The vehicle would jerk and shake back and forth. When I reported this problem to the chev dealership a year ago, I was told that because the warning lights and messages could not be reproduced in the service department, there was nothing that they could do. The problem is, when you fill up at the gas station, the pump keeps shutting off every gallon or so, making it an extremely long and arduous process. Of course, what the Impala lacks in uniqueness it makes up for with an impressive size-to-dollar ratio, as the Impala is priced lower than other full-size sedans. I have a 2000 Buick Century with a 3. The mechanic who was inspecting my car said there were five codes, two were transmission which is in another post. Where and what should I be looking for to fix this code? It is easy money for them and obviously a defective part they keep using for the last 10 or 15 years but hey, its money in their pocket.
Also missing are in-dash navigation and all-wheel drive. Today, I get an engine light and my car slowed down drastically. I looking for the same answers as you cause we have the same problems. This worries me very much as so many same error messages and engine problems happened on so many gm cars. Luckily we were able to coast to the side otherwise this could have been a disaster! Was located underneath Yukon behind fuel tank and towards the center, right in front of rear dif.
Even entering a highway on-ramp at normal speeds led to ; any faster, and the front tires started sliding under the strain. A blockage in the vent system will also cause a poor fuel fill problem. After it sat for a couple of minutes tried one more time and the car restarted and drove home perfectly. I searched online and found thousands of messages about the same error message of reduced engine power on many models of gm cars including Impala, malibu, trailblazer, silverado. Then symbol for check traction control and engine completely in passing lane on interstate 80. I got back on the highway and started to drive towards graff Chevrolet in mt.
I did some research on the internet and it seems to have happened to other chevy owners. Models well-known to be rental cars tend to get less respect in the market, too. First, make sure the cgas cap is tight, and if the light doesn't go away in a couple days of normal driving, get the solenoid checked. Once I replaced the part I was then able to clear the code, which has not reappeared since. I think this car must have been under water at some point. I am getting ready to take the car to the dealership again with this problem.
Get under the vehicle after putting on the parking brake and if you a little hefty, then removing the spare tire on the some vehicles will give you lots more room. Then just go under and plug the new one in and the problem is solved. Cruise control disabled as well. I cannot find anyone who will do this. This has been an ongoing issue.
My horn won't work, I made a Toggler switch work for awhile now that stop. Car stopped on the expressway, steering wheel locked up. Please see attached invoice, customer number 213805 for work done. Why can't we bypass this system with a cheaper alternative repair? All of this can be accessed via the rear quarter panel back by the gas tank and driver's side filler area. I have a code for a small leak, a gross leak, a bad solenoid. It is easy money for them and obviously a defective part they keep using for the last 10 or 15 years but hey, its money in their pocket. This was very dangerous as you lose all power with no warning going down the expressway.
The vehicle would jerk back and forth. Good luck and you're welcome. Definitely a safety issue with this vehicle. Check engine light come on and stays on till I shut off engine and turn back on only then engine light disappears my car only has 37,000 miles and is 3 year old its happen on the highway three time and in the parking lot of my work twice now. Car then stopped and there was no power at all. Competition like the 2009 Ford Taurus, Dodge Charger, Toyota Avalon and Chrysler 300 offer flashier features, like advanced multimedia systems with navigation, all-wheel drive and aggressive styling in the 300 and Charger. I looked at the dash and the following error lights were on service engine soon, check engine light, reduced engine power, and stablitrack light.
I need to know if there are an recalls for any of these issues. I was fortunate to be almost at a red light when this happened in midtown manhattan so that there was only blaring horns when I couldn't move the car. I had just replaced it the day before. I somehow made it to the dealership. Not so Lexus-quiet, however, was the suspension, which emitted thumps and whacks into the interior over bumpy roads. There are several complaints out there like this.
That would lock the steering wheel while going at accelerated speeds. The competition offers these higher-end features. The part is located in the gap behind the left, rear wheel. Now one code that comes up is usually P0449, along with maybe a warning to check the gas cap to see if it is on tight. Not to bad to have a spare! Of course, many of those sales can be attributed to fleet sales. The car never slid or anything so I don't know why the stabalization error would come on and this is the 2nd time it has done this. Then the car slows, it may jerk, or stall.
