Let’s go over the basics to be sure nothing has been overlooked.
Your Trailblazer will set a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in the computer if it overheats. If engine coolant temperature is fine at cruising speeds and it overheats only in slow, or stop and go driving, you have an airflow problem. Then the electro-viscous fan should be suspected, diagnosed, and replaced if bad. If your mechanic is testing the operation of the computer-controlled fan clutch, which can be controlled with a scan tool, it sounds like he may be on the right track. If you’d like to have this checked out by another set of eyes, consider a qualified mechanic who can performs these checks and diagnose your overheating issue at your own convenience.
