The orange check engine light came on the other day..it's a 2002 Chevy Cavalier and it was sitting for about 1 year and a half. I just had it serviced and then this happened. What does it mean?


Have the codes read. Sitting so long could be corrosion at plugs. Which one to check is the problem. Codes will lead you to the right area.

Chevy cavalier 2002 shut off while driving, power steering went out and brakes. i turned car off and it restarted what was it and how can i fix it?


Ther is a problem with some computers in that they shut down the engine for no apparent reason. This problem hounded Kia owners as the engine just stopped at lights but restarted with no problems. Check for any fault codes and check for circuit problems with alternator as some cpu's get their power directly from the alternator and it has to be full voltage or they sense a power failure and shut down.

EGR Vacuum Solenoid, cavalier 1998 standard 2.2 lts.


I believe it is on the pass side of the head.(EGR) exhaust gas recirculator .it alows the engine to re burn left over fuel in the exhaust.unfortunately the pasage way gets cloged with carbon buildup causing egr failure.this is very hard to clean and should not be done by a novice DIY. some times SEAFOAM will clear it out if it is not compleatly cloged it is worth a try.

I just did a code scan on my 1992 Chevy Cavalier RS 6-cylinder and the codes that came back were 32 and 33. What do they mean?


DTC - 32 EGR system failure
DTC - 33 MAP sensor circuit error (signal high indicating low vacuum)

The EGR failure is causing the DTC 33 code to show up. Check the vacuum lines to the EGR valve.

Good luck and keep me posted

They meant the car is running "lean". It is getting to much air or not enough gas to the carburator.
