problem #1

Aug 042007

Cavalier 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles
I have 2004 Chevy Cavalier with less than 24K mileage. On August 4, 2007, the clutch pad suddenly did not back up on my way home. I cannot change the speed. When aaa guy came to tow, he found out there was no hydaulic liquid. I bought the liquid and added it into the hydraulic liquid reservoir. When I started my car and pressed the clutch, the aaa guy found all the liquid was coming out from the clutch line between master cyclinder to transmission. When I checked the line, I found out the clutch line was touching the wire box corner all the time. There is a hole in that touching point. It is very clear that this is a design problem for this kind of car. The GM Chevy dealer said the purchased date had passed three years. No warranty at all. When I search the web for help. I found the other people complain the same problem too. If you need more detail information, I still keep the broken part. I can send the picture or the broken part. Thanks, Jun shen
