    right its the cold start device thats causing the problem,diagnosing isnt the problem ,i would pop round and have a look but iam in alicante spain and second problem i have never seen one of these blazers only post replys so i couldnt tell you where it is on the vehicle.What happens is their is a sensor thats reading the air temperature and enrichening the mixture,now their could be two sensors as well with one measuring the outside temperature and another with a sensor in the engine block or cyl head and its all linked to a computer which is then allowing air to be drawn from either the outside or from the exhause shroud which is designed so that the manifold doesnt freeze up.Now where these sensors are ?? i honestly dont know but if emmisionwiz is about he could no doubt tell you straight away.Sorry i cant be more specific

Car won't crank after sitting for 3 hrs. or more unless sprayed with starter fluid

Cranking mean's turning over. has nothing to do with spraying starting fluid. If turning over might check fuel filter or pump. good luck.

Got a 2001 S-10 2.2L 4 cyl. Engine turns over,

Fuel pump is a good idea but wouldnt be the best place to start without troubleshooting first. HAve a fuel pressure test done. You may have a simple vacuum leak or maybe even a bad fuel pump relay. If those things check out then look to the pump.
