#491 of 660 Re: 2006 Trailblazer LS Gas Gauge Problem & Engine Whining [paulanthonydfw]

My 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS gas gauge read empty and the light came on right after I filled up and a few minutes later started bouncing back and forward. This put into a panic because I only had my Trailblazer a year what happen next lead me to call the dealership. My engine light came on and my 07 trailblazer sounded like it was idled up when I drove. I took it in for a diagnosis which they said it was the fuel sensor $539 and suggested I also replace the fuel module which pushed the repair up to $1001. I was floored and upset. This is my second trailblazer I previously on a 2005 which I turned in due to a recall. I will not buy another TrailBlazer. Although my suv has 47000 miles I do not believe I should be having problem with this particular part. After placing a complaint with the dealership and corporate recall office They refuse to offer any help as of today 5/7/2008.
#492 of 660 Front diff problems-no support from GMC
May 07, 2008 (10:40 pm)
Got an '03 Trailblazer EXT with front diff noise, took it to the dealer to have repaired.
After 2 weeks informed by dealer that no front diffs are available because American
Axle is on strike. Ask about availability of parts to rebuild diff told they are available,
had dealer remove diff from vehicle and ordered parts at my work--A Medium Duty GMC dealership. After most parts are bought and installed told ring gear and pinion are not available. Now I'm out lots of money, have a vehicle I cant put back together. and a Spat case that says we will try to find your parts. I will never park another GM product in my driveway. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE CONSUMER AFTER THE VEHICLE IS OFF OF THE LOT. THIS VEHICLE IS MY WIFES PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION, THE RESPONSE FROM GM IS TOTALLY UNSATISFACTORY!!!!

My '05 Tb had the same problem! i took it to the dealership and they told me it needed a fuel sending unit repair kit. $120 part and a total of $400 with labor... i took it to my mechanic and had it done for $175 including the part! My mechanic told me when he was calling around to get the part people were acting like he was crazy that there was no such thing as a sending unit repair kit... there is though. He had to order it from the dealership (GM) but i saved $$$ on labor. If anyone tells you there is no such thing they are way wrong!!! A new sending unit is $300-$400 so the repair kit is well worth it!!! Good luck!

I have an 05 Trailblazer and the engine light has been staying on. When I hook it up to a tester the code is 410, what does that mean and what needs to be fixed??

If there's not a maintenance/repair history for it I would stay away from it.

Hi Karen S...
Unless your mechanically inclined, I would certainly get some help from a friend, knowledgable in that make and model or have an inspection by a professional. There are just too many "if's" when purchasing a vehicle with 111,000 on it. Very hard to say how it was maintained, if it was, or even when the last time the oil was changed. I would seek local help on that one..... good luck....

#500 of 660 Loose front bumper cover
Jun 04, 2008 (5:02 am)
Last month, someone backed into my '02 TB, causing damage to front bumper cover & passenger headlight. I've gotten those repaired, however my bumper cover is noticeably looser on the passenger side than it is on the driver side. I was told that this is normal & all TB's are this way. I'm just trying to see if anyone else has had this problem, or noticed if their cover is loose before really pitching a fit at the body shop! Thanks for any help....
