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.

Default she asked if I was a mechanic, I said NO, I'm a blazer owner!

I was on my way home from work in rush hour traffic & on the approach to a freeway overpass I see a ZR2 off to the side with the hood up. Went past them, down a few blocks, turned around & made my way back. (not going to happen for a ford unless the driver was hot lol)
As I drove past them to pull infront & said "whats wrong with the blazer?" They had a stunned look lol
They said it crapped out crossing the intersection, totally died, turns over but wont run.
So I get under the hood, check cables, notice the air cap on the throttle body doesn't have the plastic fastener on it but no other obvious signs. Ask them to turn it over & thats all it does. Hmmmm, ignition I'm thinking OR no fuel, so I grabbed a can of seafoam I had in the blazer & got them to turn it over as I poured a bit in the throttle body - it fired! So I tell them it's not getting any fuel bla bla bla, I looked for the fuse (DS dash & under the hood) for the fuel pump, couldn't find it.
lmao she asked if I was a mechanic, I said NO, I'm a blazer owner!
They had already called the tow truck so I said tell your mechanic there's no fuel to the engine, he'll figure it out from there.

Either fuel pump went to the wayside, fuse or who knows, but when I cycled the throttle NOTHING.
Even when I crawled under the back end to listen for the pump to run when they put it to RUN there was nothing, but I did see sketchy wiring for their trailer plug & told them.
& yes I plugged blazerforum.com to them
Who else has been a good boyscout?

Now they know about our secret Fourm! lol

Their's always that good feeling you get when you help someone out on the side of the road.
In these times when people care about nothing but themselves, it's almost a shocker to have someone pull over and ask "You need help?"


Do a good turn daily

Extra points if you know what that is!

Its nice to help people out and for that you get, the Boy Scout Citizenship Award. But it is true you never see people pull over to help another person out. Good for you.

but is it a "totally selfless act?"
what is that?... personally I got satisfaction that I helped soomeone, a fellow blazer owner, plugged bf.com & told them about other issues that I saw IE: wiring & air intake & yeah
on the other hand I helped out a person/s with a stranded vehicle

I felt I was showing off - doing something because I can!

but I couldn't do that... it wasn't selfless, I liked doing that for myself & telling them about the multitude of search options, the detailed blogs that encompass every & anything to do with a blazer or related vehicles... damnit yeah, I need a BF sign lol

& "keep the law of the wolfcub pack & do a good turn to someone eveeryday" hehehe!

Lol, I'll totally laugh if in the next few days we see someone join the forum with that same story. But, It's always nice to have someone help out when your car breaks that's where buddies come in handy :P they fix your **** you fix theirs.

That would be the Scout motto. Regardless of your intentions I still consider trying to help others to be good karma.

Well when I sold the clear-corner lights I had the guy wanted me to install them.

"Sure, I'll have you out of here in 10 minutes!"

Then I asked him if he had the foglights, which he did... *sigh* "Dude, I mentioned in my ad that these won't be compatible with foglights, they'll fit but you'll lose that function" To which I got, "Oh that's fine, they're useless anyway, you can just unplug them and leave them hanging in the bumper."

I was going to tell him NO, but then I remembered I didn't care lol, I just wanted my $40.00... So I grabbed the electrical tape and taped the sheeat out of the plugs for the foglight bulbs... "Why you doin' that?" "Ummm... to stop the contacts in the plug from corroding lest you decide to put the fogs back in..." "Oh... really?" "Yup... that's called road salt acting to oxidize the copper contacts"

I realized I was going over his head so I just stopped talking and got him on his way. After I got an, "Are you a mechanic?" "Nope... I used to own a Blazer" To which I thought 'but it wasn't a POS like yours!'
