Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

Same thing,power steering shuts off

After driven a few miles power steering shuts off.Put it in neutrel and cut the key off and back on and restart and it works ok for aout a minute.
In my personal opinion,electric steering shouldn't be put on a highway vehicle.Especally where I live,in the mountains.If I dissappear you'll know why.

Why would a 98 grand prix gtp transmission pull just fine for 5 milesthen quit cut off car put in nueatral 5 r 10 secs grank back put in gear pulls like a new 1 same thing over and over please explain


There are many things that can cause this, a bad transmission pump or torque converter, restarting the engine helps it because you are stopping the flow of oil and then restarting it oil starts to flow again and increase pressure as you accelerate ,
Another problem could be in the vanes of the torque converter with the same concept when you shut it down and restart it.

You would need a ****** shop to check pressure and put scan tool on it to watch readings, and last it may be low on fluid or internal leakage causing loss of pressure.

Transmission shifts hard into second gear(auto trans). However, when shutting engine off and restarting, the hard shift will go away. It will come back in a few days. Doesn't seem to matter how many...


it may be a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ). it causes transmission shift issues, bucking,jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, surge while crusing down highway. if this does not solve problem, it may be a sticking valve body in transmission. have a good day !! for an automatic tranny.

I have a 1998 Cherokee with auto gearbox, with petrol/LPG conversuion... My beast runs fine, but having driven 250 miles it had no power due to a fuel problem ?? Accelerator pedal ineffective , although...


I think water on the plugs would make it run rough. But, that would be from the cylinder head gasket leaking into the cylinders and not a radiator leak. It's possible that the leak at the head gasket sealed up. Do you have to add coolant to the radiator to keep the level up?

If not, then it is just a fluke, and I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Just keep an eye on the coolant level.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Car wont start when i turn the key


The first thing you need to check is whether the key has a pellet in it or "chip". If it does...the problem is most likely your key lock cylinder. Go buy a new key lock cylinder....KEEP YOUR OLD KEY. Take your new lock cylinder down to any Chevrolet dealer to find out what the VATS number is for your key....then have the dealer cut you a new key with that same VATS number...then go to your vehicle and remove the negative battery cable...this does two things...1. It resets the computer after a five minute period of no power...2.. allows you to work on the steering column without power on it.

Remove the steering wheel with the aid of repair manual.

Put the new key lock cylinder with the wire running down the steering column. Then put the steering column back together....Hook up the negative battery cable, then use your new key that was CUT and your car should start

Car will not crank have to put in neutral to start


Park neutrel switch is bad, under dash on steering colume. How many miles on tires maybe need balance, bent rim, better get front end chk. out. Alot of things can make it shake.

5.9 DIESEL ENGINE CUTS OFF WHEN DRIVING


Hi

From what I can gather, the engine cuts out and then the check engine light comes on, not the other way around, check engine light and then cut out?

If you switch on the ignition but do not start the engine, you will see that the check engine light is on. It won't go out until you start the engine.

When the engine cuts out, it is just as though you have switched on the ignition without starting the engine, the key is in the exact same position, and therefor the check engine light comes on purely and simply because the engine isn't running, not because it has sensed a problem, hence you have no fault codes, its perfectly normal.

If, however, the light comes on then the engine cuts out, then the reason for the lack of codes could be a short term electrical failure. If the power to the ECM were briefly cut then the codes would be erased immediately, but this would have to be a complete failure because there is a KAM (Keep Alive Memory) wire, which supplies permanent power to the ECM if I'm not mistaken. A good candidate for a complete failure is a bad main ground cable (loose or broken).

Wiring problems a just the worst ever to trace.

Just a thought to hopefully point you in the right direction.

Very best regards
