I have a chevy S10(S14) with an add-on A/C system possibly from factory but afterwards if you understand what I mean but my question is 1.I can't get air to blow through dash vents or rather the (white) vaccum line going to the actuater doesn't have any vaccum but there is no obstructions and the switch seems to be OK and when you switch the lines it will work 2. we don't know how much freon goes in the system because we can't find any literature

Look for a site glass on the small high pressure line.This will be helpful when you charge the system. Charge the system at a fast idle or slightly above 1200 to 1400 rpm.As you charge you will see bubbles in the glass and a fommy look to the freeon as you charge the A/C It will start to cool even before the bubbles go away. Keep charging untill the site glass clears up! Stop as soon as there are no more bubbles seen.This is the best way i know how for you to charge the system and not check the high side pressures as you charge.

200 chevy s10 2.2L 5sd 2wd code P0171 indicates that the bank 1 system is too lean for predetermined period of time

It means the engine fuel air mixture is incorrect. Too much air makes lean fuel burn. The computer will try to adjust by enriching the fuel air mixture. At some point it reaches a limit and kicks a code. Check for sources of intake or vacuum leaks.

Replace the cat back exhaust in a 2002 chevy blazer (S10)?

If there is no flange just in front of the cat then it has to be unbolted from the manifold, If this is not possible you will have to cut pipes and purchase sleeves to connect afterwards hope this helps.
