Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
First I'd Like To Thank You For Your Wonderful Service here,
I Purchased A 2004 Chevy Aveo With The 1.6 Engine. I Have read A Bunch Of Bad Stuff About Them Especually With The Timing Belts breaking. I Have A Question.
I Had The Chevy Dealer Replace the Timing Gears, Crankshaft Pully, Tensioner, Belt, Plugs, And They Did That Costing Me $700.00.
They Asked If I Wanted To Have Them Do More Diagnosing And I Refused (TOO MUCH MONEY SPENT ALREADY) The Car Turns Over Good And Starts Right Up Nice.
The Only Problem I'm Having Is While It Is Running It Is Running Rough. When I Accelerate It Runs As If The Spark plug Wires Were Arching Off Or Something, What I Mean It Runs Rough Like That Would Cause. It Will Not Stay Ideling Either.
The Dealers Guess Is That I May Have Bent Valves
1. My Question Here Is, What Are The Steps In Replacing Valves?
2. How Long Is Labor Usually?
3. If I Continuing Driving The Car Like This Will This Cause Any Other Problems? If So What?
Did you have the dealer change the belt because it broke ?
If this is the case they should know if it is an interfearance engine and if it is in fact an interference engine they should have checked the valves. If you had the belt changed just because you were scared it was going to break on you then I am sure the car ran fine when you took it in.
The explanation you gave sounds to me like they have the belt a tooth off and they need to re do it because the timing is out.
I hope this helps
