Question about 1987 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

87 K5 was running yesterday this morning went to leave and dome light, headlights, check engine light and fuel pump arent working.

I checked all the fuses they are all good. Replaced the fuel pump relay, that wasn't it. It was running a little rough and every so often engine light would come on with a code 44 I believe, changed O2 sensor as well as the TPS.

It has to do with the secondary air intake. first check for any cracks or leaks in the air intake system. most cars have a plastic routing tube that cracks or gets a hole in it from friction . could be even a bad clamp.check these places first. you might want to disassemble the whole air intake hose apparatus so you can really see whats going on on the bottom side.good luck ,and give me a rating if it helps,Gary

SOURCE: Check Engine Light - O2 Sensor - bank 1 running lean

you should have three oxygen sensors on your car, one for each bank of three cylinders; should be towards the Y pipe on each exhaust manifold. Additionally you should have one on the exhaust pipe before the cadilitic converter.

SOURCE: Rough running and rough idle

Doesnt sound at all like an electrical control issue... more like a tune up...
How many miles? If its hard to start its typically due to spark plugs being worn down with age.. that engine has individual coils per cylinder so there are no "cap, rotor or wires" involved... just replace the plugs, they are platinum and they are about 8-9$$ each x8... but that is what you need

SOURCE: 1987 chevy s10 2.5l tbi will not start. changed

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

Do you know if the plugs were changed, a bad or broken plug will also cause rough idle and slow acceleration?

Check your fuel pressure, there are Relays to check. Sometimes the pump is so weak that it delivers enough to start the engine and can not keep up. It is also built to shut down the fuel if the engine dies.

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump run. As for the smoke, with the automatic shut-offs occurring, there is moisture and incomplete combustion gases leaving the tailpipe.

Not starting which relay controls fuel pump

1994 ford Bronco was starting and running fine. My daughter drove it 3 miles to school that morning then a few hours later she went to start it and it would'nt start. The door chime and all the dome lights, lights on dash lite up as normal and when you turned the key to (start) position you could hear the fuel pump then it just would click and not turn over and start. Jumped the battery that didn't work. Had it towed home and tried a few more times that night to get it to start but no luck. Next afternoon went to check it out again and for the heck of it thought id try starting it. Would'nt ya know it..It STARTED right up? After checking Battery and solenoid..etc I thought it was the starter but now im not sure.

My 87 k5 blazer headlights don't turn on when the car is started and running any more... all 4 headlights turn on fine when I pull the lever all the way out for high beams

The vehicle should not have to be running for head lights to burn.If high beams work,then the low beam head lights could be burned out,even though they light up with high beams.The dimmer switch,can be the problem if the head lights only work on high beam.

Changed motors in my 1998 caravan, runs good at times, but then acts like not getting fuel. Put new gas filter and fuel pump on what could cause this. Drove to work yesterday morning ran fine. when got off...

You are a little vag on info,is there a mil light on, check for dtc's, when it does not crank, does the starter just clicks, replace the contacts in the soleniod, when it just turns over, is there spark, if not, you might have a problem with the cranks sensor, if it was not removed before the engine was pulled, about the 2 oclock postion on the trans bell housing , looking at the rear of engine, if this problem was not there before the engine swap, suppect the crank sensor. have you checked fuel pressure, even if the pump is new. are all the components of your swap eng the same as old engine, injectors, sensors, if you can share more info, I will help you further. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP.

I have a 1987 k5 blazer was coming home and check eng. light came on and started to sputter the next morning the fuel pump would not come on and it wont start??

first ... look in the fuse panel.. in the engine compartment near the battery for the fuel pump relay.... replace that... if still no sound from the fuel pump it has likely failed. use a meter to test for voltage at the fuel pump.... or use a car battery to apply voltage to the fuel pump directly... if it starts up the issue is elsewhere. to replace the fuel pump you will likely need to drop the fuel tank.

Check the whole fuel delivery system. Check the injectors and the fuel pump. Also check the fuel lines to make sure they arent pinched or crimped.
