Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Just put in a new water pump, the old was leaking some terrible. Changed the spark plugs and wires. I put in a new distributor cap, the other one was cracked, and I put a new rotor in. I added a MAS sensor because it would not start unless I poured gas in the carbureator. I had to put in a new fuel pump, and it works fine, but the vehicle, which is a 2001 Chevy Blazer, 4.3 liter engine still will not start unless you pour fuel into the carbureautor. It just appears to not be getting any gas at the carbureator. Is this bad fuel injectors or what? Once the little gas that you have poured into the carbureator runs out, the vehicle stops running. Its just not getting gas and the fuel lines are full of gas coming from the fuel pump... Anyone have any idea whats going on here, would sure appreciate it. Bill

It sounds to me that your control module is bad It is located on the left side facing the engine on top of the intake

This sounds like a fuel pressure problem and probably is the fuel pump as these run at about 35lbs pressure and will not start a car with less than 32lbs pressure could have a plugged the fuel filter.I would check the fuel pressure or check to see if you can hear the pump running.when you change the pump change the fuel filter.

1993 c1500 with 350 engine - runs rough right above idle

Ok first question. Did you install an AC Delco fuel pump? If not, change the pump. Other pumps do not maintain the pressure that is required by the system. You say you have installed a new disturber, insure you are time installed correctly. Rough running usually is a vacuum leak, usually you can find it by spraying cab. cleaner around the intake manifold and components. Hope it helps

Most parts from the parts store are made in mexico, reconditioned from old pumps that were sent back.

Replace the pump with a FACTORY part. As for your poor running engine, I would recommend replacing the spark plug wires and spark plugs. If it is equipped with a distributor; replace the cap and rotor. These parts are high-voltage related and will not work properly if they are damaged and moisture is present.

What are all of the parts needed for a tuneup for my 95 quests

Spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. If you replace all of these you would be doing what is called a major tune-up.

A regular tune-up would be just replacing the spark plugs.

You can check the integrity of the plug wires and distributor cap by spraying them with water while the engine is running. If the engine runs ruff, stall, or you see spark arcing from either the wires or the distributor cap than they will need to be replaced.

The distributor rotor always gets replaced when you replace the distributor cap.

You can also spray the coil with soapy water to see if it is leaking as well.

Your ignition circuit is faulty- it's probably the ignition switch itself that is defective. The misfire is that the distributor cap has a crack in it and the spark is directed to a particular plug wire and the spark has found its way to a non designated plug wire. It wouldn't be the coil, change the rotor and distributor cap be sure to mark your plug wires and reinsert into the proper hole in the distributor cap. Good Luck, Jim

The opti-spark distributor cap is below the water pump.
Often a leaking water pump will cause a short in the distributor
Due to the amount of time and labor cost to remove the water pump, and that fact that the water pump has to be removed to replace the distributor cap, it is a good idea to replace the distributor cap at the same time the water pump is replaced. The water pump is driven by a pinion shaft with an " O " ring. Be sure to replace the " O " ring too else you may shortly develop an oil leak at that point.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement

A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
