I would verify fuel pressure is in spec.On the back of the motor on the drivers side you will find a shrader valve(kinda like a valve stem on a tire)Its just alittle larger.You can buy a fuel pressure gauge at your local parts house and they can give you the spec as well.If its not in spec the pump is in the gas tank.

Check the fuel pressure when it won't start also check for spark when it is not starting

My Chevy venture 2002 van doesn't start. Good


You replace parts as part of your preventative
maintenance program,not to solve a problem
When working on a problem only component testing
will find the issues
You need to check for fuel pressure at the motor with a gauge
You check spark with a test plug you buy,not ground a plug
or wire on the vehicle
You can check for compression or cylinder leak down
to test some mechanical issues
I would assume ALL Fuse & links have been checked,as
well as battery voltage 12.6 v or more & cables etc
The ignition switch could be bad,turns starter but not all
the internal contacts are good

I'm having problems with a 2002 Chevy Blazer 4.3L not turning over after changing the plugs


Check the firing order. If you took all the plug wires off at the same time, then there is the problem. Back firing out of the intake is a sure sign the firing order is wrong.

Truck misses after it is warmed up.


Start with a tune up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter and that might cure the PO300B code, hope this helps, Gary

My 2002 trailblazer was missing, so I took it to the shop. They put a tune-up on it, but it is still missing. They said I need a timing chain, truck has 110,000 miles.


Timing chain usually does not cause a miss. It may run sluggish or even backfire, but a miss is like a spark plug with the wire off. Like a dead cylinder. Chevy timing chains do stretch but those engines can handle quite abit of timing. I had one with 120K miles and it was only off 4 degrees. That's nothing for chevy to handle. A tune up is usually nothing but a set of plugs and a hook up to a diagnostic machine. I would look deeper. Go out at night, start the engine with the hood open. Make sure you are in a very dark place. Look for sparks jumping from plug wire. Another way to to use a spray bottle of water. Spray a very fine mist of water around the wires. If they are bad, a spark will jump. Check cap for deposits. You can only hope that the plugs were gapped right.
Good luck
