Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

I own a chevy blazer LT 1996 and my conflict with driving this vehicle is that the motor will not remain in idle, and will shut down. It cranks over and back fires through the throttle body, but does not start. I must let you know that, this all began after i power washed the engine and drive train. Any suggestions on why this malfunction is occurring? My cell phone number for any further contact is 267-226-6034. Thank You.

I would bet you have water in the distributor cap. I would start by removing the cap and seeing if there is moisture in it and drying it out if there is. The cap is on the backside of the motor near the firewall.

What causes a 1995 chevy blazer 4x4 4.3 die when u come to a dead stop ?


Try doing the following.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Have someone sit inside and turn key on, the fuel pump in the fuel tank should make a humming noise for a few seconds then shut off (primes the fuel system) until you start cranking.
