Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

2000 chevy blazer stalled and won't start back up

Replaced the fuel pump a month ago..running fine. The other day I slowly accelerated out of a drive thru and it just stalled. Will not start back up for nothing! It will crank over and over, but will not catch. Fuel pump engages or comes on, spark plugs changed and have spark, fuel filter changed, has fuel pressure (witnessed line being bled), battery charged fine, already tried to "reset" the security system, disconnected battery (just to see if doing that would even do anything). Hooking a computer up to it was pointless because it did not give off any codes. Could this be something with injectors? One book said something about checking an oil pressure switch to see if it was getting enough pressure and if it wasn't, it would shut down the truck's fuel or something like that?? Doesn't make any sense and it's frustrating b/c it could be so many different things. We're stumped over here and really refuse to pay a ridiculous amount of money to a dealer, especially if we can do it ourselves. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Having the same problem. 2000 Blazer 4D 120K miles. Started hesitating initially, when engine was cold. Then hesistation persisted for first few minutes while driving. Then it would start sometimes and not others. Usually could get it started after pumping the pedal. Now won't start most of the time, but randomly does.

    Have replaced fuel pump 2X, fuel pressure regulator, spark is okay, replaced cam-shaft position sensor, fuel pressure is okay, changed cap, rotor, plugs. Dealer is at a loss, they fixed a wire, didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions?

Ours had same problem, turned out to be combo issue of magnet in security system, and leaking SPIDERS (fuel injectors) causing low fuel pressure. have these checked before diving into fuel pump etc, we spent nearly $2000 getting figured. If your computer wont read at a shop, thats your first clue on the security issue. If your fuel pump is heard and pumping just below recommended, then have the spiders checked for leaks. Good luck

I would say the car is not getting any fuel. you could try replacing the fuel filter which is cheap. It could also be the fuel pump which is probably in the tank.(try tapping the gas tank with a hammer lightly) If the car starts then it is probably the pump. The last thing i think it could be is that is isn't getting any spark. Take the spark plug wire off the plug itself and put a screwdriver in the hole and make sure it is touching the metal part of the plug. Have someone try to start the car and hold the screwdriver near a piece of metal, if you see a blue spark then the car is getting spark, if you see nothing then you probably have a bad coil.

I have a chevy s10 2.2 2003 truck and one day it ran about five miles. then stalled. it started back up idled fine but put it in gear. stalled again. had to get towed home replaced the fuel filter,truck...

When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

89 chevy 1500 6.2 diesel surging stalling then no fuel getting to motor

Try blowing out your Airlines with a air compressor just disconnected the linesshit from the fuel pump and from the injection port and just blow it out start with low pressure and slowly work your way up. If that doesn't help you most likely have a leaky injector

97 chevy blazer w/ 4.3 won't start unless i pour full directly into it....what is causing this. was driving and it just stalled ...fires but won't turn over completely

if you can put fuel in throttle body and it runs. then it is not getting any fuel. check your fuel pump fuse and the relay, if ok, then you may have a bad fuel pump or a plugged up fuel filter. check filter and fuses first. good-day !!

It likely needs a fuel pump, hook up a fuel pressure gauge, it needs to be 11-13 psi
