I noticed my vehicle was leaking oil on my driveway so I decided to take it to get it checked out as I was on my way to the lube N oil I went to turn and my power steering locked up almost caused me to crash when I took it to the lube N oil they checked it out and said its not the engine oil its your power steering that's leaking and it has all leaked out. So they took it over to the shop but after 2 hrs waiting they could not figure out what is wrong im very upset that this would happen to a car that is only a few years old I will have to take my vehicle in on Monday to have it checked.

Trailblazer 6-cyl

While driving 40 mph, the engine light illuminated, then the vehicle stalled. This caused the consumer to lose control of the vehicle, hitting a wall. The consumer had the vehicle towed. The dealership tried to repair the vehicle 7 times, but did not resolve the problem. The air bag also failed to deploy during the accident. The PCM failed due to a circuit inside, fluid leaked from the power steering hose, the engine revved high and was loud when the vehicle was started, the consumer saw sparks under the hood fuse block at the same time the gauges fluctuated and shorted, the right rear tail lights were inoperative, and the fuel gauge made a whirring sound when the vehicle was started.
