It's a small engine.....not much you can do that will make enough difference to feel. There are some turbo kits available. The other option is to ditch the 4 cyl and drop in a V6. But that will involve rewiring, ecm, trans, etc.

battery not holding a charge, altenator not putting enough power.

I have a 2004 blazer and my manual shifter is removed by turning the hex nut just below the actual shifter clockwise. This may sound counter-intuitive as that is the direction to tighten but this spins the nut away from the shifter so the shifter is free to spin (counter-clockwise).. So..... 1. Push...
Could be a multitude of things. Depends on what type of noise and shaking. Bad plugs, wires, coils, ICM, fuel injectors. Could be a spun rod bearing. Is the check engine light on? Need a little more info to give you any kind of helpful answer.

It may be due to a bad alternator. If the alternator has a bad diode it will draw battery power when the car is off. Another possible draw is the trunk light. The trunk light works with a sensor that is mounted to the curved bar on the left side (drivers side) of the trunk. This sensor sometimes...

Buy a set and place them in the socket head bolt until you get one that is tight. The other sizes will eventually come in handy. Or you can simply purchase size T-50 and be done with it actually I believe it's a T-55 and that is for the front wheel hub. To take the brakes off you'll need a 3/8"...
first question, which i will ask before anyone else posts the wrong answer to you like the other how-to sites i've been reading (mine needs to be replaced also), what model engine do you have.

It may be running to lean. It may be a sign that the fuel pressure is low. Meaning the fuel pump is getting weak.It happened to me.Replaced the fuel pump,good to go. Could be a vacuum line. May be starving for air. Worst scenario, low compression. Good Luck...
  That is a big negative, the Ecotec S/C is an M62. But there is a 2.4L M45 GMPP Supercharger available for it.
  == Answer ==     This can be a number of things. What comes to mind first is, if this is an A/T you may have a bad lock-up torque converter, or the solenoid is stuck. If the engine runs and idles great until you put it in drive, this would be my guess.
  The only way to "disable" the "governor" is to reprogram the ECM to delete the fuel cut off point.

Right hand side of the engine. Follow the coolant line in front of the engine (metal line) it goes right to the housing.
  == Answer ==   Did you try checking the transmission fluid? Maybe it needs to be flushed? Notice I said "flushed", because there is a big difference between changing the fluid and flushing it. If it is a rebuilt tranny, maybe it wasn't rebuilt right.
The Chevrolet Cavalier 200's gear shift light bulb is found by the  N in the gear shift near the driver's side. To access it, two bolts  must be removed underneath the arm rest, one under the cup by the  shift, and one more under the rubber insert in the tray. Lift the  console, and follow the...
