#2708 of 3676 Noise, Clanking From Rear End...Eikkk
Oct 16, 2006 (4:38 pm)
I have a 2003 TrailBlazer and in the last 4 months I have noticed a Clanking noise that has developed from the bottom rear chasis area. I first thought it could have been a loose spare tire in the under chasis, but that isn't it. I took it into a Chevy dealership today, they say it's the rear Stablelizer suspension bar that is going out and both need to be replace at $310.
Any one have any answers or suggestions, what it could be?
I want to like this car but I have already had other unrelated problems with this Blazer and I am getting frustrated.
#2709 of 3676 98 Blazer stutters/hesitates
Oct 17, 2006 (7:35 am)
My 98 blazer has had this hesitation for months. Its been put on diagnostic machines at 2 different garages. Both times I was told it needed new plugs/wires and cap/rotor..Both times these were replaced. The "service engine" light remains on and the stutter returns after just a couple of weeks. Anyone have any solutions or ideas. Im completely stumped.

I have a 93cpi vort it runs fine but if I shut it off it will not start for about 45 min. It has been slowly getting worse over the past 5 months.From other forums it sounds like it could be the (cpi unit,Fuel presser regulator) Has anyone had this problem and did doing work to the cpi fix the problem.Also if it is the presser reg is it worth fixing the whole cpi kit fuel lines ect.Any help on this would be awesome!!!!
#2711 of 3676 94 JIMMY 4WD noise (should I purchase?)
Oct 17, 2006 (5:52 pm)
I am in the market for a well-used GMC JIMMY. I found one with 220,000 miles on it and the owner is willing to sell it for $400.00. The truck was a one owner. I drove it and engaged the 4WD on wet pavement. It engaged, but seemed to vibrate and resist, however it did drive and I was going about 30 mph. The owner said that it was just the fact that the 4WD was engaged when there wasn't snow on the ground. He explained that all the tires are "fighting" for ground.
My question is, should I be concerned with the vibration?
Thanks for the reply!

If the rubber bushings are bad just buy them and replace them - this is the larger inline six Trailblazer and this forum is S-10 type.

What is the code that sets the SES light? If a P0300 random cylinder misfire and the light sometimes flashes as you drive post back - several other things usually cause it.

Do it all at the same time and this assumes the fuel pressure from the pump is good.

Be concerned with why you want a 94 Blazer with 220k miles!!
That is a money pit - remember this later and you better be a good mechanic! The whole drivetrain is probably pretty loose and the bearings, CV axles, diff, transfer etc may have lots of wear so hard to say. But if you drive and you go slowly straight ahead it should not hop until you turn and then the front vs rear may hop alittle. Vibration could be many things and most probably is on this.
