Yes it would. Take a can of Brakleen and with engine running spray around intake manifold. If it is the source of your leak, the idle will go up.

1999 Chevy Blazer loosing power going up hills and bucking. Fuel filters were changed, cat replaced ( are there 2 or 1 on this model) sensors changed. Need the car to run


have you checked sensor connections around intake. check for any broken or cracked vacuum lines. check for vacuum leaks around plastic portion on intake, {i'm assuming you have the 4.3L vortec engine} if all this is good then have fuel pump pressure tested.
