Just bought 2008 CHEVY AVEO with 111,700 miles,auto trans .base model with AC. FOR $1,100 . Looks like no maintenance done except oil changes ,tires and brakes. Driver door and front left fender has been changed due to wreck and I NEED TO GET ORIGINAL LOCKSET IN DRIVERS DOOR ( Pease Advise). It had 8 codes and the AIRBAG LIGHT on, hopefully I can remedy.
Items I need to do.
TIMING BELT (ORIGINAL, will replace water pump, idler and camshaft front seals while in there)
CAMSHAFT POSITIONING SENSOR ( one of the codes)
VALVE COVER GASKET (LEAKING AND SPARKPLUG insert holes full of oil)
SPARK PLUGS (ORIGINAL)
SPARK PLUG / IGNITION COIL ( ORIGINAL just for added insurance)
PLUG WIRES ( ORIGINAL- one broken, one was just probably touching plug clip but broken)
AIR INTAKE FILTER ( "VERY" DIRTY)
UPPER and LOWER RADIATOR HOSES (SWOLLEN)
NEW COOLANT RESIVIOR ( caked on junk ,dirty, "SIMPLY NASTY ),
FLUSH COOLING SYSTEM. ( very contaminated, a lot of brown rusty water and cruddy lumpy junk)
THERMOSTAT ( WHY NOT when changing hoses and cleaning)
CLEAN ENGINE BAY ( ALL cars i have "WILL" have a clean engine bay.)
NEW IN CABIN AIR FILTER.
NEAR FUTURE ITEMS;
FLUSH TRANSMISSION AND CHANGE FILTER, CHANGE BRAKE FLUID, CHANGE POWER STEERING FLUID,
DEEP CLEAN INSIDE AND OUT.
LOOK FOR WORN SUSPENSION PARTS ( seems ok for now)
Then fix little dings
START MODS.!!!!!! A MUST. IS. ADDING CRUISE CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!! Looking to make it a quieter and smoother car to drive.
I like to see how many miles I can get out of my cars.
Pics to come.
