Blazer runs fine in cold weather but as soon as it gets hot weather the engine dies while driving. It will start back up and I can travel a few miles and the engine will die again. The air conditioning is not being used and nothing else is on except the radio. I know nothing about cars so any help will be appreciated.

    Try running a full tank of gas the fuel pumps are known to go out .
    if you run a full tank and it seems to help because its keeping it cooler then you know its time to replace the pump . It is never good to run a vehicle on below a quarter tank any make or model at that
