#325 of 382 I NEED HELP
Jul 11, 2009 (11:57 am)
I just got my 97 blazer as a gift. i knew it needed work but i have no idea how to fix this... Going down the road if you push the gas lightly you can get up to speed as long as your not on a hill, but as soon as you press the gas to much there is complet loss of power. it will keep running but it basicly boggs out. Can anyone tell me what might be the problem????

Couple of things to check. Air filter, fuel filter, would be the first place I would look. You said you got it as a gift. If it came from a family member, see if there are any maintenance records. These things will run with really bad spark plugs, so we won't go there first.
If it were mine, and there was no evidence it had been done, I would go with the two filters mentioned above. Neither are expensive, and both are easy to change. If you have never done an inline canister fuel filter, get help. It can be messy, and you will be dealing with gasoline, so be careful.

#331 of 382 97 Blazer transmission problem
Mar 15, 2010 (6:24 pm)
I have a 1997 Blazer and for the most part it runs strong. I have 132,000 miles on it. I had a problem with the transmission shifting very hard out of 1st gear after I would drive for about a half hour, or when ever the check engine light would come on. This problem occurred with in weeks after buying the vehicle. I drove it this way for about a year and a half. I changed the transmission and with in 10 minutes of putting the new transmission in, I was already experiencing the same problem. My mechanic says its a bad transmission. Could this be an electrical problem? My ignition switch has a tendency to stick and sometimes and probably should be replaced, I cant get the key out of the ignition for weeks. Could this have anything to do with the transmission problem??
#332 of 382 1997 Chevy Blazer Transmission Problem

My Blazer has just started to have some problems with the transmission not wanting to go back into neutral and start in first gear. When I slow down into a stopped position, and then get ready to apply the accelerator, the Blazer seems to be in second instead of first gear from a complete stopped position. I have topped off the transmission fluid. What do you think could be the problem?
From the Blazer being in a stopped position and then I apply the accelerator to start moving, the Blazer acts like it is starting in second instead of first... What should I do? I have topped off the transmission fluid. What should I do next?
#333 of 382 1997 Chevy Blazer Door Hinges Problem Sagging
May 20, 2010 (2:58 pm)
Hey there fellas,
My Blazer's driver side door has started to sag. I have looked at the door hinge and it looks like the top hinge on the door has sprung it's spring and the metal bushing has broken in half and is not there within the hinge pin area. How easy is it to get one of these hinge pin replacements and put it in yourself? What do you use and how long should it take and what tools do you use?
Thanks fellas! Charley McGilicutty

This is a very common failure in the S10 series. The pin and bushing sets are available at most autoparts stores. One tool you might want to buy/borrow is the door spring compression tool. It makes the job much easier and safer.
