problem #1

Oct 242005

Sonoma 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,300 miles
Check engine light on was told air injector valve oper/solenoid replace. Drove 800 miles, took emissions test failed. Showed no codes. Was told by tech to try driving 100 miles. Or take to dealer, took to dealership charged diagnostic fee. Was told by them to drive 100 miles. Drove 150 returned next day. Still the codes are not showing. Want me to drive another 150 miles. Two codes are not showing. Took back to emissions provider, they showed me it was the 02 sensor and last test on the obd computer. I don't remember the name. Also please note my radio froze again playing on 1 station and showing another. Showed it to tech today. And also my brakes still giving same problem. ABS brakes still pulling vehicle. Bought new tires to help with the traction. But problem still same. Fuel was about 12 miles per gal. How many miles do I have to drive in order for the computer on the vehicle to respond. I've driven over 1000 (one thousand) since Friday 10-21-05. What a lemon! I will be returning back to the dealership (chev) tomorrow after driving 150 miles. My daytime light still goes out when using turn signals.
