies if i shut it off and crank it back up it its fine...


The first thing I check for this sort of symptom is the fuel filter. Sometimes you get a bad load of gas with sand or other stuff in it, and it clogs the filter. When you try to accelerate, it either fails to respond or dies. When the engine is off, some of the material seems to fall off and it will run again for a while. It's the cheapest thing to replace, and usually easy to do, so it never hurts to try.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

Vehicle sputtering and missing likes its going to die at stops


It could really be any of those things. Those are normal wear and tear items that would be changed in a tune-up, when's the last time you had one?
