Needs a tune.up. change cuel filter as well..

Fuel filter as well.


My first guess would be LOW fuel pump pressure. (fuel pump,fuel filter, etc) http://www.diagnosecarmisfires.com/

U think so? Lol..

I will check that in next day or two..I check on fire an it was strong,but could have changed..

Cool. It will be fuel related John. If u can do a basic tune up that would be a plus. Plugs and wires do go bad. Have a nice evening. Keep us informed...

Well after ruff ride to work done quik look , an it seem the problem was a broken vacum line off canister bolted to underside of hood..it all seems good now...thanks for input!

Cool. Glad u solved it. Cruise on!!!

Now that the blazer is fixed wife comes home in her 06 accord, u no the one with the touch screen controls! It's blowing hot on driver side,an cold on other...what is it an were would a GM guy with fat fingers start? Can anyone help with this one?
