#112 of 505 2004 Trailblazer EXT LT V8 tranny issues
Oct 28, 2005 (1:24 pm)
I have a 2004 Trailblazer EXT LT V8 model, and am having some issues with the transmission. Yesterday when I started up the car, it was reving higher than it should have, and it really didnt have much torque. On the highway I had problems getting enough power to pass people. It was towed yesterday by the chevy dealer to the dealership, and at the dealership the battery died, and the computer completely reset, any idea what is with that? And the dealership called and said they found a black box that when driving when u move it, the transmission goes either back to normal or goes to reving high, like the bands are slipping, and also they have no idea what it is. Our trailblazer only has 28000 miles on it. Any ideas about
A. The mysterious black box
B. The not enough power
C. The battery dying and the computer resetting
All I can say is thank god that its still under full warrenty.

#115 of 505 What other chevy models does the chevy blazer transmission cross reference
Nov 20, 2005 (11:45 pm)
I have a 95 chevy blazer s/10 model. The transmission is bad. I am living in Germany and am wondering if someone could help me cross reference the transmision. Is there another chevy vehicle that would use this same tranmission? It is a 95 Chevy Blazer S/10 model v/6 with an automatic transmission.
#116 of 505 Can U Prolong this Sun Shell component failure?
Nov 23, 2005 (9:21 am)
I think someone in a past post had asked this question, but I didn't see any direct answer in reviewing the posts. Is there any preventitive measures to help prolong or avoid this component failure? If you change the trans fluid does the "better lubrication" of new fluid help or no? I am not familiar with this part, what exactly does it do/function? My wife told me a few days ago that she was going up a hill and she thought she was pressing the gas a good amount but "it wasn't going anywhere...like it lost power". Happened twice. It hasn't reoccurred recently to my knowledge and when I drive the truck I have not experienced any slippage or high rpm spurts, but I suspect the problem could be starting...has 50K on it. The vehicle is leased for 60k and wondering if it will hold out till then or anything helpful I can do (like new fluid) until return time.

Great Question! I will be anxious to hear any responses too. I still have the shudder & bump when at a stop light when the car is cold. I have almost 51,000 miles on my 2002 Envoy in 4 yrs and 4 months. Other than this issue, which is intermittant, still love the vehicle.
#118 of 505 2002 Envoy will not shift out of 2WD
Nov 24, 2005 (10:59 am)
When I tried to use AWD nothing happened. Simultaneously, the "Check AWD" warning lite came on. On Star couldn't provide any insight. I have not experienced any trans issues prior to this occurance. After reading several postings I have not noticed any that mention a failure to shift into AWD (or 4WD). Any insights as to what I might be in for when it gets into the shop?
#119 of 505 2003 Trailblazer Rolls Down Driveway While in Park
Nov 27, 2005 (12:53 am)
I have a 2003 Trailblazer EXT that nearly ran me over yesterday when it began rolling backwards down my driveway while in park. I was able to open the front door and turn the steering wheel to avoid a collision with another vehicle across the street. I haven't a clue why it rolled or why I was able to steer the truck. I thought the steering wheel should have locked. Anyone else out there ever hear of that before...thanx.

I am having a similar problem with my 2002 Envoy. Sometimes when I am in 2WD, it will shift into neutral without me shifting. I have to pull over and either turn the car off and restart or put the car into 4HI. I have an appt at the dealership next week but my local mechanic says it might be one of the following- a problem with the transfer case motor, a problem with the switch on the dash, or the computer may need to be reprogramed. I do a lot of highway driving and I have to drive in 4HI to ensure nothing shifts while I am driving.

My switch had a mind of its own some time back. Replaced the switch and no further problems.
