Where is the ETS sensor located on this vehicle? The ETS "Check Engine" light came on 3 days ago and the gears seem to shift hard and change from 1st to 2nd to 3rd and so on. It is an automatic transmission, the fluid is clean and I have never had any problems with the transmission. Is it possible that the ETS sensor would cause this hard shifting?
The windshield wipers on my 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier stopped working starting first with the passenger side and then later on the drivers side.

He said that he would put it on once I get the piece but I don't ...

Hello, I have a chevy cavalier 2003. This is more of a general question on how you would repair something so I'm not sure if the type of car will matter here.

I'm not sure how anyone would go about fixing something like that or what type of car care expert I ...
Hello, its been about two weeks now and for the first time my check engine light came on. I got an oil change soon after the light came on and nothing happened.

My chevy Cavalier once had a front grille (or whatever the part is where the logo is attached to) and I guess someone took it off at some point because I would have noticed if it fell off while driving.

I have a Chevy Cavalier 2003 and there was a point in time I believe when my AC wasn't working at all.

Before that, I could feel cold air blowing out but only if I was driving fast on the highway. ...
