Blazer LT - You are a genius!!

I tightened the hinge bolt on the passenger side and..........NO MORE NOISE!!!!!!! Thank you so much for posting this. I dropped off my truck at the local GM dealership and they kept my car for three days without finding the source of this noise. The work order said the technician lubed the wheel stops. I still heard the sound immediately after leaving the dealership. I was so mad that I didn't bother turning around to complain and lose my car for another few days. TheY fixed my fuel gauge issue and I'm happy about that but I don't understand why the technician didn't refer to the advisory concerning this issue. I fixed the problem myself in 15 minutes thanks to your post. Thanks again Blazer LT my truck feels solid again. No more embarrassing clunks, squeaks, and burps!!!!

Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

wow, this thread has been alive forever.... i really hope this will solve my problems..... i have a s-15 91 v6 4.3L jimmy and ive got this horrable clunk, i am really hopeing this will solve my problem, i just replaced my ball joints and let my shop do it this time cost me 400 bucks which i am not happy about, ive gotten so many other things replaced all mybushings replaced..... am not sure what i have done about my sway bar was going to check that....

My problem is; around turns i get this loud clunk that i can feel on the floor. i can feel it on the drivers side, but passengers say it is VERY noticable.
i will try the hood thing see if its loose at all tomorrow, and when i get some money see about the torsion bar mounts, or see if they are loose....

this should work with a 91 right?

Clunking in an 1994 and earlier is usally due to the torsion bar mount pretty well under your driver's or passenger's seat.

99 Blazer Fuel Probs. There is very little fuel pressure in the lines. Is there a clog or is the pump going bad. I checked the fuel valve (on top near the carb.) and it drizzles out....

Change your fuel pressure regulator.

Update: After tightening the bolts the sound went away for about two weeks
until I hit a really rough road under construction. The noise came back with a vengence. At least this time I knew where it was coming from thanks to BlazerLT's tip.


I then purchased the spring washers. I only had noise on the passenger side but I put the washers on both sides. Now everything is nice and snug. No slop. Still can't believe the dealership did not refer to their service advisories. Truck feels solid again despite all its quirks. At least one quirk is gone.
Thanks again BlazerLT

Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

Blazer LT, I was wondering what was changed in 2004 as your original post states "from 9?-03". I have a 05 ZR2 with 77k that has a bad case of the clunks coming from the front drivers side, to the point of me crossing my fingers on washboard roads!! Intrestingly I checked the hood and have about an 1/8 of inch play on the PASSENGER side. Four year old thread still going strong... thanks in advance for any suggestions....

Probably the same thing. The cone washers should fix it right up. Good luck.

Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

Might as well change the year to 1995-2005...... I did the fix and it worked flawlessly on my 05....... and I'm sure saved me some serious $$$$$$... thanks Blazer LT.

As a side note: truck returned the favour by turning on the CEL and unfortunatly unlike the clunk I don't think it will be a $10 fix. Thoughts and ideas welcome here http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbul...d.php?t=924387.
