Asked by May 28, 2015 at 01:29 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

off and the repair shop guy first started out with "well that was broken before we fixed
it" WHAT? then l said, "well that isn't important and won't make any difference." I don't
think they just throw pieces into a car for no reason. I see that a pvc valve will also
keep a car from starting if not connected, so that may have been the issue all along,
but even if not, what are some of the things that Could happen without the valve
attached? My son has super glued the thing back into place and we are hoping that will
hold as my finances are now depleted. Obviously not taking back to the same shop,
so just a heads up for the next shop I take to? Don't want to be taken advantage of but
need my car to run. Thank you.

I meant to say "He said that it wasn't important and wouldn't make any difference." Not that I said that. Thanks.
