It's most likely the spring cap on the lock plug that keeps the lock wafers and springs in place. That's what allows the lock to work properly. (It's much more common for the cap to spring in the locked position, making it impossible to turn to the On position.) When the cap springs while the vehicle is running, your only real option is to get to a dealer or locksmith who knows how to remove the steering wheel, disassemble the steering column down to the lock cylinder and remove/replace it without making a royal and EXPENSIVE mess out of the deal. Don't try to stop the engine; you won't be able to restart it, then you will need to tow the vehicle as well - adding another Benjamin to the bill!Replacement lock cylinders are readily available and only cost about $25 if that much plus the labor to remove/replace it, about 30 minutes.

Check the engine thermostat. Its probably stuck open.

It's toast, replace it. Or have flying chunks of metal stuck in your ass.

yes, 82-93 are the same besides grill design

the 1996 and 1997 are the same and would not work in your 2000 straight from GM

If you have a 4.3L engine in that 93 Blazer, stand in front with the hood open, looking at the distributor #1 would be at the 5 o'clock position. From that point clockwise it would be 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.

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.

Electrical, they're notorious for it.

we are trying to find regular factory wheels that fit the lug pattern off of a 1997 Chevy blazer s-10 2 wheel drive

engine misfire. i have a '96 Chevy blazer but i don't have that problem, i was reading reviews on the car and found out that some of them do that.

I would like to know if my 2002 chevy blazer with a stock 4.3 vortec pull 2000 lbs ?

The 4.3L would have 12 hydraulic lifters.

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

Originally it would have had DexCool.

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.

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.

Standing in front of the vehicle with the hood open, looking at the distributor, number 1 on the distributor cap would be at the 6 O'Clock position.

With a manual transmission, manual transfer case, or four button electronic transfer case (which has a neutral position), yes. Otherwise, you would have to disconnect the driveshafts.

It would all depend on the condition of the vehicle as with all vehicles

What year the vehicle is would be helpful and what engine you have.

An 03 would have them all around.

Assuming that it has a 4.3L engine, it would be the distributor.
