Chevy Blazer Acceleration, Electrical or Fuel Problem
Here are the facts:
I went to church yesterday (about 5 miles). Rain was coming down pretty good. No problems.
About 2 hours later, started for home. Rain coming down pretty good, yet.
Stopped at a light about 1 1/2 miles from church. When green, gave it normal gas. Very poor acceleration. Fuel gauge reads just under 1/4 tank.
I then let off the accelerator and then pressed it ever so slightly. I did accelerate, but obviously not very fast.
About 30 seconds or so later, we were fine.
This happened about 2 or 3 more times until I got home. The last time (a few blocks away), I noticed that the gas gauge was doing strange things. It went down to "empty" and the fuel light came on. But then it went back up to about a quarter tank shortly later. Then the vehicle began to run normally again.
I pulled in the drive way and let the car sit. It rained pretty good that day until later in the evening. Late in the evening, I attempted to start it to take a quick drive. It would not start. It would try and try and try, but would not start -almost as if no fuel getting to the engine.
I let it sit overnight. It is not raining, but is quite damp. I put about 1 1/2 gallons of fuel in the tank (all I have at home). Tried to start it several times, but to no avail.
I never had this problem before. No other lights beside the fuel light had come on yesterday when I was driving.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
