2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart.
The serpentine belt tensioner can fail; it may become noisy and/or the belt may jump off. Replacement of the failed tensioner will be necessary.
The engine vacuum hose to the MAP sensor may crack resulting in a vacuum leak causing the engine to run rough and/or stall.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
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.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
