    I could hear the old pump working, but changed it to a new pump, which you can hear - only one pump in this vehicle. Relay pump is working.
    Fuel Pump - was dripping with old pump, now drips a little more with new one, not spurting like it should
    Distributor - put in new one, included ignition module, and did confirm even that the old module was is still working
    Timing is fine, clogged injectors would still dribble a little fuel at least

    It was the strainer on the fuel pump.

    I mean on the fuel filter.

    You need to solve the fuel problem first. check for a fuel filter some were along the fuel line and replace it it sounds like it's clogged.

    Sounds more like the fuel pump. When you turn the key on ( but not all the way to start ) can you hear the the pump run, it's a low hum that will last for a second or two. If your not sure turn the key off/on a few times. If you hear it try to change the fuel filter. If you do not hear it check your fuses(fuel pump).

Sounds like there is a fuel flow problem. The fuel filter could be cloged. Also, if the fuel pump is electric there is usually another pump in the gas tank and will burn out the exterior pump if defective. Could also be a fuse if electric. Just ideas.

I jumped started someones car and now my car wont start


It is most likely having to do with your charging system. The car battery might have been weakened by jumping your aunts car. If your battery is fine and your battery connectors aren't corroded (have gunk all over them) then i would check your alternator. P.S. the 2001 chevy blazer is fuel injected, I would stop pouring fuel into where ever you are pouring it. lol.

Have the crank shaft sensor check out. This is a beginning of the problem. After that it will never be able to start since the ECM doesn't know what the position of the piston reported through the crankshaft sensor to turn on the proper ignition. Good luck.

I have an 88 ford broncco 2 eddie bower edition and i have replaved both fuel pumps and it still wont start unless you pour gas into the carborator then when the gas in the carborator runs out it dies


you may have a gold coloured filter that screws into your carb. Unscrew it and check to see if you can blow through it. It may be clogged. Also you can check for fuel at carb by loosening the fuel line going into the carb. Crank engine after loose. Should have gas coming from it.

I would pull the plugs and let the gas into the cylinders to dry out , you may have a hydrolock engine after putting so much gas into it , recheck the firing order to be sure is OK ususlly when you see a carb backfiring and smoking the firing order is not right
