Does anyone know where I can get a list of small sedans (2007 model year only) that have traction control?

Under the hood there should be a set up where you have 2 sensors pluging into I am not sure if it is the same on a 2002, however my 1997 and my 2000 cavaliers have it, one will be for your abs and the other for your traction control if you take out the sensor plug then your traction control will stay off and same with the abs. You may run into a problem with your low trac. light staying on then

i have a 2002 chevrolet cavalier and i made my short ram intake.. i used the existing intake pipe, and basically slapped on a cone on the end of it.. lol.. to me intakes just make the car sound smoother.. not any faster.. and i get a TINY bit better gas millage.. a full metal pipe would be better but mine does the trick lol.. mines a short ram intake btw, not a cold air intake

do I got a stumper for you all. my buddy has a car that i was going to buy for my son, its a 2002 cavalier, 2.2L, standard. My friend was gettting the work done on it as it had a clutch that was going, so the mechanics put a new one in, when there they wondered why the car wouldnt start and found bent valves, my buddy bought new valves installed them and they bent. So he bought another motor(used), and only used the intake off the old one, installed it took it for a ride around the block twice and turned it off,everything was fine. went to start it an hr later to bring it back in the garage and it woudnt start. got it in and did a compression test and the car now has no compression on the intake side of the valves again. any help would be great.

Question: was the timing ever checked on both motors?

If the valves are bent it would mean he would not be getting compression and the car won't start maybe run as it has for a little while but then die. Check the timing as it certainly sounds like it.
