I am not sure of anything else you can check but I will offer to take a quick look for free to see if there is anything obvious or see if any codes are stored in the vehicle that may shed some light on what occured. You do not have to take your car to the dealer!! You can call me at 253-833-8161. Thanks, Greg

CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE BRAKE LIGHTS. YOUR VEHICLE USES A SYSTEM THAT WILL NOT ALLOW IT TO COME OUT OF PARK UNLESS YOU HAVE YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ANDYOUR VEHICLE NEEDS TO SEE A BRAKE LIGHT SIGNAL FROM THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH TO RELEASE THE SAFETY SYSTEM. YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN FUSE OR SOME OTHER FAULT IN THAT SYSTEM. HOPE THIS HELPS! GREG

Question Answered: 

I agree with checking your owner’s manual but I personally disagree with extended oil change intervals. I change the oil in all three vehicles I own every 5,000 miles and I use synthetic oils! While that may be a bit excessive I would not go more than 5,000 miles without and oil change using standard oil! This also affords your service facility the opportunity to see the vehicle 2-3 times a year to check your lights and perform a courtesy check just make sure everything is ok. Just my 2 cents worth!

The Chevrolet diagnostic connector ( OBD ) should be in plain view just below the steering column and just below the trim panel. You may have to remove the panel and see if someone has broken its mount and just stuffed it up in there somewhere! Hope this helps!

The Easy way to do this is if the front and rear o2 sensors mirror each other in terms of amount of fluctuation and the outlet temperature of the Cat is at or lower than the inlet temp the cat is faulty. ( we use an infrared thermometer and on a healthy cat the outlet temp can be as much as 200 degrees higher). Hope this helps!
