I changed the module under the "distributer" caps that are numbered 1-6. Then I changed the fuel filter. Now I changed the fuel pump but same problem occurs. can anyone help me...Please? I am at a loss. Thanks.

I have a 96 chevy blazer v 6 . it is hard to start. cold or warm. sometimes it starts when i crank the engine with quick turns of the key. if i hook up a set of jumper cables to another car it starts immediatly with no problem and runs fine. the battery is not dead when i do this. i even bought a new batt with higher amps. still no good. jumping it always works and it runs fine. is it possible to be a weak coil and the extra battery power gives it more spark power. dont know please help.
