2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Problems
The turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.
A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Questions
Power steering pump blew & serpentine belt broke. I replaced both but the car is overheating. I do see leaking around the head gaskets. What could be causing this?
Car starting hesitating on accelaration, engine light appeared then the car died. It will not start, chekced the battery it was low so we charged the battery and it still will not start. It cranks; wherein the alternator is turning but the engine does not engage?
Just bought this cavalier for my son. The steering wheel feels loose, it can wiggle side to side, like when you are turning, a good bit before it meets resistance and turns the car. When going at a good rate of speed it is difficult to control in a turn. This is so hard to explain. I'm sorry...

I am extremely attached to "Bessie Blue". I love my 2002 Cavalier! Bought her in 2003 with only 3K miles, basically brand new and would never dream of trading her in. She is considerably older (140K) and some repairs are starting to creep up in her old age but all in all, I still would not trade her for all the gold in Fort Knox (if there is any left that is)! So glad I got to 02 body style...
Great on gas .. in love with it
