2006 Chevrolet Cobalt from North America
If it wouldn't stall I would like it
Driving along at about 25-30, the engine stalled, went dead! hoped it was a fluke so I ignored it, but three days later it happened again three times on the way home from work. the dealer said they couldnt tell what caused it. anybody have this problem corrected or know its source?
Otherwise I like the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Well this happened to my car and GM dealers are not mechanic's they are service Tech's, they do what the computer tell them too. I did the research and found that my injectors where done and after GM replaced them my car started to stall on start up not while driving. I figured it out there is a electronic check valve in the gas tank that get a pressure build up and basically pressurized the tank giving no flow to the injectors. so about $200 cdn and an hour under the car and BINGO no more stalling.
NOTE: disconnect battery from trunk not engine bay, the power to the ECM has to be off for at least 1 hour to re cal.
Hope this helps.
