Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 96 calvalier with a 2.2 and it has been not starting or stalling after it starts then the other day it stalled and then started back up ran really rough and then it died so i towed it home and pulled out the spark plugs three of them where smashed so i put new ones in and it did it again i dont know what is going on i have changed the plug wires and the coil packs
The spark plugs had damage to them ?.
First thing i would look at is the timing belt. not sure if it is a belt or chain but i'm willing to bet it has slipped or broken.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
