Answer . If your talking about you indicator flasher relay I've got a suggestion. I just changed one on a 1999 Cavalier. It was located underneith the drivers side of the dash. It is a little square black relay that might be clipped on up underneith or it my not. It is right out in the open, … but you might need a flashlight to get a good look at it. Like I said, this was on a 1999 Cavalier not a 1992 Cavalier. But if there anything alike........... So hopefully this works out for you. If not...... well....... I tried.. (MORE)

Answer . Replacing a thermostat is a relatively easy task. If your temperature gauge is running way down on the low side and your heater isn't putting out much heat, it's time to replace the thermostat. Here is a description of how to change a thermostat. The exact location of your thermostat may… be slightly different but most of them are near the top radiator hose in the top of the engine.. The thermostat is normally in a housing which is at the engine end of the top radiator hose. Drain the coolant into a drain pan - toss it down the john - it's the correct way to dispose of it. Take a screwdriver and remove the hose clamp from the top hose where it meets the top of the engine. Get a flashlight and see if you can peek down the hole and see the thermostat. If it is faulty it will be open.. Not all thermostat housings are identical but typically it will be held on with two bolts. Remove them. Tap the thermostat housing with a wooden block or a soft faced hammer. It should pop off easily. You can then see the thermostat. Lift it out. Don't sweat the gasket - you are going to replace it anyway. Use a new gasket. Scrape EVERYTHING off both mating surfaces. Use a single edged razor blade. Apply some blue rubber sealant to both sides of the gasket. Then grab it between your fingers and "squeegee" any excess off. You don't need a lot of sealant.. Make sure you put the gasket on the right side of the thermostat. The stat will normally fit into a recess in the engine, the gasket goes on top and the housing on top of that. Wipe a bit of blue rubber sealant inside the hose, put it back onto the housing nipple and clamp it back in place. . NOTE: Some Cavaliers do not have a traditional gasket but use a rubber ring around the thermostat. If this is the case with your model, do not use gasket sealant. . You should probably drain all of the coolant by draining the block but if you can't find the small plug it the side of the engine don't sweat it. You should mix antifreeze and water in a ratio of 50-50 and replace what you drained out with the fresh mix. If you can't get all the replacement mix in while it's cold just warm it up a bit and watch the level drop as the thermostat opens up. Then add mix until it is totally filled. Replace the radiator cap and put a quart or so in the overflow bottle (which you should have drained previously). (MORE)
Answer . \nRemove the drain plug on the oil pan. Remove and replace the filter. Install 4.5 quarts of the proper weight oil.
The horn is on the left side under the corner of the bumper. If you take the bumper off you will know it when you see it.
Answer . It's located at the front of the passenger front fender, inside the plastic splash shield. You would need to remove the horn to get to it.
The correct tire pressure is listed on you driver's door post and in your owner's manual. The maximum you should put in your tires is 35psi cold. Note: The correct pressure for the vehicle is NOT listed on the side of the tire. The pressure listed on the tire is the maximum pressure the tire ca…n handle. The same tire is installed on many different cars and the correct pressure may be different on each vehicle. (MORE)
Answer . Assume you mean starter solenoid; most GM starters have the solenoid built in. To change it, just replace the starter.
Remove the instrument panel cover. Take hold of the dash lightlightbulb. Push the lightbulb in and turn at the same time. Thelightbulb will come out. Reverse the process to install the newdashboard lights.
Answer . I had a 1991 Chevy Cavalier and I needed to replace the flasher bulb as well. It took awhile but I found it under the drivers side dash. It's a circular shaped aluminum fuse.
Answer . Probably on the front lower section of engine behind radiator--follow + battery cable
I f the sunroof want open or close all the way, it's most likely the motot going bad here is how you can replace it. Re: 2002 Cavalier Sunroof Motor .

how do reset a 1998 chevey cavalier antitheft system if it want start and the anti theft light is on
the headlight flasher is located under the dash next to the OBD plug in (that plug where they check engine codes) on the drivers side..
On the 2.2L engine they are in the front between the exhaust manifold. On the 2.4L engine they are under the aluminum cover on the top of the engine. There are no plug wires on the 2.4L engine.
Remove all the hoses and wiring harnesses connected to the engine. just to name a few radiator hoses, power stering hoses, throttlecable, fuels lines, injector harnesses, AC (be careful this is apressurized system) After everything is disconnected from the engine itself support thetransmission, and… remove the bell housing bolts. Remove the starter and then through that hole remove the transfercase bolts by turning the flywheel. Now the fun part remove anything that might be in the way, coolantreservoir, then support the engine and remove the front upperengine mount. Connect the cherry picker to the motor and lift slightly, separatethe tranny from the engine using a pry bar or similar (if itdoesn't want to come check that all the bell and transfer casebolts are out) Disconnect the lower engine mount and lift slowly very slowly tomake sure that you didn't miss any connections. From here just liftslowly and maneuver the engine out its a tight fit but it comes outangled slightly up on the passenger side. (MORE)
There is no average lifespan for a Chevy Cavalier as it depends onhow well it is taken care of. Regardless, they can usually workwell up to 200,000 mi. if they are checked and fixed routinely.
The 1987 Chevy Cavalier has airbags. Many of these were recalleddue to an airbag defect. When returned to the dealer, the air bagsensors had to be reset.
YES I CAN! u should have a shop do it because of the time and precision needed as well as specialty tools and equipment.
I have heard that the motor mounts often go bad. I have just purchased one but have not picked it up yet. It has a terrible vibration while in gear standing still. I never expect it to go away 100% but I'm sure I can improve it. I had a Vega years ago and I think it's typical of the older 4cylinder …Chevy. Alot of times its the boots of the engine mounts, but before u go out and purchase those go inside your engine compartment and try tightening down the mounts a bit, i have seen people have this problem go out and buy the new boots etc for it and all it was.. was a loose bolt somewhere down the line..

Even with the overdrive plug out, my '94 Cav RS convertible with a 3.1 v-6, is still a screaming little machine. Please note though that I don't press it. I love this car too much run it hard, and although I know that it has over 100k on it, if I had to put my foot down, it will GO!
I have a stock wheel, which seems to sit 1.92 inches from center. That's what I measured, anyways.
with a LOT of fabrication it could be done. Maybe.... I have seen a newer cavalier with a caddy northstar V8 in it. There is a video of it running on youtube.
un bolt the old header and bolt the new one on . dont forget the gasket
near the bottom of the battery there is a bolt through a rubber tie down looks like this /o\ un bolt that remove the terminals and lift it out
to be honest a well maintained car will run forever my grand mother still has her 57 Chevy she bought new in 58.
The cost isin't to great, but, the pain comes with the installation. Drilling the rivets,removing the window,removing the window regulator,then the window motor and then replacing it all back to where it was. Expect a few cuts and scrapes....
The PCM is located in the right corner of the engine compartment under the air cleaner assembly and bolted to the chassis
its an internal water pump not a task for the faint of heart or amature mechanic I took mine in to have it done was way cheaper and less time consuming shop aound for cheapest deal.
its either the water pump or thermostat take it to a shop if you can that pump is a nightmare to change
its in your gas tank not an easy replacement but a local shop I am sure can do it. the relays and fuses are either uner the hood or drivers side dash panel behind the door.
I can't tell much from what you've written. But if it's heating up quickly, your thermostat might just be sticking. Fortunately they're like 10 bucks and easily replaced. But it could also be a cracked head gasket. Much more pricey and difficult to replace
The solenoid/starter motor assembly is installed on the lower part of the engine next to the transmission bellhousing
on the steering wheel, there should be a small oval/rectangle shaped piece of (rubber?) with the Chevy symbol on it. if you pull hard enough, it will come off. there is a small tube, with a spring on the end of it, the tube should be red. that tube gets inserted into a small hole in the steering whe…el. if the horn doesnt work, try reinserting this tube. the horn itself, should be inside either the right or left bumper or side panel. you will have to remove both in order to get to it.

jack it up remove the wheel then the brake calipers then the rotors should slide off
google it but no they dont have a carp they are fuel injected unless someone wanted to waste their time to drop a carbed engine in it
Check if all fuses are working and see if there is any circuit short. Also check if the ignition switch is in a proper working condition.
82 to 94 as per a haynes manual, auto trans: 700 rpm and manual:750 rpms.
It is the same for both motors (2.2L and 2.4L), so yes the fuel pump should be the same in all Cavaliers/Sunfires between the yrs of 1996 and 2005
To perform an OBDII Driving cycle do the following: Cold Start. In order to be classified as a cold start the enginecoolant temperature must be below 50ÃÂ°C (122ÃÂ°F) and within 6ÃÂ°C(11ÃÂ°F) of the ambient air temperature at startup. Do not leave thekey on prior to the cold star…t or the heated oxygen sensordiagnostic may not run. 1.Idle. The engine must be run for two and a half minutes with theair conditioner on and rear defroster on. The more electrical loadyou can apply the better. This will test the O2 heater, PassiveAir, Purge "No Flow", Misfire and if closed loop is achieved, FuelTrim 2.Accelerate. Turn off the air conditioner and all the other loadsand apply half throttle until 88km/hr (55mph) is reached. Duringthis time the Misfire, Fuel Trim, and Purge Flow diagnostics willbe performed. 3.Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 88km/hr (55mph) for 3minutes. During this time the O2 response, air Intrusive, EGR,Purge, Misfire, and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed. 4.Decelerate. Let off the accelerator pedal. Do not shift, touchthe brake or clutch. It is important to let the vehicle coast alonggradually slowing down to 32km/hr (20 mph). During this time theEGR, Purge and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed. 5.Accelerate. Accelerate at 3/4 throttle until 88-96 km/hr(55-60mph). This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 6.Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 88km/hr (55mph) forfive minutes. During this time, in addition to the diagnosticsperformed in step 4, the catalyst monitor diagnostics will beperformed. If the catalyst is marginal or the battery has beendisconnected, it may take 5 complete driving cycles to determinethe state of the catalyst. 7.Decelerate. This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 5.Again, don't press the clutch or brakes or shift gears. (MORE)
The first thing you want to do is suspend the front end, drain the transmission, remove the wheels, brake assembly, steering knuckle "DONT TURN IT OR WHEN YOU PUT BACK ON ALLIGNMENT WILL BE OFF," Carefully remove the cvs from the transmission support the engine with a jack, unbolt the transmission m…ounts and bell to engine bolts. remove shift cables and wiring then carefully lower the trans to the ground and then you have access to the clutch. Reinstallation is reverse remember to torque the bolts to manufacturers specs. (MORE)
its possibly in the trunk look I bet you find it. if its burned out use a flash light and look
It can be a multitude of things.Like the egr valve is blocked up with carbon,IAC (idle air control) on tbi is dirty or sticking,map sensor is bad (on the firewall).I would suggest getting a obd1 scanner and check for codes at the port for it driver side towards the fuse box(or take it to auto zone o…r advance auto for a free scan).I can list tons of why but,is your ride automatic or manual?This matters because if auto the TCC solenoid could be bad and cause the car to stall in drive,reverse or coming to a stop.In short part has to replaced and transmission fluid changed to correct this.In short more details like engine 2.0 ohv and transmission (auto or manual) help narrow down things.I have owned my 85 cav 14yrs and KNOW these cars so isolating the problem is not that hard most of the time. In short -- it can be any of a number of things -- have a mechanic check it out. (MORE)
There is no pcv "valve" on the 2.2 but the pcv "system" keeps oil from getting into the intake. I'm trying to fix my 2.2. Oil everywhere.
Its in the front, right behind the radiator. Its usually painted black. On my 1996, it has wires that come out of it for the oil level sensor on the side of the pan.
there are four nuts located on the hinges disconnect the wiring harness from the door....and remove those nuts. you might need some help with this.
