Hi Kurt, I'm glad to help!

To answer your question Kurt, not just the Cavalier BUT, NO vehicle will run with a BAD Alternator because your battery is not being charged up and once all the power is gone out of the battery there's nothing left to run the relay and other stuff that keeps the engine running so it dies. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kurt.

SOURCE: 2000 nissan sentra runs well on warm up, stalls in

i actually had this problem on my 97 sentra, its the air idle control valve. when your car is idling with your foot off the pedal, the throttle plate is closed, so this little valve opens up to allow air to detour around the closed throttle plate so your car can continue to run, when you give it gas the plate opens so your engine can increase revs.

after awhile the idle air control valve gets dirty with carbon buildup and eventually makes the valve stick so no air can pass through it which is why the car will stall when it attempts to idle. all it needs is a good clean. its very easy to do, just get some brake cleaner and a toothpick or q-tip or some other small brush.

locating this valve is a bit tricky, yours is a 2000 model mines a 97 so it wont be in the same location as mine, but what your looking for is a little cylinder type thing somewhere near the intake with an electrical connector at the back of it, take the connector off, mine had 2 phillips head screws holding the valve in place, once removed the valve slides out, and you can proceed to clean it. make sure you get all the black soot out of it and play around with it until it opens smooth, reinstall and it should run fine. to find out the exact location of your idle air control valve id google it or try a nissan forum, but itll be close to your intake manifold near the firewall. best of luck, once found its a very easy fix.

Check that your battery is charging. If your car stalls after one stop then likely you don't have charge in your electrical system. Could be a bad alternator, battery, faulty wiring, etc.

yes it could.If the alternator is bad your battery light should come on while running.when u replaced the battery it should have ran good for a minute till the alternator started draining draining your battery.Then the battery light would come on.I would replace it or have it checked.You can check it by starting it up and keep any elelectric off radio,lights,ect.then disconnect the battery if the car stalls its the alternator.the car would stay running with good alternator

2000 cavalier starts and then immediately stalls. Will not stay running. Put gas directly in throittle body and it runs fine until gas is gone.


i have found that the ignition switch often causes this problem, only providing power to the ignition system while in the crank position.
