You are in the Chevrolet Blazer
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Blazer, SUV

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 (5:46 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.

Own a 2000 chevy blazer. Makes a loud almost revving noise when its cold. noise will stop when you come to a stop and does not come back until the car is shut off. also when you stop it makes a clunking noise. any ideas. very similar to #107. almost the exact same thing. please help.

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.

No not like a fan clutch noise. Best way to describe is like the card in the bike tire. Only happens when the engine is cold. not even cool. I let the car sit for 3 hours and tried to make it happen and it wouldnt because it was still warm. Sounds like it is in the passenger side of the blazer. And the noise stops if you come to a stop sign and does not come back until next day or hours later. Im stumpped.

Possibly then a problem in the blower motor area? Try changing the fan speed and see if the noise changes. ABS is on the other side, so not likely the ABS module cycling.
