Sounds like voodoo, honestly look for something chaffing/rubbing the brake pedal, check engine light and brakes are not related on this model, but underdash harness and cluster and pedal could be the issue

SOURCE: Engine shakes and can not accelerate as quick when starts

If the engine light is on, a code scanner needs to be connected to it to find out why the light is on. It could be one of the sensors causing it. Take to autozone or advanced auto if there is one near you, if not call a repair shop that can do it. Autozone and advanced don't charge. Takes about 30 seconds.

SOURCE: Engine will die

There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.

SOURCE: my 2003 chevy cavalier check engine light keeps

go to autoparts store and use their scanner to scan the computer and get the code. you may have to wait until you can catch it back on again. You can try resetting the computer by disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and see if that works first

Going down the highway at 55-60 mph I just barely tap the gas and the vehicle jumps, I press the gas hard and it stops, leave off the gas check engine light blinks and jumping continues.


A blinking light usually means exhaust system probably catalic converter. You most likely have a small blockage in it which means exhaust can't get out correctly. Have vehicle scanned at autozone or similar.

Check engine light is on&traction control comes on my 2010 chevy impala


Traction control is simply put that one wheel has lost traction...This can happen even if you just pull out on the highway and perhaps one wheel is on small gravels and spins just the smallest fraction the light will come on...Also it happens a lot when it rains....Only way to get light off is disconnect negative cable to battery for 10 seconds then re-connect and it will clear all trouble lights because it re-sets the system.Engine light could have come on because of traction light causing a false code...All this is normal....You could at least check oil level....Auto-zone will scan it for free to see if you have any issues...And clear the codes with scanner...This way you can check for unseen problems......But you are probably safe if car has been well maintained.............Brooks.....

2009 Chrysler town and country wont start.


Making several stops can cause the battery to be discharged to the point it will not restart the engine. Remember it takes about 20 minutes driving at highway speed to restore the power back to the battery it used to start the engine. Also, have your charging system checked for proper operation. Your alternator should charge between 14.2 to 14.8 volts at all times weather it is under no load or at full load to be charging at the optimal charge rate.

2005 chevy colorade check engine light comes on in warm weather and goes off in cool or cold weather.this has happen several times


Has this problem come shortly after refuelling? Do you live in a humid climate? 9 times out of 10 this is a result of the gas cap. Failing that, can you get your hands on a OBD 2 tool or go to your dealer and have them scan the truck. The Check Engine Light throws a code and the OBD2 tool reads that code. The code points to the problem.

The rain is the culprit. It studders, misses, dies. Won't start.


Check the distributor cap and rotor. A usual culprit in wet weather. The CHECK ENGINE light is most likely a side effect. Have codes checked to be sure. Hope this helps

Check engine light has come back for the second time after having change the air filter and resetting. Now receiving a code: P0101 What do I do now?


Probably carbon build up on a sensor. Had this happen on a Ford Expedition. I put it on the highway and hammered it several times. It blew the carbon off the sensor. Light went away.

Engine Lurching in Cold Weather on Highway


I recommend a trans fluid and filter change first. It definately sounds like the problem is in the trans. If it was any sort of engine component you would have had a check engine light on.
