Chevy Blazer won't start; fuel pump needs replacing

Chevy Blazer stopped on me this weekend while driving down the interstate...It started sputtering like it was out of gas, but when put gas in the Blazer it still would not start up, the 'Triple A' guy said it was my fuel pump. So How do I replace the fuel pump on my 2001 4-door Chevy Blazer?

Before spending several hundres on a fuel pump, I recommend doing a fuel pressure test. You can get a test gauge pretty cheap at a parts store. If the pump is junk, you raise the truck, lower the fuel tank, unplug the electronics from the pump at the top of the tank, then with a hammer and flat head scrwedrive, gently tap the lock ring in a counter clockwise direction until it pops off. Pull the pump assembly out and install the new one. Reverse directions to install.

I have a 97 Chevy Blazer that will crank but not start. I can get the vehicle started with the help of starting fluid or gasoline put in the throttle body but throttle response while driving is poor. ...


if it starts with starting fluid. its not getting any fuel to engine. first check the fuse and relay for fuel pump. then make sure fuel pump comes on when you try to start it. its only on for a few seconds when starting. then when driving its on all the time. good-day ! fuel filter also if need be.

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...


Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

Wont start unless you pour gas down throutle body on 2001 chevy blazer


You'll need to see if your fuel pump is providing fuel pressure. First test would be to take off fuel cap, listen through filler tube as someone turns ignition on for a few seconds, then off for a few seconds. Repeat a few times you should hear the fuel pump start then stop as it builds pressure.

No noise, then test voltage coming to pump if yes, 12 volts, replace fuel pump. Test ground also before replacing pump.

I would expect it to be this as the computer wouldn't allow the vehicle to run with fuel being poured into the engine otherwise.

If it's pumping, you will need to do pressure testing to determine if it pumps enough, or just replace it as either just the pump, or the complete pump assembly that drops into the tank rather easily.

Pumps are available at dealers OEM, discount auto parts stores, and I've had good luck with pumps that I've bought on eBay.



good luck

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.


Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?

97 Blazer low fuel pressure and stalls in gear


If you have the spider fuel system, fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi. After it starts it will run with less pressure. Are you using quality brand new fuel pumps?
This fuel system is noted for problems, including the fuel poppets.
