Chevy aveo 2007 5door, shift handle feels lose, car goes

if its a 5 speed, yes the shifting is loser than normal cars. the reverse is all jacked up.. if its anything like my 06 aveo when you shift into reverse you have to lift the little circle thing on your shifter up ad act like your putting it into first.. If it grinds try doing it slower. I HATE this transmission. Chevy did a horrible job on picking it. I always grind reverse no matter what

My truck (2000 tahoe 2wd) feels like it is losing power

Hello chowhound196: My name is Roger and I will help you. First I would change the fuel filter. If you still encounter problems I would check the fuel pump pressure. You did not state what engine is in your truck . So for a 4.8 0r 5.3 v-8 engine the pressure should be 55-62 psi. key on engine off. on a 5.7 engine the pressure should be 60-66 psi. Any pressure less will cause the engine to loose power to a will not start problem.There is always the possibility that the exhaust converter may cause a problem or the computer could cause a problem. A quick check for codes or a check engine lamp on would be cause to check the ecm for codes. Should you need further help please just ask.Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Rear end unstable when weight is shifted to passenger side

You are going to have to get under there and give everything as good look. Check all bushings for wear and looseness, check springs to make sure they aren't broken and check struts for leakage. Struts are gas-charged and if one has leaked out usually there will be residual oil at the top where the shaft goes in. When checking suspension, check with wheels supported (on ramps) and check free (jack under chassis, wheels and axle hanging) Don't just look...try to move stuff to see if there is any play there.
Personally, I wouldn't drive it 'till it's fixed. In an emergency situation you will loose control if the back end isn't tracking correctly!

Tail lights dont work

Oh boy, Chevy uses 3 important wires to make up their tail light harness. Brown is used for your parking lights and yellow and green are your signal and brake light wires, yellow one side, green the other. You have some seriously crossed wires. Start with tracing the lic plate lite since that works. Make sure it leads into your main parking lights and the ground wires from these tail lites aren't cut. The lic place lite will work with just power because the body of the lite is grounded with the bumper. Then make sure that there is power to the signal wires. You can do this with a test light and the signal light switched on. You don't need anyone to step on the brakes since it's the same signal, only interepted. Most importantly, Remove the tail lites and check grounds!! Good luck
