It sounds like your car is running rich, which means it's running with to much gas to run the engine. If there an Auto Zone in your area, have then scan the car for any codes which should explain why the car is running rich. Auto Zone scan free of charge and hope there is a code in the history that can explain why it's running rich. The most common cause is a faulty O2 sensor or a dirty MAF sensor which can be cleaned with MAF cleaner that you can buy at Auto Zone and i am sure the guys there can help you determine the cause better then i can since i not there. Please keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon and save you some money. Good luck friend. Oh and the other thing to look out for too is have the guy's at Auto Zone locate your fuel pressure regulator and check to see that the vacuum tube has not fallen off or that there is no cracks in the vacuum line. Have them also check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve and bat an eye, it always works for the girl on me LOL. Good luck once again.

1999 cavalier battery problems

OK first you sound knowlegdeable so i would say double check you connection and reground your cap. Then i would say what kind of cap do you have bc i honestly think a cap is a waste of money not being mean but your better of getting a yellow top optima battery for a lil extra more money. I think you should can it if not see if your fuse is a high enough amperage. I swear it sounds like the polarity somewhere got crossed.
