Yes, a 1997 Chevy Cavalier does have a distributor cap. The distributor does not have points and a condenser. This part is one electronic unit.
Well yes and no. Both have a 2.2 four cylinder if I'm not mistaken, but I don't think the earlier Cavalier's have the EcoTec motor. And you should be able to get the engine from the '03 into the '97 with no problem.
You can swap the engine from your 1997 Cavalier 2.2 liter engine to your 2000 Chevy Cavalier. The wiring harness and motor mounts should be in exactly the same.
It depends on what engine you have.
there is no distributor,there is a power pack that houses the coils under the cover that has 2.4 marked on it
my car has 2
Yes it does.
It could be that the distributor was not the problem. Need to know what the code is and what engine you have.
The oil capacity for the 2.2L engine is specified as 4.0 qts.
takes 3 times for engine to start
