1997 chevrolet blazer unable to start after long storage

1997 Chevrolet Blazer has been stored for a long time without starting the engine. I have replaced the battery and added about 6 gallons of fresh gasoline to the tank that is half-full of old gas. The engine cranks good but will not start. Could it be a vapor lock? What else do you suggest I try? Thanks for your help!

No that is not vapor lock, that doesn't happen on newer cars and trucks. Have you had it checked for fault codes?

SOURCE: ac clutch replacement on a 2002 chevrolet blazer

if the "hold-in" coil for the compressor shaft is good, take a "butterfly" impact wrench (due to space limitations), then remove shaft nut and very carefully put nut on shaft loose and rap the end of the shaft with light forward pressure applied to clutch, it sometimes works this way, otherwise you'll need to rent an A/C clutch removal tool at a parts store, but remember be very careful how hard you rap shaft and do it with something like hard plastic/wood

Looking for relay for fuel pump 1997 blazer

Hi Shiela,

Before posting this, I took a look at your profile. I noticed that you have posted several questions regarding your 1997 Blazer including "Where is starter relay", "starter works fine engin will not start" and now you are looking for the fuel pump relay.

I just thought I would mention that if you want to find out why your Blazer will not start, you are going about it the wrong way. The way you are trying to do this will take a lot of time, and looking for parts to replace without even identifying which SYSTEM is keeping your Blazer from running can be EXTREMELY COSTLY.
If you have a digital multimeter and a little knowledge of how to use it, I would be glad to guide you through the process of troubleshooting this thing in the least amout of time without wasting a bunch of money replacing parts that your truck does not need.

Just click on my profile picture below and go to my FixYa page. Click the tab that says "Pro Services". When the page opens up, click any of the services listed. (It doesn;t really matter which one - they will ALL connect you with me) Sign up for Email support. Be sure to include the Year, Make, Model, Engine Size, and a brief description of what we are trying to fix in your message (just so I don't mix you up with someone else).

ANYWAY, with all that said,
Your fuel pump relay is located behind the glove box in the relay center.

I would get under it and have a visual inspection of the universal joints. Fuel pumps for that truck usually either work or dont without an 'in between problem'

Start on the engine

either your inlet valves are not fully closing (treat fuel system with redex for a few weeks to remove any carbon build up and allow valves to fully close) or ignition timing is out and needs resetting with a strobe
