They are driving car, but I am nervous because the timing chain was just replaced. 2007 cobalt

I would like dealer to fix it.
I am scared because I just picked it up 30 mins ago from dealer.

I just wanted to know possibilities because this is the 3rd issue on my car in less than 2 weeks, so I am nervous about being scammed.

if the gauge on dash did not rise to high and car engine did not over heat , then it will be the coolant light sensor or bcm module that controls it on dash .

so the engine is okay but light coming on , problem is the car computer will shut car down or put it in limp mode when it sees over heat if sensor telling that

Originally I went in for a timing chain replacement. When I drove car out the check engine light went on. They diagnosed that as a hole in my emissions. I just drove it out and now my cooling light came on and the engine started to stall on freeway.

did it do that before chain replacement ?

is this chevy dealer or local shop ?

They sent a tow truck, the light was off when they started it, and no codes set. They checked coolant level-good and now they are driving it. I am so afraid they are scamming me because I am a young female and don't know much about the car.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it is chevy dealer and it never did this before

I understand ,I m sorry

3 possibilities

1- a coolant light sensor , around $100 repair

2- IP panel cluster connector repair for coolant light $100

3-BCM module $400

anything more than that ,take it some where else

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

If never done that before , it is related to what they did , they had to undo the coolant system to do the timing chain job repair ,

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
ok, hopefully they will be on up and up. I appreciate the knowledge transfer from you.

Unless that problem existed before , but you say it did not .

possibly also the coolant system was not bled correctly and needs re bleeding , if none of coolant system came back as bad
