#133 of 497 96 Blazer won't start...sometimes
Feb 06, 2008 (4:11 pm)
I have a 96 Blazer LS, 156,000 miles, 4WD, 6cyl that runs like a top...when it starts!! 1st issue happened when turning the corner and the truck died and wouldn't start back up. Changed the cap and rotor and ignition mod. Ran great for a couple of weeks! One day didn't start...took the other truck, came home to check for spark, and it started! Ran great for a week. Went to start...no such luck! Same situation...took the other truck, came home to check for spark, lots of spark, but this time it didn't start. Towed it to the garage, put it on the charger overnight, mechanic went out checked some of the connections...all seemed fine, then hooked it up to the computer, and the truck started right up!! This was the 2nd time being on a computer, the only codes that come up are for a secondary O2 sensor which we know is related to the cat converter and have been told that it has nothing to do with the vehicle starting. So since it was running there wasn't really anything to fix. Drove it home, ran great for 2 days, went to start it this afternoon...NOTHING! Everytime there is spark and fuel. So what ever is going on is intermittent. We have stumped 2 mechanics. We were thinking next, maybe the ignition switch? PLEASE someone...I need some suggestions! Where do I check from here?
Thanks in advance!
PS I have a remote starter and we thought maybe it was malfunctioning, so we disconnected it. Not the problem!

I have a 1992 chevy blazer. It will start, run for about 5 minutes (until it is warm) then shut off. It will restart after it cools off (20 - 30 minutes). It seems to run fine, until it shuts off. I have replaced the fuel pump. Do you have any suggestions as to what might be the problem.

I have a 1992 chevy blazer that will start and run for about 5 minutes, until it gets warm and then stall. It will restart after it cools down, but then stalls again. I have replaced the fuel pump. Do you have any suggestions. Money is tight, and I can't afford to make costly repairs, that won't fix the problems.

Sounds like a classic coil problem. Check to see if you are getting spark when the engine dies.

How much does it cost for a new starter for my vehicle?
#139 of 497 Fuel System Problems

I just had the starter replaced on my 1993 Blazer, but she is still having a problem starting. It has a 4.3 L V6 Vortec with 191,000 miles. I've been told it could be build up in the injectors, but I've also been told it could be a compression problem. When I start it after sitting overnight I have to spray carburetor cleaner in the intake valve for it to fire. After that it's fine unless it sits longer that 30 - 45 minutes. After that time frame the whole spray to fire process starts again. Can anybody tell me what this problem is so I don't spend a fortune on pointless work and carburetor cleaner???!!!

I have a 92 S-10 Blazer with a 4.3L. It starts fine most of the time, but every once in awhile it won't start. It acts like the battery is dying. After waiting 10 minutes it will start up fine (without charging the battery). It does it whether or not I've charged the battery or not. Please help.

Could be an intermittent cell in the battery. How old is the battery, and have you checked the voltage on the battery when this occurs? Are the battery terminals clean?
Easy trick: when the engine won't start, turn on the head lights. If they are dim, you either have a bad battery or connection, probably also at the battery. If they are bright, but dim noticeably when you try to start the car, same thing, either battery or connections.
