Question about 1993 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

2 Answers

My 1993 S10 Blazer keeps quitting while driving it. You can pull over and start it right back up again and it will run fine. Then after a while it will quit again. Sometimes in the morning it will start fine and keep idling. Other times i have to keep giving it the gas to keep it running til it warms up. My main concern is quitting while driving it since the power brakes and sterring both go when it shuts off!

SOURCE: I have a chevy blazer 94 S10 still quit on the road.

How is it running before it quits onyou. This could be the culprit of an egr valve. How many miles on thevehicle. The egr seems to die on a certain mileage pattern. Also youcould start by cleaning the egr valve before replacing it. This couldvery well help the situation, but this is just a guess. Hope thishelps!!

93 Chev S-10.2.8l.v6.2w.gas.100,800 mils. excellent condition on May 25,2014 one block from home. In the process of turning around truck stopped and would not start. engine locked up. no warning no...

Unfortunately this seems to be a not unheard of problem with the 2.8. I'm NOT saying however, they are all a "ticking time bomb" ready to blow up.

Approx. 20 years ago my wife was driving our 1985 S10 Blazer and it simply quit. No warning, nothing.( I might add she was very good at keeping an eye on the gauges and she said everything was fine and it just quit running.)

I went to the rescue with a set off jumper cables and a tow strap. Tried jump starting and "no go". Tried to turn the engine over by hand and it was obviously stuck (siezed), so we pulled it home.

I bought a whole vehicle (1983 Camaro) with a rebuilt 2.8 V6 and swapped the engine into the Blazer and drove it for another 15 years with no problems.

I also had a 1989 S10 with the 2.8 V6 with well over 100,000 miles and a 1993 S10 with over 200,000 miles and they both ran fine the entire time I owned them.

I talked to a couple of mechanics about this and they both said the 2.8 will, WITHOUT warning, simply seize up. No ticking, no rattling, just seize.

So I guess the options are to either have the engine rebuilt, buy a rebuilt engine, find another used engine, or sell/scrap your truck.

When I bought the Camaro for the engine the body was kinda crusty. I bought the whole car for $500, sold the wheels for $100, and the rest of the car for $100. So I had $300 into a replacement engine. i did the engine swap myself so no labor charge.

Hope this helps.

My 1993 blazer was running fine today, all of a sudden it quit running, it appears that the fuel is getting shut off, I sprayed some ether in the intake, it starts right up , some times it stays running...

this sounds like a bad fuel tank fuse or that the over heating saftey switch is bad it is best to find a plce that will look it over and then tell you what it is and then if you canfix it on your own or buy the parts and then they fix it keep safe

1993 s10 4.3 starts fine, while idling it dies. sometimes i have a hard time restarting. the blazer died a couple of times while driving.fuel pump is good, tuned up, remanuf. injectors 1 yr ago,engine lite...

only half way there if you have a tbi check the crank sensor/ cam sensor that is the first line of business on that truck if the crankshaft sensor fails the truck stops dead when you wait a few minutes the sensor re energizes and the truck will work again for a bit antiknock can cause similer problems but not while the truck is running
