Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1999 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 072010

Cavalier 2.2L I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles


My car refuses to start under certain conditions. On a cold day, then it fires up but if it is hot or raining then the engine just winds away on the starter. Fresh plugs, fuel injector cleaner, nothing works on fixing this problem.

Cavalier LS 2.4L

My 1999 Cavalier turns over for a long time before starting(50% of the time). this problem wont happen when others are around but my obd 2 says the timing, O2 sensor readings, and idle rpm all change constantly while idling. its all one stupid thing im guessing
