    Thank you for the information, I really appreciate it. I tried to start the trailblazer after posting my problem ... now, I don't get anything. The lights work, radio works, and the speedometer needle freaks out for about 30 seconds, that's it.
    p.s. nice picture, i have a siberian.

It could be the fuel filter or a bad fuel pump, lets start with the simple and replace the fuel filter and if you go to Auto Zone you can lone out e fuel pressure gauge. Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve to make sure you have the right amount of fuel pressure, Auto Zone will have the step by step instruction for you check the fuel pressure to your trailblazer. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: does gas flow out of the fuel lines when changing

You should loose a little through the lines and the filter itself. When you replace the filter, turn your key on and wait about 6 seconds before cranking. This will allow the fuel pump to force fuel through the empty new filter. You will still experience a small delay when cranking until the air passes through the line.

2004 chevy trailblazer wont start

The code is throttle position sensor error,could be bad or just need reset.The other problem sounds like a bad ground,if you have a piece of wire close to the terminal wire size put it on the ground side and jump it to the block,or any metal surface while someone tries to start it,if that doesn't get it try smacking the starter with a screw driver nothing bigger than a ratchet to prevent damage also while someone else rolls it over,also instead of rolling it over all the way try just quick burst with the key let engine turn maybe once or twice and do this as quick as possible maybe five or ten times

2004 trailblazer problems

Check for OBD2 codes, primarily a code indicating PCM memory is corrupt. My Trailblazer at times wouldn't turn over and start. Nothing at the key. When you attempt to start the vehicle and you turn the key to the start position, the PCM sends a signal to the starter relay to start the engine. Youtube video showed a mechanic warming the PCM with a hair dryer, and it would start. Tried it on mine and it started fine. If it is the PCM, the remedy is PCM replacement. Got mine from about $100.00. They had to program the new PCM with the vehicle vin number. Once installed no more problems.

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start

This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.

2004 chrysler pacific will start sometimes but sometimes won't

I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????

The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

Won't start. New battery. Turns over but won't start.

These trucks are known for fuelpump problems. the first thing to check is to see if its got fuel pressure, try sparying starting fluid into throtlbody and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds, if it starts then you will know its a fuel problem, it will die out once the starting fluid is burnt up but at least it will tell you its a fuel problem and if it does start i would bet its the pump. good day.

My 2004 trailblazor will not start jus keeps Turning over I have replaced plugs an crank sensor still won't start!

Try leaning under the truck and hitting the gas tank with a basebal bat while someone else is tring to start it. My bet is that you need a fuel pump, if it starts when you hit the tank, have the pump replaced soon.
