Question about 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer Ext

1 Answer

Engine is making hissing sound.

My 2005 Trailblazer has been making a "hissing" sound -somewhat similiar to the sound the power steering makes when it's low on fluid but I don't think **** he power steering since it only sounds like that when I accelerate. I put the car on park(with the engine running) and pressed the accelerator without touching the steering wheel and it still made the noise.

Can anyone please offer some insight? -thanks

My 2005 Pontiac makes a hissing noise when I turn the wheel all the way to the left or right what could cause this problem

It could be air in the power steering system. Check the power steering reservoir to ensure it is properly serviced. If it is, check for any evidence of leaking under the car - power steering fluid is usually either clear or reddish color.
If you have to add fluid to get the reservoir back up to the correct level, it will take a little while to get air out of the system, so the hissing may continue for a period of time.

My 2005 Trailblazer will not start.. It was working 4 hrs earlier except would shake when I came to a complete stop.. Now, when I try to start it, there is no power.. Also there is an egg smell coming from...

need to check for engine codes. sounds as if the exhaust cam actuator is stuck open creating an internal vacuum leak. the actuator is on the right side of the engine behind the power steering pump on a 4.2 liter engine.

check the idler/tensioner pully's and the alternator pully, there is a common problem with one of these 3 going bad, usually an idler pully the best way to check is to get a mechanics stethescope and touch the end to the bolt on the idler pully's you will notice a very distinct sound difference from a smooth pully and one with bad bearings. gm tech here, seen many of these

Power Steering Issues

Check Power-steering Fluid level and make sure that fluid is good first. If Fluid is good and when you accelerate the vehicle its fine then, you need a POWER STEERING PUMP. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
