2004 Chevy trailblazer loss of drivetrain power

Okay, please describe the problem more fully (need engine type, miles, description of power loss, etc); in the meantime, here are some common power-robbers:

Bad O2 sensors. Just changed mine on my 03 5.3 LS-motor Sierra, and power went from mundane pickup truck with 145,000-mi to high thrust similar to my \'11 Camaro SS/RS. Yes, it makes that big a difference. About $25-50 each, and most modern V6 or V8 vehicles have 4.

Dirty throttle body. Easy enough to clean your self, but you will need the environmentally-NOT-friendly cleaner (about $6 or less per can at parts stores--get 2 cans). LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. Same effect on power as O2 sensors. Usually about $100 or less for Chevy vehicles.

Dirty or bad Mass Air Flow sensor. Clean with same stuff as for throttle body. Similar effect on power. LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. If bad, this won\'t help.

Dirty fuel injectors. Use high-quality injector cleaner (usually about $6 or less per bottle at parts stores), or bite the bullet and let the dealer do the professional injector service, usually <$150 at a Chevy dealer. Any dealer work on Chevrolet vehicles, it makes sense to have the Chevy dealer and not the Ford or Billy Bob\'s Tobaccy Chaw garage do it. Many, many of us mechanics are qualified and trained, but many, many are not.

Bad gas. This is a deal-killer, and it is even worse than you know, because bad gas--even one time--usually kills the in-tank fuel pump. Bad gas is gasoline that has somehow gotten water in it. By the way, NO DEALER EVER SELLS "WATERED-DOWN" GAS, no matter what you have heard all your life, even if your Daddy told you that. The reason is simple chemistry and economics: gas and water do not mix, water does not burn, and water causes immediate spitting, missing, bucking, farting, and twitching, kills fuel pumps and catalytic converters and fouls plugs and O2 sensors, and costs hundreds to repair. Water does accidentally end up in underground fuel tanks, however, and usually as the result of the fuel deliverer not sealing the caps after a delivery, followed by a rain or hose activity in the station lot. Water is not the only definition of \'bad gas\'--I recently repaired a vehicle that the fuel deliverer had accidentally poisoned with diesel fuel--he either forgot to clear his hose after filling the underground diesel tank, or just put diesel in the gas tank, but this car\'s tank was FULL of diesel after fueling from an island that doesn\'t even have a diesel pump on it--I checked the station myself. Contaminated fuel can cost you thousands of dollars, so always buy gas at a reputable, name-brand station, and smell the nozzle before you add fuel. You won\'t catch water this way, but you will catch diesel.

Stopped-up or internally-fractured catalytic converters. This one is REALLY expensive, and it DOES happen. Converters don\'t last forever, and they can be killed by you or by your fuel. Bad gas or even misfiring kills modern catalytic converters right now--like yesterday-fast--and there is no fix but replacement, usually costs about $300-2900 (that\'s right) to repair, depending on vehicle, catalytic converter type and quantity. Buying gas for even 10 cents a gallon cheaper really doesn\'t save you squat...the average tanks hold something less than 20 gallons. Even at 20 gallons, 10-cent cheaper gas saves you TWO WHOLE DOLLARS per $2 a tank off worth possibly $3000 in repairs due to bad gas?

Please ask for help performing any of these repairs if you feel like you can do them with a little coaching, and please be more specific in describing vehicle problems. You can even say "It makes this chick-chick-chicky sound," and a good mechanic can get insight from that. You don\'t have to be as technical as us.

Fuel spilling out of fuel spout.

may be the spout (where you put gas in )and the line that goes directly into your tank has a hair line fracture?? or it might be as simple as the wrong gas cap??

With my 2005 Chrysler Town and Country van, I have trouble fueling the vehicle. The nozzle keeps shutting off as if the gas tank is full. What do I need to do?

Usually a sign of a blockage in the vent pipe inside the filler tube, or the vent for the gas tank. Air pressure inside the tank has to be equalized as the fuel is added.

I have put 3 fuel pumps in 2 years why do they keep going out

You are pulling trash through the line from your old tank.

Back in the late 80's and early 90's, gasoline wasnt as watched today, and you more than likely have debris from regular use and accumulation from using gas cans and what not.

here are your options

1. Replace the fuel tank along with the pump this time. (it will cost another 100bucks but will last atleat 45k-55k miles no problem) = RECOMMENDED SOLUTION

2.Drop the tank and clean it out. (this is very dirty and time consuming work, be prepared to buy a new tank if you take it off in case its more difficult than your willing to do)

3. Stop running your vehicle out of gas. Put tape or something over your gauge or something to where half a tank is your refill point. The most damage to a fuel system occurs when your fuel level is at 30% or below capacity. I recommend 50% for vehicles with major "fuel sputtering"

Remember that all the components of your vehicle work together. Getting the wrong fuel mixture can permanently damage your vehicle by putting added strain on the heads and block, ultimately cause fractures and inconsistancies within the engine itself

What does code po442 means on a 2004 chevy blazer

This code is for the evaporative emission system.The po442 means there is a small vapor leak in the system.The module does several checks during the time you operate your vehicle and monitors the fuel tank pressure sensor Hope this helps.Good luck.for leaks.When it sees a leak it will kick on the check engine light after it fails a certain amount of times.this does not mean there is fuel leaking out and you will not smell any fuel either.The repair shops have a special tool called a smoke machine that will help them find the leak when they pressurize the system.The usual culprit is the vent valve but this does not mean it can`t be something else.I checked bulletins and found one for your vehicle that says there could be a fracture in the filler neck of the fuel tank.This does not mean that your vehicle has a fracture in it but that it should be checked because it could have one in it.This means they have seen this problem in these vehicles.This will not hurt the vehicle or leave you stranded but it should be repaired.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Missing flapper valve on an 06 town & country van's gas tank

I doubt if that is the reason your check engine light is on. It is more likely an o2 sensor. However make sure your cap is tight when you add gas and don't leave the engine running while the cap is off. That can trigger the light

Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.
