I could be driving down the road doing 60 and it will stall and go from 60 right to 0. with no check engine light i've had it to dofferent shops and they tell me the only thing i can do is just keep pouring momey in parts into it and just hope the problem stops. i need a specific answer. it jerks when i'm driving down the road because it's trying to stall and it catches itself, makes absolutely no noises before it stalls either.

    Do you have any codes? Just because you don't have an engine light doesn't always mean you don't have stored codes.

Had this problem on my 98 chevy blazer, turned out to be a bad connection to the coil, not the one from the distributor. It was the one from the wiring harness. try wiggling the wires while it is on and if it stalls all you have to do is unplug the connector and get in there with a pick type tool and make the connection tighter. or do like i did and pop each wire out and fix it that way.
If this one not it, then try wiggling other wires, you might get lucky!

Sounds to me to be a ground issue. I don't know how much of a machanic you are, but i think its time to take the bull by the horns and maybe fix it yourself. What you need to do, and you may get alittle dirty in the process and it might take a while is find every ground wire and strap( and hot wires too) check to see if there broke, loose, dirty whatever, start at the back around gas tank and work yourself forward. If you half to go to the dealers parts dept. and get a diagram of all the ground straps and ground wires for your blazer they will print you one out. Just sounds to me they want to take your money and not fix the problem.

96 Blazer stalls when hot on hotest days


I had a similar problem on my 95 jimmy. It was something that took a lot of time and money to diagnose, but now 3 years later...no proplems. Emissions requires the truck to have an EGR valve (exhaust gas recycle) and this deposits gunk (carbon residue) on your MAF (mass air flow sensor) If you catch it in time you can use a carbon cleaner from Autozone or checker Lightly on the MassAirFlow sensor. If not in time you may have to have either the MAF or EGR valve replaced and these are expensive. After a long period of time being undetected eventually the EGR valve will start smelling like sulfer, this means its to late to clean and save!

Hope this helps
