Since your complain is on the driver side sticking brake, so i do not suspect that the failure in on your hydrovac, it could be the that your driver side brake caliper piston needs seal kit replacement thats why when you press the brake and when you depress it the piston doesnt retracts. you need to remove the driver side wheel and remove the brake caliper assembly, take off the brake pads, press the brake till the piston comes out, inspect the piston condition and change it if damage along with the seal kit. make sure to bleed the brake before driving the car to release presence of air in your brake system.

Chevy cavalier jerks when stopping


Possible brake issue caused by warped rotor or sticking brake caliper. If it pulses when braking have the rotors turned or replace them. Would also replace the brake pads while you have it apart. Old pads should be the same thickness for both inboard and outboard pad. If one is thinner than the other it is an indication that the caliper is sticking or hanging up.

jack up car and remove wheels, use a stick to depress brake pedal about an inch this will keep fluid from running out during replacement, loosen bleeder screws to relieve pressure, then ddisconnect brake hose at caliper, replace the calipers and reinstall hoses with new gaskets, remove brake hold down and bleed passenger side then drivers side.

Woom woom problem front end of 2002 chevy cavalier drivers side


If its stick shift you have a problem with the flywheel. Also make sure you have enough fluid in your transmission. If stick shift. Pull fill plug and if its silver looking paint. You have damage to your transmission. If its automatic your transmission is likely dry or your pump is not working. Check to see if your e-brakes are not locked into place. Jack the vehicle up on the front. make sure its stable...and put into gear. See if you hear any noise. If not, the problem is in the rear. With the cold, cables like e-brake can freeze up and lock the back wheels enough to try and brake the car. Its like running your car with the e-brake. remember that your e-brake should not be over 10 clicks and should have tension from the moment it first clicks. Also, many shops do free inspection/check to evaluate the problem. This maybe the best thing for you if you don't know what to look for. Rate plz

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

Chevy Cavalier 2001 ABS Brake problem


You don't say what brakes.

I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.

Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.

My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.

You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
