Hi,
How many miles are on the vehicle? There could be a few reasons. Not regularly changing the coolant/oil. Also it is possible that the head gasket could have had a slight defect that caused this. Any overheating could cause this as well.
Thank you,
Lee

I have a 2000 Cavalier Z24 that leaks oil bad. The oil drips off of the bottom of the engine between the oil pan and transmission. I also noticed some oil at the top where the upper cooling hose is.


With this age of engine, the most likely cause is plugged up drain holes in the head. This allows the oil that goes to the cam and valve mechanism to be retained under the valve cover and present a challenge to the old valve cover gaskets,. Recommend you remove the valve cover, make sure the oil drain holes are clear and replace the valve cover gasket.

2004 Cavalier broken rocker arms after head gasket repair.


Rocker arm issues are common in that car. They can happen without any reason. This is not going to be cheap to look at. When the head was repaired it had to be removed. The timing chain might not have been properly tensioned. That would cause the timing chain to slip and then you have pistons slapping valves and spark plugs. This cause rocker arms and pushrods to bend or break and also can damage pistons.

Head gaskets


There is really no difference between a blown or cracked head gasket. In either case the gasket would have to be replaced. Generally the term "cracked" is used when referring specifically to the cylinder head/s its/them selves. If the cylinder head is cracked it is a much more expensive repair.

We changed the head gasket and put everything to gether now it doesn't want to idle right and stall on me in low idle


Vacuum leakage. Check throttle body mounting bolts, and intake manifold for proper seal. The new head gasket leaking could also cause this problem.
