This may sound silly but make sure the top plastic piece that fits on the throttle body is secure. Not more than an hour ago a friend and I were tracking down a vacuum leak on his 2000 Chevy Blazer (same vehicle). I removed that top part of the air intake hose assembly and the engine stalled! It wouldn't restart until I put the piece back on. There's a metal clip that goes on the throttle body to hold the piece on so it must be a ground for the ignition system. If yours is loose, maybe that's the problem. Just a thought! HTH. -Jim

This may sound silly but locate a guy that knows how to work on vehicles.
