I have a 96 S-10 Blazer...
recently I had some trouble getting her to start in the mornings (when
it’s cold or wet?). Acts like it wants to....tries to turn over but
won’t catch. By the time I come home starts just fine. Everytime I
had someone look at it nothing was happening. Never did anything
except hope it would start.
A few weeks ago it started happening again & I had a friend look at
it. He replaced a temp sensor? Said it was bad & that it was telling
the computer the truck was overheating therefore not allowing it to
start? Seemed to work (or at least help) but....
Now, for the past 3 days my truck won’t start! The battery is almost
dead from trying.
I’ve heard everything from the starter to the fuel pump!!
I don’t know what to do...I cannot afford to take it to a shop or

Remove the distributor cap and rotor and look for a metal plate in the
bottom. It's got a sensor attached to it, and some wires going to it.
See if the plate is loose. If it is, tighten it down and see if that
helps. I knew of a '92 GMC small pickup (can't remember what it's
called) that would sometimes start, sometimes not, sometimes die while
going down the road. I helped the owner locate this plate and it never
had a problem after that.
