You will need to look in your owners manual and maybe for an advisement phone into a Chevy dealership and ask ...... your engine size will actually have no affect in what size of pad you must use and sometimes the size will be posted on the pad that is currently installed

Chevy cavalier jerks when stopping

Possible brake issue caused by warped rotor or sticking brake caliper. If it pulses when braking have the rotors turned or replace them. Would also replace the brake pads while you have it apart. Old pads should be the same thickness for both inboard and outboard pad. If one is thinner than the other it is an indication that the caliper is sticking or hanging up.

Replaced break rotor and pads on a 2001 cavalier 2.4 l. non leaks and no air after bleeding. now I have no breaks unless the motor is off

There is no need to bleed anything if only replacing rotors and pads. I suspect you got air in the system when trying to bleed it. Im only guessing here, I cant see what you did.
When motor is running the engine provides a power boost to the pedal. When engine is off there is no power boost, so pedal feels heavy, but does not mean brakes are working then.

I suggest you watch this Youtube video on correct way to bleed brakes, and hopefully fix the problem.

Chevy Cavalier 2001 ABS Brake problem

You don't say what brakes.

I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.

Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.

My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.

You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.
