I have a Chevy Cavelier - year 2000. My timing belt broke at 172,000 with no warning. It was a belt though, not a timing chain.

About $20 if you do it yourself. And you should replace the spring kit hardware also.

If it's a wall charger then it's original equipment. Otherwise, such as if it's a car charger, it's an accessory.

Thermostat is stuck open. Replace it. It opens at 180 degrees. Car should run at 195 degrees

everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual available...in the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)

Any time you rebuild the engine you should always put in a new timing chain. They are far more durable than a timing belt.

No, If it runs good just drive it; spend the money on something you need.

usually located up by the steering column. It should be a round tin/aluminim fuse. Just pull it out and replace.

Origional equipment components will not have any grease fittings. Once you replace the parts with GOOD aftermarket parts you will have fittings to lube. You should get a few years out of the original parts before they need replacing

It is important to know the cost of replacing parts on a car. For a 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 it will cost between $200-$400 to replace the struts, is a person is doing it themselves.

User Avatar

yea it should? it shouldn't matter if its a 2.2 or 2.4 they should be the same set up

User Avatar

Unless there is something wrong with it (there shouldn't be), you should never have to replace the timing chain. That's the beauty of chevy.

With proper chemicals, equipment, and a filter, you will never need to completely replace the water in a pool.

The charcoal canister should be on the passenger side of a 2001 Cavalier. It should be close to the front bumper.

Through the hole that the door handle comes through you can feel a screw. Remove the screw and the handle should come off.

There should be screws located on the bottom and sides of the panel which u tighten in place. AND, replace those white push-pins

Assuming you mean a 2001 Taurus, original equipment would be a 195 degree F thermostat.
