Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Is the engine busted? 2000 Chevy Blazer

I noticed a slight hesitation and stutter the last few days when accelerating. Last night I start to hear a thumping sound from the left side of the hood while driving. I turned off the radio to hear better and sure enough, something wasn't right. After about 200 meters the blazer stalled. I checked under the hood and there was either oil or power steering fluid all over. Looks as if there was an eruption of some kind. To make matters worse, the battery died about 10 minutes after. What happened?

Sounds like the serpentine belt came apart causing damage to power steering pump reservoir (oil) . Alternator will not charge battery with slipping or no belt.

No idea
take it to an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote
initial cause was probably a lack of pre use inspection

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Blazer 2dr 2wd. P0300 multiple misfire,

that smell is a dead give away. your conv. is clogging when it gets hot, and you have a bad oxy sensor. the reason for the converter is the 4door is more popular, so they more relacement parts for it. If you go to your local exhaust shio like we have at home, they can save you a ton on price and parts, and they will make it inspection safe for sure. after you get the work done, make sure you add a can of SEAFOAM to tank, and every 5000 miles to keep emission and fuel parts clean. the ethanol gas is causing terrible problems, and for some reason, especially GM vehiles(they don't know why yet) good luck

SOURCE: Oil hose leak 97 4x4 Blazer

Oil cooler lines that lead to your radiator or to a cooler mounted in front of radiator.The hoses are quick couplers with o-rings so there is no way to tighten. I don't know why they would leek so often but they usualy go bad where the rubber line gets crimped to the steel line.Not sure if you can get a different oil filter block without the oil cooler line hook ups.This way you can eliminate the cooler lines,or remove the quick couplers at both ends of where your cooler lines hook up and just run hydraulic hoses in place of your coller lines.Where i live you can get hydraulic hoses made at hundreds of places but may not be so redily avalible where you are.

Car stutters/ hesitates


Well I am not a mechanic, but I am fairly handy with a wrench. My initial suspect would be some sort of transmission issue whether it be mechanical or sensor related.Is it more noticeable when accelerating slowly vs. a quick acceleration? That could mean a torque converter. When is the last time that you had the transmission fluid changed? A good shop should be able to rule out many issues by looking at the fluid that comes out (looking for metal shavings and the like). Taking your car to a transmission specialist may be your next viable option. Hope this helps

i had the same issue with my 96 chevy 1500. i sprayed just a little bit of starting fluid into the throttle body to see if it would fire on that. when it did i knew i had spark. turned out to be the fuel pump. try it and see what happens. all you need is just a quick spray. also i noticed that when i turned my key to the on position, i didn't hear the pump kick on to pressurize to lines.

Blazer wont start


You are getting good spark to the plugs? Have to assume you retimed it after you changed the rotor and cap. Wires are good?

Could be the ignition module, but they usually are either good or bad and not itermittent(sp)...

If it trying but just not 'catching'.. seems like a timing issue, or possibly the coil (although coils tend to be good or bad as well)

Engine knocking right after a tune up on a 2000 hevy blazer LS


I would say look at each of your plugs. Knocking noise usually come from pre-ignition. So your most likely not getting a good spark in one of the cylinders.

You could have:
Fouled a plug with a piece of engine dirt
Changed the gap while placing it in the engine
Broke a plug wire
Also check to make sure the plugs are in the same heat range (ie exact replacements)

A slight hesitation after engine shut off due to engine running rich meaning not meeting golden air:gas ratio of 14.6:1 so fuel residue in chamber continue to burn for the last moment.
