Lately all I've done with my car is drive it to/from work and school. No racing or anything of that sort. I change my fluids regularly such as oil every 3000 miles. Tires rotated every 5000. And fill it with Chevron's premium. So I think I keep decent care of my car, but I've had a problem that concerns me. Every now and then my car will act as if something is plugged up in the exhaust or fuel or electrical is shorting. This will happen randomly and for a split second, then acts like nothing happened. For example. My car was parked in idle tonight and I was outside of it when my exhaust rattled like the car backed up and then a little pressure built and then it cleared itself without raising rpm's beyond what it was idling at, though they did dip for a second. Then about 20 minutes later I'm cruising in 5th at about 65-70 mph and the car did this again. I've had a problem like this in the past on older cars, but the problem would be fixed when I replaced the coil pack or retightened a spark plug wire onto the distributor or spark plug. This car doesn't have spark plug wires and it is coil aon spark ingition. What do you guys think? A little help please. Could a coil be going out? Could I have an obstruction in my exhaust?

once is awhile (maybe about 3-4 times in past year) my car will almost start but not, and then when you try to restart it, it seems like it's flodded like to old carb'd cars. then takes about a min to start. weird. but no running issues when driving. but i do have 2.2l, so symptems may be different.

The rough idle is from the supercharger. I dont know about the stuttering problem go get your cat checked and see if its clogged. (wait that would cause a check engine light, right??)

The fact it has a chevy emblem and a supercharger is a good place to start when discussing the car's faults.

^^^Don't start up on ravenwings or you will be messing with me! I know him and have a lot of respect for him. Whether you know it or not he does a lot for you and i will defend this guy till the last breath i ever breathe because of what he does.

Raven, I need to meet up with you anyways concerning other stuff. I've been trying to get a hold of you for almost 3 weeks now. I've sent text's to your cell and PM's on here and RME's forum. I'm available for the next 3 days anytime except friday from 12.30-14.00.

Good lookin' out bro, thanks for the kind words. Just pm'd ya, just got back from Hawaii, that place is NUTS! made me wish i had my cobalt there, the rental car was terrible and the 'tuner' cars there were a joke-like something from a Need For Speed Underground game..you know, all decked out in body stickers and aluminum wings. ANYWAYS, I hope to hear from ya soon--oh! my CF trunk came in! I'll be putting it on in the spring. I'm debating whether to paint it or not. Later Bro!
