Check your timing, check that your ignition pick up coil is good. also check your fuel pressure. and check for any vacuum leaks. double check your coolant temp sensor to the ecm it tells the ecm what temp it is and the ecm adjusts the fuel amount accordingly.

The problem is fuel related. Disconnect the fuel line to see if fuel is reaching the carb.

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

I need to know if 1983 full size chevy blazers had an optional big block put in them.


The Chevy 3/4 and 1 ton trucks had an opion for a 454, The  Blazer did not but I suppose it could have been special ordered with a 454.

MY 1989 chevy silverado pulsates or urges in Idle. It allso does it from zero to 35mph then smooths out. problem is intermitent.


My fathers did the same thing. we soon figured out that the injectors were not making an even mist of fuel they were just dumping the fuel in. we replaced the injectors and the problem was fixed.
