    thanks for the info,i am not losing any anti freeze but it does have a cylinder that misses bad when it is smoking,i think you may have a thought that the fuel portion of the intake may have a leaky gasket,i guess i will take manifold off and then the head,thanks again,

Are you losing antifreeze? white smoke is usually a sign that antifreeze is getting into the cylinders and the result is the white smoke from the tailpipe. if you do a compression test and inspect the spark plugs for wetness you will find the cylinder that is leaking (you will have to replace the head gasket on the side if the engine if you find antifreeze in the cylinders) some times with blown head gaskets you will notice a lot of pressure in the radiator as well as air bubbles coming out of the radiator (caused by the compression coming from the cylinder through the cooling system and escaping through the radiator overflow or fill cap if you have it removed)
if there is any coolant galleries (water jackets) around the fuel plentum you may be getting the antifreeze into the intake/cylinders that way as well
hope this helps.....and keep me posted with comments here and ill be glad to assist you further.......thanks s60six!

I'm not familiar with Chevy's but a similar problem over the pond that is quite common is the EGR valve clogging up.
Not sure if this is relevant to a 2001 model but worth checking out.
Electricial cleaner is the best to use I have found.
hope this is of some help.

1999 Chevy blazer. Changed fuel pump, wont stay running.engine revs up and down, if I try to push in the gas pedal to see if it will clear up, it bogsdown and dies. Could this be the fuel pressure...

Yes sounds like a regulator issue. On the 99 blazer the regulator is under the plastic intake plenum and is a part of the fuel injection spider. I would also check for vacuum leaks and your idle air solenoid.

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer 4.3 4 wheel drive. It stalled and would not start again. The garage said the fuel pump and fuel regulator first , hen they replaced that they now say its the spider assembly on...

The spider is one injector that supplies six small lines going to the cylinders instead of having one injector for each cylinder.
I would ask for a partial refund for parts and/or labor on the fuel pump job if that did not fix the problem. They should apply some or most of that cost to the cost of replacing the injector assembly if they diagnosed the problem as being the pump first.

Know if my 95 chevy blazer has a spider CPI?

A spider injector is located underneath the intake plenum and this is multi-port. Otherwise you have a throttle body injector system. Vortec engines have spider injectors and they are super expensive to replace ($400.00- 850.00) each ! There is only one spider injector for each engine it has 6 legs/fuel tubes that go to each cylinder.

Replacing the o rings on a 95 chevy s10 2.2

The Injectors are right there in opening of the throttle body. There are not individual injectors for each cylinder.
There 2 or 4 injectors that spray the gas right on top the throttle plate. The entire manifold is filled with the gas/air mixture.
