Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Car was in garage over night, left for work in the morning. Air temperature about 3C. Tried to pass a slow moving car, shifting gears and press gas pedal to pass. Gas pedal stuck, engire reved to 7000 rpm. Stopped car. Waiteda minute. Car started back up but now notice that the gas pedal has to be pressed down to accelerate car. Linkage issue? Should I check the gas pedal cable, then check the throttle assembly? What would the approximate cost be to have this done?

You need to get the computer scanned. This can be done at Auto Zone or similar parts stores free of charge. More than likely you will just need new spark plugs and/or plug wires but I cannot be certain without the engine code.

Testimonial: "Awesome! Thank you so much for the quick and insightful help!"
I suspect it to be a waterpump problem. I have a '06 Impala LT and it is doing the same thing with the exact same symptoms. Do you also notice a puddle of coolant under the engine after you turn the engine off and return? Thats another symptom of a bad waterpump or a pump thats going bad. I am in the process of getting it checked out and will post the results when I get a mechanic to look at it. But to me it sounds like a waterpump problem so I'd check that out!

The shifter works off a shift cable which is connected to the transmission. The connection of this cable to the transmission is on the drivers side looking straight up were you can see it. The other end connects to the inner part of the shifting mechanisum where you shift
You can only get a replacement at any General Motos dealerships parts department
