1994- Chevy Cavalier V6 3.1 engine - leaking oil problem. every 2 months I am replacing the oil because it leaks


it is probably the o-ring in your oil pump. I have the exact problem in my Cavalier. it is a little expensive to fix and I believe you practically have to pull the motor to replace it. Just keep oil in it and you might want to wash down the motor compartment area to cut down the oil spray areas. Don't use a cleaner that will make it too clean because with a motor that oil you may cause more leaks. Sometimes with an old motor you need the build-up around certain sealed parts to fill gaps because it is an older motor. I had that problem with my Old mustang may she RIP, i used a detergent oil because I was told to and it started leaking 3 - 4 qts. of oil weekly and didn't before I used the detergent oil.

What kind of oil does my 1997 chevy cavalier use?


I would say use 5w-20 synthetic but thats because i prefer synthetic. realistically you can use conventional 5w-20. Depending on the condition of your vehicle you might want to use 10w-30 during hot months of the year just because oil is thinner during those times, at start up.

99 cavalier motor work fine and sound good when the motor is cold when it warms up there is a tick in it sounds like a lifter the tick comes from left side of the motor


I would start with an engine oil flush and fill. If that doesn't help then you may need to replace the lifter that has lost its prime. This is usually caused from poor oil flow to the lifters. Hope this answered your question. Good luck.

Check oil light on 96 cavalier 2.2L


2.2l cavalier engines have an oil level sensor on the front side of the pan just below the starter. make sure it plugged in before checking anything else. if you're going to change a sensor because of "low oil' light, that would be the one.
