Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

2006 Cobalt fuel pump

All this within 2 weeks. Fuel pump failure. The following week fuel sensor failure. These parts were replaced by dealership under warranty, but now the fuel pump is making that bad noise in the rear of the car, again. I'm not seeing any posts on problems with fuel pumps. Could it be that the fuel pump installed 2 weeks ago was bad?

That does happen ~ more often than you would think,unfortunately. The 2006 Cobalts seem to be falling to pieces right now,though. If you are still under warranty make them check and repair everything especially your computer.

2006 Lincoln Navigator, goes for weeks with no problem then will gor for weeks with randomly not starting until the 2nd or third attempt . Car usually will crank but not turn over.

Turning over is cranking
You mean will not start !!

Given it is 5 years old

Change the Spark Plugs,if you haven't
Change both front O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles
Clean the MAF Sensor --CRC MAF Cleaner

Next -- TEST the TPS Sensor on throttle body
It is replacable. (2) T20 Torx screws and a hair
dryer to soften the thread locker
You may be loosing the throttle position on start up

Then check fuel pressure, at the fuel rail on engine,
also if your not going to work on it yourself, have the TPS
and Fuel Pump looked at with an Oscilloscope

The fuel pump may be going bad

Strong gas smell coming from my cobalt at all times

Look in the back of the car. The fuel pump lines like to break. You will not be able to see them, but you will smell and see that the fuel tank is wet. Call your local dealership, have you vin # and milage, ask them if it's covered by warrenty.

Have a 1991 buick lesabre 3800 v6, cant get to run, have had in a buick dealership replaced coil pack and icm, ran good for 2 then stopped, took back to dealership and the have been unable to find what is...

Check the ECM if it has the number 1228253 on it, this is what is wrong with it. Gm trashed all of these bad ecms. Get a 16198264 as they do not cause a cutting off problem . Get a delco ecm , aftermarket units will give trouble and may be a rebuilt 1228253 which is junk.
