94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe trim package. I've owned since 1994. I've replaced the EGR twice, fuel pump, ABS wheel sensor twice, oil cooler lines, brake lines, and recently the CPI fuel regulator harness. Considering I have 156K miles on her... and I actually 4 wheel in the mountains often with this thing...I'm happy. My A/C needs to be serviced/replaced, but it's cheaper than buying a replacement rig. I've also been able to maintain solid gas mileage with this vehicle. The 4.3 Vortec has plenty of power and this little SUV climbs real well. I suggest cleaning the EGR before buying a new one; and buying just the CPI fuel regulator instead of the entire harness... costly mistake on my part.

I truly love my 94 S-10 Blazer, just scared to drive it. After a cruise down the highway (1/2 hour or more) when I exit, I have no power. It's like the transmission didn't downshift when I slowed down - kind of like starting out in 3rd gear. I have replaced the fuel injector (solved a different problem), a bunch of sensors, the heater core, and I disconnected the ABS the first week I had it because I hated the ABS (no big deal). I just can't seem to figure this out! Someone suggested unplugging the torque converter, but that makes it refuse to motivate in a forward direction, while reverse still works. Fluid levels are fine, transmission flush and filter change didn't make any difference (not excessive shavings in the pan). I really want to keep this vehicle on the road for at least two more years. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate some advice on this. firstname.lastname@example.org.

The problem is that most of you people pay these DEALERSHIPS for the parts! WOW! Aftermarket parts stores sell the same, if not higher quality, parts as the dealerships do! I can't believe what some of you pay for these EGR valves, just for example. I've picked them up brand new for less than 100 bucks. Perhaps learn to do some of your own auto repair. I don't feel sorry for those that refuse to learn. The auto repair industry makes a royal killing off of a lot of the people that write reviews on this site. EGR valves, brakes, and other similar items are all things you can do in your driveway. Do yourselves a favor, save some money, pick up a repair manual and attempt some of these repairs yourself.

Hey, that all sounds about right! My '94 S-10 is a treat, bought it with 80,000 and now have nearly 170K. A short list of replaced parts, brakes X 2, battery x 2, alternator, fuel pump and lines, water pump, thermostatic fan clutch, ball joints, power window motors, AC problems (vacuum leak and recharge), tailgate/window latch, rear window defrost. Heater core is about to die... just in time for winter. Found my first leak yesterday, I think transmission fluid? Seems to be a money pit, but at this stage in the game I'm in too deep! A quick comment regarding the squeaky rear window/tailgate combination. I replaced the latch on the window only to have it start squeaking again in a week. Try a little duct tape or electrical tape around the latch... a couple wraps will do. Seems to keep it from squeaking for up to a month or so. Regarding the ERG valve... I guess I've been lucky. No problems there!

I have a 1994 S-10 Blazer that currently will not start. As I was driving, it died at a red light. I got it started again and continued driving. I parked for 10 minutes. When I came back out to start it again, the engine would not turn over. I tried to start it for about 5 minutes, then I smelt something burning and didn't know what it was. I let the engine cool down and tried to start it again and it did. As I was driving at 35 MPH the service light came on, then it died. I have no idea what is wrong. Please help me if you know how to fix this problem.

I bought a 1994 jimmy pretty clean for Chicago drove fine all the way home. But the next day I tried to start it, it would not. Long story short I changed the spark plugs because the old ones end up being full of gas. The guy I got it from said he never had that problem, but you know how that goes. Can anyone help. email email@example.com

I have a 1994 Chevrolet Blazer...white...the outside body, paint, inside seats and all are in near perfect condition. I have 97,000 miles on it. It is a four door, 4-wheel drive.
I have had to have a new fuel pump, but nothing major since. Now, it is having problems. The bushings need to be replaced. I had lower left hand and lower right hand ball joints replaced, new brake pads and idler arm replaced last week. Drove it a few days, then it started jerking. Had it towed and emission control is messed up. The radio does not come on... This blazer has been a great vehicle It is costing me plenty to get it running again. Maybe it is time to let it go.

I have a 94' Chevy blazer and the heater core is shot. Leaked all through my lower vents. I just bought a new one, from the auto parts store, (like $22). But I do not know how to get to, and remove the old one. If anyone could write me and give me a general idea of how to get the dash apart and get the old one out. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I have a 94 s-10 blazer whose four wheel drive is no longer functioning. At about 30 miles per hour I can press the 4hi button and I will hear a relay click. A few seconds I will hear a slight clunk sounding like the hubs are being locked in. how ever when I drive up my drive way which is on a hill with snow on it I fish tail up the whole way. Never used to be like this. Any ideas on what the problem could be or even an explanation on how the 4 wheel drive system works would be very helpful. I would like to get some input before I decide to repair it my self or pay someone to do it. Thanks.

OK we have a 94 S-10 Blazer with the 4.3 Vortex air the hole nine, the problem we’re having is gas mileage (10 per gal.), I have changed all cap/rotor/wires/plug etc.. But when you give it the light touch on the gas to go it doesn’t want to go acts as if its running out of gas, flutters/bog down till you give more gas and once she picks up your good. Any input would be helpful.. Also the 4 wheel will not work, worked fine, but then I turned it off now it doesn’t light up when I push the button for 4 wheel drive or go into 4 wheel? Any input would be great. email@example.com.
