There is no carb. It's fuel injected. There hasn't been a carb on a car since the late 80's. I'm fairly certain 87 was the last year for carb equipped American built vehicles.
Chances are, you have either a bad lock up solenoid . Or you may have a bad fuel pressure regulator..
This is where I would look first
Try unplugging the transmission with the car off.Take a short drive in it.Come back home,turn it off,then plug it up again.But first check that the shift cable didn't get out of ajustment.You will have to take it loose from the top of the transmission and look at it to actually FIGURE OUT how it is...
Answer there are frost plugs at the rear of the engine block between the transaxle and the engine. you have to remove the engine to replace these frost plugs. the frost plug on the 2.3 should be at the back of the engine block under the manifold. if you jack your car up, you can see it when you...
If the color in the car is green...yes. If you are changing the coolant completely, give it a good flush first, then put in whatever color you want. When in doubt, use the Prestone yellow "any color" anti-freeze.
\nits in the fuse block under the hood on the drivers side by the battery.

You'll need to unbolt the torque converter from the flexplate. That's the only link between the two. Make sure to support the transmission before unbolting it from the engine.
\nReplacing the head gasket on any vehicle is a long and complicated\nprocess, however if you wish to see basic step-by-step instructions go\nto the related question on the right side of the page\n"How do you replace a head gasket?"
Directly under the steering wheel on the bottom of the dashboard. With the driver's door open kneel down between the door and the drivers seat. This position will allow you to easily see the OBDII connector. There is usually a plastic cap over the actual connector pins.
\nThis is Electronic Traction Control. Yours, it appears is turned off. If you have an owner's manual, it will provide the information you want. If not, get one. In the mean time look closely, and I am sure you will find the on/off switch on the dash or near the shifter.
You need to start with some basic trouble shooting. Turn on the key and check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. There's a Schrader valve on the fuel rail. Looks like a large tire valve stem. Just to see if you are getting fuel use a small screw driver etc to push the stem down. Be VERY careful...
there is no fuel shut off for your cavalier but if you look in the fuse panel inside your car or under the hood you might find a relay or a fuse marked fuel pump and that should shut it off.
I have a 97 cavalier with a 95 engine and i had to replace the whole ignition module and the coil packs are 1/4 and 2/3 that's how they are numbered on the coil packs so 2 coil packs but make sure you know which one isn't firing to replace them and u will have to replace you spark plugs after that.

Speed Sensor is not working
Rotate? As in rotate the crank manually? Remove the Passenger side splash panel and turn it with an 18mm socket.
Go straight to synthetic. There's no need to "wean" it off regular oil.
just take the bolts out i think there size 8mm
Simply unhook the battery cable for a minute. After you reconnect it, take the car for a drive.....with a few miles at highway speed. That will help the ECM relearn settings including fuel mixture and especially idle speed.
There is no "air intake control valve" persay. On the throttle body you have, Idle Air Control Valve it is square looking and right in front. The IAC valve does just that,controls the idle. It has 4 wires.There are a couple of ways to test it.The easy way is with an ohmmeter.Unplug it and check...
Which one? What are you having problems with?
On the driver side, under the hood. Look back near the firewall down low. There is a red dipstick handle to check fluid level. Take out the dipstick and using a long funnel, add the trans fluid until full.
well the 90 3.1 is the same as the 2.8 where the coil pack module is located underneath the front exhaust manifold to replace the module u have to take out all 3 coils leave the park plug wires connected and then disconnect the wires to the module and take out a couple of bolts and just replace it...

A bad EGR valve should not cause the engine to not start. There ismost likely another problem that is causing the engine to notstart.
Trouble code P0300 means:Random/multiple cylinder misfire detected
Stuck fuel injector or busted diaphragm inside the fuel pressure regulator.
The ECM will be programmed to shut it down around 105 mph.
Sitting in the driver's seat, facing forward, the white coolant tank is on your right side inner fender wall. At the bottom front of the tank, there's a connector attached. This connector is for that coolant level indicator on the dash. Unplug it to see if this turns off the indicator, if...
First, remember that it is 14y/o this being Mid 2010. There are a few things at home to check for worn parts. There are 2 rubber bushings,and a ball joint on the lower control arm and a tie rod that is connected on the top side between the rack & pinion and steering knuckle. BUT,...Raise the two...
No they do not have the same motor.
Under the upper intake plenum. You have to unbolt the throttle body and the take out the upper intake plenum bolts to remove the plenum...(the part that says 3.1 Multi-Port). Once you have it off you'll see them.
2.2L Altenator on a 2.2L, AND, 2.4L on a 2.4L ONLY!
If your car has a coil-pack on it chances are one or both of them are going out My check engine light flashed rapidly when one of mine spuddered out,,,, 2.4L
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.
It is on the accumulator.
It is in the fuse box on the driver's side, bottom of the dash.
battery not holding a charge, altenator not putting enough power.
nope,no room,wire harness wont connect,and to heavy.
Sorry the song is get in the convertible Cd's are insert able lets put the top down people shouting everywhere feeling the breeze in my hair yea.
They are thoes long things that reach from inside the wheels to inside the engine compartment. It takes a lot of special tools and alignment machine to change them..
I somewhat agree.They ARE behind the front wheels.Removal from the car is simple. Open the hood and remove the wheel.There...
Depending on the parts you are wanting to interchange....yes. For the most part they are.
Nothing will.Only a 97 will work in a 97.Trust me,I have been there twice.Salvage yards will say the same.
The coolant level sensor on a 2.4 L is under front of the coolant reservoir towards the engine. It has a 2-wire connector on it.
I have a 2002 and got about 33 mpg on regular gas at an average speed of 120 km/h or 75 or so miles an hour..
The Chevy Cavalier was last made in 2005. It had two different versions which gave different fuel economy ratings..
Automatic - 2.2L - 4 Cylinder .
Highway: 34 MPG ....
There could be a couple causes . The first would be the oxygencensor isn't working properly and the other is the coil pack isprobably going out.
Remove the fuse..
smokingallowed say's: Removing the fuse will only erase the memory from the computer,and it will have to relearn what it should know. It will not reset the theft system. Here's how to reset the theft system. Roll the window down,(if power windows,turn the key off again...
I have successfully replaced a convertible top on my 95 mustang and published an article on how to do it. See the link below.
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)..
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.
You don't take one out....it has to be programmed out with an aftermarket chip for the ECM.
The instructions should come with the tach. If there are none, get in touch with the manufacturer. no tachometer will work straight out of the box with a cavalier of that year, you must buy an adapter. it will only show half RPM
try changing the map sensor, that was the problem on mine.
It's back behind the fuel tank.
\ntake it to a pro wiring is very tricky if you do not know what your doing
== Answer ==\nTake it to a professional. This is not a DIY job.
It is mounted in the back exhaust manifold. You can see it from the top of the engine back by the firewall.
Well I cant say that I know how to change the bulb because im still figuring that out myself, but the only way I can see is probably reaching through the bottome of the car to the light because it pretty crowded from up top and almost impossible to take the light out. To change the bulbs in the...
If it is like the older 4cyl motors, you would need to take off the timing belt which drives it...not that small of a job.
The Cavalier 2.4L DOHC does not have a timing belt. It has a timing chain that circles inside that flat cover on the passenger side of the engine. It goes around the...
why would you want to do this? 130 hp 2.8 vs what 2.2 120 2.4 150 no reason to do this
\nits located right in the fuse box on the driverside dasboard. its the only black box type fuse in the panel.
Just know that when you remove this, you will have only one headlight working and an annoying DRL light on your gauge cluster. Unless you know the jump sequence...
i have a 1987 Cavalier RS Convertible in my driveway!!
There is more then likely loss of compression, resulting from a number of reasons, do a compression test.
There are three reason's a car will not start One: it is not getting spark to the spark plugs this can be checked by removing the wire at the spark plug and seeing if it arch's to ground by placing it near a ground object such as the engine block or using a spark tester available at your local parts...
It's too hard to tell since we haven't seen the car. There are too many factory option variables (power windows, power locks, CD player, alloy wheels, etc.) to make an educated guess. Go to the Kelley Blue Book website (Related Link below), there you can find the value of your used car based on...
if you need to ask im guessing you have no mechanical abilites at all, my advice, take it to a shop, ive swapped these motors a dozen times, its usually a 2 day job by myself, and goes back and forth depending on weather u have an auto or manual. its a 14hr job easy, if you know what your doing. if...

Jessie McCartney wrote the song bleeding love, but Leona Lewis sings it.
The timing marks should be dot to dot.
how many fuel injectors are in a Chevy cavalier
If it is a standard, it's down on the back side of the engine. if you stand in front of the car open the hood. on the right side below the brake fluid reservoir you will see a small white stick . Lift it and pull it up. It's hard to reach and may be dirty as well; try to wipe of any excess dirt...
It turned out to be the alternator going bad. Replaced alternator. No more growling.
the timing marks are on the cam and crank gears in the timing case.
Bad motor? See if you are getting power to it..
