Question about Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I followed a link to ask you about a 2004 chevrolet cavalier that has an automatic transmission issue. I saw that you had tried to answer the same question for someone else. It will not shift from frist to second gear and the speedometer is no longer working. When in drive it slips into a neutral (between gears I think) like state and the motor revs. Any ideas what I should check. It is my Mothers car and she (and I) can not afford a costly repair bill. Thank you very much, Darrel Clark

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.

I can help you with this. However you need to give me a little more info please....when did this happen? while you were driving? is there gas in the car? do you smell gas? does it make any noises? is the car an automatic or manual transmission?

Engine does not turn over


Sounds like you need to replace the neutral safety switch it is normaly located on the automatic transmission, they are not overly expensive from auto part shops. Too test the neautral safety switch use a multimeter in the ohms position it should measure low (basicly 0) in one position and high in the other.

Can the 2004 cavalier be flat towed behind a motorhome Towing procedures for 2004 cavalier behind Recreation Vehicle.


If it is automatic the quick is a two wheeled tow dolly. Or if that is not desirable then a RV repair shop can recommend a towing package that will disengage the torque converter in the transmission. Either way is about 1K.

To check this out you must remove the shift handle by using a butter knife to remove a horseshoe clip facing the very front of the handles shank. Then remove the shifter plate to check the cables
