Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

My 96 blazer dies sometimes while at idle it will start back up, but you never know when it will happen. When going at hwy speeds it will lose power, and the lights on the dash come on like it is going to die, but it will power through. This lasts for about 5 sec and then runs normal agian. This seems to happen 3 to 4 times over about a 2 min time frame, but may not happen for months at a time. Time of year and weather conditions don't seem to matter.

    Hi, one of your sensors is acting up, but it's hard to say which one without more data. I recommend you have the truck scanned using the history mode of the scanner to see if it has stored any trouble codes during one of the episodes. If it has, please send us the code.

Check the wiring connector on the coil. It may be loose. This really does sound like an issue in the ignition electricals similar to an issue I had with my 95 S-10. The coil itself had loosened as well as he wiring to it.

SOURCE: 2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick

SOURCE: Falls on Its face 3-5 min of driving

Possibly the fuel filter is slowly plugging up while driving to the point of starving the engine, and when engine stops pressure slowly backfeeds the filter to slightly unplug ..enough to start and run for another couple of minutes.. also check EGR valve for sticking open sometimes a piece of carbon will hold the pintle open causing it to stall..also I know you checked fuel pressure but monitor it to see if it drops off after going down the road...I have seen this where fuel pump gives pressure but not enough after a while, this was caused by a torn pulsator which is the rubber connector between the pump and the fuel line inside the fuel tank...Good luck

I have a 96 ford explorer, will start and idle fine , sometimes it will accelerate fine then I will loose RPM/speed and have to pull off road sputter out til it dies. press gas to raise rpm nothing


Try the fuel filter. If that is not a problem then the other thing I would suggest is to check the fuel pump. If the pressure is being lost in the fuel pump then your car will lose it's acceleration.

Starts, idle is good, but lose's power and then die's


The reason seems to be vacuum leak. Try replacing the vacuum hose. Vacuum in engine is used to pump the fuel in engine cylinder and to keep the ride in proper working condition. Vacuum leak can be one of the symptoms responsible for vacuum leak.

96 blazer will start and only idle once on gas it


Could be several things but here are the known culprits:

  1. Clogged or worn Fuel Filter
  2. Clogged fuel line or injector(s) or throttle body.
  3. Worn or dying fuel pump.
  4. IAC valve may be bad and needs to be replaced.

1998 Chev Blazer - Hard Starting - Sometimes Dies When Idling


If your blazer is hard to start you can spray starting fluid in the throttle body and it is under the air horn. You remove the long screw which reveals the throttle body valve but do not press it open like a caruberator float just spray it in their. It helps if you turn the key on three times and then it should start. What does this all mean; Fuel Pump! I'm sorry but blazers are infamous for the fuel pump going out. Go to www.under100dollars.com and you can find a fuel pump for your blazer for like 70 dollars. If you get it from a auto parts store it's going to be like 200 or 300 dollars. It's not to hard to due but the fuel tank strap bolts can be difficult.
