    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    Yep. Sold it to a friend's kid. I should have paid more attention to my intuition. Problem first started when wet and only when wet. Screams electrical. Duh. (insert forehead slap here) Oh well. I've learned about coil packs. Now have two Chevy Equinii. One with 19K and the other 38K...

    BTW, running like a top now.

    Yeah, really didn't need the code to figure this one out if I had previous experience with coil packs. First thing...disconnected and pulled off the coil pack...minus the #1 cylinder boot. 20 minute leisurely fix, could do it again in 10 without gapping plugs (they came pre-gapped). Top 10...

    Next time I'm going to assume that pretty much nothing, with very few exceptions, is covered after the BTB warranty expires. Could have saved myself a lot of time and frustration seeing if they'd cover a repair which would cost me under a hundred bucks and an hour of my time. It's funny how...

    I should have just taken it to my local go-to-guy for diagnostics. Actually, a P0301 code can only be a couple things, right?

    Looks easy to do. Just ordered up a $75 coil and will get plugs from local auto parts place. Nobody at the dealer or Chevy warranty center could clearly state what was covered or not covered under what (Federal Emissions or B2B warranty). Warranty info. in glove box very poorly written...

    BTW, it's a coil pack. Can the individual coils be swapped? Just curious.

    Good call. It says right in the warranty information provided with the vehicle that the coil is an ignition part covered under the emissions warranty. Dealer just called, said it's not covered. WTF? GM says one thing, dealer says another, demonstrating once again that these #*$^ing dealers...

    Taking it into the dealer today; looks like it would be covered. But if were not... Would it be a good idea to first swap ignition coils to see if it's a coil problem? It's likely either the coil, plug or both, right? Outside chance it may be the ignition module?

    P0301 code set. Is this something that should be covered under dealer warranty? I don't want to take it in and get hosed when they tell me it's not covered.

    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    Now we're getting some progress. I usually don't drive it, wife does. Started up, went about 3 blocks then began to miss. Very rough idle, very rough acceleration. Check engine light was intermittently flashing, and the traction light went on. Haven't had time to check a code, but if the...

    I was thinking that too, but it occurs if the defrost is on or off. Compressor clutch is very loud BTW. I chalked that up to cheap engineering and lack of sound deadening.

    No code set...dealer wouldn't fix anything under warranty. So...seems to happen when it's wet out...not sure if it happens when cold and dry. Any input?
