the car won't have any Top-End speed or something is holding it back...but this symptom could also be a plugged exhaust or a timing belt that has slipped a notch... or a bad clutch or slipping auto transmission...:)

the factory recommends a new t-belt at 60, I recommend it every 50K miles...


everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)


I agree with above won't get enough fuel pressure to the fuel injectors when the gas pedal is a pushed hard. Replacing the fuel filter is an easy job for a backyard mechanic, or else fairly cheap if you pay someone. It seems nobody ever replaces fuel filters, so I strongly recommend it for EVERYONE who owns a car that is not brand new. I think 50,000 miles is good idea....VW might tell you at 30,000 miles....I'm not sure.

Clogged fuel filters result in poor throttle response and lack of power. Filters should be ideally changed before that happens. The 2002 Trailblazer owner manual says fuel filter should be changed at 100k miles. I expect the 2003 manual makes some comment. I have a 2002 and just changed filters.
