Hi Scotty! I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt LT that stopped running after hitting and running over a chunk of ice that I presume fell off of a semi truck and was hoping for some answers, so here it goes... After this all happened, the first thing to go was the heat (this happened in December), then the car started overheating and the engine light came on. I was on the highway headed home and was about an hour and a half away with little to no cell service, so I thought I'd chance it and kept on going until it completely stopped close to an hour later. I then noticed that my grill was missing also. I'm hoping it's nothing too serious, but I'm willing to pay for the damages if it's nothing too major and within my budget. I haven't come around to bringing it into a shop yet, because I'm afraid to get ripped off and I'm the kind of person who wants to figure stuff out for myself before messing around with anything I have no clue about. I'm going to start teaching myself basic mechanic stuff, so I don't have to waste tons of money for simple things such as oil changes and stuff that needs maintenance year-round. Thanks for taking the time to read my conversation and I'm hoping to hear back from you! :)

Wiring work can often be total hell. As all wiring is ultimately connected to each other and the main computer. So learn how to use a test meter and watch some of my electronic repair vids on the scotty kilmer channel. good luck
