Re: changed belt on 02 trailblazer now it won't start
Belt turns alternator, alternator charges battery.(no belt, no charging) Charge battery with a charger. Though it may start with a jump, the alt is designed to maintain the state of charge in the battery, not to fully charge it . Therefore jumping puts too much demand on alt and can damage it. or will shorten battery life considerably.

no your timming belt broke!!! now if you have a interference engine you will need a new car!!!
the only way to know is if you search your year make and engine size of your car..
you better hope its a non interference engine .. than just change the belt.. good luck. this is a basic timming belt photo .
I had a similar problem. It was my waterpump. I got lucky and was close to dealersip, so no major damage. Before it failed (about three months before) I noticed the decline in acceleration, dealership missed diagnosing the problem twice. They finally figured it out, when it failed and started clunking in the truck. Was an expensive fix but not as bad as destroying the motor.
Get the water pump checked asap. they changed an air line valve connector thing first which did not fix the problem.
Also, I had a fan belt changed just before the water pump failed. The new fan belt put too much pressure on the failing water pump, causing it to crash and burn about one week after the belt change.
The best place to go and get one is the Salvage Yard, it's will cost you $25,00 if you pull it off the scrap trailblazer. Or you can have them pull one out for you but will cost more, Good luck and hope this helps.
