Problem with my 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L four cylinder. I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier that had an inoperable charging system. I replaced the alternator and the battery and there was no change.

Chevy Aveo Has Noises Over Bumps

I have a Chevy Aveo and it has been making noise when I go over bumps. Something has to be wrong and after many trips to the dealer I just don't know what to do. The first time they said there isn't anything wrong with it. I brought it back and they replaced the strut mounts. Still had the noise, so again I went back.
