2001 Chevrolet Blazer Question: this vehicle runs good when cold. when it gets up to 180 it starts to run bad.
Answer #1pushrod February 28, 2013, 06:14Master
Need scan test, fuel pressure test with engine running and eng. off to check system for leak down.
When all the sensors were changed was the temp. SENSOR changed as well?

we have already changed the temp sensor twice. we even did a fuel pressure test. do you think that it could be the computer.

NAPA at a dealer
Replyglobalhelper, February 28, 2013, 07:15Master
napa at dealer, explain its one or the other. try this run car for approx 5 mins then shut off. on top of the intake manifold there is a 2" black plug remove it and see if the intake is full of fuel. if so you have a poss defective spider

we have done that. it only starts running bad when it starts to get warm. do you think that it could be the main computer since everything else is done and new. the other thing that we were told is that the main wiring harness. runs fine until 180 then it floods it self out.
