2004 chevy trailblazer 73,000 miles

On the way home tonight, my vehicle lost power, service engine soon light was flashing, vehicle decreasing power, lost oil pressure, turn engine off was the message. We pulled over and shut the vehicle off, it did not turn back on after sitting for a while, had vehicle towed home. Any ideas what this could be?

    I have had this same issue, It happened several times, but always steadied, I noticed that all lights would dim and get brighter than normal and this was my driving lights as well, then noticed lights and meters on dash going crazy. I have also blown some lights due to this issue. Now it seems to be messing with the computer or the running of the engine as now it misses alot, and vibrates.

The first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more

We had the same problem on our 2003 and it was the catalytic converter.

It sounds to me like you ran out of gas.

2003 chevy trailblazer service engine soon light


If the service engine soon light is flashing, it means the computer has detected an engine misfire with the potential of catalytic convertor failure. Don't just tune it up. Bring it somewhere they can read the trouble code. Sometimes it will designate which cylinder is having the problem.

Check Engine light on and flashing, engine running rough


When the Check Engine light flashes it means there is a significant emissions problem detected and it needs to be fixed very soon. Continuing to drive with this condition will destroy the catalytic converter. You may have gotten debris in one or more of the injectors when the gas got low.
The first thing to do is get the codes read and find out what the computer is reporting bad.

You need to get the fault codes read to determine where the problem is that set the SES light. Autozone will scan your car at no charge. At some point you will need to get a mechanic involved to further diagnose the codes.

What is the recommended service for 2004 chevy


Service your cooling system every 5 years or 150,000 miles. The GM Dex Cool has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles which ever comes first. Replace the thermostat also and buy the fail safe thermostat, it cost a bit more but worth it.

Service the engine (spark plugs and wire) every 100,000 miles or till engine management prompt attention. (service engine light DTC code)

Service the transmission every 3 years or 60,000 miles, replace the transmission oil and filter. Transfer case fluid and differential fluid.

Service the engine oil and filter every 6 months or 3,000 miles. Lube Chassis

Service the air filter and cabin air filter, wiper blades every 15,000 miles or once a year.
