2006 Chevrolet HHR QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Yesterday morning it was a balmy 9 degrees when I went to work, I went outside to start my car and it would not turn over. It worked just perfect the night before, the lights (interior and exterior) were on, radio on, everything was lighting up fine. It would make sounds like it was trying to turn over but never did. Finally about 10 minutes of messing around I got it to start but it was very loud almost gas lawn mower or stock car sounding and the exhaust pipe was just shaking. It shakes awful when sitting still (in the drive, at a light) but not when the car is in motion and when I hit the gas it hesitates to accelerate and does so at a very slow rate and the RPMs shoot up. It does smell of exhaust fumes but also there is a burning smell similar to burnt rubber you can smell from the outside of the car. What could this be? She was fine then not even 24 hours later virtually falling apart.
At red lights or going up hill hear sputters like its going to shut off but doesn't and only does it some time had engine and tourqe converter and fly wheel replaced as well. Transmission was replaced just before I bought it idk need help

Dealer did not do a diagnostic, but charged for throttle body reprogram and ECM reprogram. Problem didn't go away, they now want to perform diagnostic but cant guarantee they will know what the issue is
I have a flat and cannot get the wheel off, I just got my car and there isn't a key with it.
What is the function, cause of short and reasonable cost. I was quoted $980.00
