Question about Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

99 blazer has been hard to start for awhile but will start after a few tries now wont start at all. It will turn over but sounds like it is not getting enough gas. The fuel pump is only a yr old and you can hear it clicking on and it is getting gas up to where you check the fuel pressure. it has had a recent tune up and a cold start sensor. Our neighbor use to be a mechanic and has a code machine, He said it isnt throwing any codes and that it may need a computer. I am not sure this is correct. Any ideas?

Check the fuel pressure, these vortec motors need 60 psi of fuel pressure to start. Anything less than 50 and the poppet valves won't open. If fuel pressure is sufficient, check the coil wire

99 blazer hard to start and feels like it shudders and misses help

Could be a fuel pump problem where the check valve in the pump is letting fuel pressure drain back into the tank.
I would check base fuel pressure before and after cranking the engine.

Truck wont turn over hear a clicking sound

Assuming your battery is fully charged it sounds like a starter.

The click you are hearing is the solenoid switch on the starter (basically a relay). Turn the key on and off a few times while someone give the starter a good few wackes with a piece of wood or other hard object. When it starts to crank over hold the key in the start position until it starts....then drive to the parts store and buy a new starter.

I would make sure the spark plugs are in good shape and also replace the fuel filter every 35000 miles.

99 blazer wont start. there is combustion, fuel, fuel pressure is 50-60. try to change the all the ignition system and nothing happen just the same result. nothing wrong with the heads and the gasket....

Well sounds like you have the three things an engine needs to work, compression, igintion, fuel! So If you really have those three then it would be a timing issue. Or you are not getting fuel to the cyliners. Like the injectors are plugged maybe
What are your compression numbers?
Also does it try and start at all or just cranks and cranks?
Try and spray a little carb cleaner in the trottle body and see if it trys to run for a few seconds, it if does then that means the injectors are not getting fuel to the engine!
