been enjoying all the postings and finally have a good one...i think.
Recently, because the alternator finally died...at 219K miles...I popped the hood for a jumped...which while it did start the car, it would not stay on...and finally saw what had being causing a weird clunking noise.
For lack of not knowing what to call it (what is it called by the way?!), it was the 'aluminum(?) shield that normally covers the 4 exhaust 'pipes' in the front of the engine. I looks like it rusted through where it bolts onto the engine block and so it fell right off...in between the engine block and the fan.
what is that thing called?
does the Aveo really need it?
if needed, where would I get a replacement?
