Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Intermittent stalling I have a 2001 cavalier with a 2.4L. It will stall intermittenly but only when it is cold out side, like -30 to -40. I found ice building up in the air induction system, and the throttle body is also icing up. Has anyone else experienced this? The hose from the crank case pressure relief box located behind the intake manifold is milky looking. Any suggestions????

The milky substance is a normal moisture issue. Partner ...if it's 40 below outside and it's not in a garage or has no block heater... your gonna have issues. Warm motor + extreme cold = moisture buildup and once cold...heavy ice build up. Theres a lot of plastic on that motor. Take that into consideration. Don't take it the wrong way... I'm not trying to be rude by any means at all. But when it was 40 below by me...none of my vehicles even started at all. Mine have more metal on them too. Condensation can and will freeze.

Idle problem (stalling) when car reaches full hot


There's a possibility that the ECT (engine coolant temp.) sensor isn't working the way it's supposed to. The engine may be at operating temp but the sensor may be telling the engine computer it's cold still and it'll act like an automatic choke on a carb. engine.

Your temp sensor is the fault. Replace it and problem solved.

The sensor is telling the ECU (brain) that the engine is cold even when it is hot.

1989 Z24, 2.8v6 intermittent stalling while driving. Sometimes will restart, but not go far, sometimes will not restart at all. Usually starts fine the next day, may run OK several days before acting up...


the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad

NTERMITTENT STALLING AND STARTING.


A very common for these problems is a leaking fuel pressure regulator. This leaks gas and causes extended crank times, stalling, and check engine light.
