    Assuming your not out of fuel,in my own experience I have found that the distributor cap tends to go bad a lot on the 4.3 with the flat cap especially if any kind of moisture is present you might have spark but not enough its about 25$ for cap at autozone

Blazer has no fuel pressure but pump kicks on


In the past I have seen fuel pumps that would run on the bench but wouldn't work in the gas tank. Sometimes you can bang on the gas tank and get the pump to start working, the problem is usually bad brushes. In the past I have cut open an electric fuel pump, those little brushes were wore down to the nub.
If you have good voltage and ground at the fuel pump and no pump action, suspect the fuel pump. Fuel filter is good, I didn't look to see if inline fuel filter? Fuel lines aren't clogged? Don't disconnect any fuel lines unless your sure, no fuel pressure.

I have a 96 S-10 Blazer, Does not want to start


Replace the fuel filter to help the fuel pump, but it sounds like the fuel pump check valve has gone bad and your losing your fuel pressure to start the engine. Your going to have to keep priming the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the run position for 5 seconds 3 times before you try to start the engine. The only fix for this is to replace the fuel pump, and that is costly. Good luck and take note: the fuel pump has a life time of around 150,000 miles and anything past that is borrowed time.

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.

My 1996 blazer wont start


Time to replace the fuel filter. It's not a hard job actually. And it's a VERY common thing to go wrong. I'd change the fuel filter and then run some fuel treatment through the tank afterwards. Believe it or not, I've noticed that a nice bottle of fuel treatment really conditions a fuel filter well.

Hope this helps you out.
