Question about 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier
Heres the more info on that problem
for the 89 z24 cavalier problem
its just white cuz i took the cat off..
cuz i thought my problem 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
Loss of power could be a result of a plugged cat, but not the smoke,still leaning toward a head gasket or cracked head. Remove all of the spark plugs. Pressurize the radiator with approximately 15 pounds of pressure and wait for approximately 1/2 hour to 1 hour then crank the engine over and watch to see if coolant comes out of the spark plug holes. This will tell you if your problem is a head gasket or possibly a cracked head. And just on a side note, unless it was a typo, an 89 should only be carburated or have TBI, they didnt have injectors on those models yet, and off the top of my head I dont think most vehicles were using crank sensors either then, but I'd have to look that up to know for sure.
