I'm having a problem with my 07 cobalt it doesn't want to start after i pump gas,I have to hold down the gas or it will stutter and die. The check engine light stays on. I already had one sensor replaced, and the dealer told me that there are two. But i don't want to waste my money if that wont fix it. Anyone got any suggestions?

    If you have a Check Engine Light on, you have a real problem that needs a repair. I am sure it is related to your running problem. read thi- > http://repairpal.com/check-engine-light

    That's worse than not helpful. It's useless.

    I have the same problem! I have a 2006 Cobalt LS Sedan. I have issues with it starting after I get gas...I have to hold the gas down for it to go. I took it to the mechanic last week and they said my solenoid needs replaced, which is part of the starter...i hate getting gas. I have to put at least 20 dollars in each time to make it last me awhile, so i dont have to worry about going to the gas station. :) Anyways, I get mine replaced this week..OH, my check engine light is on too....have your solenoid looked at. :)
