Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Bent my mirror... oops.

I have a 2000 Chevy Cavalier I bent my mirror back and the adjusting thing inside popped out.  I managed to get the rod back in place, but I was wondering how I can connect it again so that the mirror works. Currently the rod/adjusting thing inside the car doesn't move the mirror anymore. 
Clearly i dont know anything about cars, so steps to fix it in a 'for dummies' fashion may help.

If they are manual mirrors and they still work then it will be ok you probably just stretched the cable a little.

What is causing loud knocking?


If you went off the road and the snow jammed into the engine compartment look for something bent and striking when the engine is on. If you find nothing bent or broken and the noise is coming from inside the engine you may have a bent valve or connecting rod. When an engine is abruptly stopped thing can get damaged. Take a wood shaft like a broom handle and place it near the bottom of the engine when running on the block and place you hand on the end of it and then place your ear on your hand and lesion for a knock. If in the bottom could be a bent connecting rod or also called a piston rod. If noise is in the top more likely and bent valve and the engine may run rough. If you not sure have a mechanic lesion to it. You can consult your repair manual for further test. Good luck.

Is there anyway that i can fix bent push rods ?


There is no way to repair push rods. If they are bent they need to be replaced. However, the hundred-dollar question is "Why were they bent?" The only thing that will normally bend a push rod is if the pistons hit the valves and compressed and bent the rods. If the push rods are bent, you should go the extra distance to inspect the valves/pistons for damage as well.

2001 chevy cavalier rear ended truck with hitch, which went through my bumper and bent some things along with puncturing my radiator


The bars are likely part of what is called your core support. They are structural items needed to maintain the dimensions of the fit of the rest of the front end parts.

1988 prelude p side headightl mechenizime slopy when fully open


Oops anyhow i just posted the same question .our problem starts by putting the hood holder rod next to the headlight instead of next to the battery when we close our hood then our next problem is we turn our lights on well the hood holder rod gets in a bind when it tries to open .soo the short of it is that it gets bent so no guarantee adjusting it will work .that being said this process should work perfect on the drivers side .for the passengers side it just depends how many times it was put on the wrong side and tried to turn on the lights and how badly the mechanism was bent!!!!!!!

You're going to have to take the inside door panel off. Something, probably a rod, has either bent, broken or come unhooked.
