I took my 2013 eco (1.4l turbo) into the dealer last week for a CEL. They replaced an evap solenoid for $220 labor plus $30 for the part, unfortunately not under the power train warranty (I'm at 94000). The light came back a couple days later. I've tried cleaning the MAF and checked the pins with an Ohm meter. Two pins were OL, but the rest showed some resistance values with the adjacent pins. Any suggestions on what else may be bad? I'm going to call the dealer tomorrow, but I'm not wanting to keep spending money to not fix the problem.

I think reminding them that you care not to throw money at misdiagnosed services should get your point across.

So in addition to the Evap solenoid, the dealership has replaced the valve cover (warranty) and the MAF (not warranty). I'm now over 100k. Diesel guy gave several suggestions, but is there something I can do to narrow things down? I don't want to replace parts randomly like it seems the dealer was doing. I could take it back to them, but I'm afraid they are replacing perfectly good parts each time.

I'm curious what the end result was with this. Hopefully by now the right part was found.

Unfortunately, they never found the problem. I?m just living with the CEL. GM didn?t seem to care when I replied to dealer satisfaction survey because they never followed up after I gave a poor review stating the problem was never resolved.
