In a 2006 car the throttle doesn't need to be pressed when starting as it will have an auto choke as such. This is engaged automatically on cold start even if your throttle cable has snapped it will still start and if the cables snapped the throttle peddle will be on the floor or will feel different. Does this help

    You need more info on the car because the average price ranges from around $2600 - $5000 generic book values depending on engine,spec and the car is anon runner I suspect this is reflected in the price.without more info I can't advise you on the fault .ECU diagnostic checks at a dealer or garage will be more precise and less expensive than process of elimination .

How may I help you? Do you have your own scan tool (to look up or read codes)? If not Autozone will read Engine codes for free. Repair shops can start at $40.00 and go up to $120.00 per hour.

Im having issues with my 03 linconl ls the check engine light stays on i can drive a few minuetes but when the wrench light comes on it doesn't want to accelerate anymore.i got 6 codes to narrow down whats...

I would start with the coils. Almost all problems seem to be from that area. Maybe buy one at car salvage and shot gun it out. I think it's worth a try. Need to start eliminating possible causes. Yes alot of codes - need to find a commom dinomatator. Good luck

Engine surges at rpm over 1500

Look for a vacuum leak (lines and intake), Is the engine light on, were any codes present? A faulty EGR or IAC could cause the problem too. Check the throttle cable for any restrictions.

2006 Chev Colbalt Service Airbags??

seems to be my mantra this time of year (condensation). check the relay for the airbags... be advised because it is the airbag... to prevent accidental deployment of the airbag when you replace the relay... unhook the battery while you do that.
