My 2009 Chevy Aveo has recently had an issue with code P0722 appearing. The speedometer and odometer both died, and the car is in limp mode - won’t shift past 3rd gear. I have read lots about the common issue of contamination of coolant/ATF from a leak in/around the radiator causing degradation of the gear that turns the output speed sensor, however, no evidence of contamination is seen in my ATF or coolant, both look completely normal. I have tried replacing the output speed sensor, and am in the progress of checking the wiring harness and connections as well at the TCM, but I do not want to spend more money on this car if it’s possible that this leak/contamination is the issue. Is it at all possible to be dealing with the contamination issue outlined in a technical service bulletin without having any visible contamination of coolant/ATF?
My name is Jen I drive a 2009 Chevy aveo 5 Lt. My tail break lights were recently replaced, when I step on the breaks the other break lights go on however the left break light goes off. What could the problem be?

Another problem is the shifter lights I noticed that they go in and out and flicker when I go over bumps what could that problem be?

How much would it cost to fix in Michigan
to remove front hub to change out front bearings.
It starts easily in the morning.
I checked pressure. Added oil and recharged. You can hear it Trying to start about every 5 minutes but doesnt. I checked connections, did not see anything unhooked. Blowing hot air and idle does change when it tries to start
I've replaced spark plugs, coil pack, throttle body, fuel pump, MAF Sensor, Upstream O2 sensor, none of which changed the performance above 2500 rpm. also attempted to reset LHM by removing cables from battery and holding them together for 10 seconds. No change in performance above 2500 rpm. Please help!
I know I pushed it once and hold lit up on dash. I was told it was to keep the wheels from spinning in winter weather but I don't think that is true.Please help thank youOHit has never came on unless it is pushed one time so far
My chevy aveo 5 has its check engine light on. I tried checking and tightening the gas cap but the light is still on.
The car drives ok.
No warning lights come on in the dash
The noise comes when the engine is warmed up and while the air condition goes on and off automatically; while getting accelerated from idle speed and switching back to idle speed. two new adjuster pulleys have been replaced but the noise is still there. Is that noise harmless or is there a chance to get the drive belt broken again?
The gas pump kept shutting off after every second or two. I was told it could be the purge valve? did code scans which indicated a problem with the fuel vapor canister.
Could someone possibly tell me what the possibilities are?
