I purchased a 95 Chev Blazer at a dirt cheap price $175.00 not running. Turned out to be a bad fuel pump (100.00). Replaced it and the engine fired right up. Ran great for about 2 days, then took it on the beach. Noticed the temp gauge rising on the way out, but dropped again once we got on the road. The more we drove over the next few days, the temp would rise on the highway then start running rough. Changed the coolant temp sensor, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs and wires, Oil & filter, trans fluid & filter, air filter, one headlight, 2 rear tires, and exhaust pipe. Coolant temp still slowly creeps up beyond normal, and I have noticed it runs very rich. Any ideas? All in all, I have spent about $800.00, and after reading don't want to spend any more. Thinking I should sell it while I can.

I have owned my 1995 Blazer since 1995. I bought it brand new and put 195k miles on it. Not once has a oil line blew on me. I have taken perfect care of this and have put a lot of after market upgrades on it to make it faster and a lot more fun. This is a great SUV and I am very happy with what I have and how reliable it is. The only thing that has broken was the ball joints because I lowered it 7 inches and the alignment just trashed the joints.

I have a 1995 chevy blazer other than replacing the fuel pump, spark plug wires and tires and air filter. Everything else is original. I now have 450,000 miles. Almost a half a million miles on the original engine and transmission. It out lasted 3 of the hondas I have own. I'll never buy a import again.

I have a 95 blazer, and it is sitting in my garage broke down again. This time it is white smoke and was running rough. When on the way to get the squib injector replace I ran out of gas, when try'n to restart the motor stooped turning over. The starter or bearing's maby. Never buy this vehicle please, all the things that you have read on this car survey are true. GM stands for GIVEME MONEY to replace our stuff. JOE.

We just bought a 1995 Chevy S10 Blazer in July of this year. We have not been able to drive it very far as of yet. Sputter and choke.. We had to clean the EGR valve and put a new gasket with a screen on.. and now it is November and cold.. our heater blows warm air only for a short period and then stops. The windows fog over and you can't see to even drive. Yep that's great. If anybody else has this problem please email us at email@example.com.. We cannot figure out this problem. any suggestions would be great!! NO more Chevys...EVER!!!

I have a 95 Chevy S-10 Blazer, and I have now reached 206K. I must admit it has been a good car, but it has also cost me quite a bit. I now need a fuel injector. A mechanic told me that this is the worst year for the blazer, and Chevy screwed up with this one.

I have a 99 Blazer LT with 108,000 miles and yes just like everyone else the oil cooler line was replaced, changed while it was still leaking and well before it blew. Heater core was replaced and just did the water pump. also the AC compressor and alternator was replaced. Actually it has been a real good vehicle for the miles.

My 1995 Blazer just blew up. The oil lines have been replace before when leaking. My wife was driving it recently and by the time she got pulled over and shut down the engine and then it blew - The oil line pulled right out of the crimped fitting. I've always bought GM, I have three family members that work for GM, but this might be the last one I own.

I Have A 95 blazer runs drives good!! after replacing Rear end, oil lines twice, three egr valves, intake manifold, plugs wires cap rotor, fuel pump, idle air control valve, and normal mantience. have always loved Chevy, but not the best year for them. I would still recommend it to everyone, All cars have problems oil lines should not keep you from buying this truck.

When you replace these oil cooler lines the new GM lines are steel crimped if you cheap out with a cheap aftermarket oil line you will not fix this problem long term.

I have a 95 Blazer.
The engine coolant temperature and oil pressure gauge don't go back to the zero point when it's turn off. Please, I need answers to firstname.lastname@example.org

Today on my weekly 75 mile trip back to college from home my oil cooling lines blew (think I said that right). I was half-way there and noticed my check gages light come on, and saw that oil pressure was at zero. I've heard before how bad it is if there is zero oil pressure, so immediately pulled over and shut it off. I had to wait almost 2 hours for my bf to come rescue me, then had to have a tow truck tow it back home while my bf brought me to college. As they were putting it onto the truck gas started spilling out also, while it was tilted. I never thought so much would go wrong with my blazer at once, its been a good vehicle so far but beginning to have second thoughts. I cried watching it be put on the truck : (

I bought a 1995 Blazer LT 4x4 with the Vortec 4.3L V6 engine last December with about 240,000km for about $4,000. My dad told me it was a great deal, he lied. Since then I've put about another 40,000km on it and almost $3,000 in repairs and there's still plenty more to do. The 4WD has not worked since literally right after the warranty was up, which was 30 days. The body was in great shape until after the first winter, now there is rust coming out almost everywhere. I'm going to need four new shocks four new tires and a new muffler (when I can afford it) and today my thermostat broke and I have no heat. I'm not exactly sure how much all of that is going to cost to fix but I'm guessing around $2,000, bringing the total amount of this truck so far to about $9000. I'm positive I could have bought a much better, more reliable vehicle for that amount to begin with, but I couldn't wait to get a truck and I got this Blazer. I'm not too sure about the newer Blazers, but if anyone is thinking about purchasing a used 1995-97 Blazer, think twice, even if it seems like a great deal.
