#17961 of 18329 2006 Rainier, Envoy, Trailblazer ...
Oct 12, 2006 (9:54 pm)
Are 4.2L 6cyl. engines identical on these SUV's? I'm looking for performance parts for my 2006 Rainier (TB spacer and a K&N Fipk)and nothing comes up when i put the Buick Rainier as the make and model (on different websites). When i put the Envoy and TrailBlazer in the make and model field a whole bunch of products come out. I really want the K&N Fipk model #773036KG. Could someone please let me know if the engine layout are the same. THANKS!

When you say "shudder" does that include something like a bumping in the vehicle? My 02 Trailblazer sounds like it's running over small bumps in the road on a take off. The dealership removed the drive shaft and greased the slip joints but that did absolutley nothing! What have your results been?

Hi, everyone. As you've probably noticed, we have been trying to refine the discussions into more narrowly focussed topics. Our objective is twofold. We want to make it easier for people seeking specific information about their vehicles to find it easily and without having to wade through hundreds or thousands of postings.
To those ends, we will be shutting down the general make/model discussions and work exclusively with specific issues. This requires us to populate the make/model subsections with relevant, interesting and timely topics. Rather than having the hosts simply create boilerplate topics for each make/model, we feel that you, the owner, the make/model enthusiast and the prospective buyer can best judge what those topics should be.
You can help by adding a discussion (it's easy!) or suggesting one here.
To add a discussion, click on the last link in the "You are here" line at the top of this page. That will take you to the topic page for this make/model. Review the list of topics and click on the "Add discussion" link when you've decided what topic you'd like to add. Follow the directions and you're done! Feel free to add more than one. Just avoid duplicating existing topics and try not to make it TOO specific!
Your help and continued participation in the Forums is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

As far as I know they're the same, but only for that year. Look at the 2006 parts only.

Mine gets the shakes too. But only after running it alcohol for awhile and then back to gas.
#17966 of 18329 Bar end Links and Clunking
Oct 19, 2006 (3:23 pm)
So my front end does the clunking thing now after 95,000 miles. I understand that typically it's the sway bar end links that are the culprit? I took mine off and inspected them and they move quite freely under hand pressure so I assume that replacements will be somewhat stiffer. Is this typically what needs replacing and if so should the rears be replaced as well?
Thanks in advance

Oct 19, 2006 (5:47 pm)
I am looking for results for leaking wind shield, and I happened onto your post. What I am about to tell you is the truth. I used to own a Grand National Buick, and was stock except for Koni shocks. I drove the car about a year and developed a pop in the wind shield (pass side) After through investigation, discovered ignition arc. The arc
"snap" is amplified once the hood is closed. This was over ten yr ago. I replaced wires and carefully routed the wires using new looms. Believe it or not! Regards, Tarl.

#17970 of 18329 heated and memory seats fuse
Oct 21, 2006 (8:11 am)
I have a 2004 Buick Rainier. The heated seats and memory seats functions have quite working. Do you know where the fuse is located in the fuse box under the driver back seat? I have located the fuse box but don't know which fuse to pull to see if it is bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
