    NJ Inspection

    I to live in NJ. Here is what I always do before the test. IF you think you need an air filter, change it. If you think you are burning some oil, change it too. Once those are done, run the tank down to almost empty, then fill with top tier / quality gas like 93 octaine and take it for...

    Change Spark Plugs 05 Trailblazer

    I bought Delphi coil packs as they came recommended from two garages. Yeah a bit pricey but I like to have the peace of mind. Plus I am getting too old to want to change anything in a parking lot in bad weather. Oh .. when i did the plugs and packs, I also changed the air filter and the...

    Change Spark Plugs 05 Trailblazer

    at 200k on the odometer and had a coil pack fail just before the replacement, I figured to be better safe than sorry. Especially since I dive 80 miles a day just for work. and most of it is highway and I dont want to get stuck or have the truck run funny in the middle of no where.

    Change Spark Plugs 05 Trailblazer

    * Everyhing that Mooseman said is true. I changed my plugs on my 05 at about 200k. * the side of my head is stamped with the warning to do when cold ( like oer night cold that is) and it even stated the torque setting to tighten them * use even steady pressure on the ratchet to break them...

    odd idling oscillations

    I also have a 2005 with a about 225k I would change the coil packs, clean the throttle body and make sure the air filter is not too dirty. To start at least.

    odd idling oscillations

    What year, engine and mileage do you have? Have you cleaned the throttle body? Replaced coil packs or are they original? Knowing some history would help as some issues could have various causes.

    How to Change Oil on TB/Envoy Video Tutorial

    Good Job. Sounds like you had a family member coaching you as you did it. Always a good way to learn. Keep in mind some other points. I usually remove 3 of the bolts to the skip plate to swing it out of the way. you did not mention about coating the new filter gasket with fresh oil...

    I really need some advice before I blow up this truck😤

    The OIL pressure could also be a bad pressure switch which is located just above where the Oil filter goes. Your TB might need some TLC and fluid changes but if taken care of right, it will be a good ride. Mine is a 2005 with over 220K miles on the original Engine, trans and transfer case.

    Trans fluid color ?

    My mistake .. I meant in the 6 years I have had the truck, this was like the third trans fluid change I have done on it ... once soon after I got it .. then about 60k miles after that and then back on 2/26 of this year

    Trans fluid color ?

    Thanks for getting back to me. Some history .. I bought the truck 6 years ago with about 85k miles on it. That weekend I changed what fluids i could and had a shop change the rest. Kept up in all scheduled changes and maybe even a few before needed. Now have 220k miles and it runs...

    Trans fluid color ?

    Wanted to check with the brain trust here. Had a trans service / fluid change on 2/26 .. so about a week and half ago and about 500-600 miles mostly highway. No noises or issues with trans shifting or power .. but just for heck of it, i check the fluid today after getting home from work...

    TB LT headlight lenses ?

    Hope this is the right place for this as I have searched but can find a related thread. I keep hearing there are differences with the TB LT headlights vs others. I have an 05 LT and thinking on replacing the lenses. But what exactly is the difference between LT and non LT lenses? Does...

    Can I get more power from my 4.2?

    I always thought the manual specs were for flat roads to slight inclines and not up steep mountains for extended lengths. I agree with everyone that you could have a blockage. If it where me and I had my temps that high for that long, I would replace the Transmission, transfere case fluids...

    Can tires have different brands?

    From what I was taught, Spinning the wheel bearing by hand does not mean it is good since it is not under load at speed.
