Does a 2005 cavalier have a timing belt or chain 2.2 and when do I change it?

This 2.2 Liter engine uses a Timing chain, timing chains are never replaced unless the engine is being overhauled, there is no periodic replacement required like a Timing belt. Engines that use chains are much more durable than those that use belts and last longer per dollar spent on maintenance costs. I wish I had a dollar for every ruined engine due to a failed rubber timing belt.

I wouldn't,, recommended maintenance is in place for a reason,, and this repair is for a good reason, if the timing belt ( or chain) goes out,, damage can happen to the valves, and pushrods which mean added costs , leaving you stuck where ever it happens to go out,

I am told that my "front end bushing" need replacing. Is $1200.00 a reasonable price for this work?

No, that is an outrageous price if you are referring to the control arm bushing. That bushing costs around $65 at a VW dealer and can be bought aftermarket for as little as $15. Takes one hour to replace. So it should cost around $150 at the dealer. $1200 is outrageous.

Does it require tune up

Regular Maintenance is vital to keeping your car on the road. The time and effort you put into keeping up with scheduled maintenance can save you big money in the long run.
Dealer 30k, 60k or 90k mile tune-ups can run from $250 for 3-4 hours of labor and basic maintenance, to over $1,000 at places with high labor costs and additional maintenance services, such as timing belt replacement.
If the mechanic identifies needed repairs, this can add a significant amount to your total.
At 90K repair shops normally replace the timing belt, or timing chain.
Your car require a tune up, if you have more than 30K on it. What kind of tune up your car needs depend on how many miles do you have on your car.

The car is stalling/shutting down while driving and you are just guessing what the problem is.

It may well be that there is an issue with the engine management system , among others.

Don't mess around. Get the car into the dealer and have the issues properly diagnosed and the rectified. Yes it will cost you some money but you cannot expect to run a 6 year old vehicle reliably without incurring significant maintenance costs.

Ok.. i just bought a 2001 z3.Whhether this was a good dicision is debateable. The BMW dealer charges 135.00 for an oil change. Is this not robbery or do I need to learn some things. Also.. what services...

When you consider that dealerships charge $90.00 plus an hour for labor and suggested retail for the filter is probably close to $20.00 and oil is around $3.00 a quart, even at Walmart, then the price doesn't seem out of line. Expensive cars require expensive maintenance. Wait until you need a brake job or one of those silly electronic gimmicks acts up, then you really will be complaining about maintenance costs. In the meantime find yourself a Jiffy Lube.

Maintenance costs

Oil change will cost about $200, tires? depends how and how much you drive and quality you buy. Guess you could spend $200 each. Brakes depend how much you drive but a quality brake job will cost about $1,000. As far as daily driver?well this car is not designed for that, and will probably suffer in stop and go traffic. So would need a tuneup about every 4-6 months at a cost of about $2,000. then you need a mechanic that is trained. Hope you can find one in your area.
