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!

The purge control is to allow the engine to **** gas vapors out of the charcoal canister that vents the gas tank. It will be in the engine compartment, and you should be able to see the canister as a cylinder about 4 inches in diameter and maybe 8 inches high. Follow the tubing to a valve that goes to the intake manifold. The valve should shut off at idle, but open at higher speeds. There is also a diagram in the engine compartment that shows where it is.

In the rear up high near fuel tank or along frame rail,
among the EVAP System Components
Need a diagram of system to find & test components
Really need a scan tool & EVAP Smoke machine,
to test & find out, if you have anything that doesn't work
I assume you know codes do not tell you what is wrong
or what to replace,vehicles do not self diagnose themselves
and likely never will
