I have a 1993 Chevy K5 Blazer. It was driving fine and then died as I pulled into the driveway at home. Tried to restart it and it just sputters.
This Vehicle was towed into my Shop:
First I checked for spark, spark was good. Then I installed a fuel pressure gauge and measure 0 psi of fuel pressure. I then applied voltage to the pump from the fuel pump relay. No fuel pressure. Dropped fuel tank and replaced fuel pump and strainer. Also replaced fuel filter. Tested fuel pressure at 15 psi and Blazer now runs fine.
Repair cost for fuel pump, strainer and filter $300.00 + tax
