very common problem with these are the fuel pump, when i was a machanic i was replacing at least one a week on the s-10 blazers.

AnswerHey Rudy==Have the module chacked and check the pick up coil. Rotor, cap and wires could be a good investment. GoodluckJoe AnswerMake sure you aren't out of gas Answerspray some starting fluid into the air cleaner as close to the plenum as possible..if it starts then dies... more than likely your fuel pump is bad...replace the fuel filter too

++ANSWER++ Are your dash lights on? It sounds funny, but on the 1997 Blazer there are defects. I have one and unfortunately I have had to remove the cover under the steering wheel so I can pull or move the wires on the right hand side. You will know you have it right when the key is switched on, and you have dash lights. 97 Blazer will crank and crank, but rarely start. I sat for 1 1/2 hours one day. This is a faulty ignition switch, that needs replaced. If you go to the ntha complaint site you will se there are many 1997 Blazers with this same type of problem and others... Good Luck

ANSWER!!!!

Check your fuel pressure.

1.Turn ignition on do not try to turn the engine over.

2.under the hood find the purge valve for the fuel line. (indicated by a green cap)

3. press the valve in and see if it sprays out fuel. If this occurs its not your fuel pump. If no fuel sprays, there is your problem.

My first guess would be the fuel pump is at fault.

Take the blazer to a local autozone to have the battery tested for FREE! but the blazer would not start if it sat for a couple days or so. also it would start hard, but once it started it would run fine.

It is probably in need of new spark plug wires.

Its your fuel pump very common on those cars

From what I've experienced, up to 1995, they don't have a crank sensor and 1996 and later has one. It would reason that it would be a lot of work to get a crank fitted or cut and then install a timing chain cover to accept the crank sensor. Other than this. I would think it would work. Maybe look for a kit that would do this for you. Good luck. yes but would be different wiring

Two common reasons why an engine will crank over, but not start: There is no spark. There is no gasoline.

A Chevy K5 Blazer can be purchased at many different locations including Chevy dealerships. Another option would be in sites such as eBay and Craigslist where one can find listings from individuals.

A blown fuse can make your dashboard lights to not work in your 1993 Chevy Blazer Tahoe. A burned out bulb can also cause this.

The best place to advertise a Chevy Blazer for sale would be on the auction site eBay. Or, advertise the vehicle in the local newspaper or auto trader newspaper.
