Known Problems

The windows on the Chevrolet Beretta commonly lean in towards the cabin when they are rolled down, and a metal-on-glass rattle is heard with any vibration. As the problem advances, popping may be heard from the door as the window rolls up or down.

This issue is caused by failing window regulator rivets which no longer hold the window upright. This places undue strain on pads that prevent the window from contacting the metal door frame. After a short time, the pads inside the door wear out, allowing the window to rattle and become scratched in a vertical pattern.

To correct the rattling and popping noises, the window regulator rivets and pads must be replaced

One or more of the fuel injectors may short out electrically causing a rough idle condition.

The ignition module or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to die and not restart. Diagnoses will be necessary to determine if the module or crank sensor is causing the no start condition.

The PCV vacuum hose under the upper intake plenum may become brittle and crack causing an engine vacuum leak.

The engine vacuum hose to the MAP sensor may crack resulting in a vacuum leak causing the engine to run rough and/or stall.

The ignition coil housing may fail causing an engine misfire on one or more cylinders.

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.

The steering rack may develop a fluid leak or fail causing the steering to become hard to turn.

The timing chain tensioner and guides are prone to wear and may develop an abnormal noise, requiring replacement.

The 2.3L 4 cylinder engine can be prone to head gasket failure. This can result in coolant loss and engine overheating.

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal engine idle resulting in a stalling condition. A stalling condition may also result if an idle learn procedure is not performed if the battery goes dead or is disconnected.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
