Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 2006 Chevy Aveo. I live in MInnesota and the car will not start if weather is less than 10 below. It will start right up when the temperature gets above that for an hour or so. I replaced the battery with a cold crank battery, and the battery is cranking when I try to start the car. Also, after the car is started in the afternnon, the engine light will stay on until the next day. Any suggestions? Thank you.

The solution is to move to a warmer climate. But until u do that, here are some suggestions. Extreme cold is very tough on a car, and all systems must be operating well in order for a car to start in the weather u are experiencing. Since the engine light has gone on, have any trouble codes read that are stored on the cars computer. Most parts stores will do this as a free service. They will plug a scan tool into the cars computer port under the dash and check for the codes. Write them down and ask what they mean, and how to fix any problems. U can post the codes and any questions here for help. Make sure u are using the proper engine oil weight as recommended in your owners manual, oil that is too heavy makes it difficult for the engine to turn over in the cold. You can also check out engine oil heaters, which is just a dipstick u put in the oil dipstick tube, plug it in and it keeps the oil warm, which will be a BIG help on the cold mornings. Good luck, and spring is less than 3 months away!

Are there a lot of problems with chevy 2006 Aveo


Well, Gm couldn't sell any more geo metros so they renamed it the chevy metro. That didn't work too well so they renamed it the chevy aveo. Modern equivalent of the chevette. Research the Daewoo lanos, it is the same car under the skin.
