it also takes about 6-7 seconds to start while turning over.... if yu turn the engine off then turn key to restart it will fire right back up... i need this thing to stop missfiring missfire is there all the time... sometimes seems worse than others.... also my vents inside the blazer were working and could control where it blew from... now the only place it will blow from is the top at windshield as if defrost is on no matter where i turn the knob.... and ideas on how too fix these would be a blessing thank yu all


Sounds like the spider fuel injector assembly. They're notorious for failure. Replace the whole assembly, not the individual injectors. HTH. -Jim


The climate control system has lost vacuum. When this happens it defaults to defrost for safety reasons. HTH. -Jim
