Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS EXT and I love it. I have owned it for less then a year. About 2 weeks ago I had a full replacement done on my breaks including Calipers, Rotors and Pads. The breaks got pretty noisy before they were repaired. On top of the grinding noise, there was a irritating metal on metal sound. I had the full break replacement done but was unhappy to still hear that metal on metal sound. It was not a grinding sound. Its a metal in metal rubbing sound. Its is only really bad at higher speeds. Just after hitting 20 mph and after 30 mph. The brakes were replaced by my uncle who has been a mechanic for years and was always the one who ended up doing any repairs in the past. I have an EX boyfriend who is not a working mechanic but really should be. He has saved me in a lot of hard times. I had him go for a drive for me to listen to the sound. After he drove with me, he said that something was rubbing but needed to get under there to see what it is rubbing. When he was able to take the tires off, he said he could see any signs of rubbing. He suggested that since I had a complete Brake Replacement, that I should give it about a week for the new break parts to settle. It has now been 2 weeks and is driving me bonkers!! To me, with my break experience as a kids and riding the brakes till I had to pull the emergency brake to stop, which I no longer do, it sounds like the brake pads are some how possibly sticking to the rotor but that's what I think it sounds like. My EX suggested lubing the brakes which I know my uncle did when replacing the brakes but is it possible that they need more? Please help me get rid of this ugly noise that makes my TrailBlazer look horrible.

    Temp is staying at 210 and does rise while in use. we replaced thethermostat and radiator cover. any ideas. I just bought it used 2 weeks ago


    The I6 engine needs to be at 210 degrees, no less than that. The Temperature guage is just a guess, hook up a scanner and look at live data if you have one. Did you replace the coolant temperature sensor also? In 04', it's right above the thermostat you replaced. If you don't have a scanner----If the guage just rises a 1/16" of an inch to an 1/8" past 210, I wouldn't worry about it with your new thermostat in place.

    2006 Trailblazer low beam headlights out high beams work.


    Bulbs are like people - some last a long time, some croak early.

    Meanwhile the part they plug into can be cleaned out and restored if metal is still there.

    Service four wheel drive light is on, what does that mean?


    Your transmission/transfer case needs to be flushed and the fluid replaced along with any needed screens or filters that are recommended by GM.
    Your owners manual should have info on the manufacturers reccomendations.
