Reader Question Sir,

I own a 1998 Chevy Blazer with 19,500 original miles. The car has given me problems since day one of purchase in June 1999.

Here is the problem I am currently attempting to correct:

The car will run for three or four days then will not start again for a long period of time. The hand-held computer diagnostic check continues to refer to the oxygen sensor. I just replaced two oxygen sensors this past Saturday on either end of the catalytic converter.

The car ran good for two and half days and at noon yesterday, it would not start again. The engine is getting gas and the motor sounds as if it wants to turn-over, but it just wont do so. The starter appears strong as there is no problem there as far as we can tell.

I have found that on occasion if we lock and unlock the door a number of times, the car will finally start.

I was told this past Saturday that there is one additional oxygen sensor toward the right rear of the car that also needs to be replaced along with the A/C compressor (which is leaking).

Please advise on what you feel may be wrong with my car. I would love to keep the car for our two younger children to use when we return to Oklahoma in April 2009 or shortly there after as I am employed by the U.S. Army here in Seoul, Korea and to say the least, finding a reliable mechanic to repair the car is almost nil to none. The Daewoo GM folks here will not touch the car as they say its too old.

With only 19,500 original miles the car is in excellent condition with the exception of this one major flaw. I would also like to know why the security light continues to come on after the car has sat for a long time as well.

The car sat for almost three months until we could get the parts we were told we needed - ran for just over two days; and now is parked in the underground garage pending a response from you or someone you might be able to refer us to for answers.
Thanks,
Ralph

Hey there Ralph,

A few things come to mind here.

1. Since your security light is coming on, I wonder if your ignition key has those two small "chips" on the side of the key for the security system. If the security light flashes as you are cranking the engine over, the security system is probably the reason the engine will not start.

I would try another ignition key and see if that helps. If you don’t have those two small chips on the side of the ignition key, I would look at the ignition lock cylinder and ignition switch to see if there is a problem there.
