1993 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine cuts off when cold or hot

I sometime start my car & drive it for a min. It cut off like it's out of gas. Then it starts up again & runs good for the rest of the trip. Then I start it again & drives it for 3 min . Cuts off again, This time I have to wait 15 min and it will start and run ok. What seems to be the problem?

Someone will need to check it over when it fails to start. You need to know if it is not getting fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.

Your coolant system aint heating up like it should. Its your thermostat. You need to change it. its broke. There are four parts to your thermostat. You need to make sure that you get all four parts out. A thermostat costs about five bucks. Its an engine temp. regulator. If its broke your engine wont warm up at all. If it seizes shut, your engine will overheat. Your thermostat is broke. I Have the exact same car that I have been repairing for the last three months.

SOURCE: Engine cuts and takes long to restart

If it is a diesel it might be the same issue as I also had with mine. What VW does not do well is tell you in their TDI diesels you need to use a 505.01 approved oil otherwise your camshaft lobes will be rounded off to circles and not tear drop shape like they normally are. Most lube places don't have the correct oil that is approved by VW and it leaded to the premature engine wear. I have 88K on mine and they said the engine if blown and sounds like the turbo is going out also. You might get a diag. at a VW shop to see if that is it! Hope you find the problem!

SOURCE: Engine cuts out and wont restart for maybe 20/30 minutes

honestly, I've not seen an alfa romeo here in the philippines but i think you problem is partly electrical and the electronic side of the car. something on your car is heating up so much that it cuts the power to the ignition once it has. it is a possibility that a damaged ignition coil or a faulty computer box(if your car has one) or the control system that regulates the spark distribution system or the injectors(if your car is fuel injected type).

My truck is a 95 chevy silverado 1500 it cuts off in 1st gear


Does it seem like when the engine is cold it runs ok, then when it reaches operating temp. it starts acting up? (poor acceleration, stalling) When I had that problem w/ my 93 K1500, it ended up being my oxygen sensor. (causing too rich of a mixture in the throttle body)
Hope this helps, Good luck

Instead of listen to guesses , ( i will told it could be a fuel pump )
I was told it could be a fuel pump

Testing before replacing parts is the normal way to diagnose these type problem's Fuel pump pressure an flow testing , voltage drop test the electrical circuit . Plus viewing scan data with a scan tool !!!!

By the time you get done replacing parts ( an it still won't start ) It would have cost less at a qualified repair shop.

1993 Mercedes 200e starts, but when cold starting, its not ready to drive for 2 mins


The fuel pump relay is very common on that model and can cause those symptoms, I would start there first

Engine turns over but will not start only when engine is warm


my car has the same exact problem!! i have 2 pop the clutch 2 get it started when it is hot. Mine starts great when its cold or hasn't ran 4 awhile but when we are driving around for more than about 20 min in it when we stop it doesn't start at all. it wont even turn over. so i have 2 have my husband push it while i pop the clutch & then it starts & runs fine till the next time we turn it off. its not a battery problem as we'v replaced the battery, & the starter & the alternater are fine as we'v had them tested. hopefully someone that knows & has fixed this problem can answer this mystery problem!! hopefully some1 can :D

You are going to need a crank sensor when it get warmed up it looses its ability to send a signal to the ECM, (resistance is higher when hot and lower when cold) so when it cools off the signal is strong until it get hot then goescansmo_84.gif

what do you mean by "dash lights"? how do you KNOW the pump isnt working? how do you KNOW its good? at the ignition switch the ORANGE and PINK should have power in the RUN position the BROWN and TAN/WHITE should also be HOT in the run position. There should be a red wire near the fuel pump relay, make sure its HOT when cranking. IF its HOT and the fuel pump doenst run, the pump is bad. You can also put 12V on that red wire and power the pump.

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating


Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?

1997 2.2 Cavalier sporadic/cutting out


I had a similar problem with an earlier model Cavalier, with the problem being much more pronounced. The fuel injector nozzles on two cylinders turned out to be the culprits. Once replaced, the car ran beautifully like it always had before.
