Whats the oil capacity on a 2003 chevrolet cavalier

Hello firemancop91: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The proper amount of oil when changing the oil filter at the same time is 5 qts. I would put 4 1/2 qts. oil in and start the engine. Recheck after you start the engine. Fill as needed. The reason is you can not buy a 1/2 qt. of oil. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received as this way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Bad water pump on a 2001 cavalier

Then you can do this one is the info:

When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. 2.2L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly drain the cooling system into an approved container.
  3. Remove all accessory drive belts or the serpentine belt.
  4. Remove the alternator and bracket. For details, please refer to Section 2 of this manual.
  5. Unscrew the water pump pulley mounting bolts and then pull off the pulley.
  6. Unfasten the mounting bolts, then remove the water pump.
  7. Using a putty knife, clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
