This car of my girlfriends has apparently be stuttering on acceleration for quite some time and I just found out after needing to drive it a few days. The car hesitates to downshift at any speed, hesitates to take off and gets 18 mpg city at an avg of 20mph. I took it to the Dealer to see if they could clean the fuel system after replacing spark plugs that were completely white even though they were only in there 40k miles or so and cleaned the throttle body(a notorious cobalt problem) by taking it off and doing my best to wipe it down with a rag and throttle body cleaner. The GM Top Engine Cleaner they used worked great for one tank of gas which also had seafoam in it, then upon the next fill up the very consistent and annoying misfires and hesitation under 2k rpms reappeared. Over 2k the hesitation is much less than what it was but still there sometimes. Im hesitant to take it back to the Dealer so I called Firestone. They said the complete cleaning will cost 140 dollars and I need to leave it there all day so they can really evaluate it. Could someone please tell me some specifics about their service to bring up if I decide to make that appointment and have it "fully cleaned" according to them and is it likely the carbon build up or something more? Any answers or advice are appreciated.

Also, on another note is Firestones gas tank fuel system cleaner better than say lucas oils or techron?

Thanks very much

My whole car is shaking (not the steering wheel)only when I accelerating 40- 50 mph. It gets worse if I am going up a hill. If I'm going faster than 50Mph not as bad but, still has a slight vibration.
I've had new tires put on and balance.
Had an alignment done
Replaced the bad driver side wheel bearing and rear shocks.
No srvice lights are on.
Taking it to several different places no one seems to know what the problem is.

I had a 2010 Chevy Cobalt for 4 years and on January 10,2016. My car started up fine and then as I drove it the head lights dimmed. I continued to drive it because it seemed fine. Then every light in the car started to flash and then the car stalled and died. Then the car caught fire and I lost my car and everything. I had gotten the recall on the ignition switch fixed but I had no idea that there where other recalls on my car that had needed to be fixed. Because the check engine light was always on. Then my gas gauge always read full when it was not always full or it would say it was empty and still had stuff in it.
