Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have an automatic 96 Cavalier 2.2 L. Recently I replaced my spark plugs and spark plug wires. My boyfriend went to check one of the spark plug wires. The metal thing inside the wire broke off and was stuck on the spark plug. He thought he fixed it, but all this time it felt like I was running on 3 cyl. I finally just replaced that one spark plug wire and it ran better and I was saving a lot more gas. Then he opened the cap marked ''transmission''. I assume that's where you put the tranny fluid? How do you check the tranny fluid level? Any way, then the next day my car started making this gurgling noise on the passenger front side. What is the gurlging noise? Also, it has been having a hard time starting up. Usually it takes 2-4 tries before I can get the car to start. Is the timing off?
To check level of training fluid warm car up and while engine is running check the dipstick to see if the fluid level is at the top of the area on the stick where the criss cross grooves are, it should say hot or full note wipe stick off at first pull out then recheck it after placing it back in and pulling it back out.
First was the spark plugs set right ?
and the gurgling noise could be a sign that the thermostat is sticking and its most likely the radiator fluid boiling back into the over flow tank if you pop the hood does it stink like radiator fluid and is the over flow tank boiling ?
