Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

2006 chevy aveo; revs while idling; gas pedal gives no response

There was no lead up to this problem. Everything was working great. Went out one day and the gas pedal barely moved the car. The typical idle has been about 800 RPMs, but now the car idles by jumping from 800 to 1,800 RPMs and back down again while in Park. Putting the car in drive, the rpms drop to under 500 and vary between that and 700. Depressing the gas pedal will get the rpms up to 1,400 and will move the car at an incredible 3-4 mph on level ground and 1 mph uphill. I've called several mechanics and have received the following answers: Your transmission may need to be replaced; you have a problem with a sensor; you may have water in the gas tank; it may be the fuel pump. The check engine light is on. Has anyone solved anything like this?

    Thanks for the suggestion. A guy that had been working on cars for about thirty years opened the hood and found a small crack in the elbow connector that attached a vacuum hose to the carbeurator. We purchased a new elbow connector and replaced it. Works fine now. The vacuum hoses are right on top and visible to the naked eye.

Not quite everything is fine.
Is the check engine light on ?
When you push on the gas pedal, does the engine speed change ?
Can you rev up the engine in park ?
What have you checked so far ?

My accelerator on my 91 chevy corsica is stuck and it wont disengage, when i put it in park the engine continues to rev up, any ideas on how to fix?


It sounds like the gas control lever under the hood may be sticking a little and not retracting fully to idle.Open your hood and have someone start your car.When they give it some gas you should see the actuator move which has a cable attached,probably located at the end of the fuel injectors on the driver side.It should be pretty noticeable as about the only moving mechanism when the gas pedal is pushed.Usually pushing the gas pedal makes the lever move toward the driver.Once you have found it,push down on it in the opposite direction as giving gas to see if the revs decrease back closer to idle.If it does,WD-40 on the hinge where it pivots may help.Spray it,rev it a couple times and check.Even if it works on the first try,do it a couple more times.If this does not work,please reply back and I will get an auto link to see what you posted. Good luck! Greg

2006 Chevy Aveo Check Engine Light coming on and off


It needs a code scanner hooked up to it,to tell you why the light is on and the cause. If there is an autozone near you take it there or
call different auto part stores to find out if they do that.Without getting the code, it's just guessing what the problem is.
