Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer

SOURCE: how to adjust headlights on 2006 chevy cobalt

There will be adjustment screws located on at least two different spots surrounding each headlamp. By turning these screws you move the angle of the headlamp. Most shops will do this at a very resonable rate, I say this because improper headlamp angle may lead to a ticket, or at least a warning. To say the least, they have to be at specific angles and heights. Good luck.

Fault with the IAC valve.there maybe a trouble code associated with it also./ Go to your nearby autozone or auto parts retailer and ask them to put a scanner to the car....make note of the codes if any are found. the IAC valve i usually locate don the throttle body and can be removed for inspection and sometimes cleaning using a good throttle body cleaner spray and a pipe cleaner brush.

SOURCE: 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.

How likely is it to have a head gasket leak or cracked block? and if nothing is added like antifreeze will it crack the block?

antifreeze is needed in every engine as the additives in the antifreeze stop the water boiling at the cylinders, stop corrosion of the aluminium, stops the water freezing down to -10 C , lubricates the pump seal
Will it crack the block and heads ---most definitely as water expands on freezing and as it has no place to expand to and weak sections of the cast will fail and as cylinders and linings are less than 1.4 " thick that is what breaks
your cheapest fix now is a good serviceable engine from a rear ender from the wreckers /junk yard
OH -- and yes-- only use accredited mechanics from accredited service centres in the future

My son has a 2006 Chevy Cobalt The car is overheating losing coolant and there is smoke coming from the engine and underneath the car. What could the problem be?

there is a leak in either a hose, from the radiator itself or possibly the water pump. look around with a flashlight while car is running and try to determine where it is coming from. hopefully just a hose, thats your cheapest fix. good luck

Hi looks like your head gasket is gone, check if oil in water or water in oil, oil will go grey in colour, and open rad, when cold, check for signs of oil. But not good symptoms, sorry!

I have a 2006 Colbolt and I am losing anti-freeze somewhere,somehow. Either head gasket, or intake manifold(gasket)???? please help. Only 8ok miles on it. Still runs great when im driving, just runs a bit...

You have either a bad head gasket or cracked head.
Without a doubt. Get it checked out ASAP. Check your oil, if you have a ton of coolant on the stick, don't drive it, or you'll seize the entire engine. Good luck.

Will thermagasket work for my 2006 chevy cobalt 2.2 liter?i discivered coolant in 2&3 clyclinders have car misfiring on start up

It can be used as a temporary fix but the head gasket is going to need to be replaced. You also run the risk of pluging up more than just the leaking head like Heater core, Radiator. If you use the Thermagasket make it a short use and flush the cooling system after proper repair has been made

We have a 2006 chevy cobalt with a rough idle, sometimes dies. We have tried seafoam in the tank, worked for awhile, wondering where the fuel filter is located?

That is split year for fuel filters. If you have one then it's in the back by the fuel tank. It will up alittle in the center.
As far as the running rough; is there any codes in it?
