ON THE INTAKE MANIFOLD OF MY 2000 CHEVY BLAZER WITH A 4.3 L V-6 RIGHT IN FRONT OF WHERE THE AIR FILTER CONNECTS IN THE CENTER i HAD SOMETHING BLOW OUT . I'M THINKING IT'S THE PCV VALVE, BUT I'M NOT SURE. IT HAS A RUBBER HOSE CONNECTED TO IT. LOOKING AT THE MOTOR FROM THE FRONT IT IS TO THE RIGHT FRONT SIDE. CAN YOU SHOW ME A DIAGRAM OR DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

Re: SOMETHING BLEW OUT ON MY INTAKE MANIFOLD.
"blew out" is a bit dramatic...If it's a pcv hose it should have a ton of suction at the open end or where it had been attached.Also with that hose detached, your engine won't run at idle very well or at all. Most often, any hose that becomes disconnected stays pretty close to where it's supposed to be attached. Simply look for a clean attachment nipple near where you found the hose and put it back there.

It is the part where the air duct coming from the air filter housing connects to, right between the air duct and the flex hose that connects it to the intake manifold.
THIS IS A MAF SENSOR ADAPTER. THE SENSOR WOULD BE MOUNTED ON THE RECTANGULAR BASE AND FASTENED WITH THE TWO SCREWS
THIS IS THE IAC SENSOR, MOUNTED ON THE INTAKE MANIFOLD, BY THE MAF SENSOR.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
