Chevy Blazer no gas will not start. Changed filter, gas gage lies about level. Goes to zero when starting. Full tank.


Possible bad fuel pump. Have someone crank the engine while rapidly hitting the bottom of the fuel tank with your fist agressively. You can also use a hammer and hit the tank using the flat of the hammer head while the engine is being cranked. If it starts or tries to start, suspect a bad fuel pump

I hav a 94 chevy k1500 but it wont stay running. One morning i started it up, got it warm then while i was goin down the road it acted like it was running out of gas,would die then start back up then just...


Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

Acting like it is out of gas


Sounds like a bad fuel pump, that's exactly how they act when they die.

It's usualy inside the gas tank so it's a dealership type of repair, you got to pull the tank, and sinc you filled it, it's eithe got to be drained, or use a transmission lift to get it out, NOT a home job unless you've done it before and own a hydraulic lift
