Hi everyone, Thank you for taking the time to read an respond. I recently purchased a 2007 Chevy cobalt LS at 41k miles an it drives nice but recently I've been feeling this weird feeling kindakn the gas pedal around 1500 rpm. I'll be doing 40-50 mph an be sitting around 2k rpm am without me backing off the gas the rpm gauge will come down to around 1500 an just sit there an then that's when the feeling starts. When it happens I can press the gas pedal half way to the floor without the rpm moving from 1500rpm then it jumps up to 3500-4000 rpm.

    Try keeping your gas pedal at the same position with the right foot when it does this, AND then tap the brake pedal with the left foot. That should cause the Torque Converter Clutch lockup to disengage (it did on the earlier cars). I don't have my 2008 Cobalt to try it there--just sold it a month ago.

    The car may be sluggish about disengaging the TCC. I think at about 40 was where the transmission tried to lockup the TCC or the trans shifted from 3rd to 4th. I would get some back and forth at about that speed driving on the local street especially as the car was warming up.
