#342 of 497 CHEVY BLAZER STALLING
May 08, 2010 (3:14 pm)
I have a 2001 chevy blazer, my dad took it to the mechanic and replaced the starter about 2 months ago. lately the same problem starts up again. I went to the store and then it would not start on me. I waited 15 minutes and it did start again, the filter is new the starter is new. What causes this problem, I see a lot of people who owns this type of vehicle has the same problem as mine. Please help me.

#344 of 497 99 Jimmy stalling while driving
May 09, 2010 (6:00 pm)
My 99 Jimmy runs fine all winter, but as soon as it gets hot outside, it starts stalling while I'm driving. It does not sputter or anything. It will start easily, as it should, then go for a few minutes and stall again. It will continue to turn over easily, but just stalls quietly. Anyone have any ideas where i should start ? It seems to be related to the hot weather....is the computer overheating maybe....Please help ??

If you have not sold the truck, a way to check if it is the fuel pump is take a hammer and using the flat side of it bang on the fuel tank. Band on it a few times and if the truck starts then you know it is the pump and even being a girl, with an extra set of hands you can replace it very easy.
#346 of 497 97 Blazer wont start
May 25, 2010 (9:48 am)
My 97 Blazer will not start. I have replaced the fuel pump twice in the past 6 months.
I just replaced the fuel filter and it ran fine for two days. Now when I pour gas into the carb area it will start and run as long as I keep pouring it in. I am getting fuel from pump and through filter. I checked the pressure relive valve and I get nothing but drips out of it. Someone please help. I used this truck for business as well as personal and need transportation very soon.
#347 of 497 Re; #270 - Intermittent start/stall
May 26, 2010 (3:23 pm)
2002 Chevy Blazer - I had the intermittent starting problem (#270) for a couple of years. Car would start then stall right away. Never could tell when it would happen. Maybe the first start of the day or maybe later during another start. Have to hold the accelerator for about 10 minutes until the car decided to run on it's own. No computer codes and no one could figure it out unless it happened in the shops - never did. Many trial and error repairs. The time before last I was assured the worn distributor wires were the cause. It wasn't. The last time the IAC (Idle Air Control) was replaced and I haven't had the problem for the last 4 weeks!

If I remember correctly the 305 in your Blazer is not the stock engine but is from the 1980's. That said it sounds like a carb problem or specifically the electric choke. Depending on the year many of those carbs can't be torn down and rebuilt unless you are willing to do some drilling and tapping. The adjustment screws are often NOT adjustable (thus the drilling and tapping) which makes it a real pain to do anything with the carb.
When you restart the engine what does the exhaust look and smell like? Is it dark and smelling of fuel? If so that makes me think your choke isn't working properly. Without a carb in front of me I can't remember for sure but I THINK the choke can be replaced. Myself I would look at replacing the entire carb with one that can be adjusted.
#350 of 497 Stalling and power loss
Jul 03, 2010 (3:06 pm)
My 1998 Chevy Blazer has the habit of losing power and sometimes stalling while driving down the road. It is especially bad on hills but does do it on flat roads. It feels like it is loading up when the problem occurs. The engine has 128,000 on it and other than this issue it runs great.
I am going to replace the fuel filter this evening but would like input from anyone else who has had this problem.
