#72 of 74 2008 TB stalls while driving
May 30, 2012 (5:15 pm)
I own a 2008 TB LT it only has 42,227 miles on it and I have not had any problems with it until two weeks ago. It starting stalling on me while I was driving it. At first it was mainly at lights and then it stalled on me while I was driving on the interstate going about 65 mph. Of course it is past the 3/30000 warranty, but I took to a dealership that used to be a GM dealership locally here in town. They had it for a couple of hours running diagnostic testing and it stalled on them while it was in the racks and they pulled a P0601 code which was to replace the ECM/PCM. They also told me that it would be covered under GM Factory warranty and to take it to a GM dealership since they are no longer one. I took the car back to where I bought it and they wouldn't take my word for it and ran their own diagnostic testing and they said that they did not get the same code they only said the stering angle sensor needs replaced and of course it is NOT under warranty. How can two different places get two different codes???
the the stering angle sensor cause the car to stall while I am driving it? Money is very tight and I don't want to pay for something if I don't need it.

Can someone/s please provide me with some feedback on solution besides go to the Dealer. I have a 2008 Chevy Trailblazer and just recently my idle engine light has came on. It comes and goes once I turn the engine off. It only comes on when I go around 30mph. When I go above that it runs smoothly. Then engine losses power and feels like it wants to shut off. I have over 90K miles. I have changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. I've never changed spark plugs so Im leaning towards that or the fuel filter.
ANY IDEAS, THANKS

Does your vehicle make a slight whinning noise when you first start it? We have a 2004 with the same mileage and had the same problem. It would stay running until you tried to give it gas but would not go nor had any power. Long story short, it was the Fan Clutch. This can be replaced very easily by youself, and you can save a few hundred bucks. I work on the road so had no choice but to go to dealer, but this is a common issue with this vehicle, and chevy needs to address this.
