Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have had a complete tune up with new plugs and wires. new air filter,new fuel filter, new map sensor and new oxygen sensor, but my needle on speedometer is jumping and car is stalling and sputtering, I think it needs a egr valve can i be right? Tired of putting money into this car, I am exhausted, Please help
No, Not an EGR valve. I would go with an electrical problem. As the speedo jumps, do other needle jump or move also? If so I would start at the dash. Some cars wont run or even start without the dash working. Could be as simple as a bad connection at the plug. Some times you have to go a little further by squeezing the female connectors down a bit. Then I would pull all the fuses and check to see if they are good . Pulling them takes care of any corrosion/contact issues. Next would be to check power and ground points.

try a fuel filter. its somthing real simple .look at your massair flow sensor . but i would have it hook up to a code reader or have it anulised by mec. that will pin point your problem better

hi there, i had the same problem with my 98 astro van, and took it to the shop, the computer pumped out a mass airflow sensor, they replaced it at considerable cost lol, but the van now runs good

This problem can be caused by defective spark plug wires that are cross firing due to voltage leaking to a nearby plug wire as well as a flat camshaft lobe.
