1994 Chevrolet Blazer Tahoe LT V6 from North America


EGR valve went in and out for the first 2 years, had it opened up and blown out. The dealer said the mechanic found a little carbon buildup, but used his finger to clean it out. Must have worked because I haven't had a problem since (5 months now).

I, too, had the heater core leak into the cabin. This was a tough one because I never sit in the passenger seat and my interior is black. Never knew it until I took it to a mechanic and he found the passenger floor soaked! This cost $700 to fix - about $50 for the part and the rest in 5hrs of labor (you have to take the dashboard completely apart to get to the heater core).

Last weekend the power door lock on the driver side died. That's very annoying, but not the end of the world.

The rear defroster has never worked, I've been too lazy to figure out why. From reading here, it's probably where the cable is bent by the box on the tailgate window.

Water pump went out on it, had that replaced.

The coolant will be all brown and thick, presumably from rust, every 6 months. Yes, I use the correct coolant.

Replaced the brake pads for the first time at 100,000 miles. Not bad, very cheap and easy job.

General Comments:

I am definitely not going to buy anything from Chevy again. This is my first and last Chevy!

I own 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer Tahoe LT... it has 50,000 original miles on it and I have had to replace the heater core, both front electric window motors. For the most part this is a tough truck, garnet and khaki paint job, oversized tires and clean as a pin. First 10,000 takes it.

An excellent and comfortable everyday ride that can serve many purposes


The alternator went at about one hundred and fifty two thousand miles, however it didn't stop working completely, it just produced a low voltage on the gage. This cost sixty-nine dollars for the part.

Front brakes went at about one hundred and sixty, then after new one were put on a caliper was sticking shortly after, which wore the pad on the driver side down to nothing. It need new pads, rotor, and caliper on the driver side. It cost about fifty dollars for everything.

The serpentine belt replaced at one seventy because I was taking a trip to Maine with it. A transmission cooler was also added at the same time.

The water pump went at one seventy-five and it cost thirty-five dollars for a new one. It did not supply lock washers for the pulley and clutch fan so it pulled out shortly after and ruined the new serpentine belt.

The fuel pump went twice within two months, and it cost thirty-nine dollars the first time.

Just recently the central port injection unit broke also, and the new part cost 300 dollars, which after it was installed, leaked gas and almost blew the entire truck up. The replacement part is only going to cost 150 dollars.

The cap, rotor, plugs, and plug wires have all been replaced at the same time as the central port injection. They cost about 50 dollars for everything.

All prices are parts only because all work done on my truck is done by me.

General Comments:

Overall I am very happy with my truck, over the last summer it has taken me to Maine will towing six canoes on a trailer, New York for a festival, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The truck also was used as a pizza delivery vehicle and brings me back and forth 40 miles each way to school. It is an excellent and comfortable every day vehicle.

The two wheel drive allows the truck to ride smooth.

The electronic transmission shifts way to smooth and won't allow you to chirp second.

The ABS are fine until it snows.

A very quick and powerful vehicle for a V-6.

The truck will be a lot more powerful and fun when the supercharger and lowering package are installed in the near future.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
