Spray some quick start in the carburator and see if it starts for a bit, if it does, it's fuel related issue. Check fuel pressure. If it doesn't, check for spark at the spark plugs. One of these has to be missing. If it starts with quick start and it shows you have fuel pressure, the injectors are not opening and that can be caused by a bad crank sensor. If still doesn't start, do a compression test. If everything looks good, check the catalytic converter, it might be plugged up

lrodri911 - Thank you for your response and advice. The blazer has 1 fuel injector (The Spider) The wierd thing is. That it will temporarily start when spraying starting fluid in the throttle body. And I've traced the fuel up to the spider. The fuel stops there doesn't go pasted the fuel injector. It has 6 small hoses to the ports fuel doesn't come out of those hoses.


The center piece of the spider is a solonoid is that correct? Is that correct? I've been told that might be the problem. The only thing is.. It's not sold individually. The whole thing is sold as one and costs $269.99 at O'Reilly's.


Stick or auto/I am sure auto.give me 2 small (sep) shotsof starter fluid.let me know what you hear.and whst happens.if it starts keep it goung 6 minutes.

Ok if it starts when you spray quick start, then the computer is not sending signal to injectors, since you said there's fuel pressure. Replace crank sensor

First check to see if there's voltage to the solenoid in the center, if there's voltage and doesn't spray fuel, then it's the solenoid but check it to make sure

As for the spider injector assembly, just replace it. They're very troublesome. Be sure you get the newer designed unit which is much better and more reliable. HTH. -Jim

I can't thank u enough for the feed back. I will replace the crank sensor tomorrow. The center piece in the "spider" fuel injector (solenoid) has a 2 wire harness I checked the wires with a test light one is hot and one is ground. The hot wire is getting power and I tested the ground wire with the test light. Put the alligator clip of the test light on the positive terminal of the battery and touched the negative wire on the harness of the solenoid in the "spider fuel injector" and the test light did light up. So both wires are good and the unit is getting power and ground.

You see the clean spot on the passenger side of that intake? It's not supposed to be clean. Unless you did it, that's an indication of the regulator leaking. These injectors will not fire anything below 50psi. To properly test the system you need a fuel pressure gauge to test for pressure and see if it holds that pressure. You've already go the Spider injector so you might be good, if that doesn't work go get a fuel pressure gauge
