I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what cylinder is misfiring; sometimes clogged fuel injectors cause this. Have you tried replacing any?

Check the compression on the suspect cylinders to rule ot a blown head gasket(compression loss between cylinders). Then check that injectors have power on those two cylinders . you may have injectors / wiring problem) since these cylinders are all on the same side dont over look this) runnig rich could be ignition problem make sure to check for spark at the plugs.

Also, here some information:
Poor Engine Performance - Misfire, Rough Idle, Stalls, Engine Cranks but Does Not Run, Service Engine Soon/Check Engine Light Illuminated, DTC P0300 Set (Inspect Distributor Ignition (DI) System Components and Replace As Necessary)

2001-2003 Chevrolet Astro, Blazer, Express, S-10

2001-2003 GMC Jimmy, Safari, Savana, Sonoma

2001 Oldsmobile Bravada

with 4.3L, 5.0L or 5.7L Gas Engine (VINs W, X, M, R -- RPOs L35, LU3, L30, L31)

Some customers may comment on poor engine performance and the Service Engine Soon/Check Engine light being illuminated. Upon investigation, the technician may find DTC P0300 set.

Cause

This condition may be due to high levels of internal corrosion in the distributor, causing misfire, rough idle, stall and Engine Cranks But Does Not Run. This corrosion is attributed to a lack of airflow internal to the cap caused by the vent screens being clogged with debris.

Correction

Remove the vent screens and inspect the internal components of the Distributor Ignition System using the procedure listed below. If the distributor base has to be replaced, the vent screens will also have to be removed on the new distributor. If there is evidence of this internal corrosion, replace the affected component. .

Inspect the distributor cap. You may notice a white residue on the cap walls. For higher mileage occurrences, the interior of the cap may have changed to medium brown in color

Inspect the distributor rotor. You may notice the presence of black streaks on the plastic surface. More typical evidence would be visible green spots on the copper surface of the rotor segment.

Inspect the distributor base. You may notice high levels of surface rust on the distributor shaft or surface contamination on the sensor hold down screws.
Object Number:(NNN) NNN-NNNN Size: SH


Inspect the distributor vent screens (1). If the vent screens are present, remove them by using a plastic-handled, long blade awl or pick (2). Insert into the airflow vent screens and pop them out. Refer to the figure for removal procedure. If the vent screens have been removed from the base of the distributor, then check the airflow inlets for being clogged with debris.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chevy blazer 4.3l engine\is backfiring

Start by checking each cylinder for spark with a good spark tester. A misifre is either spark or fuel, so you can cut the problem in half. The engine light is probably on due to the misfire.

SOURCE: have code for cylinder #1 misfire on 96 chevy

these were bad for the spider injectors to fail. they are hard to diagnose with out the scan tool. the poppets in the end of the injectors get clogged and will need to be replaced. pull the plug and see if its oil fouled. they also have a problem with the #1 cyl getting out of round and oil fouling the plug. compare it to another plug in the engine. if its oil fouled the engine is no good.

2001 chevy blazer 4x4 check engine light flashes on highway no codes?


If it blinks and goes away, it is a "random misfire" that culminates before the light begins blinking. Sustained misfiring will result in a code, and the light staying on. If the light blinks and goes away, the issue is intermittent. Your problem usually occurs under acceleration or heavy load. The issue can often be solved with new spark plugs, though it could also be dirty injectors. The injectors on that vehicle are infamous, however I have been able to fix your problem with repeated use of highly concentrated fuel system cleaner. I use at least 3 times the recommended concentration of whatever cleaner. People rave about Sea Foam. I have used it and it works -- though I can't say whether it worked better than other brands I have used. I have owned 3 Blazers and 2 S-10's, including my current 2001 Blazer LT.

you may need all new plugs and wires. Now if you said you had a hard time starting it, i'd say be ready to replace the fuel pump, mine just went out last year at 90k. i have an 02.
