The car was bought brand new and not driven that much, so i am trying to check mileage correctly

will not turn to the off pos key stuck

The air con on my Cobalt works, but it doesn't blow hard enough to actually cool the car. On a hot day I have to put all vents on me and keep a window partially cracked to keep from sweating profusely. My other cars aircons are like hurricanes but this one is anemic. I did have coolant replaced at the dealer and they checked lines for leakage but that was it. No alleviation
of problem. Any thoughts?

but still no power steering. What could be wrong and how much will it cost to fix?

Cobalt LS. Also no noise for turn signals on. The actual signals all work. Have checked fuses. Very occasionally the noises will work, so it's on & off problem, but mostly not working.

Dealership says my turn signal "plug" isn't working, cost is $446.67 to replace! My right signal clicks very fast, right front blinker not working. What is the correct term to look this up on the 'net, and how hard is it to change myself?

Even though it only has 53,000 miles. the transmission is getting difficult to shift from one gear to another. There is no shuddering or any other of the usual symptoms of a bad clutch. It is continuous and no matter what the temperature. I can drive it, but it is causing me concern. Is there something that needs to be lubricated?

was recently in a auto accident where the driver reversed smashing my whole driver side Iwas stated by the auto body shop that the impact had pushed the motor back and now one of the motor mount bolts is loosened now the claim adjuster states that the impact could not cause the bolt to loosen is he accurate on that?

or at the wires that conect to the middle of fan switdh the thick wiring harness should have voltage on top of plug none help

I inherited my mother's car when she died. First I noticed things left in the trunk were damp, now I find several inches of water around the spare tire and battery. Even when the car has not been driven for several weeks there is more and more water in the trunk. I noticed there was a gap where the rear antenna was and had that replaced but it did nothing to stop the water. I took it back to the dealer who said it was the rear window and then I took it to an auto glass installer and they said it is not the window. I do not have a skylight in the car either. This seems to be a flaw in the design to me. Has anyone found out what is causing this large amount of water in the spare tire/battery area?

MY traction control light comes on when the emergency brake is engaged and goes off as soon as the brake is disengaged. Anyone know what could be causing this problem?

does the head need to be repaired (valves)

my daughter bought a 2010 Cobalt. Low Traction light came on. thinking it was a tire problem, had them checked, 1 was low on air, filled it and light went off. now the light comes on periodically. contacted Chevy Customer Service at cac@chevrolet.com about the problem by e-mail. They have already called and I will speak to them on Monday. This is a scary probelem because my daughter drives on Houston freeways to get to school.

After I put the car in neutral and turn the key it starts right up, but this is a ongoing thing.

I have a 2005 colbalt with automatic transmission. When ever it gets cold out my car throttles down to the point where it seems like its going to die and then throttles back to normal, when ever I am not pressing the accelerator. Its not all the time, and it mostly occurs when ever the car is in gear.
