Blazer ... 4/10/2010

1996 Chevrolet Blazer LS 6 Cyl 4.3L


Engine idle issues, gasoline smell.

I have rough warm idle and occasional stalling from idle, sometimes it takes a few seconds to turn over, as well as poor gas mileage (14-15 MPG average). I also smell gasoline after I shut it off and get out. Does anyone know what is wrong?

You may have a bad fuel regulater . or may be a leaking injector . The reg. is the cheapest .pull the hose off the end and if you have fuel in the hose , replace it . . If your injectors are in the outside of your intake , look for fuel leakes . sometimes you can fix them with an o-ring , but you may have to replace it . Good luck hope I've helped !
