dnoyeb's Journal: 1995 Chevy Blazer 1

Journal by dnoyeb

I used to hate this truck when it started eating brakes in its first year of operation. Then it started eating fuel pumps. But after 10 years I don't hate it so bad as thats pretty much the only major problems I have had with it. It requires a new fuel pump every 2 years, and it requires new brakes every year.

Of course this was a 1995 blazer not a 1985 one and I should expect more. That does kind of suck and is not what I would expect from a vehicle I paid $20000 for. And I do sit here now needing to put a new fuel pump on. Every few years I put new electronic ignition system in because thats what it looks like when the fuel pump is going awol. $$$

I have always bought GM cars. Perhaps its time to try a Chrysler.

  • Maybe the troubles with the fuel pump is related to the fuel you use?
    If you always use the same brand/grade, perhaps you should try a different one for a long while to see if the situation improves?
    I know that the 1994 Chevy S-10 Blazer Vortec 4x4 my wife previously owned would knock if the fuel used was less than 89 octane.

    We had to replace the fuel pump, solenoid and even the tank all at once because it had all rusted due to the salt used on the roads in the midwest where she drove it until she moved here
