There could be a simple fix, you may have had a bad batch of fuel go in at some time with a large moisture content, that could be the case, also it could be carbon build up on the injectors, Shoot down to the parts store and get yourself a bottle of injector cleaner and octane booster, give the car a good drive and see how you go. Good luck

1999 chevy cavalier fuel gage


Most of the time the level sensor in side of the fuel tank is the problem. I'd say 1 out of 10 the cluster is bad. But with the way you say it was acting up before hand I'd put my money on the level sensor and not the cluster. The fuel tank will need to come out of the car to fix this. There is not access door to the fuel pump.

Possibly the clunking noise may be your control arm bushings being bad. As for the check engine light, get the code read and go from there.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

96 CHEVY CAVALIER. R&R DRIVE AXLE SHAFTS. AUTO TRANS.


If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .
