A typical engine needs mostly just gas and spark to run (besides air of course)
Sounds like the engine is not getting one or the other.

Fuel goes from fuel pump, to filter, to fuel pressure regulator, to fuel rail, to injectors.
You can test for fuel pressure with key on, at the fuel rail. There will be a test port on the rail that you can put a rag on top and push in the valve to see if there is pressure. (or use pressure tester)
If there is no pressure, check that fuel pump relay is working. (you can use an ohmmeter on relay to see if there is resistance). You can also test power to relay and to the pump with a voltmeter to see if pump is getting power. Or turn key to ON position and listen to see if you hear the pump turn on.

If you have no spark to any cylcinders, the crank shaft position sensor may be faulty which is very common in GM vehicles.

You can use an ohmmeter to test the sensor itself.
You can also get a spark plug tester to see if there is spark to each cylinder.
You can also remove one spark plug, plug back into plug wire, lay on top of engine so spark plug diode is 1/4" away from metal surface. Have someone else turn engine over while you look for spark. Do this to each cylinder.

SOURCE: 2001 blazer will crank fine but wont start unless

AllData says the fuel pressure should be 60 to 66 psi. Did you ever fix it? What was it? My Blazer is doing the same thing except I noticed that under heavy acceleration my blazer seems to sorta stall like its starving for more fuel. My fuel pressure is 45 to 55psi. I dead headed my pump into the pressure guage and it skyrockets. I changed out the spider injector (used) assembly that also contains my fuel pressure regulator. My symptoms have not changed. I am rechecking my fuel pressure today.

How about the fuel pump...are you getting the fuel to the cylinders? Is the fuel making it through the fuel line through the fuel filter? Drop a few drops in 1 cylinder, if it fires, you have a fuel problem. Does it turn over? If not check out the motor starter!

96 chevy blazer won't start


When you say it doesn't start...Does it crank over? Does it need a jump??

Assuming that it cranks, but doesn't start...

If it's a moisture problem there could be a problem with the distributor cap. If there's a crack in it, or it it just isn't sealed well enough. It'll crank-n-crank-n... Until it's warm for a day or so. I just went through the procedure on how to replace it for the novice, same vehicle. Take a look at that. In the interim there's a spray "wire dryer" that might help, or he could spray some WD-40 on the cap.

Another way to check is to wait until it gets dark and get a helper. One person cranks the engine, the other looks at the cap and wires. If there's any sparks from the wires, or a crack in the cap, it's a lot easier to see.

Will not start 96 blazer


Go back to basics. Check if you have spark. From the coil and the plugs. Check if you have fuel pressure, check if you have compression on all cylinders. If you have all three action should happen.
