    SUV runs fine, almost feels as if it is going to die when sitting idle.. when you push on the accelerator it kicks some.. then goes.

    2002 trailblazer sounds like a jet or a semi when accelerating, no service engine light on. Truck has much less power when accelerating but will eventually accelerate and the loud noise will then stop. I think it's the fan clutch?

This one is easy. The clutch fan is not disengaging. Mine does the same thing after it has idled a while but then will release (wind noise stops) after getting up to speed.

I have loud knocking sound when the throttle is pressed down halfway or more, and the knocking gets louder the further I press the pedal. However, the engine idles fine and accelerates smoothly at low...

Make sure you have enough oil in the engine (though it's likely too late) If you have knocking and oil light on, sorry to say, you likely have lost a rod or crank main bearing (engine needs to come out of car and completely apart (very expensive) Options are a re-manufactured or scrapyard replacement.

I have a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer LTZ, Just 110,000 never had a problem yet. Recently service engine light came on and now when i go to accelerate, their is almost like an idling sound before changes gears....

Your ECM has an error code locked in, when there is an error with the Fuel delivery system/ Exhaust system or any related sensors the ECM runs in a lag mode....Transmissions shift harder and slower (its an electric transmition) it may take longer to accellerate up to speed....My advice would be to go to AutoZone Napa or AAP (which ever is in your neck of the wood) and have them scan your ECM with their scan tool.... This will tell you where to start as far as troubleshooting. Also they can clear your check engine light.....this will make your truck run normal again (until the light trips) Hope this helps

2003 trailblazer makes winding noise when i accelerate.

it has to do with the clutch on the cooling fan. I have had to have mine fixed at about 50 k and it is acting up again at 87k. This tends to go away on mine as the engine heats up.

2002 reduced engine power light

You have some kind of ECU problem. You will need to hook to the diagnostic port to find the problem. Your vehicle has gone into limp mode. This enables the vehicle to run, but at a diminished level until you can seek help for the problem. Do not continue to drive it this way as you may cause damage to the engine depending on the nature of the problem.
