I have a 2000 Chev Blazer that has had trouble starting lately. I got stuck in the parking lot at school and had it towed into a neighbourhood garage on Thursday last week. They said it was the fuel pump and I was forced to shell out $900 for that.
Since then, I've woken up to find that it won't start in the morning. One time I boosted it and it held a charge and I was able to go to school for several hours and still drive it home.
It wouldn't start again tonight, so I used a battery charger and got it back up and running.
I don't know what's wrong, obviously. I had it in 4-5 months ago to replace the alternator, so I really hope its not that.
Here is a picture of something that may be the problem. The black wheel part spins a couple of times and then stops. What is that thing (so I don't sound like a jackass if I try and tell anyone else)? Is that related?
Is there anything else I can try before I take it back to those jerks at the garage?
