Trust me, if it's the low pressure line, the high pressure hose is on it's way out too. I tried to do a band aid fix of the high side line using Gates high pressure power steering hose and several hose clamps. It worked for about 6 miles and then blew as I was pulling into a parking space. What a mess! Anyway, order a full set of Gates or ACDelco hoses, set a weekend aside and replace all the power steering lines at one time.

Spray the nut and threads with Kroil or AeroKroil. That stuff is truly magic on stuck nuts like this.

If you spliced the high pressure line, expect more leaks until you replace the entire line. Ask me how I know...

If I recall correctly, there are a couple of fasteners in the middle and then at the ends, it just pushes in and pulls out (although don't quote me - it's been 3.5 years since I had the grill off.

Go to www.wholesalegmpartsonline.com and put your information in. Then go to cooling parts. There are several images of how the various grills go onto the vehicle.

Well, since I do not like to purchase auto parts from unknown online sellers, and used parts like this cooler could be rusted as badly as yours is, I would go with a new Dorman 918-300 cooler.

I see that it is not in stock at Amazon.com for $94.57, but it appears to be in stock at rockauto.com for $124.99. This is what I replaced mine with and it is a decent cooler. If it ever leaks, well, it will be replaced under warranty since it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Good Luck!

Power steering fluid does not have a "standard color" to it.

No. Ravalli was wondering where you are located because if you were in California, there is no way your TrailBlazer would have passed an emissions test/inspection there.

I bet if you lived in Chicago/Cook County or one of the adjacent Illinois counties, you might not have passes either. Good thing you only have to deal with the Hoosiers! FYI, I lived in Hancock County for 4 years (far east side of Indianapolis) and did not need to worry about such things there. Now, I'm in Maryland and while they are not as rigid as California, they are getting that way. I guess emission nazis are the same everywhere anymore.

I have a suggestion for johnd393. The next time you have a problem or concern with your TrailBlazer, please start a new thread rather than adding to a thread that was started in September 2020. I know it's nice to have your history in one place, but for this forum it really is not practical - for you, yes; for the rest of us, no.

Thanks!
