Question about 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 1989 Cavalier Z24 with a 3.1 and it idles rough, hesitation when you accelerate, and a raw fuel smell coming out of the exhaust. I changed TPS sensor, IAC valve, MAP sensor, EGR valve, plugs and wires, and O2 sensor and i still can find the problem.
Its just white cuz i too the cat off..
cuz i thought my proble could have been to do with the cat...
cuz i lost power driving up hills and on highways now it just will start the die right away
or start and idle really bad...
i was thinking crank sensor.. or injectors

It sounds like you may have a broken exhaust valve spring, although, like you have found out problems like this can be very hard to diagnose, but anyone with a compression tester and couple other tools could find out if this is the case. Hope this gives you another idea where to look.
