My engine will make this sound approx. after running for 5 or so minutes. The sound will come and go, but once it starts it won't stop until the next time I start my car and the noise doesn't start. Is it the belt, which one, or the fan?
The driver and rear passenger windows work find. I was told it was the switch. Need to know how to replace it. It may be just a connection as I live on a bumpy road.
2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Recalls
A wiring harness that is not routed properly in the driver's side door may short, resulting in the side curtain air bag on the driver's side to fail and not deploy in an accident. Dealers will inspect the wiring harness and make repairs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.
The vehicles being recalled are equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) assist system. The EPS can fail unexpectedly while driving. If this were to occur, steering ability would be maintained but much greater effort would be necessary to steer the vehicle, especially at slow speeds. One of four remedies will be applied depending on the model and year. Parts are not yet available so expect a second notification when they are.

I purchased a brand new 2010 Cheverlot Cobalt in October 2010 and I've experienced countless problems with it ever since. From the start I've encountered the following issues: 1) A/C unit that didn't work (didn't blow cool air) the first time it was turned on in April 2011. Same problem occured again in summer of 2012. 2) Improperly installed steering column which cause the vehicle to pull...
My first Cobalt was a 2008 LS sedan that was assigned to me at work. I was not happy about it but decided to make the best of it. I drove it 68k in 18 months and had one problem. The fan setting selector went out with 2k miles. After that, nothing wrong with the car at all. Flawless, impressive power for a 4cyl and excellent fuel economy. I liked the car so much that I bought an LS coup...
