  1. 2008 Cobalt 2.2 - Stalls when slowing down / coming to a stop

    Problems and Service
    Hello! Disclaimer, not a mechanic. Just trying to get a bit more life from my trusty Cobalt since now is not a great time to be investing in a new car. Basically, whenever I'm coming to a stop the speedometer may jump up to 30-40mph and the RPMs will spike. More often than not the car stalls...
  2. P0121 and P0449

    Problems and Service
    I have a 2006 LS 2.2 Coupe and for the past year my car has stalled on and off when I come to stop lights or stop signs. It happened so inconsistently I didn't really worry about it.

  5. Cleaning the Throttle Body?

    Problems and Service
    If I remove my throttle body to clean, is it safe to use carb cleaner? My other question is will it need to be reprogrammed if I take it off and clean it? What precautions should I take while removing it and cleaning it? I hate to mess my car up! I am a broke High school student!
  6. What is Normal Idle for A 2007 5-Speed LS???????????

    Problems and Service

But when i stop, it drops it down to 800 rpm and keeps it rock steady. No higher, no lower. But when the AC is on, when i take it out of gear into...
