Customer Question

my 2004 chevy aveo stalled and died on me the other day. We took it to a shop and it would not throw a code. I was able to get it home and then the other day when I started her she revved really high to 3000 RPMs then came back down, I was able to shift from Park to Drive but when I shifted from Drive back to park she died again.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?
Customer: Its original. I I have a small oil leak but not sure where the leak is from.
JA: Are you fixing your Aveo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like to try and fix it myself I am unsure where to start. A few suggestions I have gotten was to clean the throttle body and replace my O2 sensors. That if they are dirty it could cause my problem.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no.

You really need a scan tool to diagnose to check fuel trims, you may have a vacuum leak that is causing your problem. It could be intake gaskets or a cracked vacuum hose. Spray the engine intake and vacuum hoses with throttle cleaner and listen for a change in rpm. This indicates a vacuum leak. A scan tool that can read live data would be helpful to check fuel trims at idle. I have also seen stuck egr valves cause this problem.
