Easy fix... Take a gallon of gas and a clean cloth or shirt. Soak the cloth in the gas and wipe all the interior down with the gas.

Then poor some of the gas all over the engine, making sure to soak it really good

After doing this, take a match and burn that f**ker..
Mine was doing the same thing, I burned it and blamed it on Islamic jihad to my insurance. Never looked back

2006 cobalt hard to start after fueling it up, must push on the accelerator pedal to get it started, then must put at high idle for few seconds or the car stalls when put in gear. check engine light is on.

Very likly your over filling the car with fuel. You shold only fill the car till it stops the fuel handle the firstr tim after that you may be filling the evaprotive fuel system with raw gas the engine is pulling this fuel thight the vacume system and it stumbles on this extra fuel till it burns it all. If in doubt shut off the fuel pump early as your wasting the extra fuel your putting in anyway.

06 cobalt My idle keeps on going up and down between 500 and 750 rpms when I come to a stop. It hasn't shut off on me yet, but it seems like it is going to. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Sounds like your idle air control valve is going out on you. The IAC is located on the throttle body which is where the air duct tube ends coming from the air filter. It is held on by a couple of screws and is easy to replace. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
