Usually I see this in cars with a cold air intake. sometimes cars with stock or aftermarket cold air intakes may cause this.

If it is a 2.2 yes. Start with pulling of the timing cover and checking the timing chain. It doesn't take long to get off.

97 cavalier won't start when wet


That is your distributor cap. It either has a crack or isn't tight. The rubber seal could also be shot. Condensation from outside moisture builds up inside your cap while it sits. It wastes the spark on the water droplets instead of your contact points. Next time it happens, take the cap off and wipe it dry on the inside. Don't take the wires off. If your going to change it, label each wire starting at 1 mark. Hope this helps.
