Try flushing the radiator. It may need cleaning. Also even if fan is working it may not be pulling enough air to cool radiator.
your radiator cap may need replacing if system isn't holding pressure.

Fuel gauge goes down at stop but rises again when accelerating.

Needle should move a little bit upon stop/go.If it is a lot would have to say it is the potentiometer in the sending unit fuel pump.

I have a 2000 chevy cavalier. The cluster started acting up. When I stop like at a red light the temperature gauge drops and the theft light, check gauges light, and service light comes on. When I give it...

I'd have to check your charging system, at idle. Any applicable trouble codes? At idle, I'd want to see the generator out-put over 13 volts, hopefully, much over.
You may want to check instrument cluster wiring connector for good voltage and ground?
Check belt for generator, correct tension? Just my opinion.

I have a 2000 Chevy Cavalier z24 it is making a squealing noise when I give it gas, so we have changed the Idler Pulley because that needed to be replaced, and changed the Alternator, because the bearing...

Without hearing the squealing the only things I could suggest would be the other rotating components in your system like the AC compressor/Water pump/ Power Steering pump. Could also be a bad tensioner. Hope this helps, good luck

Hey Chevy Minivan heater dont work properly

Chevy made some weak intake gaskets on 3.1 and 3.4. My guess is that the intake gasket is weak and/or leaking and it is letting pressure out somewhere. At idle maybe the system pressure is to little to push hot coolant into the heater core.

oh ok this is simple u need to put a new fuel filter on there it has a bad fuel filter on there try that out if not it is the fuel pump but try the fuel filter after that and the fuel pump if it still has a problem it is the gauge and try to put mid grade cause it causes less break downs for your car cause it doesnt mess up ur fuel filter

1992 Chevy Lumina will not start when temp is below 0 degrees

Try changing the fuel filter, water trapped in it can freeze. Its a 92 and probably time for a fuel pump. They don't like water either.(Meythonol Fuel) Always change fuel filter when adding antifreeze to fuel

Cavalier dies

you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.
