2004 chevy trailblazer power loss, high rpms, low ppms

Check the timing chain. Some times the chain will shift with worn teeth and get out of synch. This will cause the engine to lose power and back fire. Sometimes with a flame through the carb. I did that one once. Easy fix if it is the problem.

My nissan shakes alot when it idles while in park, and when it drives I step on the gas pedal and it feels like it wants to turn off i check spark plugs and they look good it has loss of power

may be its not your sparkplugs, but may be your coil pack usually gives fire to your wires which feeds spark plugs that could be why your losing power, good luck

Loss of power uphills and shifting improperly.

It sounds very much like your clutch is slipping. If the engine revs continue to rise when in gear and the car does not increase it's speed accordingly then if it is a manual car then you need a new clutch.

Head lights dimming and losing power while driving

Next time this happens, pull over and unscrew the gas cap. The vent may be clogged.

Otherwise, your catalytic converter may be failing. It can also clog and hinder engine exhaust.

Good luck !

Check your intake and exhaust modules. I have a 1987 D21 and had the same problem (if I understand your post). I replaced the modules located behind the driver side headlights and it fixed the problem. Good luck! I hope this helps.
