Thanks for the followup! It's always nice to save money on repairs.

You got hosed on your fuel pump too. Just changed mine (pretty easy) with a pump made in indiana for $330.

I keep telling everyone that I am trying to build a new car a piece at a time. So many things have gone wrong in a year-and-a-half. I'm afraid of what is next. I have replaced the brakes twice, alternator, serpentine belt, fuel pump, wheel bearing, and ball joints; and my water pump has supposedly been going out for a year. I have lived in my current apartment for one year and have had my car broken in to three times (the last time breaking out the window). So, I am pretty exhausted at this point.
What should a new water pump cost, should it finally go out?

Less than $50. It is basically the same water pump as used on a Chevy V8.

A 2000 Chevrolet Blazer with a serpentine belt must use a reverse flow (ccw) , long style water pump.
AC Delco 252-711 (new)
Rebuilt reverse flow water pumps vary from $35 - $50.
Chevrolet engines with a V-belt use a standard flow (cw) water pump.

A year ago, a mechanic gave me a price of $250. The most recent estimate was approximatley $450. I am a single woman, so I can't do it myself (not that a woman is not perfectly capable. It's just that "I" am not). Maybe when my boyfriend comes home I can have him fix it.

The hinge pin bushings were shot.
#146 of 192 2003 Blazer knocking under driverside floorboard around left foot
Jun 03, 2009 (6:46 pm)
While driving fast but more noticable when slow, going straight with AC on or off and in 2 or 4 wheel drive there is a knocking that I can feel on my left foot. It becomes more distinct the longer I've been driving. Any ideas? I just had new tires put on as well as a new oxygen sensor but I think I remember it before I had those repairs made. I crawled underneath and looked around but don't see anything obvious or even many functioning parts around the suspect area. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Very common for the fan clutch on a 4.3L to be very loud when first started and for the first few minutes. Not a concern unless the noise continues, indicating the fan clutch has locked up. This will kill your gas mileage, and also cause the engine to run cool.
