Re: how do you install a block heater on a chevy aveo...
A block heater is installed in one of the freeze plug ports in your block. Drain your cooling system. Then drill a small hole i the center of the freeze plug and screw a self tapping screw into the hole. You can the use a claw hammer or something similar to pull the freeze plug. Then you just install the block heater in the freeze plug's place. Refill your cooling system and let it get up to full temperature checking carefully for leaks. Please rate my answer.

Well, Gm couldn't sell any more geo metros so they renamed it the chevy metro. That didn't work too well so they renamed it the chevy aveo. Modern equivalent of the chevette. Research the Daewoo lanos, it is the same car under the skin.
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
I have the same problem with 06 Aveo the trunk door has broke on me three times the dealership told me the lever that opens it breaks well i had them fix it the first time cost me $100 then the second time they wanted me to pay $500 to install a whole new thing my husband glued it back together that lasted a little while then a friend looked at it and there is a little green piece that the bar goes into that is the part that breaks but sometimes they just don't assemble it right and thats what it was in my case so check that green piece and trade the pos in thats what I plan to do with mine the airbags malfunction two months after i get them fixed every time my advice never buy an Aveo!
go to an auto parts store and get an electcic dipstick heater . remove your oil dipstick after parking car for the night.install electric dipstick preferrably while engine is still hot plug it in at night .this will
help keep the oil warm and also the block after car starts unplug heater remove it and install original dipstick. this is the easiest to install but there are also block heaters
I assume you meant a Chevy Aveo.
-Remove the rear seat.
-Remove fuel pump access cover.
-Disconnect electrical connector and fuel outlet line
-Remove lock ring
-Pull out fuel pump assembly from the tank.
Reverse this to install but make sure you clean out the groove where the gasket sits. A lot of the time dirt/debris will get in the groove when you remove the pump and can cause some leakage later on.
