Try adding a can of Seafoam to your engine oil crank case and then give it an oil change and oil filter after 150 miles. The Seafoam should clean up any sludge in your engine and the oil journals through your internal engine parts.
Thank you for using fixya and just follow the instructions on the car. best to use two cans. one for the engine oil it self and the other for the fuel system and intake system.

Freeing it isnt going to be the problem. I'm assuming you have a engine sludge issue. Oil should never clog anything. If it does you most likely already damaged something. Unless there is something your not telling us here. Poor Maintenance destroys engines everyday. ??. Even if you dislodge it , it will stll be in there.. You could try some engine treatment but youl have to run the engine to get it to work. Only other option is compressed air.

Two possibilities, poor electrical connection at the cam position actuator sensor (CPAS) connector or a clogged CPAS. Check connector first for oil residue. The CPAS itself is prone to clog if the oil is not changed at the proper intervals. Unfortunately, the CPAS is a little difficult to remove since access to one of its bolts requires the removal of the power steering pump.

2004 chevy trailblazer changed the fuel pump, started fine, but as soon as he stepped on the gas, it died again, and won't start. Seems like the fuel pump isn't even coming on! I am so sick of this...


It sounds like you have a clogged fuel filter. You may have also gotten a bad fuel pump. Sometimes they will come from the factory like that. They do not even check them before they send them out.

Engine light came on, code po410 came up.


This has to do with the secondary air pump system, this system is used at cold start-up and involves three components; air pump, solenoid valve and a relay. Many times the valve becomes stuck or clogged, the relay has also been known to fail.

Low oil preasure stop engine message displayed on a chevy trailblazer LT 2004. has anyone encounter this problem? solution?


I havent encountered it. However, I highly recommend you do not drive this car. Low oil pressure can do permanent damage to the engine. It sounds like your oil pump is bad. However, if debris managed to get inside your engine it could have damaged the piston walls causing this to happen as well.

I hate to say it, but unless you are a very skilled mec hanic this is a job for the dealership.
