    Have you checked the plug wires to make sure they are in order? That would be the first thing.

    the car doesn't have wires... the ignition pack goes strait to these little boots, to the plugs. I have been battling this issue myself mostly because i believe it is related to the HC fail for my emissions. When I took it to the dealership they told me it was a vacuum issue. I have also noticed (with my car any way) that the rpm pulsing doesn't occur when i am coasting... so i am tracking down places in the air intake that would be effected when the car is in motion.

Autozone and similar stores will check the codes in the computer for free usually. That is the best place to start. Other possibilities are Engine Coolant Temperature sensor (saying the engine is cold when it's not) or excessive fuel pressure (bad regulator or blocked return line)

1989 Cavalier Z24 3.1 rough idle and hesitation


it sounds to me that the sensor your talking about is the camshaft positioning sensor. It regulates how much fuel you get to your engine, so that is also why you have the fuel smell as well.

can be a mass air flow, idle air flow ,or even a hole in the tube between the airbox and the throttlebody........any air leak will cause this to happen.make sure you have no vaccuume lines off either

93 cavalier vibrating


your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?

in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother

generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.
