2010 Cobalt Stalling

Hi,

2010 Cobalt, LS 2.2 Ecotec, with 13.7k miles. Oil level normal and battery voltage = 12.5V.

I’ve bought the car new in Feb. 2001. Car started and ran normally for the work commute on Friday, 9/2. Today the Cobalt starts normally, runs for 2-3 seconds, and then stalls. The accelerator has no effect. It’s already been towed to the dealer, but I’m wondering if anybody has had a similar experience and what the fix might be?

Thanks,

Ed B.

FYI,

It was a bad MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor).
