    Hey all, I’ve got a 2006 GMC Envoy and about 2 months ago my old lady was driving to work when the engine started overheating, and after pulling over and her coworker noticing coolant leaking out they added more which proceeded to just gush right back out essentially and they had to get it towed...

    I've been having a knocking sound on startup the last few days. I have a suspicion it's either the fan clutch or the water pump, probably both at this point. I took a video of the Running engine, the fan looks really loose and you can hear a bit of knocking. I also took a look at the Water pump...

    I recently expietenced a cooling system failure on my way back to work on lunch break. My engine temp spiked and my engine alarms started going off. Luckily I was really close to my work. I was able to get it to the parking lot, opened up the hood and coolant was spraying/leaking everywhere. It...

    Just a little post to let some folks know that a nasty rough idle and noisy acceleration (especially 1-2 upshift) in my 2004 Trailblazer was actually caused by a faulty water pump!!?!. I never lost any anti-freeze, but could always smell it, I only noticed a rough bouncy idle, not RPM's...

    Hi, I brought my truck in for upper and lower ball joints, water pump and thermostat. The mechanic quoted me 4 hours. The owner charged me over 11!! and marked up the parts 60% on top of it. He will not honour what his mechanic told me. But before I go to BBB to complain, I want to see what...

    My 03 has about 90 thousand miles on it. The other day I was driving and the check engine light came on. I hooked up my scanner to it and it was giving the code for the thermostat. I changed the thermostat in it and now it went from running too cold to running way over 210 but not in the red...

    Hello Folks, I had to replace the water pump on my 02 Trailblazer. I got everything back together, and I had the classic dirty throttle body symptoms after having the battery disconnected - it would almost stall, rpms around 300 after turning on A/C or defrost. So I removed and cleaned the...

    I found a puddle of coolant in the driveway the other day. Thought it was tranny fluid at first but then noticed the level of the overflow reservoir was low. When I went to drain the coolant it looked as if the leak had come from the lower radiator hose. So I drained the fluid and replaced...

    All, I have a 2005 trailblazer (4.2 V6) for which I have changed the water pump 2 times since owning it. As the pump begins to go bad the idle in the car gets rougher and rougher. When I replace the pump it cures the problem until the bearings start to go. I have been replacing it with a $30...

    So I found out what the noise was that was coming from my car today. It's worse than I thought, and I have a video that shows the issue. From what I see, it's the water pump. When the engine is on, the pump moves and when it does it makes the noise I hear. I'm happy I know what the issue is...

    Sorry guys but I have another "fan clutch" thread. I was hearing a clicking sound on my 03 trailblazer (100K miles) that disappeared when I disconnected the link to the fan clutch. From what I have been reading, that is a classic sign that it is about to go. Then I started getting engine...

    My favorite time of year... Well recently had some noise coming from the fan clutch / water pump area and took it to a dealership to get their opinion and they state it is the water pump that needs replaced. However, I just replaced both about 2 years ago so I thought it was odd. Anyway, here...
