SOURCE: purge solenoid location
which vehicle are you actually looking for the purge solenoid on? you have 2 vehicles listed in your question. i'll answer both, lol
the locations are described as if you are looking at the engine from the front of the car with hood open.
on the blazer:
it is located on the left side of the intake manifold just under and behind the throttlebody. it is a canister looking device.
on the silverado:
it is located on the intake manifold on the left side in about the same spot as the blazer. providing the silverado has the 5.3 or 5.7 liter engine. if it also has the 4.3 then obviously it will be the same.
hope this helps!

The purge control is to allow the engine to **** gas vapors out of the charcoal canister that vents the gas tank. It will be in the engine compartment, and you should be able to see the canister as a cylinder about 4 inches in diameter and maybe 8 inches high. Follow the tubing to a valve that goes to the intake manifold. The valve should shut off at idle, but open at higher speeds. There is also a diagram in the engine compartment that shows where it is.

SOURCE: diagram for where the canister
3.8 liter - remove the engine cover. As your standing in front of the vehicle it will be located on the passenger side of the engine inbetween the intake plenum and the valve cover. It will have three wires going to it and to vacuum hoses.
3.4 liter - it will be either mounted to the intake plenum in between the throttle body and the EGR valve. It could also be mounted to the coil/module bracket on the backside of the motor in betweent the motor and the firewall. I think its new enough that it should be in the first location I described.
Also on the under side of the hood (if its the original hood) there should be a sticker with a vacuum diagram and the basic location of that solenoid. The sticker could also be mounted on the upper radiator support or the strut tower on the passenger side.
