My 2005 trailblazer starts cold & when hot but when it gets halfway it cranks a lo about halfway down on temp gauge it cranks a long time & the gas mileage dropped a lot could

I know that you can't trust the Trailblazer instrument cluster at all. Our 2007 was the biggest mess, but it's the gauge clusters and not the sending units that are defective. There are Good Folks making a Living doing nothing more than rebuilding Trailblazer Instrument Clusters and you can google that. The only way to know for sure is to verify with other means. For example, For MPH on the speedometer simply drive an indicated 60 mph on any Interstate Hwy that has Mile markers and time how long in seconds it takes to get from one marker to the next. 60 seconds means the speedometer is perfect. A temperature gun can tell you if the temp gauge is working right or not. Is your mileage changing or are the gauges giving you bad info? My advice is start at the gauges because they will drive you nuts. I hope that helps you!
