Reported by Imkeepinup for the Chevrolet 1500 Pickup

This is the best video, by far, that shows and explains how to fix all the wipers problems everyone is talking about. I posted a month ago about doing this and my wipers continue to work like new again. The only thing I would add is that when you put the new control panel in, it fits SNUGLY into a slot. It slides into the slot up near where the plug is and if it is not right, it will not go in. Once lined up, I had to tap it with a rubber ...

After replacing several parts and tracing wires to see if they give a -5 reading. Chevrolet has a known issue with a wire shorting out on the front drive shaft.
Check at the transfer case where the front drive shaft meets and you will see a wire loom very close to touching the front driveshaft. This wire is shorting out on the driveshaft.
To fix: Pull the wire loom back to expose the wires and wrap them individually with electrical tape. U...

Reported by Chanman48 for the Chevrolet Avalanche 1500

One day after driving noticed green fluid leaking from the bottom of the truck. Talked with a few folks and found out it could be a very common problem with the transfer case. So I drove it around the block, and climbed underneath afterwards. Sure enough the fluid was comming from the side of the rear casing on the transfer case. Had to pull out the entire transfer case and take it in for a rebuild (I removed it myself, but the shop would've r...

Last year I paid about $700 or $800 cause my car didn't want to start at first the light read security then I wait 10min then it would start and one day the car didn't want to start I took my car in to the dealer and they told me they have to redue the key code. They said after so many miles the code changes. I feel I should get a reburissment for spending so much money on just to reduce the code. Please help me I want my money back.

Reported by Barsom for the Chevrolet Cobalt

We had seen problems on these engines when the main timing chain tensioner begins to fail. The engine will make a terrible rattle noise and then gets quiet. If problem is not address promptly, timing chain will skip over the cam gears causing great damage to engine. GM had extended the warranty on these engines up to 100,000 miles, call dealer for more details. Also if engine is over 80,000 miles is a great idea to replace the water pump, it w...

Reported by ajfixing and 1 other for the Chevrolet Uplander

Had to pump gas when starting. A bottle of Crc throttle body and intake cleaner, a bottle of Crc mass air flow sensor cleaner and a tooth brush fixed the problem. Less than a $20 fix and a hour of time. Disconnect the battery, remove Maf sensor and spray thoroughly on both sides of sensor, allow time to dry completely. For throttle body take off air flow tube and prop open throttle blade spray and scrub thoroughly, wipe clean, spray in all po...

Reported by inaneone for the Chevrolet Aveo5

The Chevy Aveo5 Special Value has had problems with the sensors from the day it was driven off the lot. It failed inspections for emissions every time. This time around, it was taken to the dealership for diagnosis. They said it was the electrical wiring harness. It had to be replaced. This car has had nothing but problems from day one. It's at 100,000 miles right now and has had thousands of dollars of repairs and still isn't right.

Reported by mam5483 and 4 others for the Chevrolet Trailblazer

It was a multi system electrical failure of the power windows, power door locks, radio, and climate control system. It was intermediate, which lead me to believe it had to be a connection problem. After internet investigation I was lead to believe it was the 125 amp fuse under the hood on the outside of the fuse box. I was in the process of jumping the fuse when I noticed a loose nut on the positive side of the fuse connector. I tightened the ...
