If you are smelling gas it is because you are getting excess fuel somewhere
Most likely it is the fuel injection unit or the fuel pressure regulator inside the intake plenium on top of the motor there is a shrader valve on top on drivers side of air intake on the fuel lines have someone pressure test the fuel pressure when you turn the key on and off three or more times to prime the pressure then turn the key off and watch the gauge while priming pressure the pressure should be 60 psi then after priming pressure and turning key off pressure should drop to 55psi and hold that pressure for 5 minutes minimum if it does not hold that pressure and starts dropping to zero your fuel injection unit and pressure regulator are leaking and dumping excess gas into the air intake plenium and it is easier to replace the injection unit and the pressure regulator as you can buy them cheaper combined a new injection unit comes with the new fuel pressure regulator
And if they are leaking gasoline after a failed pressure test that is why you are smelling gasoline
Have it pressure tested right away as if this indeed is the cause the excess fuel could combust at one point and cause a lot more damage
A pressure tester can be purchased at advanced auto for around 35 or any reputable garage can pressure test it in front of you in 5 minutes it's easy

You have a 4L60E whick is controled by your ECM. It sounds like you need and new transmission, the sun gear in it has failed and is the weak point on this transmission. 
When you get a new transmission have them to a corvette servo upgrade. The part is only $45.00 and the shop should know about the upgrade. It will make your truck shift a lot more firmer but last longer. 
Here is a write up http://s-series.org/component/option,com_tech_article/Itemid,/item,6/task,item/
Good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: Can I replace wheel bearings on my 2 wheel drive 2001 BLAZER

In addition to the great answer above, it is extreamly improtant to torque the front hub nut to the proper torque. If you under or over torque the nut which puts pressure on the bearing, you will be changing it again in a very short time. Refer to a shop manual, or go to the local auto parts store and look at a chiltons manual for reference torque value.

I have a 99 chevy blazer it smoke when you give it gas it dont smell like oil no water is coming the tailpipe it is a strong smell of gas


Sounds like a bad head gasket. This will need to be replaced soon if its bad enough to be smoking. One way to find out if this is the problem, is to look at the oil filler cap, if there is corrosion, white residue, or water, you most likely have a bad head gasket. Also check the oil thru the dipstick, if it looks
Like theres water or antifreeze in the oil this is also a sign of bad gasket.

At startup engine runs rough with a white smoke out of exaust with a sulfur smell. . stops after tthe engine reaches op temp.


On a vehicle that old, especially with high mileage, the symptoms you describe are fairly typical of a failing head gasket. When head gaskets begin to fail, they will allow water to drip into one or more cylinders, which will burn off as steam when the car is first started. Check to see if you are losing any coolant, however small the amount.
If the vehicle has recently been allowed to overheat, near 100% probability that you will need to have the head gasket replaced.
If by "sulfur smell," you mean a smell of raw gasoline, the problem can also be a sticky startup injector... but less likely than the chance of a bad head gasket.

I just replaced intake manifold gaskets value cover gaskets and know I have no oil pressure but there is noise in values what could be the problem will not drive it and I'm loosening everything only have...


Sounds like you didn't get the manifold sealed correctly and the engine is sucking air in and not creating any internal suction, or the oil jackets are plugged with stuff, or gasket is covering oil jackets. Or the pump dried out and needs replaced. The valve noise is due to lack of pressure.

White smoke and a smell of fuel


The white smoke is from anti freeze. The smell of gas in your oil is probably from the same cause. I do beleive you did not clean the milled ares good enough before installing one or both of your gaskets. Just in case you did loosen one of the head bolts up for any reason....One bolt I do beleive on the right front bank of this engine has to be also sealed before re enstalling it for coolant will pass through it if not sealed

1991 chevy s-10 bazer sucks to much gas and into the exhaust


I had a similar problem with gas smell and bad gas mileage. The problem was: a gasket that goes around the carburetor covering the jets had worn out allowing gas to pour out and burn off the hot engine. The gasket cost less than $1 to replace. When properly mounted, the gasket stopped the gas leak, which stopped the gas smell meriting an exponential improvement with my gas mileage.

Hard to start and smell gas


have 1994 4.3 cpi and the problem I had sounds same.
It was a leaky pressure line in pletium . easy fix $45.00 part $15.00 gasket.
the leak was caused from the fuel lines rubbing together in pletium.
take the vortec cover off ,then remove air regulator in middle and look inside . I turned on power to key and gas spray came from drivers side of pletium looking in hole.fuel line side. if gas spray on passanger side then gas regulator faulty. takes 5 min to check
After fixing truck runs runs great. no more gas smell in cab.
also you can smell oil for gas
