Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer
Replaced the starter and alternator and still doesnt turn. we tried to turn it over from a jump and still no luck. battery is from june 07. plates could be fried? also i havent changed the plugs and the check engine light has been on since jan. went to autozone to see what the problem was abd it was the plugs. the blazer went out on me in late feb. we looked at the owners manual about unlocking the theftlock because there was a full fuel shutdown and the manual said that the theftlock can stop the truck from starting because of the shutdown. if anyone could help out with some solution it would be greatly appreciated
Ok sounds like you got a bit of a problem. You can go to Autozone and see if your battery is big enough for your vehicle first off. Second the basics; does the vehicle have gas, check your gap on your spark plugs they may be wrong, there is a gap on your spark plug wires as well, if you got the engine code at Autozone it should tell you if your coil packs are wrong. Your problem is probaly a fuel pump. First, try turning your ignition on three times but do not start it until the third time, if it fires, it's probaly a fuel pump. Next, if that does not work, try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body and then turn it over. Take the long t-handle screw off the air horn on top of the air horn but you do not have to take the whole air cleaner assembly away from the air box; just lift it to the side and spray the starting fluid into the throttle body. Do not try to open the throttle body like an old caraberautor float ok. I would also change your fuel filter for safe sake. Now, a fuel pump will cost you around 2 to 3 hundred dollars from an autoparts store. To save some money go to under one hundred dollars dot com and you can get a blazer fuel pump for around 70 to 90 dollars. This may be a coil pack problem and they are very costly so which you the best with this endeavor. I own a 98 blazer and I have done numerous, numerous, jobs to it but it has 280,000 miles so I can not complain. The best of luck to you! I would just try this before going and changing more parts. Cold winter months cause hard to start motors a.k.a. chevy's a real challenge and a bad fuel pump can make it impossible to start.
