We replaced the engine because who we bought it from, she blew the head gasket. The power seats were working just fine before my son replaced the engine. Now when you move the switch, you get nothing. I noticed the auto lock on the drivers side doesn't lock any of the other 3 doors but they all work fine. You have to manually lock the drivers door. However, the passenger seat doesn't move either. Don't know if these are all related. What would changing the engine have to do with the power seats. Just curious.

Re: 2000 Blazer power seats
I dont thing there is something to do with the power seats when you blew an engine, plus the power locks too.
im thingking, when you put the engine, a lot of wires and fuse boxes are in the engine compartment, you could probably disconnect some wire that are on the way on changing the engine and forgot to put the wires back together.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Overheating could be due to a restriction in a cooling passage, a problem with the water pump, or a blown head gasket.
If you get way too much pressure in the cooling system, even before the engine is warm, try a cylinder compression test. It's probably a warped head or blown gasket (or both).
If the compression test seems fine, you should reverse flush the system to try dislodge any restrictions.
No. The cylinder heads and intake are different. If you have a 95 and are using a 2000 as a replacement, you will have to change the intake assembly along with the cylinder heads. The transmission from the 95 will have to be modified at the bell housing cover. The oil pan will be different but will still work from the 2000. You will need gaskets for the 95 year if you swap over the heads and intake. Once the heads and intake are swapped, the wiring will be the same
sounds like the head-gasket blew, and the fuel pump may have gone out. I would really have to be there to know for sure. I guess you need to see if you have spark, and if fuel is coming to the engine, may have had a fuse or two go out, also. Good Luck Tim
A blown head gasket. This is common if you ever let the engine overheat. Aluminum heads will warp if allowed to overheat even for a few minutes. If you check the coolant there may also be oil in the coolant. Remove your spark plugs and see if they are all the same color on the tip of the plugs that are inside the engine. Usually one or two of the plugs will foul with oil or coolant and not fire like the other plugs. You could also have a cracked head or engine block. It is a complex job for the home mechanic to remove and replace the head gaskets. If you do, take the heads to a shop that will test for cracks and rebuild the head before you replace the head gaskets and intake and exhaust gaskets. This is a complex job for the average home mechanic.
Check for possible water in oil, also remove radiator cap and start engine does water want to pump out of radiator, is there white smoke coming out of tail pipe, if yes to any of those blown head gasket, if not sure yet remove spark plugs crank engine over is there any coolant coming out of spark plug holes, if yes blown head gasket, and last have a block test any repair shop can do this.Good luck
I seriously doubt that your problem is a lifter. I would have a cylinder leakdown test done to check if you have a warped valve or seat (or a crack somewhere you may have missed). You could have checked this with the head removed, by filling chamber with solvent and seeing if anything leaked past the valves. I would also check valve spring pressures...exhaust springs get hotter than intakes do and in an overheat, a weak spring can relax a bit and not hold the valve on the seat properly.
Sounds like the engine overheated, and blew the head gasket. With the modern aluminum blocks & heads, loss of cooling power spells death for the engine....all in less than 10 minutes. (*Had it happen to a 1991 Pontiac Grand Am, with a newly rebuilt engine, less that 2000 miles on it.*)
