  1. Yesterday
  2. Here is a picture of the film found on the air intake hose, also there was some thick black gunk in the air filter. Is this oil or just dirt?
  3. General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) today announced that Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”), a leading independent proxy advisory firm, has recommended that GM shareholders vote FOR ALL of the Board’s nominees and AGAINST the Greenlight proposal at the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on June 6, 2017. Glass Lewis, another leading independent proxy advisory firm, had previously issued similar recommendations in favor of ALL GM Board nominees and AGAINST the Greenlight proposal.

  4. Last week
  5. Thanks for the heads-up on this! I assume we will be getting notices in the mail? Edit: Never mind, I see a remedy is not available at this time.
  6. Thanks for pointing that out. I did some searching yesterday for a harness adapter and really couldn't come up with anything. I'll keep looking, hopefully, Crutchfield will have something before too much longer. The stereo honestly isn't too bad, I would just like a little more bass, nothing loud or obnoxious. Looking at some of the low profile units that could go under a seat or in the cargo area.

  8. Depends a bit on the lope of the idle. I'm a Mustang guy so I'm around a lot of them that are straight piped. An old school fox body 5.0 cammed and straight piped sounds amazing. As well as any LS engine that is cammed. Most 4 or 6 cylinder cars I'd say sound meh when loud, but that would be because of less depth and a different firing order. The lope is really what makes it sound good when straight piped. I don't think a Spark would sound good straight piped, though. Only 4 cylinder exhaust sound I really like is the Subarus with the unequal length headers.
  9. Hello Fellow Spark Owners! I just found out today that a recall was in effect by the NHTSA for the 2016-2017 chevrolet spark regarding the front passenger airbag deployment (Canada and US only).

  10. I think it may not work... doesnt seem like the newer mylink unit has a 44pin plug on it.
  11. Only turbo cars sound good without mufflers, naturally aspirated engines and supercharged engines most sound like ass and are really too loud without a muffler.
  12. "These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves. The Duramax Diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra comply with all U.S. EPA and CARB emissions regulations." View the full article
  13. I picked up a front set and rear set of the Weathertech mats and love them. They should help keep the carpet in good shape. Easy to clean and they look great in the car.
  14. I see some people on this forum talking about how they deleted the muffler and just went straight pipe. I'm wondering how this sounds and if anyone has a video for reference? Also I have a 2016 model so it would be nice if you had it the way it sounds on the new model Spark.
  15. Sent link for wrong product.
  16. Doesn't look that bad, so definitely fixable. Now being that the value of the car is very low its tough to say whether or not they will total it. It will only take about $3,000-4,000 in damage to total it, which is really low.
  17. Yep, today for some reason it was in the 60s. Car responded amazingly today. So very hit or miss.
  18. Hey, you're not too far from me. Visalia here. But I turned on this morning with the AC on the highest and drove all the way to work without any noticeable hesitation. That's the only thing that bugs me; one day it seems fine, the next is runs like a pile. This is what makes it so hard to prove issues when taking it to the dealership.
  19. GMC is elevating the 2018 Yukon Denali lineup with styling and trim enhancements, as well as a new, advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. View the full article
  20. I'll have to see how it reacts over summer. Sacramento summers are pretty hot, and the car will be sitting outside so I won't have the luxury of keeping it cool indoors. It seems to do it more when the car itself is hot after sitting outside, less so when it sits in the shade. If I do ever get the garage its the Mustang that goes in it, that doesn't have air conditioning hahaha.
  21. I had that transmission reprogram done as well. I had no issue until the weather started warming up and I began running the AC. I agree. This car is too dangerous, for those that are having the issues and the dealer just saying it's "normal operation".
  22. Sorry to bring back old thread, didn't want to start a whole new one describing the exact same issue I'm having. I'm also having Tanya's issues. I did go ahead and replace both belts(serpentine and AC belt) and now the belt chirping noise is gone. But now the car still does shift oddly/hesitate. Went ahead and replaced the spark plugs, no resolve took to mechanic, they drove and were able to find cylinder 1 and 4 slight misfire but no engine code. Unable to determine issue took to dealership, unable to replicate issue and also went on a ride with one of their mechanic and car wouldn't hesitate(my luck) Dealership told me to keep driving until I get an engine code to pop up and after just getting back from driving for an hour, still no engine code Anyone have this issue/know of a fix? thank you
  23. I always drive with the air on, whether its just neutral temperature on speed 1, all the way on heat, or all the way on max AC, so it is very odd that it would start doing it now. I had my car sitting in the shade today, and it did not lag as bad as before. So it seems that when the car itself is really hot it does it. If this is a normal thing I for sure am selling the car after college. The amount of lag is frankly too dangerous to drive with. My Mustang's manual transmission with synchros going out is easier to deal with than this CVT.
  24. If I remember right some of the 13's had issues with the re-circulation flap opening and closing repeatedly making a knocking sound. That flap sits right behind the glovebox. As far as the coolant loss I agree with Tozzi that its probably the coolant tank.
  25. Blower speed has nothing to do with this. If the blower is on and you have the AC button pushed then the AC is fully working. Same with the defroster. It does cycle on and off but its not variable. The AC compressor is either on or off. If you have the fan turned down low thinking you arent taxing the system then you are just sweating for nothing. Plus this is hard on the blower motor resistor as it builds much more heat on the lower speeds. My bet is that the AC is causing your issues. Mine does something similar. You just have to learn to deal with it.
  26. I am wanting to add a small powered subwoofer to my 2017 Spark LS (has the four speakers all up front). I would like to use speaker level inputs on the amp - anyone know a good place to access the speaker wires? Am I going to have to pull the interior part of the door off to get to the speaker wires? If so I may as well go ahead and replace the stock speakers while I am in there. Thanks!
