Hi, After my recent cleanup, I put it on idling as I am not driving it much. Just plugged OBD2 adaptor and this time it gave 2 error code (1st time in 3 yrs). P0132, P0138 - O2 sensor high voltage (sensor1 &2). I am worried as I am not good with engine and transmission part. Just to add, for last 2 -3 weeks when I idle it, it smell like gas for while and when I checked in bonnet nothing found or smelled. Can someone suggest me what to do next? And if, this is minor or major issue?
If there are any Spark LS owners out there looking to upgrade the radio to the Spark/Sonic My Link 7" touchscreen then I have some information to pass along about getting it unlocked. After trying to have the local dealer unlock it and told they couldn't get anything to work I began searching around for some of these companies that unlock the GM theft lock. After a long search and being told it was pretty much impossible I did find one guy who does this and after his researching, determination and hard work he got the radio unlocked and works perfectly in my LS. I will upload pics soon. He can be found on eBay and his website is www.tvandnav2go.com. He is one if not the only one who can currently unlock these radios and does so in a reasonable turn around time. Pass the word and thank you.
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.
