2/1/2011 - LOVELAND, OH
2006 CHEVY HHR. CAR WILL JERK LIKE YOU REALIZED THE CLUTCH TOO FAST, HOWEVER IT IS AN AUTOMATIC THEN STALL. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITH IN THE LAST 2 YEARS. ON 1/27/10 THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. TOOK CAR TO THE SHOP, AFTER HAVING A COMPLETE TUNE UP, IGNITION MODULE CHANGE AND A COIL CHANGE THE CAR WILL NO LONGER STAY STARTED UNLESS YOU ARE GIVING THE GAS PEDAL CONSTANT CONTACT. THE CODE COMING UP SAYS IT'S A MISFIRING IN THE CYLINDER BUT THE SHOP CAN NOT FIND THAT. THERE IS OIL IN THE INTAKE BUT NO WATER IN THE OIL. I'M SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS IN PARTS ONLY ALREADY. THE CAR IS NOT DRIVABLE. IT WILL NOT DRIVE IN REVERSE WITHOUT HEAVY PRESSURE ON THE GAS WHILE TRYING TO BRAKE WITH YOUR LEFT FOOT AND LOOK TO DRIVE IT BACKWARDS.
