I seems i have the same problem. I brought my aveo in to chevy and they said every thing was fine.BS. And it has nothing to do with the temp. I lived in wisconsin before i moved to calif. I spent a winter in wisconsin were it would get -30 deg. It's grinding is as loud in calif as in wisconsin. I also bought new tires for winter driving and it did not help.
Do you have a manual transmission or an automatic?
I am also going to bring back into chevy and going to personally watch them check my transmission and take them for a drive. If they find anything i will send a post your way.
#80 of 144 2008 Avero - Hatchback Auto Transmission Problems
Nov 29, 2008 (9:58 am)
Bought my 2008 Aveo brand new and a few months later (about 12,000) the automatic transmission is now working right when cold. the car seemed to work fine in cold weather but now since it has gotten colder here in central Pennsylvania, the automatic transmission in the morning is not shifting right. It will go into 1st great fine and then into second, then when it gets near 3000 rpms it never shifts. The only way I get it to shift is to leave of the accelerator and let it fall back to 2000 rpms or a little less then I can feel it shift down. Then after that I depress the accelerator and then it goes back up to 3rd and then into 4th. After that it works fine. But it seems that when itís near freezing or below freezing I have this problem. I am not getting any check engine lights or any warning lights at all. Anyone have any ideas whatís going on?? Bad transmission??

If you still have the AVEO Have the dealer do a crankshaft sensor variation relearn on your car. Every time a major component is replaced (motor,trans. etc) you have to have this done.( From Alldata)

I have the exact same breakdown with my '04 Aveo and replaced the engine.
I too am now having the exact same problem (solid check engine light, then blinking and won't shift up past 3rd gear)
My mechanic who swapped the engines claims he has no idea what's wrong, but I think he's just BSing me as this happened 2 days after I got the car back, so he's already been paid.
scy80, how did you solve this? Did Riboo's suggestion work?
#83 of 144 Oh crap, my shift-interlock is broken again!
Feb 20, 2009 (8:28 pm)
Well, my car had the shift-interlock replaced exactly one year ago almost to the day and it's now broken again. I can't take it in tomorrow, when the warranty on the repair expires. I'm taking it somewhere else since it's not under any of my other warranties.
So, I wonder if this is going to be a once a year thing with this car or what? I'm tempted not to fix it and use the override, but I don't want to damage anything by doing that long term.

Riboo's suggestion worked. I did it to my Aveo 2004 car and it works fine now. It goes right into 4th normally. Had the dealer do it and cost me $135.00. He didn't seem to know what it was, until I explained it to him, then he knew. I talked to the Sevice deptment manager.

I had my 2004 Aveo crank shaft sensor variation relearned to day(31 March 2009) and it now works just fine. I went to the service manager and explained what I needed and then he realized what had to be done. It cost me $135.00 to have it done.

I had my 2004 Aveo crank shaft sensor variation relearned today (29 June 2009) drove for about 30 miles all seems well. I will say that I had an interesting experience at my dealer.
I showed up and told him what was wrong and what needed to be done. He said, "yea ok well it will be $99.95 for us to do the diagnostic and then we will let you know what we find from there." I left the car and walked off thinking wonderful they are going to charge me a hundred bucks to find out they have to do what I said in the first place. While on my walk-a-bout I spotted the tech and MY car at the walmart. Can you believe it! So shortly afterward I started my way back to the dealer I got a call from the dealer telling me that they needed to do a relearn procedure for the crank shaft sensor and it will be $150. I mentioned seeing my car and that I would discuss it more when I return. Well as I am stepping back on thier lot about hour has past since I first spotted my car and guess what pulls in behind me, yep MY car once again. I tell the manager all of this and they decide to do the work for FREE.
So here is the moral of the story instead of paying the dealer all that money to test your car to find out you were right. Let them take it to the store and then make them do the service for free.
