    Default 1995 chevy blazer

    I was wondering if anyone would have any idea on what to look for with this
    problem I have with this vehicle.
    1995 Chevy S10 blazer.
    While driving down the road vehicle was running great, had just changed
    spark plug wires, and spark plugs, when it just shut off, put into neutral,
    and tried starting it, but would not start. Has never done this before.
    We are traveling at this time, so hubby thought it was the coil pack, so we
    had changed this along the highway hoping that was the problem but that was
    not it.
    Would anyone else have any idea what to look for, we checked all the fuses
    and they are good. It has been kind of hard to start lately, but other than
    that it run great.
    Thanks, for any info.
    Carol

    When you turn the key to the ON position do you hear the fuel pump turn
    on? Remove the fill cap and listen for a whine. If it has been hard to
    start and now it won't start I'd bet the pump has failed. You MAY be
    able to get it going again if you give it a sharp wack on the bottom of
    the tank. BUT DON'T TRUST IT EVEN IF THAT WORKS.

    Yes, you can hear the fuel pump whine but someone told us today, that does
    not mean it is getting enough of pressure to start it.
    So we are changing the pump, got it out need to go and get one tomorrow.

    make sure to have your shop check the fule pressure if your vehicle is
    kind enough to exhibit the symptoms at the shop. Reason being, some of
    these dumped fuel from the fuel pressure regulator-possibly flooding
    it out, causing it to stall. Hopefully they won't jump right to a
    pump as this may or may not be the problem. Lastly-it's possible to
    be fifty other things-good lucl! later jp

    If you can here the pump have it pressure tested before you go and buy a
    new one. No sense in replacing a possible good pump. There are a LOT of
    other items that can cause the same problem.

    Well we changed the pump and it started right up, but now it will not idle
    right, but it runs fine until you stop. It was not like this before it quite
    running. Check engine light is not on, can I still get someone to tell me
    what it is bye putting it on a machine, even though the check engine light
    is not on?
    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Drive it a while and see if the light comes on. What does it do when you
    stop?

    It just has a really bad idle,sounding almost like there is a exhaust leak
    and really bad smell of gas.
    We also changed the fuel module, first thinking that was it.
    It started right up this morning, before changing fuel filter I would have
    to push the gas peddle down a couple of times to start, but didn't have to
    this morning
