Chrome does not like diesels the exhuast get too hot and turn chrome blue and the chemicals in the exhuast will eat chrome. The best thing to use if you want chrome is to go polished stainless steel. this is a harder metal, will not blue as easy and will not rust

Hi there?
It sounds like the injectors are blocked. the reason i say this is because the bottom of the tank is full of durt and it must have got through when it was low in diesel.
You need to get the car scanned, if the code p1517 comes up then the injectors are block for sure.
Good luck.........

I am told the glow plugs heat up in "firing" order, also the Duramax uses a intake air heater to warm the air on cold starts.

2006 Chevy Cobalt. My power steering goes out.


It sounds like the power steering motor is overheating pre maturely. Changing the motor should take care of the problem. What really happens is the motor reports to the power steering module that it is over heating and the module is shutting power to the motor down, the motor is actually no overheating.
