Hi, to change the fuel filter, follow the steps below.

Disconnect the negative cable at the battery.

Loosen the fuel tank filler cap to relieve any fuel tank vapor pressure.

Wrap a shop towel around the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and remove the dust cap from the valve.

Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader valve.

Install the free end of the gauge bleed hose into an approved gasoline container, and open the gauge bleed valve to relieve the fuel pressure.

Flush the fuel filter line connectors with water, and use compressed air to blow debris off and away from the connectors.

Remove the fuel inlet and outlet lines from the filter following manufacture recommendations (have something around to catch gas that is in the lines and to lay the lines in while prepairing to put new filter on.

To install a new filter, begin by wiping the male tube ends of the new filter with a clean shop towel.

Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube ends on the filter.

Check the quick connectors to be sure the large collar on each connector has rotated back to the original position. The springs must be visible on the inside diameter of each quick connector.

Then install the filter in the proper direction and leave the mounting bolt slightly loose.

Install the outlet connector onto the filter outlet tube and press the connector firmly in place until the
spring snaps into position.

Grasp the fuel line and try to pull this line from the filter to be sure the quick connector is locked in place.

Then, do the same with the inlet connector.

Now tighten the filter retaining bolt to the specified torque.

Once everything is connected, lower the vehicle, start the engine, and check for fuel leaks at the filter.

More than likely it is the encoder motor on the transfer case if it is Auto 4x4.

You will have to take the steering knuckle completely out of the way, which requires getting the ball joints loose from the knuckle. You will also have to take the bottom bolt out of the shock because there is not enough clearance to get past it. The Blazers had two different was of holding the CV shafts to the front axle housing, a series of 15mm bolts or a retainer clip on the shaft that goes into the differential. If you don't see bolts, then you should be able to pop the CV shaft out with a pry bar. Give it a few good shoves to reinstall the new shaft.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Use an easy out. Almost looks like a torque bit but has more grip and gets tighter as you go to loosen.

If the compressor is cycling on and off and the system isn't getting very cold it's low on freon. You'll need to have it leak tested, repaired, and recharged.

The air/fuel mixture screws meter the fuel that flows under each primary throttle plate when the throttle is closed at engine idle. Both of the air/fuel mixture screws control fuel flow.

Turning the mixture screws "in" will decrease the fuel flow and "lean" out the air/fuel mixture, and turning the mixture screws "out" will increase the fuel flow and "en-rich" the air/fuel mixture.

To adjust the air/fuel mixture warm up the engine to normal operating temperature and with the choke off at normal idle speed. Adjust the air/fuel mixture screws one at a time, and turn each air/fuel mixture screw "in" until the engine just begins to mis-fire, then back the air/fuel mixture screw "out" 1-1/2 - 2 turns a half turn at a time until the idle is smooth.

If you need a base setting to start with, then turn both air/fuel mixture screws "in" until they lightly seat, and then back them "out" 1-1/2 - 2 turns and then start and warm up the engine and then proceed to adjust the air/fuel mixture as described above.
