1993 Chevrolet Blazer S-10 Tahoe 4.3 Vortec from North America
Its nice when its working, but we are very afraid of our daughter being in an accident
Fuel Emission Spider has had to be replaced.
The Valve has been replaced.
It ran rough until we replaced the EGR valve.
It will lose power steering and power brakes sometimes when driving. The engine won't kill, but the steering and brakes act like it does if the engine would kill.
Currently it will not start when least expected and when we try to start it, you have to wait 10-20 minutes before trying and it starts immediately.
Our 18 year old daughter drives this vehicle and these are very serious problems, especially the loss of power steering and brakes.
The rear lock on the hatch will not open, we cannot turn it to open the door and its permanently locked. We have not been able to get into the back because of this problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I had the same problem with the rear hatch, and I had to take the whole thing apart and replace the locking mechanism. The brakes on mine are now just starting to go on the front left.
Regarding your Chevy Blazer truck; did you ever find out why it was not starting, and then 20 minutes later starting for you? We are having the same problem with ours, the mechanics are stumped too! Please give feedback on this truck, we are desperate!!!
I have had a 1993 S-10 for many years and have worked on it myself. My truck is still running well at 533,000 miles (yeah, you read it right!!).
I think your problem is a throttle position sensor (AKA TPS). A bad TPS in this model will cause a low idle speed, which in turn will cause a "soft" brake pedal due to a loss of vacuum in the brake booster. This will make braking difficult, just like the brake shoes are bad. Also this issue will cause the engine to behave erratically with idle, and the vehicle may stall when coming to a stop.
