Question: 1995 Blazer wont start/ Battery keeps draining

When I turn the key it clicks a lot before turning on. Once I push the gas it cuts off. I made sure it had gas, no difference. Had battery replaced with a brand new one. It started, i put it in drive and coasted out my parking lot. It turned off as soon as I hit the street and gave it a little gas. And now it wont kick over at all and the new batery is completely dead. A fuel pump has been ruled out. Also: when I turn the ignition there is a back fire, there's thick white smoke coming out the exhaust pipe and it had been sitting for over 6 months

I would check your coolant level. Make sure it's full. if it's low you mite hav a bad head gasket. On the battery make sure your connections are clean and the cables are good. It's common for the cables to get battery acid in them. they look ok but are not good.
