Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

I currently own a 99 Blazer, 6cyl 4.3L, 4 door, auto trans. My check engine light is on, and the local shops cant pinpoint the problem, except that cyl 2, 4 and 6 are randomly misfiring. I have changed just about everything: the distributor, cap, and rotors, O2 sensors, crank shaft sensor, coil, spark plugs, plemon gasket, spider fuel injector, and recently had my fuel pump evaluated. Is there something else that could be making the whole left side misfire? The misfiring is making the truck shake, even when not moving, and the truck does not idle high.

If you not running the OEM cap and rotor that's where your problem may be. The after market cap and rotor is not as heavy as the OEM and when the two screws that hold down the cap to the distributor is torqued to high,it warps the cap and that's where your problem may be. Remove the cap and inspect the inside and look for abnormal arching, you may want to replace the cap and rotor again. The other thing to is the breather screen in the distributor is known to get plugged up with dirty creating condensation which promote corrosion in the distributor there was a service bulletin from GM to service the screen when working on the distributor or during tune up's. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

    It looks like you have touched everything that needed to be replaced. You can try taking the cap back off and placing it back in there, just to make sure it's sitting in right. I used to have to replace the rotor and cap once a year when i was using a after market rotor and cap from Auto Zone. Then one day they didn't have one so i went down to the dealer across the street and picked up an OEM. The rotor and cap lasted three years with out any problems and i drive like 140 miles round trip to work almost every day. I found there are just certain things you can't ho cheap to save money. Jimmy is over 345,000 miles now and still moving strong, as long as i keep up with the maintenance. Little tip is when you lube your front end and U joints, use marine grease, it cost more but it's thicker and resist water better. Keep me posted be glad to help, = Drive a tour bus and work at a speed shop. Here is the firing order again just in case the wires got crossed. 1-6-5-4-3-2. The engine on drivers side radiator to firewall 1-3-5 
    The engine on passenger side radiator to firewal 2-4-6
    The cap on drivers side radiator to firewal 3-1-5
    The cap on passenger side radiator to firewall 2-4-6-coil

1995 blazer 4l60e trans just rebuilt. Hard 1-2

Sounds like full pressure apply from pcm. Must check for full 12v at trans connector. Also check all ground twice. That is a hard trans to install and things tend to get left loose.

Check engine light flashing 99 blazer

The only proper way to diagnose your problem is to stop by any AutoZone and have them run a FREE diagnostic scan. This will pinpoint the problem. The possibilities are are to numerous to even guess at. They range from low oil, a faulty coil to a malfunctioning mass air flow sensor.

I suggest that you have the scan performed immediately.

Service engine light

I have a 99 taurus as you mean check engine light?? If so, take the car to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan the computer for the particular fault code. It is usually free. This will tell you what is triggering the light. Or take to your mechanic and have him do the scan. Hope this helps.

99 chevy blazer the abs light stays on all the time

There are several reasons why the abs light would come on. Mostly a bad tone ring or sensor within one of the front wheel bearings is bad. To truely know what the actual reason for the light you will need to have a local repair shop or your local auto parts store scan the abs system with a scan tool equipped with abs software. An easy way to rule out a bad wheel bearing , is to raise the front wheels and check for movement in the wheel up and down.

My engine light just came on. I bought blazer last month; drives really good except for light that just came on. what could this light mean?? a tune-up?

First quick check to do is make sure your fuel cap is tight. A loose fuel cap will set an EVAP code and turn the service engine light on.
Next, do you leave the engine on while you are refueling? If so, that can also trigger and EVAP code.
If the above is true, it will take "3" cold starts for the light to clear after the problem above was fixed.

If none of the above are true, take your vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to scan your vehicle for trouble codes, write the codes down and respond back. We can go from there.
Good luck,

the best place to call is a salvage yard or visit them works best. ask to see a hollander book it will give you the interchange and what you have to change to install the engine you have.
these books are a great resource but are very expensive you might have to buy them a beer or somthing

99 jeep Transmission

is it the 4.0 litre? model and if its in the transmission you should be fine with just a transmission. if you think something is wrong with the engine best to cut open the filter and see how much metal is in there if any. you can send out oil/fluid samples to places for a price (it was $50 back when i worked for a shop) they could tell you things like if you piston ring is in your oil antifreeze pieces of valve anything pretty neat.

this should be all youd need and someone to install it
