Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
The Vortec engines were notorious for those kind of problems. The problem will be under the upper-intake manifold, and the fuel injector assembly will either have a cracked plastic fuel line running out to one or more of the fuel injectors, or the fuel pressure regulator that is located on the end of the fuel injector assembly is faulty or it has detached from the fuel injector assembly. Either way the lower intake manifold will be flooded with fuel anytime that the fuel pump runs.
There were two types made, the first type had fuel lines that connected to the lower intake manifold, and then from the metal fittings the fuel line turns into plastic and runs inside the lower intake manifold and under the upper-intake manifold where it runs over to the fuel injector assembly, and this type can really flood out an engine when it becomes faulty.
The second type had metal fuel lines running over the upper intake manifold and they connected to the top of the fuel injector assembly, however, under the upper-intake manifold there are still plastic lines to the fuel injectors and also the fuel pressure regulator that could be faulty and cause the engine to severely flood.
The upper-intake manifold is not that difficult to remove, and after you remove the upper-intake manifold then (replace the fuel lines to the fuel injector assembly if it is the second type) turn the ignition to the "Run" position and when the fuel pump runs you should see where the fuel is leaking/spraying from, and it will most likely be a large high pressure leak from a ruptured plastic fuel line.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.
