Chevrolet Aveo Problems

Water Pump Inspection With Timing Belt Service at 60,000 Miles

Our technicians recommend having the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. They also recommend inspecting the water pump for coolant leaks while servicing the timing belt. If the water pump shows signs of leakage it should be replaced at this time.

Speedometer Not Working and/or Code P0722 Stored in PCM

The speedometer may stop functioning with code P0722 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This may be caused by a worn speedometer gear due to coolant contamination of the transmission fluid. If contamination is found the radiator is most likely at fault. The transmission should also be thoroughly inspected and repaired or replaced as required.

Noise From Rear Wheel Bearing

One or both rear wheel bearings may develop an abnormal noise and require replacement.

Anti-Lock Brake System Malfunction

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) module may experience corrosion to its internal valves, causing the valves to stick. Sticking valves will reduce braking performance. Dealers will replace the ABS module free of charge to resolve the problem.

Fuel Line May Break in a Crash

In a frontal crash test, it was discovered that the fuel line in the engine compartment could crack and short circuits in the fuse box were discovered that would make the fuel pump continue to run. If this happens and fuel leaks onto the ground, a vehicle fire could occur. Dealers will replace the fuse block and install a new section of fuel line that has been redesigned. The recall began November 16, 2006. The recall number is 06133.

Tire pressure indicator always lit: annoying... seat belts that refuse to retract properly causing the door to bounce off the buckle half the time instead of just closing: aggravating... The check engine light indica...
One gets what one pays for. Low air tire pressure light on since I've had it. Putting air in tires does no good. Have changed serpintine belt twice. Over 65 mph car squeals like a pig. Heavy wind causes hard driving to keep on road. Passenger front door starting to rust in middle of door. Had to have two sections of exhaust replaced. Front end needs alignment. Garage wants $1350 says everyt...
