Hello. 2015 Chevy sonic ltz.
Three weeks ago the water pump was replaced by the dealer. The overflow was replaced a week later. Battery is New and installed four days ago. Was running fine
Friday through Sunday. Monday I got on my car,
And felt a stutter and loss of power not long into drive. Disappeared and drove fine. Later going up a hill, it chucked like it was out of gas, nearly stalled on the hill. Check engine light is on. Drove around town.
Went on freeway.
On slow upgrade car lost power, almost stalled I had to pull off of freeway and it regained power and drive again and drive home. Feels like it's out of gas, full tank. Friday and Saturday night the traction lights did come
On briefly on freeway or near a sharp braking but have not come on since.

This car has only been owned for a year and a half, but I drive a lot. It has 104,000 miles. I bought it at 40,000. Now not covered under warranty. I am recruiting a mechanic who can give this car extra special care and attention. It's had issues from the first month.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Right now I am very concerned as I read the reports from Chevy sonic. I would like to know everything I must look at, in this case, because it seems people have gotten their fuel systems in order and continue to have problems (same/large) months later.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
It had an oil change one month ago. New battery, new water pump system. It is now stalling on hills,
Stalling or losing power sporadically and the traction lights came on prior.

Hi it was the o 2 sensor but this car has had many many issues in the year and a half I bought it. I took it to the dealer. They replaced the o 2 sensor. But it's still feeling like it's not picking up at 22 mph, feels like it's still going at 16. Friend said it could be the timing belt. This has been solved, thank you ! I cancelled the subscription just because o need an answer quick and it will be better to find a human mechanic I can have diagnos in person.
