Sounds like you need to take it in for a computer diagnostic. Check your fuel pressure and fuel volume.

You may have a clogged catalytic converter. Disconnect it from the manifold and drive it again see what happens.

Yesterday my 1993 chevy s-10 blazer was driving fine but when i cut it off and went in the house for a second and went to crank it back up it wouldn't start it turnsover when i turn the key and its getting...

If you are sure you have a spark to at least half of the plugs, and there is no reason to suspect that the engine was being used abnormally just before it was shut down then it is most likely flooded or you ran out of gas.
Black smoke from the tailpipe indicates that the engine is getting a fuel mixture abnormally high in fuel (flooding). White smoke generally indicates not enough fuel.
Unless your engine is damaged or the timing changed, your engine will run if it has the following: proper fuel mixture, air, a spark to at least half of the spark plugs, and compression.
For a "flooded" engine there are two routes. Wait until the excess fuel has had time to dissipate or hold the accelerator to the floor while attempting to start. Be prepared to let off the accelerator about halfway as soon as it starts. And then down to about 1500 rpm. You do not want to over rev the engine. But holding it at about 1500 rpms for about 3-5 seconds will help flush out any excess fuel. You can then slowly return it to idle speed.

1994 s10 4 by 4 blazer ,eng/ 4.3 v6 with tpi / auto ////// car does run , battery went dead , replaced with a new battery. tried to start the car , it had been sitting for 3 weeks,,....

I'm assuming it won't start now with the new battery..
they do sometimes flood, but not usually unless there's a regulator problem, etc..
but try starting fluid into intake 1st.
If it starts and runs, then proceed..
You'll have to start by checking if the fuel pump is running with key to ON 1st and foremost.
the power to pump.
If so, then check for fuel pressure
then power to spark/coil, etc..
then spark
then other..
even Temp sensor switch...(check wiring diagram in Haynes repair manual)
too much to check from there on if no start still

I'm not an expert, just tryin to help from much experience with Chevys

1994 full size blazer runs fine for about a minute after start up after that it acts like it floods out catches back up everytime you hit the gas after 10 min of that it runs ok what is wrong with it?...

Sounds like it is either your tps or air idle control.
You dont say if you have a check engine lite on.
If lite is on it will be easy to find with a scanner.
This is a fairly common problem..
Hope I was of some help.......

Poor Acceleration Stalls at idle

It likely needs a fuel pump, hook up a fuel pressure gauge, it needs to be 11-13 psi

Have a 1994 blazer, was acting like not getting gas, and some times acts like it is flooding. Have changed the fuel filter, it was dirty. It is still doing the same thing.

Test the fuel pressure. Also run some really good cleaaner ( like Techron ) through the sysytem. If you have good fuel pressure, have the regulator tested. Hope this helps;
