Is the check engine light on while driving?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It is. I was told that was just for the gas cap.
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 6 years ago.
It is likely more than just the gas cap. Best thing to do is to get the codes scanned. You can get the codes scanned at Autozone free of charge. Let me know what the codes are and I can help you with further diagnosis.

I have the codes. one was P0128 coolent temp is always low. I verified this. the coolent level was low. The other code P0753 1-2 shift solenoid valve performance. explained as: "shift solenoid failure-repair other codes first"/"open or short circuit condition". The guy at autozone thinks that a transmission flush and filter might take care of the problem. Is that a potential fix?
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 6 years ago.
For the P0128 code, the fix is to replace the thermostat. This is a common failure on the Trailblazer.

For the P0753 code, a transmission flush and filter change will not help. The problem is either a shorted or open 1-2 shift solenoid. The fix is to check the wires in the transmission going to this solenoid and if the wiring is okay, replace the solenoid. This is nott too hard to do, the transmission pan must be removed to replace this solenoid.

#2 in the picture below is the 1-2 solenoid. This picture is a view of the bottom of the transmission with the pan removed. The solenoid is toward the rear of the transmission valve body inside the pan.
