    Ok... for some reason my blazer has started idling rough. No apparent leaks and there doesnt seem to be any issue with power loss or stumbling or anything. Its not missing, I think its timed correctly (will check tomorrow)

    its just rough

    I am thinking vacuum leak also... when I stomp on the pedal it stumbles and I hear a whistle then it goes like a striped ass ape...

    So... anyone want to help me track down a leak?

    Ryan,

    Do you have a Q-Jet carb? Check the throttle plate shafts for wear, because I had that problem before. Spray some carb clean around the base plate gasket as well. Carb clean works great for finding vacuum leaks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
