2008 Chevy Cobalt Problems

Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 01:30 AM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 Chevy Cobalt has been acting up!
When ever I turn the key off, Its revs up for a
few seconds continuously and emits a
smoke that smells like oil sort of.  Just
wondering if anyone has heard
of/experienced this, and if they can point me
in the right direction?!

Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
