Chevrolet Trailblazer owners have reported 3 problems related to power steering fluid (under the steering category).
My 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer had a sudden failure of the power steering pump. The vehicle only had 43,000 miles on it and failed without warning. It became extremely difficult to steer and fortunately I was not traveling fast at the time. Note that there were no leaks in the system and there was the proper amount of fluid in the reservoir at the time of failure.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer. He noticed that the power steering fluid was leaking, it caused the steering wheel to make a loud noise and lock. While driving 20 mph, the steering wheel locked as he was making a turn. He took the vehicle to the dealer and the diagnosis located the failure to be the rack and pinion and needed to be replaced. The estimated cost for repair was $800. 00. He is not sure if the vehicle will be repaired. The failure mileage was 59,000 and the current mileage was 61000.

First: thank you. I am a trooper for the colorado state patrol and certified car seat tech. Love your work. My own personal vehicle, a 2002 chevy Trailblazer, has a defect with the front differential. There is a leak from the seam, from the case itself. A mechanic friend stated it is a defect in the housing itself, the "punkin" (?) it causes leaks and needs to have fluid constantly added. The vehicle was primarily used in the denver metro area until this year (ie, high salt/mag chloride areas). The housing itself needs to be replaced, and I was wondering/hoping this was something chevy needs to correct via recall versus something that normally happens (which I have never had on any other vehicle I've owned). This vehicle has been updated when previous recalls came out, has not been in an accident that might have caused the defect, and is not driven heavily or offroad. It is a continuous leak. I am concerned the casing itself will break and do more damage soon, especially if I was driving with my family in the vehicle on the highway. Thank you for you time.
