Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
MY TRAC OFF AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AT THE SAME TIME. AND NOW MY CAR SHIFTS VERY HARD. AND IT ACT LIKE IT DOESN'T WANT TO CHANGE GEARS. I WENT AND GOT A DIAGNOSITIC TEST DONE AT ADVANCE AUTO PARTS. AND THE CODES CAME UP THAT THE VACUMM HOSE MAY BE CRACKS AND THAT I HAD A BAD GAS CAP, MY MAP SENSOR IS GONE, SOMETHING ABOUT THROTTLE/ PEDAL. AND THEN I HAD A DIAGNOSTIC TEST DONE AT ANOTHER PLACE AND THEY SAID THAT I HAD A SHORTAGE IN MY WIRE HARNESS. SO RIGHT NOW I AM CLUELESS ABOUT WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY CAR. NOT TO MENTION AGAIN IT IS A 2003 CHEVY CAVALIER.
THOSE ARE THE CODES THAT I GOT AT ADVANCE. THE OTHER PLACE DIDN'T GIVE ME ANY THEY JUST SAID THAT IT HAS A SHORTAGE IN THE WIRE HARNESS.

My suggest is to have a professional look at it. You may have some serious electrical issues. If you not sure how to look for it, I would have someone look at it. Or you can purchase a scanner and repair manual here and I can try to walk you through it.
