1998 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 16000 miles

My Blazer is hard to start (can smell fuel when trying to start) and doesn't have much pickup when accelerating. I have been told it need to have the fuel pressure regulator replaced and this is very expensive. Is this correct and how do I know what it should cost?

Do you
have the same problem?

May want to start with replacing the fuel filter first. clogged fuel filter could cause these symptoms. if filter is clean then a bad fuel pressure regulator could definitely cause these same symptoms. estimate is below for having your vehicle's fuel regulator replaced.
