Engine Oil Capacity for the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier (2.2L 4-cyl engine) is 4 quarts. Its cooling system capacity on the other hand is 10.6 quarts.
Chevrolet Cavalier is GM's volume leader for passenger cars. A rounded body style distinguishes it from the Ford Esc0rt, Dodge Neon and Honda Civic and that's been enhanced for 2000 with revised styling.
Even though Cavalier is not a leader in sophistication, it rides nicely on most road surfaces and it comes standard with anti-lock brakes which have been upgraded this year for improved performance.

It loses its lubricating qualities and carbonizes under high temperatures. Check out some tips on how to maintain your engine at Samarins.com.
