I know so little about cars, it's irritating, but I need some help. I was driving quite normally and on my dash I get warning lights for my ABS and traction control. I read somewhere that it's still driveable, so I drive it for a few more days. All of the sudden, a few days ago I try accelerating and it barely makes it past 40mph and I get a loud hissing coming from under the hood. I have no idea what the **** this means, but I haven't driven it since. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? I scheduled an appointment to have it checked with a Chevy dealership because I have a good warranty, but they can't see me for two weeks, and I need a car.

Just go straight to the dealer; do not pass go, do not collect $200.
OP stated that the dealership couldn't get him in for 2 weeks.


We do have a Chevy Customer Care account that is active, you could try to get with them to get into your dealership earlier. Just a thought.

Well I know that, but it's not something he should really be driving.

Until the OP gets his other concerns resolved (another thread....'How screwed am I') there is no point in speculating about this concern.

Just to give an update. My turbo was completely shot. The valve cover also. They replaced both of them under warranty. The thing is, when I got this car a year ago, there would always be a slight lag around 12mph, like a gear shift, but very noticeable. I was told by many people it's supposed to do that so I dealt with it. After they replaced my turbo, that lag is completely gone. Looks like this car was a ticking time bomb with the turbo since I had it.
