2008 Chevrolet Aveo5 Problems

Speedometer Not Working and/or Code P0722 Stored in PCM

The speedometer may stop functioning with code P0722 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This may be caused by a worn speedometer gear due to coolant contamination of the transmission fluid. If contamination is found the radiator is most likely at fault. The transmission should also be thoroughly inspected and repaired or replaced as required.

Contamination of extended life coolant

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 150,000 miles.

Water Pump Inspection With Timing Belt Service at 60,000 Miles

Our technicians recommend having the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. They also recommend inspecting the water pump for coolant leaks while servicing the timing belt. If the water pump shows signs of leakage it should be replaced at this time.
