You didn't say if there was an engine light on. I'd check the t.p.s. throttle position sensor. It could be a jumped timing belt,based on the year , it's got milelage.

Hi it sounds like the petrol filter is blocked and the fuel is not getting in properly for it to go on full throttle...change the petrol filter and check that fuel pumps properly from the petrol pump...

I have an 02 ZR2 blazer it starts n runs idles smooth but blogs down when u give it gas lack of power I have replaced maf sensor n new fuel pump new plugs wires n rotor but still not running right.

Check for a restricted exhaust. Could be the catilitic converter, a bent pipe or a collapsed baffle in the muffler. The engine needs to breath just like we do. It sounds like you are getting enough air in at idle and under load, but if that extra air can't get back out from being restricted, then it will bog down. It's like if you were to try jogging and only being able to breath out through a straw. That's what I would check before replacing a bunch of expensive sensors.

99' blazer gas gauge eratic

I have the same problem on my 99 ZR2 Blazer. This is the rheostat in the gas tank. I bought my part in Ebay for $27. The only issue is that you have to drop the gas tank and pull the sending unit to install. Hope this helps, I hear from other message boards that it is a very common problem in these vehicles.
