Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Engine doesnt like to start on a hill when low on gas.

Hello I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Litre coupe. I have only one problem with this car and that when I have less then an eighth of a tank of gas in the car it doesnt like to be started on a hill I first noticed this when I parked on a steep hill in town and came back and started my car and it kinda sputtered as though it were out of gas but once its driving its fine again I only ever have this problem when I am almost out of gas if I have a quarter tank or half tank or full tank the car starts fine on hills does anyone know what the problem might be? I was thinking maybe its the fuel filter that needs to be replaced.

Because you have limited gas, the small amount of gas that you have in there isnt being sent thru your fuel line because ur on a slant. Thus when your level, gas is distributed evenly in the tank and fed thru your fuel system. duh.

96 chevy cavalier engine hesitates on hills when giving it the gas replaced fuel filter 2.3 l electronic fuel injection


hesitation under excell can be spark related. check your spark plugs. they may be worn, with exsessive gap.
I always recomend AC delco plugs for GM engines. stay away from Bosch plugs.
Another thing to consider is fuel quality.
Try a different brand.
I have had lots of problems with Arco fuel.
