Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
Theres many problems with this, it can be electrical, fuel pump, gas line, sensors, sparks, ignition coils.etc... but when you turn the car on you should hear the fuel pump turn on also(not start just on) itll be like a hum, it still could be clogged, on your engine somewhere there should be a bleeder for the gas line, check if any gas is coming out. You can get your sparks and alt checked at a shop. Finally the sensors its most likely either the crankshaft sensor or the camshaft sensor, you can replace these for about 40 bucks, still theres a possible fix for it , if you can locate them, tap on them with a blunt object but not to hard, and this can loosen up the sensors magnet which may be dirty or something

I have been having the same problem for weeks now. Good news, I finally solved my problem. My card would be almost impossible to start when it had not been started for several hours or overnight. When it finally would start it would spit and sputter for a minute or so untill you were able to get it to accelarate. I replaced several sensors before finding the correct one. There was never a reliable error coded set. sometimes the HOLD light would flash on and off until I'd shut the car off and then start it again. It ran fine after the first minute or so of the problem. The problem turned out to be the "idel air sensor" which costs about $50 on-line for the part. Its tough to get to but I replaced it myself. I have been able to clean the old one but since its hard to get to. I replaced it. It is located on the right side of the 2005 Aveo at the front entrance of the fuel/air injection manifold. It is on the back side of the manifold and the two philips screws are put in with loctite on the threads. Your will need to take to housing for this off the manifold to replace it. It is black and has a four wire connector plugged into it. Save yourself a lot of time and money by replacing the sensor first if you symptoms were the same as mine.
