Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I'm so silly. I never even mentioned it was a 2.2 liter engine. OOPS
I'll have to look at the hoses. But the belt looks pretty good, maybe a little loose. No cracks in it.
After I get it running. I'm taking it to my old Jiffy Lube manager. He will give me a good deal on some other stuff like that. Being my B-day is in a few days. I'm going to try to talk him in to, using my car as a train tool.
To get his "team" more in sync. He'd have us come in after close (he did it once.)
We each took our vehicle in to run through the "lube team" procedures.
I got my Olds and oil change, he got a fuel inject. another got their rear differential etc.
I'm going to see of he'll do the oil change, A/C check including tightening the belt. Maybe an air filter at cost, wiper blades cheap. Maybe an engine flush? Of coarse I'd pay cost for what ever wasn't an exact inventory. (He was so good at keeping an eye on everything. Not a lot of waist, except for an occasional thief.)You know how that goes.
Did I mention he gets a kick out of changing belts faster than even super man? He thinks thier cool.(sick-o)
Thanks for the info. on where to look, and I'll keep you informed.
Your pretty cool, not an ounce of impatients in your messages.
Talk to you soon.
Hi Kirsten, Sounds like the JL manager is a good guy, great that you can go to him for a deal and some help. If you are thinking of having him flush the system, you should be a able to save a little when you have the water pump installed by telling them not to put coolant in, just water. If you've been refilling the leaking system w/ water only, you have to get the 50/50 mix of water/coolant back in, as it will protect your engine from corrosion, will run cooler, and it won't freeze up in the winter (Phoenix?). So have super belt man do a cooling system flush right after the new pump is on (well, in a week). Oh, and by the way, Big Bro is watching. I believe they deleted all of your ratings except one. I guess they figure it's one problem, so only one rating allowed. No biggie, just interesting. bye curt
