Check the output on the alternator.. your battery might be just about dead.. Alternator should put out 14.5 v or more with the engine running, The battery with the engine stopped should read 12V or better.. with the engine running the battery should read almost as much as the alternator output.

Sounds like you might have a weak fuel pump.You need to check your fuel pressure you didn't say which engine it has but if its a 5.7 you need 9-13 psi with the engine running.If its not within the specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

Problems with my 94 k1500 / changed idle control valv / map sensor / throttle control sensor /plugs,wires,cap,rotor ,and fuel filter / these are all the things i have bought but nothing i have done will...


it might be the ECU, when cold the computer raises the iddle to warm it up, when reaches temp., it dropes it down to normal iddle, but it might not know where the correct iddle is, it might be another sensor like a cam, map, throttle position senssor.

Check the IACV, its located at the throttle body, facing the firewall. They get junked up with carbon. Just clean it up with carb cleaner and bleed out the air from the coolant.

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason


i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
