Having problems with your 2001 Chevrolet Blazer ?

My 01 Blazer is completely will not start. There is no turn over sound; Absolutely no sounds at all.

\015 I just bought a new battery about two weeks ago. Lately, there has been a rattling noise coming from the engine for the past two weeks. I drive 40 mile a day, 4 days a week. Plus for some reason, it will not keep anti-freeze. I've put a one jag of anti-freeze over the past month. I don't know anything about engines or anything about vehicles. PLEASE HELP!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-12-2017

Answers :

You could have serious trouble with the engine losing that much anti-freeze. If it is not leaking out somewhere onto the ground, it may be from a bad head gasket that is letting coolant burn in the cylinders (you would see white smoke out the exhaust), or it may let the coolant get mixed into the oil in the lower engine's crankcase.
Pull the oil dipstick and look at it. If the level is way high, or if the oil color is milky brown looking, then you have water (anti-freeze) in the oil-a bad head gasket, and a big expense to fix it. That would explain the rattling: water in the oil stops the oil from lubricating properly, and the engine bearings and other moving parts inside the engine can be damaged. If this is the case, and the reason for the rattling, then the engine is shot and needs a total overhaul, or you need a different engine.
If the coolant was leaking outside, post back. Has the engine ever overheated from low coolant? The rattling is worrisome-have a mechanic listen to it if you get it started. If it won't crank over, have someone see if the engine can be turned by hand-if it still turns freely (not siezed up), then the starting circuit needs to be checked for why the starter won't work. Good luck. Check the oil first thing.
