While starting to drive the vehicle a gushing water sound is coming from behing the dash.
WHILE DRIVING MY CHEVY Colorado TODAY, I NOTICED THERE WAS SEVERAL TIMES IT WOULD SHUDDER WHEN ACCELERATING, AND GOING UP HILLS. THIS OCCURRED WHILE DRIVING 40MPH - 60 MPH. IT FEELS LIKE I'M GOING OVER RUMBLE STRIPS WHILE DRIVING. I WILL BE CONTACTING THE DEALER AND TRY TO GET THIS ISSUE FIXED.
The ignition key won't release at times, and has been happening for months now. The engine will turn off, but some accessories remain on. Sometimes i can fiddle with the key or the shift lever, but in a worse case i need to disconnect a battery cable, take the key out, and reconnect the battery. A dealer examination said it was some kind of switch malfunctioning and it would cost over $300. Gm/chevrolet only offered $10 reduction. Many people apparently are having this problem.
