Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Car won't start

I have a 2006 Cobalt, it was running great and when i got home i parked it in the garage went in came back an hour later and it wont start. It has about 60,000 miles and I am thinking it is something to do with the fuel filter or pump. Is it common for the fuel pump to go out that early? And where is the filter located?

    My 2006 was working fine, the I did not use the car for 2 weeks and now it will not start. The lights come on the dash but the engine will not turn over. Do you think the gas is frozen?

    Has happened to me twice now...when it got really cold overnight it wouldn't start in the morning. After the temperature rose during the day it started right up. The battery was fine and all the lights came on and radio so i don't think it was the battery. Frozen starter???

    I have roughly the same problem. The car tends to die when it is really cold outside. Got everything tested and apparently the battery is holding a charge, and the load test passed. All the electrical systems checked out.
    However once it gets really cold, you go to turn it on and all that happens is a few clicks. Any suggestions?

Can you turn on the lights? If not, then the battery is dead. Time to get a jump.

2006 CTS: Wouldn't start (not dead battery) Burning rubber smell.

My first guess would be the fuel pump is going bad. Sometimes jarring it a bit will make it work again and the tow may have done it. If it does this again have someone bang on the bottom of the gas tank while cranking, if that cures it then you'll know for sure.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery

Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start. Came home from work parked the car no problems at all. Few hours later went out to leave and it won't start. Just out of the blue. I was able to jump start it. No...

Battery is dead... get a volt meter, jump the car and with the car running on its own power check the voltage, anything less than 12v could point to an alternator but a new battery is a better place to start. put it to you this way if the car shuts off while driving, then its your alt, and if its fine wen drivin but wont start back up... its all battery

Key will not turn to start vehicle.

Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
