This is a fairly simple job with a good repair manual. There are 6 or 8 injectors depending on the engine.

#4 cylinder misfire

This is a Central Point Injection system. He could not check the injectors that easy. You need to get a thermal camera, or a temperature gun. Take a look at the temperature of the exhaust when the van is running. You will see that the cylinder #4 will be cool compared to the rest. Also you will see that cylinder #4 spark plug will be White in color, when removed. The electrodes of the spark plug will be white. That is a lean condition. That injector is bad. You will need to pull the intake manifold and replace the central point injection system as a whole. AC DELCO Central Port Fuel Injection for Silverado Sierra Express Savana...

Problems with 93 chevy blazer

Your blazer has central fuel injection (CFI). You said you changed injectors, but your injector in inside the intake manifold, and only has one injector and a "spider" of nylon tubes from the central injector to each intake port. It is common for these spiders to break, causing fuel to leak into the inside of the manifold, and cause problems like you described. The spiders are available as reconditioned and are quite expensive,

i'm pretty sure you have a Central Port Injection setup on this engine. Which means the injectors are inside of the upper plenum and cannot be seen. This type of fuel injection system uses a centrally located electric fuel injector(s) which feed fuel to a mechanical poppet style injector which is routed directly above the intake valves for each cylinder.

The poppet valves require a minimum of 56 psi of fuel pressure. If you have 55 psi it will not start. It needs the fuel pressure to overcome the mechanical resistance of the poppet injectors. Fuel pressure should at least be 60 psi. It is very important to check fuel pressure with an accurate gauge.

If fuel pressure is low it will not start no matter what you do and a new fuel pump will likley fix the problem. Get a good quality pump such as an a/c deco or Dephi. Other brands may be cheaper but they will not last.

If fuel pressure checks out good let me know and I'll give you some more info.

Not recieving gas to crank.

You jimmy has no throttle body, the injectors are in the intake manifold in front of the intake ports. To have them activate, you need 62 to 65 PSI at the shredder valve. Anything different will not activate the injectors and DO NOT TRY TO START THE ENGINE BY PORING GAS THROUGH THE THROTTLE BODY. It's been know for the gas to catch fire and burn up the poppet valves, (fuel injectors) which will result in a $1,500 Spider injector replacement. If you do not have the proper fuel pressure, chances are the fuel pump will need to be replaced. When replacing the fuel pump, replace the wire harness from the fuel pump to the frame, it's only $12.00 and will keep the gremlins away. Good luck and keep me posted, the other thing too that would cause the injectors not to fire is a bad ignition modulator with is located under the rotor in the distributor. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your jimmy running again soon.

The problem may be that it has 55 psi instead of 60-65. Could be the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump itself. I have read that these engines need 60 psi minimum to start reliably. Also with the engine off, look down the throttle body with a flashlight and see if the intake appears wet inside, indicating leaking central injectors. There is an upgraded injector assembly available with pressure regulator at autoparts stores. Requires 4-5 hours to replace with experienced mechanical skill level. Would definately upgrade if the pressure regulator needs replaced anyway.
