2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I recently took my 2005 trailblazer to a dealership for pricing towards another vehicle. The question arose concerning the scheduled maintenance of the timing chain and if I had it done. I was not aware that a timing chain had to be replaced unless there were problems with performance related to the timing chain. Is this a scheduled replacement at 50,000 Miles?
my truck never got "hot"...I just saw water pouring out of it and replaced it. This morning, I get in it. It starts up fine and I get about 1/4 mile and a big check engine light with a downward arrow comes on and the vehicle loses power. Will not go over 10 miles an hour. Went back home and cleaned the electronic throttle control, it was very dirty but still the light is still on and the truck will not go over 20 miles per hour so I guess it helped a little...any ideas??? I can push the pedal to the floor and nothing happens, it just won't go over 20 miles per hour.
This morning on my way to work in ICY conditions...I slid off of the road into a ditch. I was on a rural road so I just put the truck in "D" and gunned my truck and got myself out of the ditch. After driving about 3-4 more miles, I noticed that my temp gauge was going up and it went all the way to HOT. I pulled in a gas station and let it sit for a few. I went inside and bought 50/50 Antifreeze and as fast as I was pouring it in, it was running out from near the bottom of the motor. It was definitely not a hose or didn't seem to be and definitely not the radiator. The Truck has 220K miles on it so I drive it soft but I wonder if i did something when I gunned it this morning to get out of the ditch. ANY help would be appreciated.
Is there wheel bearings in the rear wheels
It's sound almost like when a wheel bearing assembly is going out but when you cut it deep either way it still makes the noise. Any ideas? Also have code saying sensor is bad for ABS on the right side,plus light is on in dash for ABS. Is it possible that wheel bearing could be bad or possibly both front wheel bearings since noise doesn't subside no matter which direction you cut it? I've also heard possible differential going out. Any info is greatly appreciated.
when operating power windows the elec gauge goes below 14
