RE: 2001 Chevy Blazer - clutch boot installed backwards, clutch plate replaced - odor of burning rubbor or oil Dear Sirs,

Thank you so much for your services. I am looking for much more than just getting something off my chest. I am looking for a way to resolve my problem. I "purchased" a 2001 Chevy Blazer from a dealership, Reliable Chevrolet, in Springfield MO, a little over a year ago. I Put purchase in parenthesis because the dealership convinced me that GMAC's "Smart Buy" was just that, a purchase. It is not, it is a lease program. The dealings that had with me to secure my purchase was very shady indeed. They asked for a co-signer (to which my mother agreed) and sent the paperwork with me, to give to her.

They "highlighted" the lines for her to sign, and I returned the paperwork the next day. The lines she had signed were for the primary owner, not the co-signer and so she had purchased the car on her credit. When I pointed it out, they assured me that I could not get the vehicle on my credit and all I have to do is keep my canceler checks and show that I am paying for the vehicle and I would get credit for my payments. This is only the first half of my problem. After having this vehicle for 18 months, it has been in the shop 6 times. The first few times, it was concerning the clutch, (boot installed backwards, clutch plate replaced, undetermined reason why the thing stalls when shifting gears or why it loses power, then suddenly takes off, even when I am not shifting. It has sent me one time across a very busy intersection, while I was waiting for the light. I was moving it up because the car ahead of me turned right and my truck bucked and leapt forward leaving me in the intersection. Scary) It has also been in the shop because the master switch for the lights went bad.

Now I keep smelling this odor of burning rubber or burning oil when I drive the truck around. When the fuel gage gets to a quarter of a tank or a little lower, the fuel gage will swing back and forth, the fuel light comes on and I'm never sure how much gas I have. The maddening thing is, it doesn't do it all the time. Also, the truck has gone from getting around 290 miles per tank of gas to a whopping 185-155 per tank of gas, though I faithfully change the oil and do all the upkeep required on it. Any suggestions?
