I have a 2007 Chevy HHR, the air intake hose has a rip in it, will that mess with my traction control? The light keeps coming on and when I push on the gas the car kicks a little. It happens all the time.

it started when i was stuck on ice and snow in my driveway and the front right wheel lost traction on ice...

It sounds like there is a hole around the engine that makes this really loud roar when driving any possibilities of what that could be?

it also vibrates and drink gas

Auto lights won't come on

Was working last night, but not 2 day

When I cut my air or A/C on, it only blows when I set it to the max setting. When I turn the switch down, no air or anything blows at all. I need to know if this is a fuse problem or what ?

Also the service ESC light is on now and it says service traction. The engine light is also on.

I know I have gas. I need to know if the sensor will cut car off if it is reporting empty when I know gas is in there. I had a repair of my brake vacuum price and it may have affected the sensor on my gas gauge and oil life ( just had oil. Hange). Will it stop my car from going if it says empty but I know I have at least 200 miles range left in the tank. I need to travel to get to my mechanic.

Why does it shut off while driving.

I'm trying to get an insurance quote, and the mice ate my owner's manual

Has there been a exhaust recall

Fuse is good. Fresh air/closed switches don't work

The lights on the dashboard all work- but none of the needles are moving at all- any help?

seem lie my Chevy her is taking longer to shift into 2nd gear the rpm's seem a little high to me.Also its getting where when I turn off the car I have to fiddle with the key it doesn't want to come out!

I jumpstarted my 2009 hhr and after I did that my car won't turn on. I checked the fuses and some of them are not working

When you trying to hit 70mph feel as if you are flooring it to get it to go

my power steering stopped working so I checked my oil and it was extremely low

Steering code is coming on intermittently. It seems like this could be a different issue than the eps motor. It's not blowing fuses, so I'm beginning to suspect the tourk sensor or possibly a 10 year old battery that may not be up to speck but still runs the car. Any comments? This is a 2007 HHR and has never been worked on for anything.

Part missing on the shifter is the place your finger goes to press the exterior button. Part #3 on listed items of shifter. Dealer said I must buy the entire shifter, and it will take 1 /12 hours for them to replace. I would like to do it myself - Instructions available?

Show me the power steering unit on 2006 hhr

2009, 77000 miles . Check engine light is on , but it drives perfect .

The service esc/traction light started coming on after I had my cam sensors and timing change done a few weeks ago, The esc/traction light came on yesterday and today. but the car has been driving ruff with a high idle. I have never had any problem with this car since I bought it 4/2012 with 35000 miles on it. Now it has 100531 miles on it. I just really want to know if this is a fixable problem or just get rid of the car. Will accept sound advice.. Thanks inadvance for your input.

When I am driving my car has a humming noise coming from under the hood and also when I stop for a light I can can still hear the noise

Will it damage the car if I drive it?

I have replaced the partner side head light bulb with 2 New ones and still the light won't turn on, when same bulbs are tried on the driver side they work, what can I do? My a/c all of a sudden started blowing nothing but hot air. The change was one day to the next, can someone help me please?

You have to hold signal arm in a certain position to keep the signal on.

This happens when in drive at a red light or in park

When exiting the car, the chime doesn't work if you forget the key in the ignition, or leave the headlights on. Also, if you don't have on your seat belt.

Yesterday morning it was a balmy 9 degrees when I went to work, I went outside to start my car and it would not turn over. It worked just perfect the night before, the lights (interior and exterior) were on, radio on, everything was lighting up fine. It would make sounds like it was trying to turn over but never did. Finally about 10 minutes of messing around I got it to start but it was very loud almost gas lawn mower or stock car sounding and the exhaust pipe was just shaking. It shakes awful when sitting still (in the drive, at a light) but not when the car is in motion and when I hit the gas it hesitates to accelerate and does so at a very slow rate and the RPMs shoot up. It does smell of exhaust fumes but also there is a burning smell similar to burnt rubber you can smell from the outside of the car. What could this be? She was fine then not even 24 hours later virtually falling apart.
