2017 Chevy Trax
I am posting here out of desperation. In the past month, I have spent over $2,300 in repair costs, but still, my car continues to have issues.
A couple months ago, my car began turning over slowly. My Sirius satellite stations also stopped working from time to time. Roughly a month after this started, my car overheated. I drove it five miles home when that occurred. Then, I had the car towed to a mechanic, who replaced the reservoir and thermostat for over $700. I drove the car home 25 miles away, and then on the following day, after about 8 mile, the car overheated again. I immediately pulled over and had it towed to a different mechanic. That shop indicated the water pump had to be replaced, so that was done for over $600. Then, I drove the car the next day about twenty miles, and on the way back home, the engine light came on again. My cheap code reader referenced the catalytic converter and 7EB codes. So, I drove my car to a third mechanic, who charged over $800 to replace the converter. On the twenty-mile drive home from the shop, the engine light came on again. So, I took it back to the same shop, and they then replaced the O2 sensor for over $200. The next day, on another short round-trip, the engine came on yet again. My code reader indicates 7EB, but I know that doesn’t really mean anything. All this time, the car has been slowly turning over. Even though I took it to the third shop twice, they never fixed the turn over issue.
Any ideas about what is going on?
