Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Boy here is a humdinger of a problem. I brought my 2001 Blazer LT to a repair shop to get both upper front bushings replaced. After the repair the auto now seems to get complete shorts of electric, all equipment, and radio stop, when the vehicle slows to 5k rpms, I get a complete shutdown, then without hesitation I can turn the key and start the engine again. Naturally the problem of electrical shutoff is still there around 5K rpm's If it were easy I wouldnt have to ask for help. Thanks Dennis

You might have a fusible link that is ready to burn out. Your problem is a very hard one to figure out but I hope this will help you get started. Also you might check out underneath for wiring that might been snagged or touched the engine exhaust manifolds.

The front suspension needs a lot of work. There is a lot of noises coming from the front end. My understanding is that this is common for a cobalt.


brakes and rotors will not cause noise unless they are badly worn and this will be evident on inspection
most noise will be from rubber suspension bushes and sway bar and shocky rubbers
I would suggest that you get quotes from suspension accredited shops and have each shop show you what is worn and what is ok
ON good roads ( hard surface) suspension units should last 60.000 miles before requiring repairs ( barring road damage)

1997 blazer i need to replace the front upper a arm bushings .is there a tool to get those out and back in? and what is the easiest way to this


The bushings are pressed in. The best way is to take the arms off and take them to a machine shop and have the old bushings pressed out and the new ones pressed in. Otherwise you will have to resort to hammers and hacksaws to do it yourself at home. Hope this helps.

Steering column possible replacement and alignment; front brake rotors and pads; front control arm bushings--what's a fair price for this work?


Call 3 shops in your area. DO NOT call chain stores, call independent repair shops that work on your type of car.

2005 dodge dakota/upper control arm bushings


Take them to a local machine shop. Most shops will press out the old ones and put the new ones in for a few bucks, especially if you have cash.

How do you REplace the control arm bushings


This is a major repair, if one is in need of replacment best to replace them all upper and lower and both sides! It will require some serious down time and support. Doing one side at a time will be the easiet method but it is going to require jack and jack stands and wheel chocks. Working on a vehcile in this condition will require extra safety precautions as you have to remove everything to access the control arms to press out the bushings. If you feel confident in you mechanical skills then it certainly is a weekend project. Serious question is if the bushing is worn to the point of needing replacement then the rest of your front end components are most likely in the same condition and should be checked and serviced as required. After your done the fornt end will require and alignment check as well, most shops include this in their cost estimate but be certain they state that in writting.

all 1998 and newer 4x4 blazers and s10s have front wheel bearing problems. If they are bad and you do not replace they can com apart then the only thing holding the wheel on is the axle shaft.
