#584 of 3676 Chevrolet Customer Service/Blazer Spare Tire
Sep 27, 2002 (6:29 am)
Hi, I have ordered a 4WD/4Door/LS with almost everything on it, List of $29,198.00. My problem is that the full size spare that is shown as an option on the GMBUYPOWER site as well as the 2003 Blazer brochure. I do not want the full spare, but Chevy dealer says I have to have it per Chevy Corp. Called Chevrolet customer service, they said it was an option. They were worthless on really answering the question, refused to send me a Email saying it was an option, so I could go to the dealer with it. I Will be back home next Thursday and I am Going to cancel my order and buy A Ford Explorer. My reason is that if Chevy customer service has such a lack of concern on this, what would they be like if I had a major problem. GM/Chevrolet just don't care about the customer!!!!!
#585 of 3676 2001 Blazer Vibrations
Sep 27, 2002 (7:27 pm)
I have a 2001 Blazer 2WD, 40,000 miles. At medium speeds there is a vibration that seems to be originating at the front wheels. It is speed dependent and is maximum at about 50 MPH. I thought it might be a bad tire so I've tried replacing each front tire with the spare. No difference. The owners' manual doesn't call out repacking the front wheel bearings at 30,000 miles with 4-wheel disk brake models as it did on past front disk brake models that I've owned. So I haven't repacked them. I started wondering if I have a bad bearing. Any suggestions?

Good decision vjo. I had problems with my new Tahoe. The dealer was unwilling to repair the problems. I called customer service many times, E-mailed them repeatedly, etc. GM customer service's response... go to the dealer. When told I was unhappy with the dealer, their response....go to the dealer. If you are not related to the owner of the dealership don't buy GM.
#587 of 3676 1996 Chevy Blazer Hard Starting
Oct 07, 2002 (11:32 am)
I found out why the Blazer wouldn't start from a very Poor Mechanic .
After they put my Blazer up on the Diagnostic check , decided to fix by process of elimination!
Very Costly and not efficient at all! They replaced all the wires, plugs, rotor cap, and distriburator. Before even acknowledging me the owner suggestions that it was fuel related. I had told them I had smelled gas in the engine, after trying to start vehicle...Once it started it smelled of gasoline...
They narrowed it all down to The Fuel Regulator .
The price for all the wires etc...was 561.00 w/labor and parts..Only to find out the real problem: Fuel Regulator. This part costs 70.00 and labor 261.00....
I am really going to see if I can replace this part myself...
I first brought into shop and they replaced fuel filter and air filter and decided to change my rear shocks for 400.00 total...
So after all that work and money they still didnt repair the main problem, fuel regulator.
Just for your information: Jasper parts are totally under warranty. Just keep the parts that were replaced and call and have them sent back to Jasper for Full Refund...This company backs there parts!
I wish Mechanics were more trustworthy!
#588 of 3676 FULLSIZE SPARE
Oct 09, 2002 (7:29 am)
You can get a donut?
I thought all their trucks/suvs had a fullsize spare. It wasnt an option on my truck or my dads.
I have to ask why would you want only a donut or no spare tire?
Shoot i even bought a 3 ton jack and carry that around with me just in case
#589 of 3676 Full Size Spare

Ryanbab, because I am a 102 lb LADY, not an OX!!!!!
Oct 09, 2002 (11:51 am)
how much is the option?
Do you still get a donut or no tire at all?
Also a fullsize spare is a much better idea to have. What if you are far from home (vacation or something) you get a flat. A fullsize spare wont leave you stranded. With a donut you are only supposed to travel a short distance until you are able to get the fullsize fixed

...because I am a 102 lb LADY, not an OX!!!!!
Actually, we already presumed that. Oxen cannot legally drive a motor vehicle on public roads. Their inability to pass the written test along with their stubbon refusal to wear corrective lenses for short sightedness preclude them from obtaining a driver's license. Also, their typing skills are virtually nonexistent!

#592 of 3676 Service Engine Light
Oct 13, 2002 (6:04 pm)
I have taken my 98 Blazer LS to three different places to find out why the service engine light is always on. After some unnecessary parts being replaced, the problem still remains - No one seems to know for sure. I think there may be an electrical issue. Anyone had the same problem?
#593 of 3676 Hard Starting 99' Blazer LS
Oct 14, 2002 (3:40 pm)
I just bought a 99' Blazer LS with 34K on it. It seemed to start somewhat hard since the purchase, however recently it has been starting very hard.
Sometimes it will start strong with no issues and other times it turns over very hard. On the occasions when it starts hard, the radio resets to 1:00. I tend to think it is some type of electrical/ignition issue. Does anyone have any thoughts??
