Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I had an issue a few days ago with my wife's Cavalier. It's a 2004, with a manual transmission. It started with the car not wanting to go into gear, then yesterday the clutch pedal went straight to the floor. I talked with my wife and she explained she had the same problem last year and that it was the master cylinder. I did some research and found out that when Chevy installed these parts on the assembly line they routed the cable (or line) across a flat, sharp piece of metal. The car has 92K miles and I was wondering if this would be an item of concern for a recall if so many people are experiencing the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.

2004 Chevy Cavalier engine light and trac off light

One year ago---your check engine light came on
The PO405 code was for an EGR Valve issue
No mention--- if you had that fixed

A Few Days Ago---you get Trac Light on,that is part of
the ABS Braking System
Now that system has to be diagnosed & repaired,not just
continue to use the car,actually make the repair, before
you do some damage or can't stop the car & worse things happen

Changing Trans Fluid---is NOT a FIX for anything,but should
be done on all vehicles every 3 years.

If the Engine Management System isn't working correctly,then
your trans won't work as it should either

You need to be proactive & immediately have any abnormal
operation or check light problems, at least diagnosed in a few days
of noticing them

You need to stop using any car that isn't 100% & have it
repaired as soon as possible.

Not wait weeks or years.
Being 9 years old, the trans may also have it's own issues

My car doesn't want to start, all the power works but there is no crank.,A few weeks ago I had to crank about 3 times before it actually started.. Now it isn't cranking...

Sounds like you need a new starter - remove it (usually 2 bolts and a electrical plug) and take it to autozone, checker..... for a free check.
