Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Check engine light blinking on and off

Recently when I went to start my car it started real rough then died. Tried to start several times after that and it seemed like it was flooded. When it finally started it was cutting in and out. light blinking on and off then it would stop for awhile.
Checked under the hood and saw some oil on my spark plug wires and in holes of spark plug. Cleaned them out and also cleaned out the air filter. My light isnt blinking on and off anymore and it seems to idle a little better. However, I've also driven a few miles since I did that. Any suggestions

    have checked the spark plugs and does give spark, have checked that petrol is coming through, which it does and has got power when started but stops with a bit of a shudder after a few seconds. filters seem okay.

People are so ******* rude. Get over yourself. And stop being an ***. If you think telling people to take their cars to the shop is helping, it's not. That's why people post these things. To get answers, not to hear some idiot tell them to take it to the shop, that's what people want to avoid.

Real car problem

how many miles on it? if over 20k replace plugs. look into replacing wires too. oem or performance wires. and youre coil packs might be going bad too. take them off and check the back side to see if you have discoloration. all together youre looking to spend about $500. but you could probably get away with just the plugs for now. and if its still under warranty you can get it all done for free by a dealership.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking

my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
