Air filter clogged, fuel not reaching the fuel injection system. Corroded battery connections especially the ground. Faulty coolant temperature sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Give it a tune-up change the air filter, fuel filter and pressure regulator, spark plugs and wires. If it is one ignition coil it'll be easy to change so change it too. Change the engine oil and filter. I strongly recommend a tune-up but the problem is caused by one or two of the mentioned sensors. Give it a tune-up and replace the coolant sensor first, let me know how it goes.

My charger stopped while I was driving and would not restart

Battery? Charging system? Fan belts to alternator? Will it jump start? If starts with jump but stalls when jumper cable removed charging system is not working. No AAA or equal? Might be time to sign up.

Loss of power

Loss of Power while driving down the road can be caused by many different things. What you might try first is to immediately stop the vehicle when this condition occurs, shut of engine, remove fuel filler cap listening for a rushing air sound when releasing/removing the fuel filler cap. If you have this condition it would be best to use either the Dealer or an ASE Certified mechanic that is very familiar with similar problems. I am not familiar with just what is involved on your specific vehicle. Clogged Fuel Filter, Air leaking where fuel line is joined between tank and engine or crimped or collapsed fuel line from running over an object. Any one of these things could be your problem.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down

Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

1998 4 wheel dr Blazer with 4.3 6 cyl. seems to jump or surge when driving down the road and does it worse when stopped at red light.

Sounds like it is skipping? If yes, you may have lost a cylinder, due to no spark, or a bad fuel injector.

Lights go off and on driving down the road and voltmeter jumps down and up alternator tested good

Check the wiring to the headlights first and check the wiring connections to the light switch as well as to ensure the battery terminals are clean tight and tight to the alternator to start with.
