Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Check engine light blinking and car running rough.

I have a 2000 Cavilar Z24. My car is running really rough and spitting and sputtering. I checked the oil and it smelled like there was gas in it. I took the car to a parts store to have them run a diagnostics on it. The're computer would not read the cars computer.

A flashing check engine light means you have a catalyst damaging miss-fire. you will need to get the fault codes pulled so you can see what cylinder/cylinders are causing the problem. Once you have this information a diagnostic path can be determined.

When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

I have a 1996 dodge caravan 3.0 with about 220,000miles it ran perfect on wed and ran like **** the next day.its spitting and sputtering and if you really get on it the acts like it wants to die knocking...


Sounds like you have a bad bcm as far as the lights ! The running rough and the cel flashing indicates a misfire condition ! Check your plug wires and see if a critter hasnt chewed a wire !

After driving about 3 to 5 mile when there has been alot of rain the engine starts running real rough spitting and sputtering--if you floor it it takes off as long as you keep it floored--doesn`t stall...


Engine light could be from the spitting and sputtering, sounds to me like maybe bad spark plug wires, possible an ecm issue, what kinda code is it giving you when the engine light comes on?
