#234 of 535 95 blazer troubles
Jun 12, 2005 (8:47 pm)
I have a 1995 Chevy S-10 Blazer with a 4.3L V6 VORTEC. The SES light has come on and it is idling rough. Could it be my EGR valve that has gone out? I am also having trouble with my brakes. I have to literally stand on them to get the pedal to budge. My wife took it to a mechanic and they adjusted the idle, so now it is idling at 3000rpms but the brakes work. What do I have to do to adjust the idle back down? I am at a loss, any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi I just bought a 2002 Blazer and the morning after I brought it home.
I started it up and when I started to drive away I noticed a roaring in the engine & there was no pep in the truck. After the truck warms up everything is fine. The Dealer said that this was normal, Blazers do that....He also said that his 2004 trailBlazer does the same thing.
Now for my Question,,,,,, Is this Guy on the level with me or is this a known problem.

Is this car reliable? No - read the postings.
How is the gas mileage? Second Mortgage, I've recently heard that the larger SUV's are easier on fuel.
What's the fair market value? GM is practically giving them away. Buy new. That way if anything goes wrong you have the warranty to fall back on.
Is there any common problems I should look for? Please do your research before buying. This is not a cheap vehicle to fix.
How does it handle in the winter? Hmmm, in the snow... imagine a crazy carpet with wheels.

Well i Didn't see a answer either so I dropped mine off at the local transmission shop today.
They are charging me $325.00 just to pull it out and tell me from there what is wrong with it.
I'll keep you posted bud of what they found and how much it was to fix.

I have the roar too. I see no problem with it It seems to be coming from the air intake. After about a block or so, it mellows out. Dealers will tell you its normal... The fact is that if it did it on a new blazer, it would be in service and repaired or I'd sue the dealer! Something tells me that its the heat riser, but im not even sure the truck has one! And yes, there is no pep during this interval.

Hey,I have a 2000 chevrolet blazer and every morning when I get up to go to work my blazer does the same thing so yes it is normal and yes your dealer is on the right track...
I hope this helps,

when sitting over night and started the following morning, a white puff of smoke comes out of the exhaust. for the next fifteen minutes the engines roars when i accelerate .....(loss of power), the rpms stay normal but it feels like the transmission doesn't want to shift. drives fine other than that except when trying to merge into traffic. Is a problem with the tranny. or is something i'm overlooking
