Having problems with your 2001 Chevrolet Metro ?
I have a chevy metro 2001, I took a trip to north coralina, after ariving I notice my ac compressor was making some noise. I was told by a mechanic to just cut the ac belt, so i did. After that it only took about 15 miles before my car shut off while I was driving. The engine cranks but doesnt turn on. Ive tried new crank and shafts sensors, but it didnt help. No codes were found when I checked, so I assumed it was the computer, I bought one from the junk yard but It didnt help either.
