Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
Ok brief synopsis.
Yesterday I got my oil changed and while they had the car up, they mentioned to me that I probably could use a fuel filter change. Due to price, I declined got the rest of the general 3k mile maintence done.
So this morning I run out and jump in my car and turn the key, the engine is cranking but not catching. I figured it could just be a frozen fuel line and let it sit all day. Come back at lunch and still no go. A gentleman happened to notice me having issues with it and pointed out a few things
So brief synopsis.
1) Engine was running fine yesterday. No sputtering.
2) Starter is turning as belts and fans are moving when I turn the key.
3) Car has gas (1/4th tank)
4) Fuel pump is running as I can hear it when someone turns the key from my gas tank
I've noticed my car does have a bit of trouble starting in colder weather but not this bad. I'm pretty sure it this is somewhere along the fuel line but I have no idea how to be positive this isn't condensed water that froze in the bottom of the fuel tank.
have the same problem?
