Like most cars, the Chevrolet Cavalier requires a tuneup at proper intervals to keep the engine running smoothly and efficiently. A tuneup on the Cavalier consists of cleaning the battery and changing the spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, air filter and fuel filter. After a tuneup has been performed on the car, continue to perform regular maintenance as recommended by Chevrolet. The maintenance intervals can be found in the owner’s manual.
