#448 of 496 1996 Chevy Blazer won't start on the first try
Dec 23, 2011 (8:23 pm)
Since it's gotten cold out (below 40) my blazer won't start on the first try after turning the ignition for 2 seconds (as long as it would take to normally start), but trying the 2nd time it starts okay. If I hold the key for much longer than 2 seconds it starts chugging but won't start and if I try a second time it chugs faster and will eventually start. It's got about 160k miles, I got a tune up 2 years, 10k miles ago, and that fixed the problem once before. Coolant temperature sensor (new) has recently been put in and a mass airflow sensor (from junkyard) has also been put in.
#449 of 496 Bad Gas Mileage after replacing fuel pump
Dec 25, 2011 (3:51 pm)
I have a 2002 Chevy blazer with about 215,000 miles on it. My fuel pump gave out ( I've had no other problems with my blazer before this, it ran just beautifully) recently and I had it replaced. After getting it back from my mechanic I noticed I was getting half of the gas mileage I used to get. I took it back and my mechanic changed my spark plugs. I picked up my car and drove it home. The next time I went to start my car it would not start. I had it towed to the firestone down the street, and had to change my Dist cap and rotary back. My car started up just fine, strong as ever. I'm still getting this horrible gas mileage, any ideas on what it could possibly be?
#450 of 496 2003 Chevy Blazer Hot Soak Issues
Dec 31, 2011 (8:51 am)
I have 2003 Chevy Blazer with 56,000 miles on it. When I start it to run an errand and drive it for less than a half hour - run in and come out after 20-30 minutes it will not kick in. Have to wait a few minutes and give it a few tries and finally starts. Replaced the fuel pump over a year and a half ago. The mechanic cannot figure this out. This has been in the shop 3 times for this issues.
Note: This only happens in the Winter when the temp is 32 degrees or below. Once the weather warms up no issues...........I can count on this starting every December for the past 3 years!

Sounds like a bad connection or wire that has moisture freezing on it (on a bad spot or bad/loose connection and the freezing moisture expands causing a loss of connection) and messing up your connection until the moisture unfreezes which allows for connection again.

At that many miles, I'd have to tell you to start saving up for a down payment. I'm not being a smart alec, I just don't know too many GM's, Fords or dodge that are worth anything afte 200k miles.
Some people might have these that made it past 200k, like you, but believe me, it's an oddity.
But do look into a Toyota for a small 4 or 6 cylinder.
Ford F-250 or 350 for a full size truck.
Research and see for yourself how many toyota's are reaching 300k at 400k miles.
A small for, GM or dodge reaching 300k? Just doesn't happen.

Did you ever find a solution for this? Because my 2001 Jimmy is having similar problems

No had some work done and had fuel filter replaced. Runs better, for now. The real test is hot weather, that is when the stalling was at its worst.
