So is it that you do not have spark?

I don't know.I replaced the distributor cap and roter.

I also noticed that ALL my vacuum lined underneath my car were burnt in half but shouldn't the car still start.


What the vacuum lines that run to your 4x4 vacuum actuator? Anyway need to know if there is spark first...pull the coil wire and stick a spark plug into it, then lay the plug down on something metal, (ground) have someone turn the Blazer over and look for spark at the spark plug.
