I just bought a 96 chevy cavalier with 218000 miles on it all the indicator lights on the instrument panel stay on. It has a hard time starting and when running is misfiring and smells like gas bad


Check for bad spark plug cables and check all the plugs. Take out spark plug cable one by one and crank engine to check if there is spark or not. Before you head over replacing expensive items in this car get a compression check by mechanic for each cylinder. For a car this old and so much miles on it, most probably it needs an engine rebuild.

No power, jerking bad 1998 cavalier


Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.
