Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Why was the intake gasket replaced? Just curious. Since the intake was removed and many engine managment components were either dis-connected or removed, a good place to start is check and recheck all the connections and to be sure no connectors were left off or loose. I am assuming the engine ran good for the most part, before the intake removal, and the engine never died suddenly before the intake removal. Is the fuel pump at least operating to prime the fuel system when the ignition key is turned to the on position???

When u Say it "won't turn over at all" do u mean the starter doesn't spin the engine over? also have u done the most basic tests here, fuel pressure and OBD 2 electronic engine control fault code tests, this engine has electronic fuel control and ignition control it is done through the computer (known as the "PCM"), in most cases when you have a stall and the starter does turn the engine then there should be a fault code in the memory of the PCM. so do the tests and get back to me.

There are several possibilities and I am guessing you mean the motor acts locked up, not that the ignition is dead.
If your intake manifold included water jackets to the ports its possible that the intake gaskets failed and the antifreeze went into the combustion chamber upon acceleration. After 5 miles the thermostat would have opened for the first time and the radiator would have been pressurized for the first time with the new gaskets. Now you have HYDROlock. You can remove a few sparkplugs and see what they look like. If they are wet, then that is what happened. You can drain the radiator and pull the sparkplugs and the engine will push the water through the sparkplug holes while it cranks.
Then you need to remove and install new intake gaskets. If this is not the case, and the plugs are good it is another cause. You may have a wire burnt, a fuse blown, due to a wire which grounded after the engine was running. Sometimes you can leave a deposit on tools at Autozone or Oreillys and borrow a scanner. Using a scanner on your diagnostic plug should pinpoint the problem. Check your owners manual for fuses to the ignition and ECU. Would be interested in knowing the outcome of this case.
