Question about 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
2003 cavalier acts like it wants to kill but it don't. could it be bad gas?
If the car doesnt do it all the time and the engine light doesnt come on, then my best guess is bad gas, it has water in it. some gas stations put water in them for example like Casey's. I had the same problem with my 2002 lancer oz and sometime as i putted gas in it and the next day when i stopped it shakes lil and sounds like it gonna die but it didnt do it all the time but what I did was buy HEET and poured it in the tank and left it over night and it worked just fine the next day. but if full tank now wait til half tank and put good gas in and then it works good. or half tank could wait til 1/4th tank or just go ahead and put it in and put new gas in it. I would buy the most expensive HEET as they are like 2.11 total with tax depending where your from. hope it helps you out. if not, then go and do what the others say or just take it in. my best guess is bad gas tho.

Hello and yes this can be bad gas. This also can be something that can be fixed with a simple fuel or air filter change as well. I would do a basic tune up of spark plugs and wires which may fouled out it sounds like, oil and filter, air filter, and fuel filter. I would also change the distributor cap and rotary button. These few tune up items may help your rough running automobile. If you have any other questions email me and I hope you resolve this issue.
