Where did you purchase the gas?
Exxon in Zachary.
I called them and they said that they weren't one of the stations with bad gas. Based on what my car is doing I ain't buying it. There is literally only one single thing that would cause my car to do what it is doing and that is bad fuel.
keep in mind once it warms up and the valves unstick it runs fine. It's not "mechanical".
Also the trailblazer has the straight 6 with an overhead cam. V-8s have push-rods and apparently the pushrods are getting bent on the V-8's due to valves sticking.
