It sounds like you have a valve that may have dropped and is hitting the piston. It may be best if you remove the head and see what is going on. You may see the problem before you even get the head off.

You could also do a compression test to see if you have low compression on one or more cylinders.

Please post your progress

Thanks,

Tim

Wont stay running.


There is no thinking & throwing parts at any vehicle

The only fix is knowledge & the ability to do some testing

Lets go with a failed fuel pump & at least check pressure
at the motor on a gauge or see if that data is on a scan tool

Explain what test told you a cylinder wasn't firing !

Is a 97 2.4L GM motor capable of oval track racing performance. I've heard the oiling system and water pump can't handle it. Also been told that they work fine? What is what?



yes the 2.4 dual cam works well and fits great in most eco stock racing rules. I run one on a 3/8 mile high banked dirt track. The engines are light and so are the cavaliers. The waterpumps are not the easiest but i did not find it near as hard as everyone online cried about to change. Im not sure yet on the oil pump having a fualt to the bottom end issues, i lean more on the counter balance shafts airiating the oil at high rpms.

Hello I race a 1996 cavalier on a dirt track and I have been having some issues that don't seem to bad.the car will run fine for 4 laps depending on how much I get on it then it will just loose power I...


What kind of air box do you have? After racing in dirt for a few laps, is the air filter getting clogged up? I would say that or possibly intaking in hot engine air (cool air atomizes the fuel better). I'd start there... then move on to fuel issues.

well sounds like its still full of air youll have to gravity bleed it. if you can leave your car on a steep hill overnight with the rear end up then bleed it the do the same make your front end sit high up overnight then bleed it. air bubbles always try to make their way to the highest point

Ran the engine way too hard


Most of the time when this happends it has to do with valve train like broken valve spring, or bent valve , or even a bent push rod or colapes lifter, or rocker arm. At any rate i think your problem is in the valve train.

Car spudders when i put in gear


This is water in your fuel lines. when it was very cold, the water in the lines froze. when it melts, it runs to the injector system and causes these types of things to happen during acceleration. i would pick up some techtron. ths is good stuff. it will remove the water and, clean out the fuel system.
