SOURCE: how to replace a water pump on a 1997 chevy cavalier

the best thing to help would be a 'Haynes repair manual', avialable at your local auto parts store. but replacing a water can be difficult if your not particularly mechanically inclined, because it often requires the removal of several other componets as well as flushing the cooling system

SOURCE: WHAT TYPE OIL DO I PUT IN 96 CHEVY CAVALIER

I grew up in wisconsin myself and it does make a big difference to what type of oil you use. in your vehicle 5w-30 is recommended however during the summer i use a 10w30 and in winter SAE30 this is in my experience the best way to maintain the performanced of your vehicle and keep the wear and tear to a minimum

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier gear shifter is really stiff going into each gear, why?


If it's an automatic transmission....
Try a SMALL amount of light oil on the transmission shift selector on the transmission. (follow the cable in the engine compartment down to the transmission) If its covered in mud and dirt, clean it off with water. Also try oiling the same cable internally.

What kind of oil does my 1997 chevy cavalier use?


I would say use 5w-20 synthetic but thats because i prefer synthetic. realistically you can use conventional 5w-20. Depending on the condition of your vehicle you might want to use 10w-30 during hot months of the year just because oil is thinner during those times, at start up.

I have a chevy cavalier and my oil light keeps coming on can you tell me what may be the problem?


The obvious problem is you are low on oil. If that is OK then you could have a bad sending unit. Worse case is that your not getting enough oil pressure and the engine may be getting tired or the oil pump is weak. If you try a thicker oil like 10W40 or 10W50 and see if the problem goes away.
