I am selling it. The sunroof will not close electronically. I had it closed manually. When I sell it, I will either have it fixed or hopefully offer to subtract that from the asking price. Can you give an approximate cost from a very simple problem to something large such as replacing the motor?

I have done dozens of brake jobs on Chevrolets and my 2011 HHR rear brakes the hold down springs are so strong I can't remove them to replace the brake shoes. Is there a special tool for this?

when starting engine when after sitting for a long pereiod of time engine start just fine, but after engine has beens shut down after becoming warmed up it only seems to be running on only two cylinders when restarted. it has a 2.2 engine.

Driver door lock does not disengage, when i put it in drive it will engage .

It doesn't happen every time. The shifter button only goes in half way. I need to know if it could be the brake pedal sensor or the shifter itself.
Happens more often when the weather is cooler. I think this has nothing to do with it, but my daughter insisted that I mention it.
Your opinion or recommendation will be much appreciated.

Bought the car from my dad and this happened to him also. He took it in and they couldn't find a solution.
The rear tail lights will come on without pushing on the brakes and then when I do press lightly on the breaks they won't come on. If I apply the brakes hard the break light will come on. Often when this occurs the traction control light comes on also. This is a random problem and it's been difficult for the mechanics to find the problem. Is this a short in the wiring? And if the mechanics can't fix it am I still responsible a bill???

It only does it once in a while but even when I'm sitting at an incline it won't move. It only does it in reverse not drive. When it does finally back up it jumps really bad but then it's fine.

Can the power steering crack the panel box.
