a couple of things. 1: does it drive good doesnt stumble when driving if not the carby might be flooding..... 2: if it runs great and only dies when the brakes are applied, does it idle rough then die, it might be the brake booster.

maybe your tcc solenoid, which is in the transmission. my 84 montecarlo did that with a new carb

You can get brakes from any automotive supply store or the dealership.

Brakes can be done at almost any type of repair shop, however I would usually go to one that is recommended for that particular service or the dealership.

I would say a vacumn leak. Check hoses, measure vacumn with running at idle and at idle when brakes applied. This assumes you have power brakes and it idles well without the brakes applied. Please make sure that the clutch is working properly... Does your clutch work properly?

I would suspect a leaking brake booster. When you apply the brakes, the extra vacuum needed, causes the engine to stall. Check the brake booster vacuum line and the booster itself. You also might want to replace all vacuum lines if the car is over 10 years old.

How often should brakes be changed?

If you're talking front ones, and they were installed properly and the system doesn't develop other problems to cause premature wear, and also depending if you're talking city or highway driving, not to mention what quality of parts were installed, I would expect about 35,000. If you have rear drum brakes and you keep them adjusted every 12,000 miles your fronts may last longer. If we are talking rear shoes I would expect 75,000 miles, rear disc brakes about 50,000 miles

Why would a '95 Chevy Blazer need gas added to carburetor if new fuel pump fuel injectors were installed?

Not to be a smart alec, however you shouldn't have a carburetor on your truck. It would be a throttle body. If it is a throttle body injection, then I would suspect that your fuel filter is plugged. Change that, and you should be fine. There is one other possibility, you may also have a bad pressure regulator.
