Sounds like wrong firing order of the cylinders. If you have the 4 cylinder engine the firing order is 1-3-4-2. Number 1 is the end of the engine the belts are on

SOURCE: the sedons sat for two weeks while I was away. On

Replace the intermediate shaft. See TSB (KT2008101402). It connects the steering to the rack and the u-joint binds.

this is very common with these cars the shift shaft goes through the aluminum case below the neutral safety switch then is exposed 3 inches befofre it goes into the transmission to shift the case is supposed to be a guide this corrodes you need to use a silicone based lubricant to free it up. Have some one spray under the switch while you hold the brake (key on engine off) and move the shifter from park to first approximately 2 min or thirty times

SOURCE: car want pulls hills or any inclines vey well 2005

P0304 code is a cylinder 4 misfire. If the plugs or wires are bad it will cause a decrease in power. I suggest changing the plugs and wires and see if that helps.

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.

2002 trailblazer lack of engine power light


I am willing to bet a lot that there is a bad ground from the battery to the chassis of the vehicle. In addition to the ground wire that goes to the engine block, there should be another wire from the battery negative terminal to the sheet metal of the car. Bet is it corroded or loose. If you cannot find this wire it might be because the MFG ran a wire from the engine to the sheet metal somewhere around the back of the engine. You can run another wire frokm the Batt- term to the sheet metal. Maybe put one terminal under some accessory that screws to the sheet metal.

Good luck
