I have a cobalt too. I have been researching the hell out of these cars. I am not impressed. Too many problems at very little kilometers. I was wondering how bad it gets at 88,000 kilo.Your lucky you got that far.These are the problems I come up with.
Faulty electric power steering
Faulty ignition problems
Faulty steering shafts and components
faulty stabilizer mounts
Numerous electrical problems
Poor gas milage
FaultyFuel injector rail( no more room to write)

Engine surges


you start by having the fault codes read
The ECM records all faulty sensors and by reading the codes you save money by not replacing perfectly good parts
At this point it indicates a problem with the EVAP system that is not venting the tank properly but that is a guess from your statement

How do you turn off the airbag warning light on a peugeot parter hdi escapade 2003 88,000 miles


You will need to get the fault codes read first, a common problem is the wiring/connectors under the front seats. The fault code reading will help point you in the right direction. When the light is on the airbag will not work in an accident.

How to change spark plug on 2006 cadillac DTS. My chech engine light is on, will this fix the problem. 88,000 miles


The plugs are located by engine head. You can use a ratchet wrench and sockets to remove them. Make sure to mark the plug wires so the order doesn't get mixed up.
The check engine light comes on when there is a bad sensor, or bad circuit.
Many part stores will run an engine diagnostic code scan for free which will pinpoint exact problem that is setting of the check engine light
The light can only be shut off by the diagnostic scanner!!

TRY THESE TWO (2) THINGS..
Step 1: Disconnect the battery cables and touch them together for 30 seconds (this ZERO'S out the PCM/ECM (Power Train Control Module/Engine Control Module). If there's GARBAGE in memory of this computer (PCM/ECM), this should CLEAR it.
Step 2: Check the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS, it's a potentiometer) for any ERRATIC resistance changes at idle position or any other position for that matter. If you find, what I call BAD SPOTS, in the TPS, replace it. I know of NOTHING ELSE which would cause the problem you describe and NOT turn on the "Check Engine" light

96 Lincoln town car computer cycle through sensors


the ecm will cycle all of the sensors in the time that it takes you to put it into gear and start moving
on start up you will see all of the required sensors to be checked in the dash lights and when the lights go off , all the sensors are checked
when running any faulty sensors are checked and if the ECM can self adjust to compensate then it will do so
if not it stores a fault code or puts the engine light on
