#1711 of 2171 Re: 1995 Cavalier with New Compressor -Shimmying
May 30, 2005 (5:46 am)
If there are any mechanics out there who are reading this, PLEASE HELP. My car had a new compressor put in last week. It has has a lot of work done to it (see my previous posts above-2 of them). Now it shimmies like a Bronco (and I don't mean the Bronco vehicle). There is now a new noise (LOUD click click) from under the hood and I have no clue how to proceed. I have the car presently at another mechanics who is trying to figure out what Mechanic 1 did wrong when he installed the compressor as the vehicle didn't seem to have any more problems, but now it does. Any suggestions? I tried to take the advice of another poster but was unable to take it back to a Chevy dealer, there isn't one locally and I'd have no ride back If anyone has any "suspicion" of what is happening PLEASE RESPOND. Thank you very much.
#1712 of 2171 Dome light and key / headlights chime don't work

1993 Chevy Cavalier
-When leaving headlights on or key in ignition, the chime does not work if you open either door.
-When opening either door, the dome light does not work.
-When putting gearshift to Drive, doors no longer lock and safety belt warning lamp does not light.
Dome light and door locks will work operate manually. All fuses look fine. I can't find a mechanical switch on the door that controls the chimes if the door is left open !

you might want to think about the coil packs because if it is missing and they changed the plugs and wires it could either be just that coil pack or the ignition control module because i have a 1992 z24 cavalier with a 3100 and from my past experiences with the dis ignition systems that could very well be your problem. a coil pack for mine costs about 50 bucks and the ignition control module for me was about 150.00 it may be higher since yours is newer but try that best of luck to you dude

To add onto this statement...I am in a Cavalier rental right now and all I can say is that is a very scary car to ride in. It has 16K miles on it and it drives like it has 160,000 miles on it. It's cheap feeling, rattly sounding and drives terrible for a 2005 car. I would go with a 1995 Civic instead of buying this car, incentives or not.
Seriously, what is there to like about this car except the price?

To each his own. Personally, I really like my 2004 Cavalier LS. It drives just as well as the Civic, Elantra, and Forenza I tested, I think. The interior quality isn't the best, but that's not a problem to me. Regarding rattles, I have hardly any. Currently, the car has about 9,000 miles.
To tell you the truth though, the incentives were a factor of why I chose this car.

I would like to know how to post a photo in this forum such as you did with the interior of your Cavalier trunk.
I know that I can send an email that will allow reverse access to photos I have in a photo hosting site (I presently use "Ofoto"). But I would like to place a selected photo directly into an Edmunds posting.
Can you give me a simple, simple explanation of how this is done?
Or, can anyone else help me on this?

Did you not get my email? You didn't tell me you already have a site for picture hosting, that's great. I assume the photo you want to use is posted there? If not, that's where it needs to be.
All you need to do is click on the Img button below the post box, type the address where your picture is stored and click on the Img button again. Then post and you'll see the picture.
The address where your picture is stored is going to be something like http://www.ofoto.com/yourdirectory/yourphoto.jpg where you use the appropriate directory and picture names.

I respect that!!! I was just curious on what cavalier owners like in their vehicles. Enjoy your ride. I will continue to enjoy my '04 Passat as well!!

Your email was received and thanks for your further followup here
I still do not understand where I get the "address" for my desired photo. I don't see anywhere in Ofoto where an address is spelled out. Please excuse my failure to grasp this.
