P1406 is a EGR problem on the gm products, P1406 is a vent hose disconnect to the axle on the ford products. The PCM does not know where the EGR pintle is. This can cause poor running and bad idle. About the only thing that you can do is remove the EGR, clean it and carefully inspect the plug and connections on the valve its self. If that does not solve the problem then its time for a new one. Look at the wiring harness to the valve for crushed / cut wire also. It is possible to bench test the valve but it does require a good multimeter. Good luck and hope this helps. Use a carb cleaner to get the carbon out of the EGR valve

I have a 99 Chevy blazer, it will start but as soon as I press the gas it died. I have already changed the fuel pump.

Did you change the fuel filter also? Look at the air filter. If you have throttle injection, make sure both injectors are working. Might want to clean throttle also. Check for codes? Idle air control motor stuck could cause this. Tune up maybe. I would check compression of the cylinders before putting any more money in it.

I need the firing order for a 93 chevy blazer distributor.where is number 1?

Firing order for a 4.3 liter v6 1-6-5-4-3-2

#1 piston is the first spark plug drivers side front of engine.
Passenger side cylinders are 2 4 6
Drivers side cylinders are 1 3 5
Distributor rotates clockwise and the starting spot is marked with a 1 on the top of the distributor cap.
Make sure you note the position of the 1 on the old cap before you take it off so you don't rotate the new one 180 out

You need to check the fuel press, the test port in on the rail, also run a code test on the ECM/PCM, this checks for trouble codes and also lets you know the computer is working if it tests ok.
