Chevy cavalier 2002

Asked by John Aug 27, 2019 at 12:29 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just purchased a 2002 Chevy cavalier that initially
ran fine. When driving it, there is a ticking noise
that increases with speed and drive and when the
ac is turned on, the power steering and all tmatart
to become unresponsive to a degree. Turned it off
and was fine however it did actually stall for a
moment as well (currently parked right after). Any

1 Answer


The ticking could be a bad pulley on the serpentine belt. The fact that adding the AC causes problems with other belt-driven accessories makes me suspect that the pulley might be causing such force that it's wearing the belt and causing it to slip with the added resistance placed on it by the AC.
