    I went yesterday and put a brand new batt in the car. But it did not change the at all. Is there any why it could be idle sensor? I really thank you guys.

    I had a new battery put in yesterday morning and as soon as i crank the car it died. The batt was bad and I was hoping it would help it to. But no change,Thanks you guys

Sounds like the alternator is not pushing enough amps! Get altrenator tested for a replacement, or maybe just a bad connection!

Advance Auto will read your codes for free and give you a print out of codes. This will save you $100 and a lot of guess work. I know MAF, MAP and PCM sensors are common problems on these.

2005 cobalt , engine chokes and kills in stopped or idle position

Could be a dirty throttle body, faulty idle control valve, or a vac leak. Usually if the idle control valve fails the check engine light will come on.

2006 cobalt 2.2 engine, when engine is warm it has rough idle and dies when stopping. it runs fine if not trying to stop. car has 136,000 miles, plugs were changed at 112,000.

You replaced the spar4kplugs but how about the plug boots, these boots are like sparkplug wires and they short out sometimes , with over 100,000 miles i would replace them, also you may have a bad coil . the coil is a complete unit its 4coils in one and may be misfiring, the other problem maybe a dirty throtlebody or bad idle air control valve, you said it runs rough at idle, i would first take it to have the computer scanned to see if there are any stored codes, the computer is always yesting all systems and when it sees a problem it stores a code, this code will tell you what is failing, many autopart stores will scan it at no charge, also if it sees the problem a certain about of times it will turn on the engine light, if you get it scanned and give me the codes i will be able to help you further. for example they may scan it and get a code that reads po302- cyl 2 misfire. this means cylinder 2 is misfiring and then you need to see why its misfiring, it may be due to a plugboot or coil or injector. i would scan it first. hope this helps. good luck.

2005 chevy cobalt 2.2 is running rough (putting)

Number three cylinder is miss fire,it does not mean it is the coil,although it could be,remove the coil,and boot,and spark plug,inspect them to see if the plug,or boot look bad,replace the spark plug,and if the boot is burned or distorted,replace it,a fuel injector can cause a miss fire also,but change the spark plug and see if this solves the problem,if not replace the coil,if it is a dead miss,then the coil might be bad,as for the water in the fuel ,the cap is missing,,and 5 dollars worth of HEET will not hurt,also,fuel from the fuel station,can have water in it.It happens a lot.

I recently relaced my fuel pump on my 2006 chevy cobalt 2.2L and now my fuel gauge won't read and engine light won't turn off

Did you put in a complete fuel pump assembly which included a new fuel level sender?
May be a defective fuel sender on the new pump assembly.
Did you have to rewire anything/change plug at fuel assembly?
May be bad connection or wrong connections.

Cobalt no spark

I was going to say crank sensor, but you changed it. What have you done to it latley? Or did this just start? I kinda want to say PCM for some reason. Any welding done on the car latley?
