#3507 of 3674 1995 Chevy Blazers Bogs out when trying to accerate
May 15, 2010 (2:02 pm)
I have a 1995 Blazers when I give it gas to go its fine until I have to increase speed. Its fine to just role away but trying to get on the high way or when I need it to get up and go it bogs out. Any ideas to what it could be please let me know. I've change spark plugs, wires, MAF, Fuel pump, full lines, expected on the engine that is the only fuel line I haven't checked.

I had a 96 Jimmy with the same problem. It ended up being a corroded 02 Sensor connector. I was able to clean out the harness connector and replaced the 02 Sensor. The computer never came up with a trouble code.

is there anyway for a simple person like me to erase the computer codes.....96 jimmy 4.3
cap and rotor was bad....replaced but figure they may have caused computer to alter fuel etc etc etc ?????

I have a 95 Chevrolet Blazer that had a similar situation. It was the EGR valve. Its located in the front of the engine. If it gets plugged, it will seriously bog the engine down. Most EGR valves don't go bad, just get build up. So what you can do is take it off, use WD-40 and spray in the valve. Clean the valve with a toothbrush. What you are cleaning is corrosion build up. I now check it once a year, and its keeping my Blazer run very efficient. Its a very easy fix. Be sure to buy a new gasket, which will only cost at most a dollar.

I have the same problem in my 95 Jimmy. Tried everything you have and also have changed and cleaned out my EGR Valve. I finnally took it to a dealer and they couldn't figure it out. If you do please inform me if you do something different.

Have you changed your PCV valve? Could be stuck. What I have noticed about the 95 is all the sensors. Just one of them can screw it all up. Really quick question on your EGR Valve. What did you use to clean it? If it doesn't get cleaned fully, it will only open partial. I had it happen so then I spent some good time cleaning the gunk out and making sure the Valve had 100% opening. But, EGR Valves can fail too. Not common, but we own the 95 blazer........S&?t Happens

My jimmy has been running fine untill recently. I think that there maybe something wrong with my alternator but I am unsure. When I am starting my jimmy it does not want to start and most of the dashboard lights do not want to come on. I try to start it again and it will hesitate starting, then it will start. The lights on the dashboard will then all come on and the gauges will start working after the dinging noise stops. I am also having issues with the four wheel drive system. It also was working untill recently. I try to engage the four wheel drive but it will not come on. Is this due to the alternator?

Well I would take your truck in and have the battery and/or alternator checked. Most of the time its free at any battery facility. They could let you know within minutes if anyone of those are bad. For your 4 wheel drive, its hard to say. I would try to start with the first problem. With your 4 wheel drive being an all electrical engagement, begin with the simple first.

I need some help figuring out how to fix a few problems with my Blazer> It's a 2000 LS 4x4 4.3.
1) first problem is that the washer fluid stopped spraying on the front, it does work on the rear. You can't hear anything when you try it for the front.
2) second problem is either the bushings or the pin in the top hinge of the driver's door is wore out because it sags and tries to hang up on the striker plate. How is this replaced?
3) andlastly how do you replace the hood latch cable? Mine is so bad that you about have to force the hood to open it.
Thanks for your help in advance,
