Did you spray a little ether in the intake to see if it will start , ck the fuel pressure at the fuel rail , should be about 50 psi +-, if not make sure you are getting 12 volts to the pump before you have to change the pump it is in the tank , good luck

You may have a bad fuel pump, First thing is to change the fuel filter since that's the cheaper of the two and you can find the filter under the driver's side  inside frame rail.
Once that's been changed and you still have the problem then it's a good chance that it's your fuel pump has gone bad. Try doing a fuel pressure test and there should be a think 44 psi at idle, but please dubble check that it is 44 psi for your blazer.
Good luck and the fuel pump is in the gas tank, if your going to have to change the fuel pump, don't forget to change the wire harness from the frame rail to the pump since you have it apart. The harness is only $12.00 and that's a good investment if the wries are getting brittle and a broken wire will get you to drop the tank again.

My 1994 nisan sentra, limited edition has a putt in the gas... when driving, what can i do?

A "putt in the gas"??? Do you mean that your engine is "hesitating on acceleration"? If this is what you mean, it is usually caused by either a dirty throttle body or a faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). I would try cleaning the throttle body first.

My sons 83 crown vic is not getting gas. It gets gas where the gas line hooks into the throttle body, but for some reason nothing is coming out of the injectors. Was working fine one day and the next...

The throttle body is basically a single large injector, and it could have burned out its solenoid. It is controlled by a brainbox that uses the distributor input, temp sensor input, throttle position input, etc., so there are many possible problems.
The best way is to let someone put it on a diagnostic machine unfortunately.

98 Camaro 3.8 V6 stalls when started w/cold engine

Sounds like your throttle body and throttle plate are full of carbon.You also have a idle air control motor with a pintle on the end that gets carbon on them.Go to your local parts store and get a can of throttle body cleaner and a old tooth brush and clean throttle body and plate and if you can remove the IAC and clean the pintle and bore. that should take care of your stalling.
