      04 Aveo no start.

      We just did some maintenance and repair work on our 04 Aveo, and now I can't get the thing to turn over. It cranks and wants to start, but won't fire up. We did spark plugs at the proper gap, oil change and filter, EGR valve and tube replaced, new air filter, fuel air sensor and a camshaft sensor. It would start but stall out after we changed the egr tube, so I stuck some ultra copper on there to get a better seal, and we still can't get a start.

      Why did you replace that stuff? I would try reinstalling the old parts to see what that does.

      Engine scan came back with bad EGR valve and fuel/air sensor, and the tube was snapped in half. Cause of no start was a bad plug wire, now she starts but dies out after a while. Think I need to replace the piece the EGR valve mounts to because I snapped the stud off and can't get in to drill it out.

      if you replaced the camshaft sensor, you might need to do a relearn to get it to run.

      Got it all figured out. Egr tube wasn't sealing properly, causing a huge vacuum leak.
