Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 81000 miles
OK, Last month my check engine light came on. I took the vehicle to a Chev. Dealership and they told me that it misfired and needed a major tune up at a cost of 800.00. They called and said both engine mounts were broken at an additional expense of 600.00 and that I should service the transmission. Total bill to pick up this vehicle worth 3000.00 was $2000.00, I drove away to experience tthe brake peddle shaking. Turned around after 7 miles and was told that the hub and bearing were out, and that the radiator was cracked. After these additional repairs, te car was vibrating (1 week later) and I was told that it needed rotors turned and brake pads. I have always had the car serviced at 3000 miles and transmission serviced at 50000 miles and no REAL problems. I have had the car back for one month now and a 100 miles from home last night I was on a 3 lane highway doing about 74MPH in cruise control when the car started a violent shake, it seemed to loose power and by the time I got it pulled over it died. I looked under the vehicle and did not see anything leaking or no smell. I tried to restart the vehicle; it started immediately but was shaking and I could hear a knocking under the hood. A few minutes later I tried the same thing, with the same results. I had the car towed ($250) to the dealership that did original repairs, but they are closed until Monday. Any ideas or suggestions? Woman neening advise!
have the same problem?
