General Chat Chat about all things Blazer (and related vehicles). Off-topic stuff should be in the lounge, and all mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

I switch back to a GM after 5 years and after not even two weeks of owning it, the eff'n fuel pump goes out. I know it is a common problem, but geeez. Not even two weeks.
Should I go back to foreign?

Doesn't matter how long you've owned it, but how old and how many miles it has.

88,914 on the clock, built in December 2000.
I dont have the time to work on it. AAA just picked it up and took it to my mechanic. Just paid the sales tax on it yesterday and now I have to drop another $600.

One thing bad on a weak chevy fuel pump is to run low to out of gas, chevy built the pumps such that the gas in the tank cools the pumps off rather than just put in a decent pump. On an older pump all it takes is one time of low fuel and they are done.

Especially you Ken... you'll bring it to the mechanics and you'll get the "WTF is this mate?" look when they see the Blazer.
