Try servicing your engine. It might need a tune-up or a change of oil.

Why will my 08 chevy colorado not shift out of park?


I answered this earlier. This should help get you home or to a shop. Turn you ign. keg to just before ,on , "no dash lights" do not start it. now shift into neutral and then start the engine and shift into gear. This is only a temp. solution. The "TRANNY< BRAKE LOCK SWITCH" needs replacing and it needs to be done by a pro, with specialty tools

2006 chevy colorado has power wont crank


Do you have a security light flashing in the dash when you try to start it, does the starter spin the engine for but not start it up? Have you tried spraying fuel into the intake during cranking? Do you have spark? Any fault codes? All this can be the problem and other things as well, have them all eliminated as the cause.

What's your problem?1996 chevy cavalier dash warning light has a red arrow pointing towards water and car smells like something is burning P


The light does it say Water? You are sure about this? Please have this checked by a mechanic asap,. if it is starting to run hot if you catch it early then you can avoid serious damage to the engine. The smell may be a leaking engine water pump or other component of the engines cooling sytstem.

Reduced power code comes up and my truck stalls.


I had the same problem, and the solution was cleaning the throttle body, it does need to be completely removed to be cleaned thoroughly. I just used some brake cleaner on a rag to clean off all the carbon deposits. A friend of mine who is a dealer tech had only seen this trouble code once, and this was the solution. So far, my light has not come back on and the truck is running alot better at idle.

All warning lights flashing on dash of chevy trailblazer 2003. Runs fine all gagues go dark like truck is turned off but runs fine


All warning lights flashing on dash of my 2002 chevy trailblazer. Runs fine all gagues go dark and turn back on every now and then. Also the gagues all go to the right or stick half way like I am idling at 5000 and going at a speed of 60mph when I am sitting still. I am thinking it has something to do with my computer because the rest of the truck is working just fine.

2006 Chevy Colorado - I got a significant of water in cab on flr


This happened to me. Problem is that the wiring and transercase ECM under the floor mats are not weather sealed. To fix the 4X4 ECM youll need to take up all the flooring and sound proffing. They hold a lot of water and never real dry out. Next to replace the ECM its easyest to take out the drivers seat. Four blots hold it to the floor. The black box under the seat (under the floor mates) is the ECM for the transfer case. Replace that and get the conections in the wireing dry and you should be good.

Service engine soon


hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.

How do I reset the "Oil Change Warning Indication" on colorado


if you have a owners manual read it. try coloradofans.com website and search the forums. i think johnny5846 is right if you don't have a DIC (driver info center). i believe you use the DIC(tripodometer). i don't know the sequence off hand, you can also you can change your lock settings and alarm settings, etc. with the DIC.
