Original review: June 29, 2016 I bought my 2008 Cobalt used in 2011 with 47000 miles. When you replaced the battery, did you also check that the alternator is working well, at least 13. Had issues with the ignition shutting off but after recall work was done it's never done it again. The best type of motor oil to use would be fully and semi-synthetic, which come in different weight options. It was winter and very cold when we bought this car so we didn't pay attention to the fact it did not have electric windows. It may not have the bells and whistles of other compact vehicles, but this car is known to fare well when it comes to fuel efficiency.
I do not see any leaks top or bottom. There are several fuse boxes, so you have to hunt for fuses. I haven't had that problem for a year. He asked the same question. It is a good and nice little car. Power steering comes on sometimes but I just turn it off and back on and it fix it. Thank you for use Fixya.
I shattered the driver's side windshield. I purchase a 2010 Cobalt for my daughter. Bought entire accelerator pedal from local dealer as that is the only way to replace the sensor. The U-codes in particular speak to electrical or electronic problems. What would your opinion be concerning this? Take it to the dealership first and find out.
Sign In Loren Good reply for an easy check. I only caught the codes when the scanner I have permanently mounted in the car notified me of them. Aside from these faulty systems and parts, some owners have reported ignition troubles like a stuck key caused by a faulty shifter and a broken ignition module and defective coil, which could result in a misfire. To be completely honest, a Chevy Cobalt isn't the best car to rely on, and should only be a starter car; that's hard for me to say, considering I'm an all-out Chevy fan. I want this vehicle pretty bad to work. That might be because it is a 2010 which I've heard is the best model year and it was taken care of very well before I purchased it. All my dashboard lights come on from anti theft lock, service traction tc , low fuel when there is fuel in there , brake fluid, power steering, check engine, gauges start flopping back and forth.
I cleared the code and it came back within a few minutes. It'll help if you'll test-drive several Cobalts from various sellers to see the difference in performance and in overall condition. Grrr what could the problem be?? I like that it is small and is easy on gas. Could it just have been time for the engine to die. I am completely new to cars, but I looked under the hood and figured out that one of the connectors red one on the attached picture is unplugged.
Car kicks when changing into next gear, shifts very hard from park to drive, power steering loss. When I finish paying it off at the end of the summer, I plan to keep it until I can afford something more suited to my driving style. The engine doesn't rattle or knock and the transmission is still tight. This gave another significant boost to the power output while also bettering fuel economy to a significant degree. It has plenty of trunk space and bucket seats. I called for a tow truck and the car was taken to the shop.
Just like I told him, it appears that Chevrolet is waiting for something devastating to happen to my daughter or someone before they fix the issue. I took it to my local Chevy dealer and they said they had to replace the control arms to the tune of 900. I recently had my oil changed and had just had the car check prior to this. Another 7 years driving a potential car bomb!! Had a problem with the front end, but other than that it's been good. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage.
The brake stop light goes on while she is driving and goes off when she stops. This is because the door panel wasn't sealed well and moisture gets in there and creates a short, preventing the front speakers and internal chimes from working. He had an issue with his check engine light and had to fix it to get his tags. The mechanic found a wire wrapped around the transmission so he fixed that and we also had to replace the computer. Threw codes U0073 and P0700. It is easy on gas as well.
Original review: June 16, 2018 I chose Chevy Cobalt because it is sporty looking and the dealership was having a special on it. The problem usually occurs after driving in heavy snow conditions where snow and ice form at the bottom of the fan shroud and block the fan blade. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage. The only real issue with it was one of the sensors would occasionally go out on it after about 30 minutes of driving. The last issue in my car that I can't find a recall for is my locks. Green or blueish corrosion can wreak all sorts of havoc. Wiring harness recall fixed, power steering recall fixed.
It has a spacious trunk too, and is just the right size. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady. But sometimes I wish I had leather seats instead of cloth because I have a dog that likes to ride and her hair is always on the seat. I have had many of the same problems others have had. If not check whether you have air in the coolant which needs bleeding,or not good coolant circulation,caused either by clogged radiator,not good water pump,or faulty thermostat. But in many cases, it means at minimum that you'll be visiting the car dealer to locate the malfunction and get the light turned off. I understand the P0562 is low Charging System Voltage that could have been triggered by the dead battery.
