Engine Performance problem
2004 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 98.5K miles
I am an extremely novice of very limited mechanical ability, however I can follow instructions. My 2004 Chevy Cavalier(2.2 liter, auto transmission, ) ac, two wheel front wheel drive[98,500 mileage] is having serious mpg drop over the last 1500 miles and I know that the 100, 00 mile scheduled " tuneup" will be coming up very shortly. I suspect plugs are getting in bad shape, but I also suspect that the fuel filter may be the culprit as I am not, repeat not experiencing any rough engine, or trouble starting it, or loss of power to speak of so I am focusing on the fuel filter for now.I have no idea if their is one or two fuel filters on the 2.2 l engine and where they are located. Can you help me to find the fuel filter(s) so I can replace it or them to see if that is in fact the culprit. Thank you very much and I hope you choose to have a very, nice day if you want to.
