Even though it has been charged it seems like it has no charge. Barely sucks for a few seconds and then dies.

I'd say the rechargeable battery has died. They do have a life, especially the Ni-Cad type, and then will not retain a charge.

I don't know if that can be replaced in your unit, but if you can take it apart you may be able to replace the battery. Many types are sold on eBay.

Why does my car just turn over but wont start

A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

Entire car and steering wheel wobble on my 09' Chevy Cobalt when driving straight. There is no difference when turning left or right. What is it?

Have you checked the steering wheel linkage ?

2009 Chevrolet Cobalt. Consumer writes in regards to steering column problems. The consumer stated part of the steering column was replaced 4 times, since the vehicle was purchased new in 2009. The problem was originally noticed as a rattle in the dashboard area in December 2009. The steering column was replaced. A similar noise returned in October 2010, where the steering rack and pinion input bearing was replaced, and on March 30, 2011, the steering column was replaced again. In February 2014, the rattle returned for the 4th time and the steering column was replaced. On November 2, 2011 the consumer attempted to turn off the vehicle, but was unable to do so. The dealer replaced the ignition switch. The old switch had completely apart inside the steering column.

i went to my mechcanic the same day my engine started to make the same loud noise that you are talking about. he said that it was the flex pipe. just this morning (5:30am 8/3/09) i went to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee and while waiting in line, my car just stopped running. like you said, when you take your foot off the gas and press the break, the car stops. no doubt about it, it is the flex pipe. im sure by now you got your car fixed but i thought that i'd share my car troubles with you :)

Soot all over Older Ionic Breeze Quadra

Hey, if you read the instuction manual : the DON"Ts section-you will see that candles, scent producing products,cause a lot of soot in these cleaners. If you burn scented candles, or use anythind that generates airborne odors, you will need to clean the system more frequently ( every 2-3 days).
I clean mine every week-no matter what.
One of the postings, talked about a : Monthly cleaning that was performed.
You've guessed it. The thing died-arced out.
So, extra odors kill these filters.
