Is the garage correct? Is there an inexpensive fix? Will the car just stop running at some time?
Leo at the shipyard
Took the Vivant to another Chevrolet dealer and they immediately knew what the problem was as it is common for this car.
On the top of the gas tank there is a vacuum control valve that was stuck.
All that was required was to remove the gas tank and clean/ renew the valve.
Do not know if it is a manual or electric operated unit. Cost was about
$125. The $900 original estimate was to replace the entire gas tank assembly
and fuel lines to the motor. A real rip off by a Chevrolet garage.
have the same problem?
