    It is just clicking, and not turning over. Started fine before the belt broke and was replaced. Coolant didn't overheat, and nothing sprayed anywhere..

    Have you considered charging the battery? Is the engine turning and not starting or is it not cranking??? Did coolant overheat? did it spray anywhere on sensors?

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.

Trailblazer camshaft sensor

You should not have changed perfectly good parts,
without any knowledge of the system your working on

You need to use professional tools to test the vehicle, to first
find a problem,then component test parts like you changed

Only parts that fail a test get replaced

Your out of knowledge,not ideas

Your living in the 1960's or 70's when you could afford the
parts & replace them in a wish & hope strategy & maybe fix
a problem,not today,have to know how to test a vehicle

2002 chevy trailblazer won't start after changing

A six cylinder Trailblazer does not use a timing belt. It has a timing chain.
Are you sure you did not cause a problem with the cam or crank sensor ?

Tiburon timing belt broke, replaced, won't start

Did you make sure you set cam & crank timing ? If the belt is off one tooth it will cause this. Recheck belt timing first.

You have a componant that is driven by the belt that is frozen solid and will not let the engine crank.Take the belt back of and turn all the pullys by hand to find the frozen one.

Loss of power on acceleration with my 2004 trailblazer


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.

Hope this helps you.

02 chevy trailblazer Tire Mount/Hoist

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.
