Re: determining reason for check engine light in 06 chevy...
Possible oil pressure switch, oil pump itself, or rod bearing issues due to poor oil change history. (that last one is more of a knock that a tick)
Sounds for sure like you aren't getting the proper oil pressure and the ticking would most likely be the cam/rockers/valves letting you know they need more oil on them.

The oil warning light is for oil pressure, not the oil level in the engine. Your owner's manual will explain it in detail. You need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge or replace the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is faulty.

P2188 System Too Rich at Idle (Bank 1) On a Chevy Aveo I have heard 2 different things that cause this code, 1. Check for any vacuum leaks in the intake , and 2. Check for oil bypass in the cylinders, Personally I don't know which is correct , But figured I could give you an area to check , Good Luck
There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine.
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty.
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.
My daughters' brand new 2004 Aveo kept having dead batteries(we were on vacation). Finally someone noticed the brake lights were on and it was determined to be a problem in the gear shift, good luck! The engine thermostat is plastic and melted off causing fluids to get into the pistons. We argued and argued and finally Chevrolet picked up the bill for the engine being rebuilt. Then, the windshield cracked with no point of impact, cracked all the way around front window. The fuse keeps blowing on the power windows and now oil light is on and won't go off. Had new oil filter and oil change done. Hate this car!
I doubt the gas cap is related to the light, though hopefully you can get a replacement for it because it can be dangerous. As for the check engine light I'm not sure what it could be. Is the car running making noises, does it stall?? If there are no obvious symptoms, you might need to take it to a mechanic so they can read the error message from the cars computer and determine where th eproblem is.
