    Hi I have a 90' fullsize blazer tbi
    every once in a while the motor will cut out when parked at idle. like it shorts out for a second

    whats really weird though is when I'm up in the mountains
    the problem is way worse. It will short out a lot more when I'm sitting there,
    but it wont do it when I give it gas.

    the motor wont die just shorts out and makes a clicking sound
    do you guys have any idea where I should start looking

    thanks blitz

    no, it seems to idle normal accept for when it cuts out
    but when I get in high elevation it does seem to run worse

    I wonder if the clicking is a relay cutting of and then back on. A loose ground could cause it.
