Glad to have helped you.

Bravo!

I have had this clunk in my 2000 Blazer ZR2 since it was new. I always felt it was a hinge problem, but never took the time to solve it. I was even thinking it could be something loose under the drivers side dash panel. I will be doing this repair soon!

Bumping an old thread but I just wanted to say thanks. I was about to start ordering parts to try and fix the thumping. But i found this thread, went to the dealer and no more thumps. Now i just have to figure out why its running rough, and I fear that its the spider assembly

You are welcome.

If the check engine light is on and the engine won't idle, but will run ok on the road, you have to clean your egr valve which is right under where the plastic intake attaches to the engine.

It will fix the issue.

No check engine light. It just seems to run rough at idle and it seems to be getting crappy gas milage. I just found out through more research that I might be able to get away with just replaceing the valve instead of the whole spider.

Will replacing the solinoid for the automatic transmission, be a cure for the transmission not shifting?

Yea, the regulator will need to be replaced.

just remember that the longer you drive it like this, the more damge the gas in the oil will do to your engine. I would still remove and clean the egr as well while you have the upper plenum off and replace the EGR gasket.
