Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
My daughter has a 1996 Chevy Cavalier that has been acting up. It will stall at random times,, she can be driving on the highway, or even just coming to a stop sometimes and it will stall on her. When she tries to start it back up it usually will not start back up right away. Before she had to let it set for up to 10 minutes, but lately it has been getting worse, and she has to let it sit up to an hour before it will start again. There are no lights on the dash sending any codes, so I am stumped. She is living away from home going to school so every time it stalls, she calls me, but by the time I get there it usually will start right back up. About 6 months ago, she was exiting the highway by our home and it stalled on the exit ramp. I was on my way there and she called to say it started again. I turned around and a minute later she called back to say it stalled again. We drove to where she was sitting and tried to start it, and sure enough, it started right up. We started on home again, she made to turn signal at the top of the ramp, and I didn't. She got to the next corner and it stalled again. By the time we got to her the darn thing started again. My father in law got in and drove it home from there, and it did not act up again that day.So none the less it keeps fooling me so I can not really check anything. I traded cars with her for a week, and nothing happened in that time, then this last weekend, it stalled out on her 2 different times. Any direction would be great with this issue. We replaced the fuel pump less then one year ago, so I would assume that it is not the problem, but I am not sure.
Was fuel filter replaced? it also could be a bad coil pack
