My 2010 Chevy Aveo keeps stalling and dying? Any help?

Asked by Sep 18, 2016 at 10:36 PM about the 2010 Chevrolet Aveo LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2010 Chevy Aveo that I continue have stalling
problems with. This has been going on well over a year
and the dealership has seemed to not be able to figure it
out. When I'm driving it will suddenly stall and the rpm will
run high while I'm pressing on the gas doing like 60 and
then I'll let off to realign myself and it's like it resets it or if I
stomp on the gas, make sure the rpm gauge doesn't hit
the red. Sometimes while idling it will die too but during
both instances it always restarts. I've taken it to the
dealership and they first replaced Catalac Converter, they
checked the fuel pump and air intake and also did a
software update. Neither of these solutions worked. It
feels like as if when your transmission goes out and starts
to stall .  For example I'll being like 60mph my foot won't
move from gas petal and it will suddenly lose power/stall
rpm are high as if I'm forcing it to do 60mph now and then
if I let completely off the gas petal or stomp on gas it's like
it restarts or refreshes it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

That is not engine related if ur engine rpms are ramping up but car looses speed, that's the drive system. Depending on mileage, have u had ur transmission serviced

Jasmine, it sounds like your torque converter isn't working correctly, it's slipping and spiking your rpm at speed, yet slowing down mph; and then loads up and kills your engine at idle too. That really sounds like your torque converter is bad.

Here is a picture of a torque converter standard photo not actual but will look similar.

Need more information about how it starts, drives, operates. What it doesn't do is just as important as what it does. Just a lil more info please.
