  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Been getting to know the mechanics in my area now that my Volt passed 100K miles, and the latest one noticed a leak from the oil pan gasket. They quoted $850 for the repair, including evacuating and recharging the AC. Does that sound normal? It's dripping on the driveway, so I'd like to get it...

    My Volt made it to the Scotty Kilmer channel:
  3. ? Buying, Selling, Tax Credit, Fees - Chevy Volt
    Curious what the going rate for a Gen 1 Volt might be if the HV battery is dead but everything else is good. Doing some financial planning. Thank you in advance.
  4. Want to Buy/Want to Trade
    I’m sure some of you Volt owners swapped the old ugly air deflector that scrapped over indents in the road for the new shorter design. I’m looking for the old air dam/deflector if anyone still held onto theirs that isn’t torn or too badly damaged, I’d like it. Mine is wearing out some and want...

    I’m trying to find rear axle bushing but can’t find them for the 2013 volt.
  6. Wheels, Tires, Brakes - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hello, I just recovered a Gen 1 Cadillac CTS spare tire at the junkyard. Upon further inspection at home, I see some mounting holes for the spare donut are worn in. Maybe from over tightening the bolts with pneumatic tools. Anyways, my question is - is this spare still usable in an emergency...
  7. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Blue 2013 Volt I'm not a car person and I have no intuition on how to proceed, but I hope to get some help sourcing salvage parts to install myself. Did I already pay way too much for the fender and rim? I've suffered a series of disasters this year. Most recently, my roommate had an accident...

    The Power Inverter Module (24279726) on my '12 Volt Premium has failed due to an internal coolant leak. The car will run on battery or ICE, and charge, but has a slew of code and there is coolant leaking out of the aux cable. I provided the dealer with a 'good' used module from a wrecked vehicle...
  9. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Hello, I have a 2014 volt that currently is making a loud screeching noise when I break. I begin to drive and it doesn't do it till about 15 minutes of driving. It's does it when I drive with the ICE. I charge it, but haven't driven it enough on electric to say it only does it on ICE. I hope...
  10. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Gen 1 Ampera/Volt 2015/32k miles When I press the power button, a loud hum starts about 3 seconds after. It stops if I either set the cabin heater Blower fan to 'OFF' or reduce the temperature to 'LOW'. Local Ampera (it's a UK car) Service agent changed the cabin blower motor fan (under the...
  11. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I have a 2012 volt without opt yk8, I was wondering if the volt is compatible with any 2011-2014 transmission?
  12. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    First, let me say thank you to everyone who has put a lot of time and effort into making this site what it is. As someone still stuck in the days of carbs and points, it has made the experience of owning a first-gen Volt a lot easier and enjoyable. From diagnosis of the most trivial to most...
  13. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    I couldn’t find too many videos of a Gen 1, so figured I would post some from this weekend. Mods are a Whiteline rear sway, and some BfGoodrich Comp-2 A/S tires in the stock size. I’ve had the car for about a year and it is pretty much free from the gas savings commuting to school. I have been...
  14. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Last Friday, I picked my 2014 Volt up from the dealership after having the AGM battery replaced, the cabin air filter changed, and the oil changed. By Monday, every time I start the car, I am confronted with dual warnings for Stabilitrak and Airbag service. After clearing the messages, the...

    ⚡️Is a 2016 Bolt / Volt evse/charge cord backwards compatible with the 2013 Volt? I searched but could not find any backwards compatibility information regarding using a 2016 EVSE to charge a 1st generation 2013 Volt? Thanks everyone!
  16. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey everyone, I drive a 2013 Gen1 Chevy Volt and have been having some problems with my A/C. Recently I was not getting any cold air from my eco or comfort settings. The fan still blew air, the heater still blew hot air, and the heated seats still worked. The check engine light came on the other...
  17. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 2 Chevy Volt
    I recently took my '12 to a dealer I'd been to twice before, and was informed they no longer had a Volt Tech on staff. They'd had the one, and he left. I'm assuming it was just a rough patch, and they'll have a new Tech on staff soon, but it made me wonder. Are Volt Techs being de-prioritized...
  18. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey all: Contemplating the following: • repair my 2011 - #2472 for between $3000 - $6000 depending on whether svc manager is able to approval for getting 50% discount on repair • trade in for an ICE • Trade in used Volt • Trade in for a new Volt - second opinion This is...

  20. ? Buying, Selling, Tax Credit, Fees - Chevy Volt
    When I got my Volt (Gen 1) in November 2013, gas prices were high, and it "seemed" like a no-brainer - buy a Volt. Now, though, over 3 years later, I do have a low-mileage Volt, but it's not worth a lot. In fact, I owe $18K on it, but KBB says my expected trade-in range is $9,535 to $11,306...
