I'm taking a wild guess that you recently unhooked or replaced your battery?

Your problem is a dirty throttle body, and if you do it yourself, can cost you about $5 for the can of throttle body cleaner. Unhook your battery again, and clean the throttle body and butterfly very well, must be shiny. Careful as the butterfly is very sharp. While removing the entire throttle body and cleaning it is best, leaving it bolted on will solve your problem too. When finished, hook your battery back up and drive around for 20 minutes or so with all accessories OFF. During this period, your computer will relearn a properly functioning throttle body.

Your computer learned some bad habits before the battery was unhooked the first time. When it was hooked back up, it thought the throttle body was clean and functioning properly. Cleaning it takes care of this problem. I do mine about once a year.

2004 chevy trailblazer idles up and down when heater is turned on


Not just the heater, but the defroster only. Turning the AC on will do the same thing. You need to clean your throttle body with the battery disconnected to fix this problem.

2004 chevy trailblazer power loss, high rpms, low ppms


Check the timing chain. Some times the chain will shift with worn teeth and get out of synch. This will cause the engine to lose power and back fire. Sometimes with a flame through the carb. I did that one once. Easy fix if it is the problem.

You need to get the fault codes read to determine where the problem is that set the SES light. Autozone will scan your car at no charge. At some point you will need to get a mechanic involved to further diagnose the codes.

When the check engine light is flashing, it indicates a serious condition. You need to have the car scanned for trouble codes and diagnosed, making guesses is going to waste money.
