Check for loose nuts coming out of its lines or tighten straps at hoses.
check for leaks at the engine, coolant hoses, water pump, etc.
some times coolant comes from up side down

SOURCE: oil leaks

First of all, which engine does your cavalier have? Some GM engines around that time had problems with the intake manifold gasket leaking oil where the manifold bolted to the top of the engine block, but if I remember correctly, it was in the 3.1 liter V-6 engines. If your car has a 4 cylinder engine, I am not aware of any inherent oil leak problems.
BTW, if your oil light has been on for 2 weeks, without your adding any oil, you probably have more serious problems than just an oil leak by now. Maybe not a solution, but it's a place to start.

SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 chevy malibu, battery light came on

check your serpentine belt it sounds like it may have stretched or broken. Without the belt working properly your car will overheat due to the waterpump not activating and neither will the power steering or alternator

Location of freeze plug on 2001 malibu


I had a 2000 malibu 3.1 and the manifold gasket was leaking. Model years affected, 97-04. Check the recovery coolant tank and if it looks like a milk shake instead of coolant, then you have a bad intake manifold gasket. I replaced mine a few years ago and all was fine. Engines affected are the 2.4-3.1-and 3.5, look very carefully around the intake manifold and you will see it if its leaking! operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks. Because oil will mix with coolant if gasket is bad. Hope this helps you out! Good-Day!

Leaking coolant from above transmission while started or killed


look for heater hose connections first and check these..some models use coolant to warm up/ cool the tbi unit by way of a hose to the base of it or gaskets and passages made into the design of that particular model, if so equipted these gaskets need replacing..some models use a crossover tube between heads in the rear(older buicks had them on v-6 and v8 engines)and they do fail on occaision by rustout or gasket failure..check these and repost the findings please..thnx

I change the themostat hose but its still leaking from under neath on the driver side . and the coolant light comes on. also a awful smell like it burning


It sounds like a leaking intake manifold gasket to me. (Very common on GM V-6 engines) Look with a flashlight and see if you can see antifreeze running over the top of the transmission bell housing. Check both sides. On the side nearest the windshield and the side nearest the radiator.
Don't drive the car with a coolant leak. The aluminum heads are very unforgiving when it comes to overheating.

2002 malibu runs hot.


Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE

Leaking coolant from head gasket area and valve


Well the head gasket job will cover the valve cover gasket ( you have to do one to get to the other) Bring it to a repair shop its about a $1500 job.

I have a 1998 Buick Lesabre that keeps losing antifreeze.


Buick 3.8's are notorious for intake manifold leaks. If you are sure you are not leaking externally (look under the alternator and on the top of the transmission), it could be an intake manifold leak. I've replaced mine...I didn't think it was too hard a job for an amateur.
It could also be a head gasket, but the intake leaks are much more common.
