    The coolant part is funny, flush the system out and refill with only "caltex red", do not under any circumstances overfill the expansion bottle otherwise coolant may stall in the system, it travels upwards a lot in this car - so please keep it in check. Never should it go above the max mark when cold.
    thanks, I haven't cleaned it yet...problem is still there...the problem is that car suddenly starts de-accelerating like there is no fuel supply to it, and when throttle is floored 2or 3 time it come back to life with CHECK light which go away after some time..
    we checked it with diagnose tool it was showing MAP error that time, any other sensor can cause this problem too ?
    new sensor costs whooping 6K


    and about the coolant part, car was having green coolant from day one, that brown colour is of rust...
    there is a minor leak some where I had to locate it so for time being im using plain water..

    I've got Chevorlet Joy 2006 and I am facing pretty much the same problem as was faced by Mr. Sharo53. Adding insult to injury; my ride also back fires at times specially when the adjustment of CNG is not accurate. Can You (Mr. Sharo53) tell from where did you get your problem fixed. I talked to Mr. Agha (the guy from Islamabad) and he is demanding 8000 rupees for reprogramming. Can anyone guide me whether this programming can be done from Sargodha?

    Default chevy joy

    Was going through the thread guys as far as rpm being unstable first issue is the sensor its the little black valve like on front of the throtle body. Its screwed on it. That should solve the throttle body and any other related rpm issues. If the throttle body is choked the engine race rpm that is stays high constantly upto 1300 max. The sensor is a typical fault but trust me its an amazing car for what it costs. Aircondition rocks, drive is smooth very spacious best buy for something near 4 lacs.

    Dear its an amazing car. But for a student depends on your financial status cause you will need to sort out a bit to spend on it. Once you have get it set as per your needs wont bug you. Best car for this price.

    Chevrolet JOY and problems -1566415

    Bro, My experience with this car is more then awesome i have Chevrolet excl 2004, and it not yet gave me any issue Alhamdolilah..just when i feel some even minor change in its performance i get it nipped in the bud...just you need to look for some qualified mechanic for its engine or electrical related work.. Never let it heat ever take special care of its cooling system...As far as your issue is concerned as per my experience it seems that its just due to valve with air filter (see in pic encircled) take it out clean engine oil left overs from it there would be a small ball in it check if its freely moving...fit it up again and then check the throttle if its normal.. it should be normal.. if not try replacing it ...thats all i can help on confirm basis from my end.. May Allah Bless u and ur ride..
