The other day I managed to get the Blazer running (still haven't
addressed the carb issue but I haven't had time) and decided to take it
out to the store cause I'm sick of driving my girlfriend's Pontiac
I pulled out onto traffic and when I hit the brakes to make my next
turn I heard a loud "Brrrrrrrr!" noise with a nice vibration to match.
Sounded like somebody dropping a bagful of screws into a set of
rotating gears. I quickly let off the brakes and the noise stopped.
When I hit the brakes the next time it did the exact same thing. When
I got to the store and hit the brakes there was no noise or vibration,
and it didn't do it again on the return trip home.
Now I've had a weird issue with the parking brake sticking. I can
release it and put it in gear and sometimes it doesn't want to move. I
can usually un-stick it by reapplying it and releasing it once or
Are these two issues related??? What the hell was that noise?
Thanks to all who offered up suggestions as to why the truck was dying
after a cold start. I popped the air cleaner off and saw a nice puddle
of gas in the carb while it was running... Guess I'm gonna take it off
and check the floats.
As always, any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
