Clean the MAF sensor with some electrical cleaner or a MAF cleaner then let it totally dry or dry it with light shop air. Then do a couple of wide open throttle burst to reset the BARO reading and it should take car of it.

I have a 2005 Chevy Monte Carlo...which has dual heat and the heat on my passenger's side works but doesn't work on the driver's side.


There a heater control valves behind the dash which is either broken or have gotten stuck. The valve behind the dash act as on and off switch as as you would turn your faucet on and off. they tend to get stuck due to heat. The valve basically allowed hot antifreeze water to flow though the heater core giving you heat. when the valve broken or stuck open, the hot antifreeze will continuous flow to the heater core, therefore is the reason why you get constant heat. It a nightmare to fix, you will have to take the dash apart to get to it. the part run somewhere in 40 bucks. if your not mechanical incline, my suggestion would be the next time you get oil change from your local chevy dealership is to ask around those GM mechanic (Do not ask the Manager) and see who does side work; negoiate with him this way you will save big buck on dealership shop hours. Have only authorize GM to do the repair, not your local repairshop. Tearing into any automotive dashboard its every mechanics nightmare. Good luck!!!

2007 chvy cobalt clutch gone after 38,000 miles. shop is saying normal wear and tear


38000 miles is unusual for clutch being bad. What do you mean by GONE? if th edisc is worn out and the pressure plate and flywheel have a lot of HOT SPOTS, it would be from abuse. Clutch life is reflected by the drivers habits.
