Engine sizes for the vehicle ranged from 1.8 liter through to 3.1 liter, depending on the year of production and model. A range of transmission options were also available from 3 to 5 speed in manual and automatic. Front disc and rear drum brakes are a standard feature, as well as ABS. The Chevrolet Cavalier repair manual from Haynes provides you with fully researched maintenance, servicing and repairs guidance, from full breakdown to rebuild.
