Question about Chevrolet Cavalier
You replaced the water pump i presume?Are all the bolt tighten to the correct torque?I just done a water pump replacement on a 97 Cavalier and i had one bolt loose and thought that i had misdiagnosed my coolant leak problem when in fact,i had just not installed the pump tight enough.Also,you may want to use silicon sealant instead of the supplied paper gasket,i've had better luck with sealant rather than the paper gasket.
