Question about Cars & Trucks
It is a 4.3 vortex with throttle body injection.........this car is a 4x4 s -10 blazer
4.3 TBI (throttle body injector) You dont have a TBI you should be equipt with a CSFI people in the field call this the spider injector,they inject fuel into tubes for each cylinder , as for the fuel pressure it should be 54 psi to 60 psi,and this is for a 4.3, The CSFI system does plug up which causes rough idle due to the poppet valve or seat,to stick open or closed,Ive ran fuel injector cleaner that has been sucesfull maybe you can try that

Sounds like you have an injector leaking. Have someone just cycle the key on and off to run the fuel pump but don't crank the engine. If you see fuel dripping from the injectors, unbolt the injector cover on the throttle body, remove the injectors and replace the orings around the injectors.

If the 8th letter of the VIN # is W which i bet it is than your fuel pressure is to low.
This engine uses a CPI unit to deliver fuel to the cylinders. The CPI unit consists of a central injector that feeds fuel to the poppet valve that are right above the intake valves. The poppet valves require high fuel pressure in order to open and deliver fuel to the cylinders at start up.
The reason why it starts and runs if you add a little gas through the throttle body is that once the vehicle is running the intake is under vacuum. The poppets can open with less fuel pressure in a vacuum. This is a real common scenario with these style injection systems.
A new good quality fuel pump (a/c delco or delphi are good pumps) and your fuel pressure should be back into spec of 58 psi or more and the vehicle should fire right up. Make sure you replace the fuel filter when you replace the pump.
