Prompt please where can I find a repair manual Chevrolet Cavalier 1989

You can usually get a Haynes manual at the auto parts stores or any big box store like Wal-mart that has an automotive section. This is the most common manual and does a good job at helping with most average mechanical repairs.

A cheaper alternative that you can get immediately is to sign on to "" It costs about $30US and is very car model specific. It has most common repairs with diagrams although if you are wanting to do major work it may come up short.

Both asume that you have some mechanical abilities so simple things like how to change oil won't be covered. They are also a little short on wiring diagrams.

If you need wiring diagrams check with "" They sell original dealer service manuals, but they also have a large selection of just wiring diagrams for about $15US. Hope this helps.

I have changed the fuel pump twice on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter. I have also changed the fuel filter and the relay switch. The fuel pump wont kick on when I turn the key on.

The original Chevy pump motor has a good life. Running the vehicle out of fuel, which will actually run the pump in a dry state can shorten the expected life span considerably. Gasoline is a petroleum product and actually lubricates the inside of the fuel pump. The more you run the vehicle low on fuel or out of fuel, the more damage will occur and the quicker the pump will fail. Try replacing the pump and follow the above procedures for a good performance of the pumps. Cavalier fuel pumps available here

How much should a fuel pump and a fuel filter cost to replace in a '02 chevy malibu? my son was driving it and it just cut out and died. I tried restarting, and it turned over, caughed, sputtered, but did...

I would first make sure that fuel waas your problem by checking for pressure and how much you are getting. I am not sure what the average labor rate in your area is as it differs everywhere but the labor hours per my guide to replace both pump & filter is 2.8 hours. Make sure they go on and replace the screen at the pump if you are changing the pump. I hope this helped and good luck.

The car ran out of gas, and after putting new gas in the car it started up then died. I took it to a mechanic he said he tapped on the fuel pump and it started right up, but suggested I replace the pump....

yes. the pump has gone out on the car it is a comon problem on chevy's it is located in the fuel tank under the car. get ready to spend some money they ain't cheap and I would recomend replacing your fuel filter every other oil change because its the life of the fuel pump. and the aftermarket pumps aren't worth a dime. the pump cost on average 234.95 at most parts stores we are a shop here in mulberry and we charge a flat rate of 110 on any intake fuel pump their a pain to change. hope this helps.

What size is the drive axle nut on an 02 chevy cavalier

It's either 32 or 36mm. I believe 32. You can "borrow" the socket size that you need from your local AutoZone parts store.

You pay for the tool, then when you bring it back, they give you your money back. It's a program they have for tools that the average person doesn't use more than once or twice.

I am a mechanic in a shop in my area and replacing a water pump on your car would not cost that much money. I checked the prices of a water pump and thermostat and I would not charge more than $250 for the job. I pays 1.5 hours labor to replace the pump. I hope this is helpful.

What is the average cost for labor and parts to fix the exhaust?

It depends on the area your in as to how much labor and parts are being charged.
here in waco tx. a factory installed exhaust would be around 600 - 800 dollars,a aftermarket exhaust would be about half that.
