Customer Question
Sometimes after 75mph it...

Sometimes after 75mph it will no longer accelerate and while I was driving today I was braking and the car came to a halt and then when I hit the gas it would not move even though I was in drive. Also, the brakes wouldn't push down as if I had been pumping them.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

It starts the same. When I restart it acts like nothing has happened a begins to run normal. It seems to run through the same amount of gas so far

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2006 TrailBlazer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Trailblazer yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am fixing myself. I haven't tried anything for this problem as I cannot think of what would be wrong. Both headlights went out the other day so I replaced some fuses and the headlight relay.
