Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
My 96 Chevy Blazer (172 000 miles) has been stalling for two summers during the hottest days (above 90) and generally after driving 10 miles in the late afternoon (returning home from work). Furthermore it usually(but not always) stalls after slowing down and making a right hand turn and feeding gas to go up a slight grade in my subdivision. It never stalls in the morning.
I had a similar problem on my 95 jimmy. It was something that took a lot of time and money to diagnose, but now 3 years later...no proplems. Emissions requires the truck to have an EGR valve (exhaust gas recycle) and this deposits gunk (carbon residue) on your MAF (mass air flow sensor) If you catch it in time you can use a carbon cleaner from Autozone or checker Lightly on the MassAirFlow sensor. If not in time you may have to have either the MAF or EGR valve replaced and these are expensive. After a long period of time being undetected eventually the EGR valve will start smelling like sulfer, this means its to late to clean and save!
Hope this helps
