Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer
I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer S10 4.3lt. When I first crank water comes out my tail pipe.I can press the gas and it will move but it will start jerking and slowing down and if i press the gas to the floor it won't go any faster then 20mph within mins it will be still running but no speed and I wouold have to let it coast. It also runs hot in mins I can go less then 1/4 of a mile and my check gages lights is on. I put coolent in every 3-4 days and i have had my oil checked and its not leaking into my oil and nothing is leaking out on the ground. Today when I raised the hood i could hear a sizzling sound coming from the intake??? IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS PLEASE CONTACT ME AT LOVELYLAVON88@YAHOO.COM
Hi, you may have a plugged up converter. When a converter plugs up, the exhaust has no where to go but stay in the engine. This will cause the engine to get hot in a short period of time. Do a pressure test on your cooling system. If it holds pressure, this would be a good thing, if not, this means the water is going somewhere. It still could be a sign of a leaking head or intake gasket. I'm willing to bet you may have a leaking intake gasket and your water is entering the head and going out the exhaust causing your tailpipe issue and the water has loosened the carbon in the exhaust system plugging the converter. The engine will loose all kinds of power with a plugged exhaust. If that checks out, check out you MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. This tells the computer how much air is entering the engine in which the computer tells the injectors how much fuel to give the engine.
