Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
After settled, when I go to start it up, I am reversing out of the driveway, and it sputters/hesitates bad, and dies out. Doesn' die out all the time but sometimes. The only way to keep it from dieing out while driving, (in the begining) is to accelerate before sputters to death.
This problem stops after it drives though. Its more of the first couple of minutes. Like it has to get warmed up before it runs smoothly.
This only happens while im first starting up the car.and first driving off.
Thanx in advance
First step here is to have the engine control module scanned for fault codes.

Check your PCV hose, it may have a hole in it or may be completly sucked in. Or you could need new coils and spark plugs. Or your EGR valve is bad.

Electrical problem can be the most frustrating and difficult to diagnois especially when you are not phsyically at the vehicle. I will attempt to point you in the direction you should be looking. Right off the bat it sounds as if you are running low on power when the demand is high. First thing to suspect is the battery. For some reason it is low on electrical power.
Next thing is to figure out why. The first thing I would check are the cable ends. Are they corroded? It may not look as if the are, but they still could be. Clean them thouroghly.At times, when they are corroded that may be enough to stop the flow of current from the alternator to keep the battery charged up. If they look good, you may want to put your battery on a charger. Pay attention to the meter and see how much the battery is down. If it taking a lot of charge it could be it needs replacing, but charge it up and see how it works. Remember when charging a battery, first remove the caps and see if the cells are low on water. If they are your battery is probably the culprit. When a battery starts using water it's usually because some of the plates have over heated and warped, which causes them to touch each other and short out. BTW, when charging a battery make sure you remove the caps during charging. So leave them off after you check the water, AND if you need water use only distilled water. You can buy it just about anywhere, grocery store, Walmart, KMart, etc.
Check your altanator belt and make sure it is tight and not streached out. That could also be why the battery is not keeping up with the demand.
If that dosen't cure it, next take your battery in and have it tested and see if it is up to snuff. I hope this helps you and please let me know through your rating of this advice.
