Question about Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

I drive a 2006 Chevy Cobalt. Its a stick shift. When I'm accelerating it acts like its slips out of gear then all of a sudden jumps back into gear. For an example I was driving on the expressway in fifth gear and tried passing someone by accelerating past them that's when the car revved way up then just took off after a moment. Also I can smell something burning after that happens. Whats wrong with my car?

My 2006 chevy cobalt wont run in drive it dies but will run good in reverse


On some old Buicks and Oldsmobiles the overdrive would stick on. A bandaid cure for them was to unplug the cable under the hood, but you no longer had overdrive. I heard that changing the transmission fluid would clear that up. There's no overdrive in Reverse.. placing the car in 1st or 2nd gear could bypass o/d also if they don't use the same gear set. Once up-to-speed, place the car in Drive. This only works if the reason the car dies is it can't accelerate in that high a gear at such a slow speed.

Why does my 1995 Volvo transmission stop going into gear after it's hot?


1) How's your fluid level?

2) When did you last replace your filter?

3) When it shifted, did it go trough all the gears as you accelerate or did it just stay on one gear and never shifted?

4) How's reverse, does it slip out too after 2 - 3 min?

5) As you first able to shift into gear, you can drive it for 2 to 3 mintues and it just suddenly slip out of gear?


.... could be a number of different things. Maybe even burnt out clutche(s) inside your transmission

I have low exceleration when i take off


Only recently has my 97 Honda Passport been acting like the transmission slips...I'll be in Drive and the revs jump from 2 to 5 or 6; I'll drop it to 3, and it settles down. Last week, I was in Drive, then went to 3...then back to Drive and it jumped...and the Check Trans light came on.

"TC off" light comes on sometimes and stays on


You may have a brake caliper sticking causing the sensor to trigger. This would also partially explain the hard shifting if the E-brake is dragging.

2006 chevy cobalt. the key will not come out of


If the wheel is turned in either direction, pull the whell in that direction and try getting the key out. If that doesn't do it, try shifting the automatic transmission from Park back to drive, and then to park again to disengage the interlock.
