Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

My 1997 blazer will not pick up speed when you push on the gas

It feels like it is shifting but I can only get it up to about between 20 and 30 mph. It makes kinda like a loud noise like it is maybe sucking air. I'm bad at explaining it.

SOURCE: S 10 1997 Chevy Blazer brake locking up

Common cause is the drums and brake shoes need to be replaced. When there no longer within the the specification for the brakes to work properly, the self adjusters will over adjust the brake shoes and you'll have the feeling of the rear drum brakes lock up as the shoes will bind up along the drums. Replace both Shoes and Drums and this can be done on your own will common tools and a simple brake spring tool that you can pick up at Auto Zone or Parts Source and both can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the rear brake system. Good luck and be safe.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy Astro Van accelerates without pushing on gas peddal

You are right to be concerned about this behavior since it can definitely increase your stopping distance.
Either your cable has eaten its way into the inner tubing and is hanging up, or the mechanics at the throttlebody needs some lubrication.
With no engine running, have someone inside to press on the accelerator while you watch for movement of the linkage under the hood. Once you have located it, operate it by hand to see how it feels. If the linkage does not return to the stops provided, then use a heavy-duty penetrating oil to soak the moving parts. If it still hangs, then the cable needs replacement.
With the engine running, tranny in Park and the parking brake on, after you have lubed the visible linkage, have some one inside press on the gas and watch the linkage to see if it now returns to the mechanical stop. Carefully move it by hand to see if it is truly at the limits of its travel where it should be at an idle.

SOURCE: Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.

One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.

SOURCE: whining noise

Can you make the noise happen with your foot on the brake, trans in gear, and a little throttle? And does it go away in park & neutral? If yes to both questions you probably have a faulty thrust bearing in the torque convertor. If no to both questions you like have a faulty "input drum to pump cover thrust bearing." Either way the problem must be repaired ASAP or when the bearing fails it will be at the worst possible time, like in the middle of an intersection with a firetruck bearing down on you.

Transmission making loud grinding/sucking sound, doesn't go when in drive or reverse


Is it an automatic John? When was the last time you checked the level of your ATF (automatic transmission fluid)?

There are many different types, so make sure you get the right one.

If it is a manual shift, check the gearbox oil level. If that is OK, you need a transmission specialist. Look in Yellow Pages.

it could be center bearing, if its going bad it can also cause a vibration, make sure you have sufficient fluid in the diff as well, you can also get a noise and vibration from collapsed motor or trans mounts

Real loud knocking noise when i turn or put it in reverse and hard to get it to go past 30 mph


Go with a completely damaged & blocked exhaust converter

Air In --Air Out Yours doesn't go out & the trans gets confused
& can't use the shift strategy it was born with

That is the 30 mph or a gas filter really clogged,not real likely

What is with the noises?

Turning & just sitting still?

What was the trans shop diagnoses,was it test driven
& did you go alone,have to do that

Your car --so your part of the solution,be proactive

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

Loud noise in back end


lift the car up and check the wheel bearings by turning the wheels manually. Listen for any clicking noises. Move the wheel back and forth pulling it toward you. There is not supposed to be any movement or noise on the wheel if the bearings are good. if you do see any movement or hear any noises , replace the wheel bearings

Sounds like a burst of Air when changing gears???? and Wurrrrrrr when accelerating???


first thing you need to do rule out vacuum to shifting module make sure there is no leaks you usually can detect by a hissing sound or high pitch whistle check your shifting module on your transmission providing transmission screen and filter has been maintained as for the second part gm powersteering pumps have a tendency to whir if a new belt has been installed until it breaks in
