why does my 2005 chevy cobalt stall? the rpm reaches to 4 and then kicks in what's the problem?
Does it stall or just not rev any higher?
i guess it just stalls when the rpm goes to 4 it kicks in to normal speed and rpm goes back down to2.But my check engine light is on
Does this bulletn from GM sound like what you have going on?
