problem #2

Nov 012007

Cobalt SS S/C 2.0L 4 cyl Supercharge

  • Manual transmission
  • 33,000 miles

This problem is related to my low coolant light. I have brought the car in at least five times for the low coolant problem, and low coolant light illuminated. They changed out the head gasket, and filled the coolant 3 times. I noticed for some time that the engine would never get above 130 degrees or so. Well I live in MI and this had been happening over the summer, so I hadn't used the heat. When the first frost hit around NOV or so I turned the heat on. I had a definite strong anti-freeze smell which made me nauseas, and the heat never got hot in the car. The car was leaking anti-freeze/coolant somewhere in the heater core. They replaced the thermostat, heater core, and blower motor, because along with the lack of heat and strong smell, the blower motor was making a loud noise when on. They "fixed" it, but the heat still has much to be desired.
