We have a 1999 Chevrolet S10 Blazer 4 wheel drive with the Vortech 6 cyc engine 4.3 liter. Our problems started when we had a friend change the plugs on it about a year ago. Shortly after that, the vehicle was mostly hard to start first thing in the morning, but after starting it would start right up the remainder of the day. This happended especially if it was rainy. We first replaced the fuel filter which had no effect. We then towed to mechanic who replaced the fuel pump (twice). The first time it started and ran fine for couple of weeks, then had to be towed to mechanic again. This time it has been a couple of months. The vehicle continues to be very unreliable about starting. This last time we had mechanic come to home instead of towing and he replaced distributor cap and wire and rotor and it started right up! However, after a couple of days. Again, sometimes it starts and sometimes not. Just never know. Do you have any idea what we or the mechanic (who is apparantly stumped) could check to see what replacement is needed.
have the same problem?
