I have a 2000 Blazer I went to start it and it turns over but wont start. What could be my issue? Its firing, and the fuel pump does not seem to be turning on.

Check fuel pressure first. It may be a failed pump.

This is the 2nd time it has happened in 4 months. No one figured it out the first time. The last time 3 days later it started on its own. Now its done it again, I cannot hear the pump at all. Like the last time. But what throws the mechanics off too is it has a misfire and they cant find it either: /

You need a new shop. It is not that difficult to diag these issues.

Start with fuel pressure check

give us the codes from the car.

Hi,
The mechanic found it was the fuel pump. That was costly. But it still has a misfire.
When it is cold but once it has warmed up it goes away or at least I dont feel it jerking.
What could that be?

Thanks
