Question about Cars & Trucks
Okay here's the 411 my wife owns a 2001 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 engine four door last few weeks we been noticing increase in gas consumption then one day we were just driving home all of a sudden the engine seem to be shaking quite badly and the check engine light was flashing and there was a strong smell of gas we rushed home and started diagnostics online searching scanner etc. here are the codes (see picture attached) First I thought maybe the spark plugs and spark plug wires I replaced the spark plugs and tested the wires and they are fine and no change next I thought maybe the coils I took an AutoZone to get tested they tested out fine could anybody please help me my wife has been laid off for over year and due to the lack of income we cannot afford a real mechanic and of course she is finally found a job working with disabled children but requires that she has a vehicle to transport them to their program schools etc "Suspicion of the coils being bad was due to the fact thatcoils two and three produce visible spark while one and four did not took both to AutoZone to betested they tested fine could have been wrong?
When you had the coils checked did you get the module checked as well? Is the car throttle body or multi port injection?
