Thank you, Tom. I am a single mom who bought a '99 Cavalier for my 16 yr old son and we are trying to learn as we go. I appreciate that you didn't treat me like I was stupid. We all have to start somewhere and you helped us.

Unfortunately the car didn't come with the owners manual. As for coolant leaks I've already had to have two hoses replaced. I'll have him listen for any knocking. Thanks again.

there also bad for there headgaskets going in them so watch out for leaks around the the head where the head meets the block. if that starts happening and u dont want to put alot of money into it sell it cuz it will cost at least 1000 or more to fix its a big job and there not alot of macanics that will work on a 2.4 engine but if the car is well maintained and not beat should b ok.
