Chevrolet Cavalier Problem Reports
RepairPal Verified Chevrolet Cavalier Problem Reports
It is not uncommon for the power steering rack to develop a fluid leak requiring replacement of the rack assembly. Loss of power steering fluid may also cause an abnormal noise and damage to the power steering pump
The ignition module or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to die and not restart. Diagnoses will be necessary to determine if the module or crank sensor is causing the no start condition.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
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 turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.
It is very common for the high pressure power steering rubber hoses to leak. Our technicians recommend replacing leaky rubber hoses to prevent the loss of power steering.
The engine vacuum hose to the MAP sensor may crack resulting in a vacuum leak causing the engine to run rough and/or stall.
One or more of the fuel injectors may short out electrically causing a rough idle condition.
The PCV vacuum hose under the upper intake plenum may become brittle and crack causing an engine vacuum leak.
The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.
The timing chain tensioner and guides are prone to wear and may develop an abnormal noise, requiring replacement.
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.
