  1. SO my front grill is speckled black because most the chrome is starting to peel off. I was curious if there was a way to repaint it or to stop it?
  2. My son's girlfriend has a 2014 that is throwing two codes: - P0693 Fan 2 control circuit low - P0128 Coolant temperature (coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature) It has a new thermostat/housing assembly (I replaced after her dad pried out the thermostat when it was stuck shut and she needed to get back to college - no parts houses in her town had a thermostat in stock) and seems to be running ok. It doesnt have a temp gauge, but checking the head temp with an IR temp gun shows about 160 near all cylinders. Seemed about right so I'm thinking new thermostat is working and engine is getting up to temp. I took a guess at that point and replaced the coolant temp sensor thinking that might be cause of P0128. I cleared the codes by disconnecting the battery but they both returned later the same day. I don't want to throw more parts at it so if someone has a service manual, would you look up those two codes (P0693 & P0128) and let me know what it says? Thanks in advance.
  3. I have a used '14 LT and recently took a look at the rear suspension. Currently I only have coil springs installed. Wondering if that is supposed to be that way. Are the rear struts an OEM addition to the 2LT or should I be taking it back to the Chevy dealer that sold me the car and try to get this fixed under some warranty issue (I still have about 6K miles left on the warranty and even though I bought it used would it be worth the try). Anyone out there already have rear shocks already installed or is this an anomaly exclusive to my car? Suggestions anyone?
  4. Hi everyone, I drive a 2014 Spark, and I am interested in purchasing a dealership-level service manual so I can do maintenance the way GM intended. Purchasing a 2014 Spark manual costs $300, but getting a 2013 Spark manual is only $200. Why is that? Also, does it make a difference if I use a 2013 manual to service a 2014 vehicle? Surely there can't be many differences between vehicles one model year apart, right? The 2013 manual is located at: http://www.helminc.com/helm/product2.asp?Make=CHV&Model=SPAR&Year=2013 The 2014 manual is located at: http://www.helminc.com/helm/product2.asp?Make=CHV&Model=SPAR&Year=2014 Thanks for the assistance, Pat
  5. First Impressions 2014 Chevy Spark LS After three days with the spark: Things I like: +Gas Mileage. Getting 38mpg average w/ ac on all the time +Looks I like guinea pig shaped hatchbacks +Space It's not cramped up front. Decent in the back. Ok storage. +Cost Can't beat it, really Things I don't like: -Slow: Jumping out into traffic is a bit scary. Takes forever to get up to speed. It's more Geo Metro than Toyota Yaris, I suppose. -Speakers: Bought some kickers to install. I don't have huge needs in the speaker dept.but the stock speakers are ridiculous. No highs, nasal mids. I suspect they're intentionally nerfed to fish for upgrades because even with a $15 gift card to walmart you can do better. Placement is poor as well: two far in front, two far in back. Sounds almost mono. -Ignition Key Angle It's not the ergonomic up/down entry. Instead, the key enters perpendicular to the ground. It's odd because you have to turn your hand unnaturally to put the key in and then bend it even more to start the thing. Really silly. -Doors: Need to be slammed to shut completely which makes you seem mad every time you leave somewhere. -Steering Wheel: It's uniform except for the bottom where a little chunk of the like soft rubber is carved out for hard plastic. During tight turns the wheel runs under your hands smooth until that part catches with a thunk! Bad design. -Horn Placement: Can't reach it with both hands on the wheel. -Interior Lighting: On the dimmest setting it lights up my car like an xmas tree. The gas gauge cluster is the worst offender. My face is bright blue to anyone passing me. The onstar panel overhead is bad as well. It doesn't dim and is distracting at night. There's probably some way to correct this in the computer. -Spare Tire There is none. Things I'm not sure of yet: -CVT: Not sure how long my manual cars would last if I shifted as spastically. Slowing down, the car has some engine breaking related to down-shift. Enough to jolt you forward. Need to get used to it, but it's rather unpredicable.
  6. 2014 Chevy Spark ditching four-speed automatic for CVT Green Car Reports / The Chevrolet Spark, the smallest Chevy sold in the U.S., will get some mechanical changes next year, according to Christi Landy, the brand's small-car marketing director. The 2014 Chevrolet Spark, which will go on sale late this year, will offer a continuously-variable transmission (CVT) in place of the current four-speed automatic. READ MORE HERE
