    • I have 92000 kms on my 2016 cvt and the only thing I replaced was a right sway bar link
    • I have been tinkering with my idle for reasons that aren't relevant to your situation but the troubleshooting should translate. Your issue is either related to air, fuel,spark, or some combination of those.  Air I would consider cleaning your mass air flow sensor and replace the intake filter if it hasn't been recently.    Fuel Sounds like everything is stock for the fuel system so I would assume if it is fuel related it is either injector or O2 sensor related. If you don't have a check engine light, I wouldn't suspect an O2 sensor issue but I wouldn't rule it out. For injectors, I'd just buy a bottle of injector cleaner and see if your issue goes away.   Spark You could replace spark plugs or check the connections and wires for any issues. You could also check the gap on the spark plugs as well. From what you are describing, I lean more towards an air or fuel issue but that is just one man's opinion.   Hopefully, my rant helps you in some way. The troubleshooting above would cost very little and still be good maintenance if nothing else.
    • Watch YouTube video, remove red gasket from big plastic piece. A new one is on the bulb
    • Well, I have spark 2010 M300  1.0 , European, and I never tried to locate the filter myself,  but was reading and understood it was located in the fuel tank. Now I have 60.000 miles and fuel filter was never replayed so far.  hope it helps.. Or at least leads to right direction...  
    • Hi guys, My 2010 Spark has now 97.000 km (60.000 miles) 16V 1,0 50 KW (68 HP), guess it is not very HIGH Millage,but it was serving me pretty well until now. have a IDLE problem..Maybe someone can help with advice.   - Changed front brake pads at about 60.000 KM. -Changed  coolant twice  (after 5 years and after changing the water pump? -Changed Battery  after 7 years,(Was still usable but leaking acid) at 70.000 km changed water pump belt and there is also another belt .. -At 90.000 km changed water pump and belt tensioner (due to worn bearings)   Regular service after about 10.000 km , original GM 5W30 oil used. ) Does not burn any oil in 10.000-12.000 km interval.    I have a problem with IDLE  sometimes, (runs rough i would say missfires)I t happens mostly  when the engine has not cooled down completely after short stay . or after t longer stay at traffic light.. Was mention that during regular maintenance but they did not solve the problem. Has anyone had the similar problem with Chevy Spark ? 2010-2013?

    • Guest Chevy spark
      If you stick your finger in the hole where the latch sits from inside the car there is a tiny black lever in there lift it up it will release the trunk. That’s how I have to open mine now because it won’t open any other way anymore 
    • Being this thread is almost a year old I am sure he either got it fixed or traded it off lol.
