Question about Chevrolet TrailBlazer

High rpm while driving

I have a 2006 chevy trailblazer with approx. 183 000 ams on it. It has been well maintained with regular oil changed and i just recently had the transmission fluid changed; I am the 2nd owner. It has been parked for about 4 months now because i noticed that when I drove it after lending it to my brother for a month it seemed to be revving high (well over 2000 - 2500) when I went over 100 kms/hr, which was not normal; cause it would barely reach 2000 rpms when I went 120 - 130 ams/hr before. There are no light indicators on the dash and I get monthly on-star diagnostics test on it, which indicate that everything is fine!!! Getting frustrated and hate to put it in the garage and pay money that I do not have for them to tell me there is nothing wrong it, when I know something is wrong. Also I have to drive it and break it even more; also it starts normal.......Please HELP

Usually sign of a gear issue. It revs high when the gear is too low for the task. Should idle around 1000 rpm.
Onstar wont see this. Check the gear box. The garage wont charge you to look. Try an authorised dealer

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.

I have a 2006 chevy trailblazer i change all the mounts inclunding the idol tentionor and its still vibrates and make niose when am in drive or reverse in park and neutal its fine but just when am in


If the harmonic balancer wobbles when the engine is running, it could cause a vibration. A typical balancer has a rubber seal between the balancer and the belt drive pulley. The rubber seal may have deteriorated.

While driving my chev 454 truck the oil pressure went to 0 psi


A leaking filter and oil pressure switch would cause the lack of oil pressure. Does the oil light work and does it go out now you have changed these parts. It only needs approx 8 psi to put the light out, the engine should run at approx 40 psi at 2000 rpm.

I have 101,000 miles on my Trailblazer and the last time I had an oil change they wanted to put in synthetic oil......nothing in the owners manual about doing this......should I change or keep using the...


its mostly personal preferance.. your trailblazer doesnt call for synthetic so if you dont want to spend the extra cash i would just get a decent brand 5w30 or 10w30

What kind of life expectancy can one expect to get on new gas engines these days[in kilometers]if properly maintained.Have just purchased an 09 Sierra pickup with the 4.8 liter.


Don't go over 5000 miles. The oil life monitor will say you have 50 % (Approx.) but if you use it to 100% you will be way over due for an oil change.

The system uses rpm and coolant temperature to calculate the oil life, so if you don't drive very far the system will not calculate it correctly.
