Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
How to releave pressure
From your description, I'm guessing Fuel Injection.
Before you do anything to the fuel system: READ THIS!!!
Take it seriously!
If your engine is Fuel Injected, gas in the fuel line can remain under pressure (+40 p.s.i.) for days.
Pulling a fuel line under pressure will result in gas shooting out. Under the right circumstances, you can release gas in a way that it becomes aerosol.
To put what this means in perspective, the most powerful non-nuclear ordinance possessed by the military is called an FAE. Fuel / Air Explosive, a.k.a. M.O.A.B. ( Mother Of All Bombs). Same aerosol. Not something you want released in your garage (or in your face) much less igniting.
Removing the gas cap will only equalize the pressures between the interior and exterior of the tank. Not the fuel lines.
Relieving the pressure is simple, so are the precautions to take to do it safely.
Have a Happy and Safe New Year
