Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

97 siverado 1 ton w/454 engine

Was coming home from friends house, going down a hill and my truck started back firing bad, then the engine went dead. I thought it was the fuel pump but I had 60PSI at the test port. I'm thinking timing chain and gears but it ran very well before the problem accured. Any one have the same thing happen? I havent checked the rotor for position yet, thought mabe someone else had the same problem. Any suggestions? Am I on the right track?

I would suggest that it is indeed the timing chain so go in that direction in troubleshooting it.

What is wrong with my dodge neon when back fires and no power going up hills


You have a bad coil, most likely. Check the catalytic converter also at a shop. Possibly bad spark wire(s). Last but not likely, a prob with the PCM .

3002 Pt Cruiser GT - 53, 000 miles - first start of the day - went about 1/4 mile down hill, engine light came on. Had put gas in the day before thought maybe the gas cap was lose. Tightened gas cap, went...


It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

1989 Chevy 1 ton wont start


It is likely the electronic ignition control module. When they go, they just go bad and usually when you are driving.

If it was a smaller vehicle it could also be a timing belt but your's has a heavy duty valve train so no worries there.

Bad PCM or ignition coil.
