Sorry for not getting back with you guys sooner but I am having so much bad luck that I don't know what to do. The cobalt still isn't going, my 4 runner that I just put a rebuilt engine in lasted about 1000 miles before blowing the head gasket. I got that repaired and now at 12,000 miles the engine is making a terrible noise and this is just getting started with my problems but I know everyone don't want to hear all the whining so back to the Cobalt. After reading your messages I raised the front tires off the ground and now they don't turn but about 1/8 of a turn before locking up. This happens in forward and reverse. You can have the engine running, transmission in drive and rotate the tires by hand with no problem but when you press the accelerator the wheels lock up. I mentioned in a previous post that I had changed the cv axle on the drivers side and the keeper wasn't on the end of the axle that goes into the transmission. The keeper still hasn't been located and i'm thinking it has moved around causing things to lock up. Do I need to pull the cv axle out again and look for the keeper or has the keeper found it's way into the transmission? When the axle was removed before I tried to look into the housing for the keeper but didn't see anything and I also ran a magnet inside the housing with no luck. Anyone have any advice on where to start? I just noticed that when the automatic transmission [front wheel drive] is placed in park, the front wheels can still be turned by hand. Is this due to the fact that both front wheels are off the ground or is this part of my problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
