SOURCE: purge solenoid location
which vehicle are you actually looking for the purge solenoid on? you have 2 vehicles listed in your question. i'll answer both, lol
the locations are described as if you are looking at the engine from the front of the car with hood open.
on the blazer:
it is located on the left side of the intake manifold just under and behind the throttlebody. it is a canister looking device.
on the silverado:
it is located on the intake manifold on the left side in about the same spot as the blazer. providing the silverado has the 5.3 or 5.7 liter engine. if it also has the 4.3 then obviously it will be the same.
hope this helps!

You will need to remove the right front wheel & wheel well liner. The canister purge valve is behind the cover. It should have two tube going into the bottom and one on the side near the top.
You can fix it!
If this helps you out please rate me!

Well, in my 1989 Olds 88, the oil filter is just above the right swingarm for the wheel. It's an interesting reach from underneath, and the oil drips directly onto the frame of the car, but that's where the filter should be.
I believe they use the same 3800 (3.8L V6) engine up through 1997 or 1998...so you should be able to find it there. Hope that helps!
