Most Commonly Reported Chevrolet Car Problems

Erratic and hard shifting can occur from a failed transmission pressure control solenoid. To fix this issue, a partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs. On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original "in service" date of the vehicle. Please contact your local GM dealer for more information.

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.
The fuel gauge may not read correctly and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0455/P0461 stored for a fuel level sensor issue. These faults may be caused by a fuel vapor line inside the fuel take interfering with the fuel level sensor. If this is found to be the case, repositioned and securing the vapor line should correct this concern. If no fault is found with the fuel vapor line, the fuel level sensor itself may be at fault.

An intermittent no-start condition references any time where starting is possible sometimes, and other times the engine will not start. This implies that the difference between starting and failure to start is not understood.    When inserting the key, the engine may crank, the engine may sound like it is 'trying' to start, clicking may be heard, or nothing may happen at all.    In these situations, diagnostics are required to identify the cause, and the description of what happens when attempting to start the vehicle will guide where diagnostics should begin, and what the expected failure may be.   
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
