Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.
-Does this vehicle have the 2.2L or the 2.4L engine?
-Does it need the complete exhaust- from exhaust manifold to tail pipe?
Ok. Great. Thank-you. Please give me one moment to type out some info for you. Sit tight one minute... I'll be right back!
Thanks for holding.
The exhaust isn't that bad to replace. Front pipe is around $94. Converter is around $103. Muffler is around $68. There are some gaskets and hardware in between which adds roughly another $18. And then an hour labor to install it all.
As for the vehicle itself- the Cavalier was always a good, strong, reliable vehicle. The 2.4L engine is a good solid engine. And with only 120,000 miles on it, it's still got a way to go. If you're going to pay $800 for it, this woul dbring it to around $1100 after exhaust. Which isn't that bad, but seeing as it needs a few hundred in repairs, might be worth trying to get the seller down to somewhere like $600 or $700. If you can end up around $1000 after repairs... that's a fair deal.
