Check engine light came on. Mechanic's diagnostic was valve #1 had to be replaced. Had it replaced but check engine still came on, now i find out that the whole cylinder head has to be replaced. -
Actually is in the shop now. The check engine lite kept illuminating. Was still under 30 day warranty thank god for that.the dealer replaced two coil packs and the thermostat also pulled the pcm and froze it in the freezer overnite. Still had some sort of misfire. So they pulled the head and are having it sent to a machinist to check for worpped issues. Or to replace it.wish i had never purchased this trailblazer. -
