I also have 2002 Chevy blazer. Well I took it to shop n he said it was catylist converter, it would stall n buckle down when gear. Also eat up gas and overheat. So he changed converter and when leaving it sounded like a truck worse than when was messed up. He advised me that it would run like that cuz I needed new spark plugs, one was cracked, and cuz he bought a generic cytylist converter. I left not happy with sound n was smelling bad like exhaust.
I took it to a muffle place and I have 2 wholes in exhaust pipes. One right by motor n pieces of gasket was missing in "y"pipe. And explained that they suppose to replace both at one. Pieces of converter breaks off n blocks muffler. And that it doesn't matter car won't sound or smell or drive same even with expensive converter. So called original mechanic told him n I took it n showed him n said he contracted the job n help fix it. Well I didn't cuz how could he not check. He's reputation is on his work. Didn't trust him. Sooo car got worse n would go only 10 miles n sometimes due n not start for some time. So took to other mechanic n it was dead the battery so we boosted it n took off 1/2 a block n died.
We put gas just in case n boosted it. It would turn n catch but chocking.. So I'd pump gas while turning key. N it would catch n I'd let go of key n it die. We adjusted cables n tried repeatedly to boost no luck. And when took off cables it wouldn't do anything at all no lights no nothing. Only when connected to cables. So new mechanic changed spark plugs n put new muffler n welded y pipe closed. Said he went to start n wouldnt. That it need a new starter. Wouldn't catch or turn. So he put new starter on n it started when put it gear it dyes. He don't know what's wrong. Please help
