#1170 of 3676 1995 Chevy Blazer-Blinking Service Engine Soon Light
Apr 18, 2005 (7:08 am)
I have a 95 Chevy Blazer LT. There are 120k miles on it. I have had problems but nothing that has caused my Service engine Soon light to come on and blink. Is it possible that my catalytic converter could be causing this? Or an O2 sensor? Also I had my water pumped recently changed but I am still leaking anitfreeze. I have also noticed I am leaking oil too, had my oil changed and everything but I can still see the puddle in my garage. Any suggestions before I spend thousands to get everything fixed?

#1172 of 3676 Blazer is dieing
Apr 18, 2005 (11:42 am)
First off, let me say that my Blazer starts smoothly. No problems whatsoever.
I have a '90 S10 Blazer. What usually happens is that I start it, but as soon as I pop it into gear (any gear), it dies instantly the second I take my foot off the gas. At first, I started to believe that the fuel pump was dead, and wasn't pushing the gas through, but it starts fine, so that confuses me. My next thought was that there was an issue with the transmission, as it will, occasionally, pop out of gear.
I would also like to mention that while I am not really that mechanically inclined, I learn quickly, and am able to think through most situations (ie, in rescent months, I've taught myself how to change fuel pumps, throttle cables, etc. etc.)
Anyone have any thoughts that could help point me in the right direction?

First of all is your truck a 4X4 , if so check the front drive shaft. When in 2 wheel drive is the drive shaft turning ?? If answer to all is YES , then I have the solution. Had this trouble with gas milage on a 98 s-10 blazer 4X4. It took $34 and some time on my part but once repaired ...... gas milage increased , I was getting about 160-180 MPG but now it is WELL over 240 !!!!!!

I have a 95 blazer with the same problem. I changed the spider inj and EGR along with the map sensor. It helped. It started up 3 days after the work was done. He told me to take it on the highway and floor it. There might be some carbon still it the EGR port. I did that and so far so good. Let me know how you made out. Vinny

On the throttle body, look for a valve on the side. Plastic with two small screws visible facing out. Remove valve, check for white powder inside threads of aluminum throttle body.
Clean... w\air-intake cleaner. Install... don't use any thread sealer on installation!!
if you really have to use sealant cause a thread is damaged? use pipe dope only...
Idle control valve is the name of the part if the plastic is cracked.
which is easy to crack if you tighten the srews too much... so be careful
But... bad vacuum will cause shifting problems with your 4x4 and transmission.
may want to find your vacuum solenoid under battery tray to be sure you havn't any leaks. take your time with it. Once it took me and two other mechanics 3 days to find a vacuum leak... can be tricky. Best way to find out is remove line a physically blow on the line. Tis way u can tell if the pressure drops without expensive tools and it does work.
hope this information has been useful
p.s. you must be mechanically inclined if you can change throttle cables...
maybe you should change your career and be a mechanic? been working great for me...

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer and am having a problem similar to yours with the flasher staying on once i turn. After the turn the blinkers stop but the switch in the glove box keeps ticking. I picked up new relay for that and put in but did not fix. Still ticking after the turn - what did it take to correct yours ? And how much money did it cost you ?
Chevy is telling me to replace the switch in the steering column now costing about 500.00 with labor - any ideas ? Sharon
