Question about 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer

1 Answer

Brakes I have a 06 trailblazer, a couple of days ago starting smelling like brakes burning like when you stop a big truck and lock up the brakes and they smoke real bad, that what it smells like. We checked everything out and nothing is in there or around the brake area, tires are fine lines are good. Checked brake fluid and its full, everything works fine. No lights come on on the dash. What could it be?

    Thanks but we already did that too, everything turns just fine and nothing is out of the ordinary. Brake pads are in good shape and callipers are working good.

Try to jack up the wheels and turn them to see if there is no seized brakes/calipers. Let us know how you get on.

No heat after burnt smell


Either your Fan motor is faulty or the fan control resister assembly is burnt out, either of those will cause the smell.

You will need to find out which speed sensor has gone bad. Only way to know it to hook it up to a scan tool. The burning smell is possibly a caliper sticking as these vehicles are bad about them sticking after brake pad replacement.

Clicking/knocking sound and feel when shifting & smell


first check the clutch hydrolic fluid. If it's low or leaking, it may not disengage the clutch completely causing the disk to drag (and smell) The knocking sounds like you're loosing the thowout bearing and/or possibly the disk (there are cushion springs that may have come out of place). Take it to a transmission shop that does free diagnosis. anything other than fluid-related is going to be pricey.
