Question about 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier
Engine lugs & stalls when coming to a full stop
If you have not done so have the computer tested for trouble codes, Kragen, Auto Zone and others will do this for free. One common problem is the idle speed control valve and the throttle blade get full of sludge, this causes stalling at lower speeds and when the AC is turned on, you can clean them with a can of throttle body cleaner from any auto parts store, carb spray will work as well, have someone hold the engine at a high idle speed, pull the air intake hose off at the engine, then spray the carb spray into the engine, use the whole can, the engine will try to stall, hold the speed up to keep it running, after the can is empty shut the engine down and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, reconnect and drive about 20 miles city and highway, this will reset the idle speed control and the problem should go away.
