Question about 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer Ext
After driving my 2005 TrailBlazer in high winds, on the highway, something happened to the vehicle. The next morning, I drove the car about a half a mile and noticed it was making a terrible thumping noise when accelerating. It turns out the pulley that holds the fan is loose. I would like to know if it is safe to drive the vehicle 25 miles to the dealer to be fixed. Also, approximately how much money should I expect to pay for this repair?
No don't drive it...You need your waterpump replaced driving it could cause alot more damage than you want....Have it towed....

This is hard to say, not knowing whats wrong, it may be a bad waterpump or bad fan clutch,the fan clutch is the most common problem on these type of trucks,but could be the pump,to drive 25 miles i dont know,tell you what, open the hood with the engine off, grab the fan and try to spin it,if it binds up then its okay to drive, but if you grab it and move it back and fourth and theres alot of play then its a gamble but a would think it would be okay just keep an eye on the temp gauge, if it starts to overheat then shut it down and tow it the rest of the way,hope this helps,
