problem #2

Dec 062002

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,978 miles
Acceleration pedal hard to push, acts like it sticks. The dealership cleaned the throttle body, they said that there was carbon build up which caused the sticking. This is the second time I had this cleaned. When I asked the dealer, he said this was very common with the 4.3 V6 engines. Dealer recommended adding fuel injector cleaner to stop the build up of carbon. I had been doing that. Seems like it lessened the build up but did not prevent it. I suppose this is going to be normal maintenance, similar to an oil change. I have had other Blazer and have never had this problem, it would be nice if the manufacturer could resolve the problem.

problem #1

Apr 012002

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,703 miles
Acceleration pedal hard to push acts like it sticks. Throttle body was carbonated up. Dealership cleaned throttle body and sticking stopped. The sticking usually occurred at start up but it also happened if you removed your foot from the gas pedal during driving to slow down and then reapplied your foot to accelerate. I put up with this for about two months before I had it serviced.
