Could be many things. Try the temperature sensor on the engine for water temperature; you probably have 2 with 1 working the dash gauge and the other controlling the engine setup. You want the engine to get a signal from the temperature sensor, because it does not know if it is cold without this signal.

Another part is the air temperature sensor in the air filter ductwork. Sensors should never be cleaned or sprayed with solvent. A third part, called a mass airflow sensor, MAF, is a screen like grid below the throttle body.

You can get a free scan from most of the autoparts places like Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys, but they usually do not do it without "Check engine " lights on.

1997 Blazer starts most of the time but about once a week it won't start

When the truck wont start, bang on fuel tank to shake the pump. If it starts, replace fuel pump. 60 psi is what you should see with good pump. Less than 55 it wont start.
