Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
Car has been overheating slightly and has been hard to start in the mornings, with engine rattling after first starting. This morning it did the same but continued this all day and eventually stalled and would not start back up. Tries to start but will not stay started. Could this be a head gasket or something else? What is most likely problem?
Ouch! Rattling is tappets usually due to low oil. Could be a number of things. Blown head gasket is one, burnt out valve or worn cam. Your oil pump may not be working also check oil level. I think there is probably some serious damage the Chev motors are strong they will drive to self destruction. If there is knocking on the bottom then you are looking at a rebuild.

Testimonial: "had chevy check the codes and it was the brake sensor. "
You need to get the computer scanned. This can be done at Auto Zone or similar parts stores free of charge. More than likely you will just need new spark plugs and/or plug wires but I cannot be certain without the engine code.
Hope this helps, remember to rate this answer.

on your next fuel up add 93 octane fuel and a bottle of Fuelinjecto cleaner (not Octane Booster). This did the trick on my 95 blazer

Start with replacing the fuel filter. The Aveo fuel filter is located passenger-side rear, in front of the
If there is no filter there, then the filter is a non serviceable filter and is integrated with the fuel sending unit. Your going to have to replace the fuel sending unit if the fuel pressure is slow, start with running fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system for the next few fill up's and hope that will clear up the issues your having.
The other thing to is that your IAC (idle air control) valve may be dirty and is stuck close, you can try cleaning it by spraying Throttle body cleaner through the throttle body, paying attention to the IAC passageway. A dirty of faulty EGR valve will also do the same thing.
Start with the simple and inspect to see if you do have a external fuel filter, and inspect the wire leads to the IAC, EGR and clean them with throttle body cleaner. Don't forget to run the fuel injector cleaner through your gas tank.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.
