#73 of 74 2008 Chevy Trailblazer

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.
