While going down highway getting hot and losing power.


Loss of power is likely caused by overheat condition. Check your coolant level, thermostat operation(both upper and lower radiator hoses should feel hot), fan motor/clutch operation and radiator cap for proper pressure retention. Also, pressure test cooling system if coolant is leaking out.

If you have a manifold gasket leak on a '07 trailblazer ss would it make the vehicle lose power when driving down the highway


A manifold gasket leak will cause a power loss everywhere you drive, although a hot engine may lose more power than a cold one. You can check you spark plug color. A manifold leak makes a lean mixture so the plug should show the typical white-ish deposits.

Engine heat loss power


Like...needle...haystack.
The second time it happened, did you also have the AC turned on? If so, maybe the AC compressor warmed up and seized up. But I think you would have heard your belt squealing, if that was the case.
If it only happens when the AC is on, at least you have a good indication of what to check or have investigated. Good luck.

I have a 1991 Cheverlot S-10 pickup that starts up fine, and dies while driving a little while and most specifically when the lights are turned off. Then you have to wait a couple of hours and it will...

Brake pedal went out on me going about 65 on the highway, was able to pump enough to get it under control. Brake company said brakes and diaphragn were fine, needed new master cylinder. Brakes went out...


it sounds like you've got an issue with the engine vacume line going to the booster. there's an in line one way check valve that keeps vacume in the booster in case of a loss of vacume, like if your truck stalled while driving. but there should always be vacume with the engine running. so check the vacume line going to the brake booster for kinks obstructions, and leaks.

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 !
