I have a 2005 chevy cavalier. I was riding around with very little oil if any and on a terrible tire that made my whole car shake! After a few times driving It like that I started hearing a rattling noise in my dash. I parked it and now it will not start. It tries to start but the entire motor shakes hard and it makes the initial start up sounds but wont completely turn over to start it.... everything inside still works.. ie radio, air, lights ect.

I have a Chevy Aveo and it has been making noise when I go over bumps. Something has to be wrong and after many trips to the dealer I just don't know what to do. The first time they said there isn't anything wrong with it. I brought it back and they replaced the strut mounts. Still had the noise, so again I went back.

Problem with my 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L four cylinder. I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier that had an inoperable charging system. I replaced the alternator and the battery and there was no change. I soon found out that the alternator was not getting it's start signal from the PCM. I know this because I saw a diagram on the charging system and the red and gray wire that make up the connector come straight from the PCM.
