Undue pressure on the hub bearings on a 1997 Cavalier

ok so I have a 97 chevy Cavaliar convertable. And when I first got it, it was making a grinding sound when ever I drove it. the sound seemed to be coming from the passanger front tire and when I would turn right the sound was still there but when I turned left the sound would go away during the turn. Well naturally I thought the bearing was going out on the side. so I bought a new one it came pre lubed and put together, in the box was also a spacer it just looked like a metal disc. well when I went to put the new bearing on the car who ever had done so previously had left the spacer off. i wasn't sure were that spacer went but I tried putting on the front and it fit so i just finished and put it back together. to my surprise the grinding was still there. after many surfing and calling around I discovered that the spacer was ment to go behind not infront once I changed that and yes it was a pain in the *** i put the car back together and car was like new. hope that helps

I changed engines from a 1996 chevy cavalier to a 1997 cavalier,i don't get any gas or fire won't start

These cars were made with an anti theft security system. If you swapped motors, you may have interupted that system causing the the security to turn off the ijector fuel. Just a thought.

Miss on cold start for 45 sec to 1 min then stops missing and runs fine, another thing that happens is if I put gas in it I have to let it run for 2 min or so or it will die then is hard to start .

That sounds like you have water in your gas or oil.
I would have it check out by the dealer right away.

Cavaliers of that year "1997-2000" are known for head gasket problems.

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.
