#126 of 497 '92 K-5 crank problem
Jan 27, 2008 (1:53 pm)
My blazer will start with no problems, but when I shut if off after travelling four or five miles, it will not start again. It cranks a little, but shows signs of a dead battery. If I just leave it for fifteen or twenty minutes, sometimes less, it turns over fine, like it just needed to catch its breath. It is a completely stock truck, no mods. Has classic hot exhaust by starter, no headers. Have replaced starter twice, works okay for a while, then problem returns. The battery is supposed to be good. It can be jump started, but I'd like to fix the problem. Any ideas? I've been stranded at the grocery store, dog park, and post office.

Does it have the heat shield in place? Sounds like a classic case of heat getting to the starter.

We thought of that, but didn't think would apply since the blazer doesn't have headers. We'll have to take a look underneath, thanks for the suggestion.

I hv a 2001 blazer, wouldnt start one day and then the next day starts, we replaced cap, rotor, wires, and finally replaced fuel pump even though we could hear it kick in, it just wasnt pressure of 60, more like 15, so i fixed it myself for $240 instead of deal price of $800 and thank god it has been working over a week. I changed thermostat but still heater doesnt always work.
#131 of 497 Sluggish starting
Feb 03, 2008 (1:16 pm)
I have a 2002 blazer with 135,000 miles on it that recently started to get sluggish when trying to start it. It sounds like the battery is low. This has happened a few times now but each time I get it home, the voltage at the battery when the engine is running is just over 14 volts and when not running it is 12.6 to 12.8. The connections at the battery are clean and the ground connection is good.
It will act up (a couple of times I did not think it was going to start) and then start fine for several days or weeks before acting up again. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether the engine is cold or hot.
To add information, this is the 4th battery I have had in the vehicle. Each time it just suddenly would not start. Never any warning. Also, there has always been a voltage fluctuation. At night I can see a slight flicker in the headlamps, almost like a pulsing, but it never failed to keep the battery charged.
I basically work out of my truck and can not afford to get stranded. I have been carrying a battery jumper to be safe but if the battery shorts out, as happened before, it will not even start with a jump.

Ever replace the starter? The bushings in the starter motor may be worn, causing it to drag and act like the battery is weak. This will also suck the life out of a battery as it has to dump a lot more current in the attempt to get the starter motor to turn.
