  2. ? Buying, Selling, Tax Credit, Fees - Chevy Volt
    Test drove a 2013 with 139k miles. I was surprised at how loud the engine was when it kicked on during the test drive, and how I could feel the vibration through the wheel and seat. I took a video with the hood open to capture the sound and uploaded it to YouTube here...

    I'm doing an engine swap in my 2012 ,i cant remove the torque dampener to get it out of the car and was wondering if removing the crank pulley is the right thing to do and if i need to do anything special to get it out
  4. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    I read through the user manual and talked to the service tech at the dealer and could not find an explanation of this icon which is on the right side of the display in the Classic Enhanced configuration:
  5. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    First, I wonder if the steering wheel is supposed to have some level of play in it or not? With the car off and thus no steering assist, I can wiggle the wheel and it feels like it's got actual slack, not just the usual play of the tires at the "resting position." I'm still able to control the...
  6. Propulsion Systems - Chevy Volt
    Gen II Volts don't tell us much about what is happening in our 1.5L L3A engines when they start to produce KW to power the drive system. I was curious so I connected a monitor to the OBD port and generated a file that included the engine speed and the mass airflow over a period of about ten...

    I've had my Volt for a few months now. My daily commute is 37 miles total. My question is does the volt start the ICE once and a while if it is never run? I mean if I drive to and from work for years then suddenly have a situation where I will run the vehicle out of charge and need the engine to...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    I bought a 2017 Volt last week to replace a 2013 I've had for nearly 5 years. It's a nice upgrade, particularly the longer EV range, improved efficiency, LED lighting, and improved interior/user interface (yay, actual buttons). It drives great on electric, but on gas.....not so much. The gas...
  9. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    I drove my new 2018 Chevy Volt today for a longer trip than normal. In particular, I drove it for about 200 km. The first 95 km (approx.) was completely driven using EV. I let the charge drop to zero to see how the gasoline engine would perform. I was disappointed to find that I used about...
  10. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Found out from GM I have a blown head gasket and a leaking rear main on my GEN1 Volt. GM wanted $3300 just to do the Head gasket. I located a totaled Volt near near that has a completely crushed rear end with 37,621 on the OD. I paid ($538.75) for the motor on the spot and will be going to pick...
  11. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I own a 2014 Volt with 55K miles on it, about 90% are electric miles. I have aftermarket extended warrantee for up to 5 years. I normally trade in cars at 4 years, but I know that Prius' batteries have shown long life and I am wondering how many years I might be able to hang on to the Volt...
  12. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 2 Chevy Volt
    Hi! Just purchased a used 2016 Volt and it's great. But I've noticed when it's in Hold Mode or even more so when the battery is completely depleted and I'm forced to use gas, I've noticed the loss of power a bit as if it's in too high of a gear sometimes. It's the equivalent feeling of if you...

    I recently got a repair quote from the Dealership. My 2 and 4 cylinders are misfiring. Needs new coil pack and the throttle body cleaned with new sparkplugs. My question is: How does one start and stop the engine on demand while it sitting in the garage? Is there a switch you can...

    I believe this may be a common topic , however, I would like to get an expert opinion on this: I recently got a 2015 Chevy Volt. It runs very smooth in EV mode. No complaints there. As soon as car goes in gas mode, drive is very bad. It feels like car is getting pulled. Engine makes a lot of...

    Sorry if this has been addressed prior, but what is the best way to clean under the hood? Everything is pretty dusty and dirty. I couldn't find a thread that talks about this.
  16. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    Well, I just got home after my car was parked outside in -18 to -21C for nearly 10 hours. I wasn't expecting the battery to be locked out so easily (people quoted 'days' for this kind of thing to happen), but instead of normal ERDTT to greet me (which I hate enough as it is), the car hesitated...

    I hadn't seen this mentioned before and didn't get any hits when I searched, so I figured I'd check to see if anyone else has experienced this glitch. I left to run an errand this morning with a full charge. When I turned my car off, I did a double-take as I realized the energy usage screen...

    2012 Volt - Check Engine Light and Propulsion Power is Reduced For about the sixth or seventh time in the past year, charging was interrupted and the check engine light appeared in our 2012 Volt. On the drive home, my wife connected to OnStar and they advised of two error codes: P1E98 - High...

    Just leased a new 2014 Volt last Friday night and took it for a shakeout ride the next day. At about the 40-mile mark, when the ICE kicked in, I began to notice an industrial, acrid odor (like a car fire). We were on the highway in stop-and-go traffic (on the Cross Bronx Expressway headed to the...

    Hi, This might be a rumour, secret or I've misunderstood it lol. When driving over 70mph in a Volt, does the gas engine generator link to the wheels for added acceleration? Thanks.
