Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
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.
Might be the coil

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...
