SOURCE: engine cranks but won't start

I firstly would check relay. You can use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the relay. If you get a reading, it is good, If not it is bad. Than disconnect fuel pump wire harness and do the same.

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.

I have a hard time starting my 1996 blazer the first time of the day. After that it starts easier if it doesnt sit very long

either your fuel pressure regulator is bleeding back
or your fuel pump is bleeding back.
easy fix is to cycle the key a few times that why the fuel pressure builds up and then cycle the key the whole way through to crank up your car.
