Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

3 Answers

Car stales after about 20 mins

I have a 1994 cavalier. 2.2 engine. It runs fine for short distances but anything longer than 20 mins and it will stale out once I use my breaks. I can drive out to my dad's which is about an hour away, 45 mins of that is highway and it will run fine on the highway but I have to left it sit on the off ramp for about 15mins or so be for it will runs again. Once it stales I can start the car and it will run while its in park but stale once I try to put it in drive. Once I let it sit for a few it'll run fine again. It does not seem to matter too much if it's hot outside or cold. I've changed the fuel filter & the alternator is new. Someone said that it may be the fuel pump & i did buy the car used. But I was wondering if there may be something else that could cause it before spent the money for a new fuel pump and that still not be the issue. Thanks and sorry it's so long but I figured more details might help.

    I have the same problem...the people I bought the car from always put fuel injector cleaner in before they fill up the tank. However, that has nothing to do with why it is stalling. It is the transmission. I just had a diagnostic done.

Make sure your lock-up converter isnt sticking in the locked position, that will cause it to stall when you come to a stop. If you put the car in neutral just before you stop and the car does not stall, you found the problem. If it still stalls, the idle air control valve could be the problem also. A fuel pump going bad will cause quite a few performance problems while your driving. I'm not saying this isnt it, but chances are its not.    Brian

The fuel pump is the only thing it could be, its building up heat after running a while and is shutting off...

I should be a spokesperson for the "Haynes manual", I have come to find out that's the best book for any vehicle owner. It actually tells you exactly what the codes are for. You can get one st any auto store like advanced auto,auto zone store. It goes by the year and model of your vehicle and it like my car bible, it tells you so much about trouble shooting,trouble codes and how to replace and tear down everything.

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!
