If you're asking about the electronic pressure control solenoid, it's on the driver side of the valve body. There are 4 sols on that side, it's the one closest to the rear. It's bigger & heavier than the other 3.

solenoid switch is on top of starter . thare is also a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood . find this relay and see if it clicks when the key is turned over.get someone to turn key while you put your finger on the relay if its clicking then the starter solenoid is bad,some of thesesolenoids must be replaced with the starter.

SOURCE: purge solenoid location
which vehicle are you actually looking for the purge solenoid on? you have 2 vehicles listed in your question. i'll answer both, lol
the locations are described as if you are looking at the engine from the front of the car with hood open.
on the blazer:
it is located on the left side of the intake manifold just under and behind the throttlebody. it is a canister looking device.
on the silverado:
it is located on the intake manifold on the left side in about the same spot as the blazer. providing the silverado has the 5.3 or 5.7 liter engine. if it also has the 4.3 then obviously it will be the same.
hope this helps!
