  1. G1 Volt AC Compressor + Evaporator Leaks = $3,600 Fail

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    This may be the end of my 12 Volt, sadly. Just took car in for check of AC system because of some weird behavior -- sometimes very cold, sometimes not so much. Gurgling under dash. No codes or lights. Verdict = AC Evaporator core is leaking as is the compressor. They added some Freon and...

  3. NEED INPUT ASAP re: presumed failing A/C compressor

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey guys, so my car has been at the dealer for the phantom remote start issue, which they claim is now fixed, but I also asked them to replace the A/C compressor because, well frankly, it sounds like it's grinding itself to death whenever it runs when its hot outside. Granted, it is cold outside...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    About two months ago, my wife mentioned she heard a strange noise from time to time while driving. She couldn't describe the noise, but she said it didn't sound right. I had to take her car in for a coolant leak anyway, so I asked the dealer to check it out but they didn't find anything. Then it...

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt

It can be printed and stored in your glove compartment with your Owners Manual, or saved to your phone. I recommend new Volt owners try out the air...
  7. If you use the Volt air compressor/inflator tool...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I decided to use the Volt's air compressor/inflator to regularly top-off my tires. I figured it's much more convenient than driving to a gas station (which could increase the tire pressure), paying the $1 (or more), and inflating my tires. At any rate, please be aware that the built-in...
  8. Sugestion: Use A/C compressor as heat pump!

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Although I took delivery of my (leased) 2012 volt in June, and haven't driven it in winter, that many report the Volt gets significantly lower miles-per charge with the cabin heater running. What I don't understand is why GM would elect to use a resistive heating element (which are very...
