Question about 2010 Chevrolet HHR

1 Answer

2010 HHR runs rough after oil change, no power will not shift into next gearr and dies

I had an oil change done at Mineke, just there standard 3,000 mile oil. I drove maybe a mile and the engine light and the oil light came on. I pulled over in a parking lot and shut the engine down and checked the oil level three-five minutes later. there was no oil on the dipstick. drove back to Mineke. Josh (mgr) said the oild was a quart low and apoligized. They then took it for a test drive and hookes uo a scanner on it. after five minutes or so. The tech went and got another scanner and the engine light was off. I then left there parking lot and drove maybe a mile and it had no power, was idiling rough and kept wanting to die.

Take your car to a real shop, not one with pretend mechanics, and have it evaluated by a qualified mechanic for engine damage. It sounds like they either forgot to put oil in, or didn't tighten the drain plug or filter and you lost most of your oil. If damage is found, and the qualified mechanic states that the damage could be due to oil starvation, file a claim with Meineke. Be prepared for a runaround (hundreds of YouTube videos on these ripoff shops - Meineke, Jiffy Lube, etc).

Sounds like a possible fuel pump problem...When they begin to go bad they will overheat and lock up, then work fine for a while and do the same thing again. By changing the filter you lowered the flow resistance and allowed the pump to work a bit easier but still being bad, it did the same thing again. There are other things that can do this as well, but pump is most common.

Why does my HHR smoke at idle?


check the manifold gaskets, upper and lower. maybe they are bad and coolant is mixing with the oil, and burning it up and throwing it out the exhaust pipe, witch will cause it to smoke. check the oil to see if coolant is entering it. on dip stick, also check to see if coolant in recovery tank has oil in it. I had a problem with oil getting to coolant, on a 2000 malibu, changed gaskets and did a good flush. before filling it back up with coolant. No problems it run good. Good-Day!

Was the ignition switch ever recalled on the 2009 chevy cobolt


No,
Recalls for
  1. STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM. GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 CHEVROLET COBALT AND MODEL YEAR 2007-2010 PONTIAC G5 VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRIC POWER STEERING. THE DRIVER MAY EXPERIENCE A SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER STEERING ASSIST THAT COULD OCCUR AT ANY TIME WHILE DRIVING.
  2. POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:LEVER AND LINKAGE:COLUMN SHIFT. GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING 276,729 MY 2009 BUICK ENCLAVE, CHEVROLET COBALT, HHR, MALIBU, TRAVERSE, GMC ACADIA, PONTIAC G5, G6 AND SATURN AURA AND OUTLOOK PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLES SAFETY STANDARD 102, "TRANSMISSION SHIFT POSITION SEQUENCE, STARTER INTERLOCK, AND TRANSMISSION BRAKING EFFECT", AND FMVSS 114, "THEFT PROTECTION AND ROLLAWAY PREVENTION". ON SOME OF THESE VEHICLES, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CLIP MAY NOT BE FULLY ENGAGED. IF THE CLIP IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED, THE SHIFT LEVER AND THE ACTUAL POSITION OF THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT MATCH. WITH THIS CONDITION, THE DRIVE COULD MOVE THE SHIFTER TO "PARK" AND REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY, BUT THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT BE IN "PARK".
If you are having a problem with your ignition switch, repost question with full details.

My 2004 Expedition is idles rough sometimes to the point that it dies. I have never had any problem at all with this vehicle. It has almost a 100,000 miles and all that I have done is change the oil and...


Sounds like the fuel injectors are dirty. run a bottles of STP or other fuel injector cleaner in the next two tanks of gas. Also if not done before change the fuel filter inline from the tank. Or maybe change the air filter, especially if you have been driving in an area that is very dusty.If the filter is clogged or full it will restrict the flow. These are some cheap fixes. If they done work then you can have the injectors cleaned at a shop but that is a bit more expensive. I hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Mazda Tribute. Can you tell me what the recommended time is between lube and oil changes. Is it 3000 miles or 5000. Thanks


It used to be every 3 months or 3,000 miles but some manufacturers are suggesting that 5,000 miles is ok. My view is that it does not hurt the motor having more oil changes. I continue to have them done every 3,000 miles myself even if my oil life indicator has not come on. Clean oil is very important to have a engine last for many miles. There are some full synthetic oils that can go for 5,000 or 7,000 miles beteween oil changes but cost alot more than the standard oil.

Rough idling


Hi, It's either a bad sensor , idol controller, or a Vacuum leak. Check all hoses for leaks. If all is OK, then the next thing it could be is a bad intake manifold gasket. Hope that helps.
