Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Is the check engine light still on at this time? Is the car starting fine?
Thank you. It sounds like you have a failure in the ignition switch, or more commonly it is due to a failure in the ignition module located under the coil packs. If it is the module you can replace this for under $100. The ignition switch is a little harder to diagnose and fix. Did you plan on doing this yourself?
From what I understand from your description of the issue it sounded like the car turns off and has issues starting. If I am wrong can you give me a little more of a description of what is going on?
Thanks for the clarification. It sounds like you have an issue with the valve body in the transmission. Typically it will get debris built up in it or one of the solenoids will fail and cause this. Since the check engine light came on the first thing I would do is have the computer scanned for codes. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Hopefully the computer recorded the codes under history. If you can have this done and bring me any codes it would help. Otherwise the pan needs to be removed from the transmission and the valve body either removed and cleaned or replaced.
