04 chevy aveo

Asked by Jan 31, 2017 at 03:16 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Aveo LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright so I have a 2004 chevy aveo ls with about
190,000 miles on it. About 4 weeks ago I went to
get in my car and go to work but it was dead. I tried
to jump it and had no response. A friend of mine
took a look at it and said you have no spark and
there is oil in your plugs. Ok we cleaned out the oil
and he suggested a new coil pack. Put it the new
coil pack and it did nothing. Later that night we
connected a computer to see if it was running
codes and the car started. Next day it wouldn't turn
on it would crank but wouldn't turn over. After
buying new spark plugs and wires and spraying
starter fluid in the throttle .. The car started and I
brought it to the shop. They changed a pcv valve
and did a valve cover gasket which took car of the
oil in the work plugs problem. The car drove fine
for 3 days and the check engine light came on and
the car started to give me problems again. It would
start but then shut off .. I would have to wiggle the
battery terminals in order to get it started and to
stay on. So It ended up back at the shop and I
ended up paying for a new crankshaft sensor and a
new cam shaft sensor along with new plugs and
wires since the wires for both were shot to shit.
After a new coil pack .. Spark plugs and wires ..pcv
valve .. Valve cover gasket .. Camshaft sensor ..
wires + plugs for that .. Crankshaft sensor .. Wires
+ plugs for that .. I got the car back and it drove
fine for a couple of days no problem .. Today I start
the car it shuts off .. I connect a battery charger
and it starts and runs in my driveway fine.. I drove
it to the end of my street make a turn and it shut
off on me. I waited a few mins and said hell ill try
again .. It started and I got it home. I shut it off and
I turned it back on no problem .. I let it run for 20 ..
25 mins and said ok and I turned my headlights on
and it shut back off. The fuel pump is working that
much I do know .. Please someone help me figure
this out! Help me!!!

It sounds like your alternator is not charging, when you voltage goes low it will shut the entire car off, you will need to load test it for it's out put...
