    my blazer died on me last week and i have no idea why. I changed the cap and rotor bc they were totally shot, and it still wont run. Can you guy give me some options? I know its not fuel...im not getting any spark to my plugs.

    Checked your ignition module, coil and associated wiring?

    asuming that is hei which it most likely is make sure that the coil is the right one for your cap. there are two different coils and if you mix em up it wont work. Also watch out for the aftermarket stuff. My truck has that stupid huge accel cap and coil and i tried to switch the coil and use it on the same cap and it would not run.

    Second the ignition module. If it was running even halfway decent then just died, check the module. About $20-25 to figure it out.
