  1. I’m at my wits end with my 2015 Chevrolet Spark. I’m just going to list the issues I’ve had and the response I’ve received from our local dealership. 3 times Spark has accelerated. Sitting at stoplight, light turns green, I press thengas petal and Spark revs to 5,000 RPM’s at take off. I press the brake petal over and over and nothing. I cannot stop the car, not slow it down. Taken in to dealer and I’m always told nobody else has ever had the problem and they cannot recreate it. I consider myself very lucky that the episodes have lasted only 5-7 seconds and I haven’t wrecked into anyone. They always think my gas petal is stuck on the floor mat. I have the heavy black rubber mats and that is not what is happening. Next, these issues started this month: left me stranded 4 times. Anti left activates by itself and disables my car. Now, I have cranked it at 3 separate times and I watch the left turn signal turn on, then the right, then the hazards and last the traction control turns off. This happens as soon as I crank it and I just watch it happen. The last time, the windshield wipers came on also. I bought a car with a warranty so I felt safe and covered. I have children and I would never let my teens drive this car. When you take off, there is such a lag in the “get up and go”, that planning is highly necessary when driving this car. I have never felt such anxiety when driving a “new” car. My dealership seems to just want to get me out the door, and don’t seem to be concerned when I show up crying and scared of this car. I have another appointment tomorrow with them, but I know it will be the same answer as always and lack of concern. All these issues are intermittent, so you just feel like a sitting duck waiting for these things to occur. I don’t know what to do.
  2. So currently I have a 2008 Pontiac g5. It's been very reliable haven't had many issues..just normal stuff. Well long story short I'm moving to Maine soon and was thinking about getting a newer car and was interested in a 2013 spark. It has 72k miles on it and was wondering what everyone's opinion would be? It's a manual so I'm guessing it should be better than the CVT I've seen a lot of negative. My Pontiac has been reliable as hell, 163k miles, bought it at 150k (I'm a Pontiac fan the high miles didn't scare me) but I know colder climate can be a little more harsh so im torn between keeping it or upgrading a bit. Opinions?
  3. I have a 2013 chevy spark it's still under warranty so I cannot change the alternator I gotta keep it otherwise I would be getting a high output alternator but I cannot get it cuz it would void the warranty I was gonna get a optima deep cycle 34r battery I got a kicker 400watt amplifier and one alpine type r in a ported box if I got that deep cycle battery would it be fine and would my car be able to handle it? Or would it fry my battery or alternator or possibly both of them?
  4. I bought a interior light kit thinking I'd be able to install this by myself. I, unfortunately, am very untrained in working on cars. (Expect I know next to nothing). I have a volt meter (I'm not sure the actual name). I would like to know a dummy's guide on how to find the wires I need and/or what fuse to use. I have a Chevy Spark LS and I need a 12v source for my lights. I've been looking at a lot of references and I haven't been able to find out where the wires are and what I should do to them. I don't want to blindly strip wires or whatever (which is what I am understanding needs to happen?) Any and all help is greatly appreciated, pictures help a lot. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hey Guys. Just got done installing my new intake in my car! Great News! Its amazing! Actually gained 19HP! per bluthtooth OBD reader (poor mans dyno) anyway here are some pics, Let me know what you think! (also im having a issue, hoping someone with experience can help out. With my MAF pluged in im having some idle issues. Ive cleaned my MAF sensor with CRC with no luck. So anyone has a good pointer how to fix this please help. And, until I get the fix is it okay to run without the MAF sensor in???(witch it runs amazing without it plugged in) I assume the ECU has default settings it goes to when something isnt working like that. Thanks again!
  6. Good morning, I am having issues with my power windows not going up and harldy going down. I'd rather have them up since I live in Florida and we tend to have a lot of rain! Here's the situation: My back passenger window got stuck one day in the down position. I jiggled the driver switches a bit and it rolled back up. Eventually this was happening to all 4 windows. Now they will not go back up, but will go down occassionally if I hit the switch. I am getting the run around from my dealership. I think it's a loose wire or the switch. How do I take the panel off, I see under the door handle there's a place where I can unscrew, but where else. And, what is your opinion: loose wiring or swtich? It's a 2013 Spark with 47,500 miles (so, out of warranty). What is an estimated cost to fix this? Thanks for any guidance and help I can receive on here ~Jessy
  7. Out of curiosity, are there any musicians in here?? I know I can't be the only one in the forums. If you are, share! :D I play 7 & 8 string guitars, and do the screaming (and some singing) for the southern California local band, Tragic End Soundcloud link to our free streaming album -> https://soundcloud.com/travis-royer/sets/tragic-end-new-beginning Band profile -> http://www.facebook.com/TragicEndBand
  8. So it was suggested that I share my experience with Plasti Dipping my wheels. In short, I only needed one can for all four tires; 6 coats each. They look great! Highly impressed with that stuff. I removed all 4 wheels and it took me around an hour (10 minutes for each coat to dry). My car is already black, so I didn't dip anything other than the wheels. I may grab some red Plasti Dip, and see how turns out against my car's finish; but we'll see. Other than the wheels, I cut some black vinyl to cover the gold bowties on front and back. Looks super clean now. I added a new shift knob, and installed a blue LED dome light. Below are the images of what I've done this morning. My car lifted, wheels removed, and bowtie vinyled Back bowtie vinyled 2 coats of Plasti Dip 4 coats... Finished Shift Knob - AutoZone special lol And last, but not least; the dome light If you're wanting to know how I removed the OEM shift knob, I made a thread about it here: http://chevysparkforum.com/topic/1285-chevy-spark-shift-knob-removal-instructions/
