Question about 2000 Chevrolet 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.

take it to an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote
initial cause was probably a lack of pre use inspection

If it is only doing this in overdrive lock up, tap the brake if it quits see a transmission man your torque converter might be bad

change the fuel filter, check the fuse for the sending unit and the fuel pump relay and if all these test good it maybe the pump getting weak

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

Testimonial: "thank u for the help. i really hope this is it causee i dont have the time/ funds for head jobs n injectors or a fuel pressure regulator"
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.
