Impossible to answer this with just that info. why did u replace filter, was it faulty? quick guess is that either it was installed wrong or the hose isn't attached properly.

Where is the fuel sensor on a 1996 1500 silverado. If truck sets for about two days it doesn't want too start

You could have an air leak between the tank and engine. If you have had a fuel filter replaced recently I would start there. As the pump sucks fuel from the front you can have an air leak and not fuel leak because suction creates a vacumme and fuel leak requires preasure

No power, smells like gas all the time

this could be numerous things but i will give you no or low cost....chech for leaks in the gas line first,or even a leaky tank/ fuel filter and catalitic converter next...climb under and cbang the convertwer with a hammer to lossen up carbon deposits. i would then replace fuel filter and also AIR FILTER...check that for sure.

96 blazer stalls only when turning left.also gas gauge reads 1/2 tank when it is full.fuel pump & filter replaced,two o2 sensors also replaced

Have you tried replacing the filter and power steering fluid? also that is a year were some had the hydrostatic steering pump and if a check valve is leaking it would or could cause your problem. And it would be only when you were going to turn, since in the straight forward position there is little Resistance to the power steering pump.

Roll over valve problems

There is an o-ring for a seal on the end of the tube. It is either missing or cut. Replace the o ring and make sure the end is smooth. Should fix your leak.

My 1996 blazer wont start

Time to replace the fuel filter. It's not a hard job actually. And it's a VERY common thing to go wrong. I'd change the fuel filter and then run some fuel treatment through the tank afterwards. Believe it or not, I've noticed that a nice bottle of fuel treatment really conditions a fuel filter well.

Hope this helps you out.
