Hey Jake , how many miles on your cavalier ? You can't check the timing , no distributor an any splits in air intake hose won't affect this cavalier , no mass air flow sensor has MAP sensor ! Sounds like you mite have a big vacuum leak ! What do you mean when you say you have to keep pushing on gas pedal to keep on ? It won't idle if you don't hold gas pedal down ?

    Does your cavalier have 2.2 or 2.4 L engine , if is your car won't idle , maybe the IAC system is plugged with carbon ! Did this just start to happen all at once or have you had idle problems fro awhile ?

Check there are not any splits in your air intake hoses and check the ignition timing is good.

To add, recheck if fuel pressure is actually there (rechecking the work)

stick an obd2 scanner and see if there are any trouble codes as well as checking for vacuum leaks as vtec stated

SOURCE: 98 Cavalier 2.4L engine stumbles at 2000-2500 rpm

Could be a short in the wiring for the O2 sensor.   I currently have the same issue only my car finally threw a code after two days of it acting up.  Code 106.  Changed the MAP sensor and it now throws 108, MAP sensor high voltage circuit.  Ah the joys of cold weather and broke down vehicles.  But I know that you wont always get a code with a short.  Let me know if you fixed the problem.

SOURCE: wont start has fuel and has spark

RC ralston
Your problem is a leak in the cpi pletium most likely the pressure line has a leak
had same problem with mine $45.00 PRESSURE LINE KIT AND $15.00 GASKET FOR PLETIUM and 2 hours labor problem sovled.
You can remove vortec cover and remove air regulator to look inside pletium. I had gas vapor on driver side . that is where fuel lines are. fuel regulator is on passenger side. turn key on and look in hole and see where fuel is spraying. taking pletium off you can again turn key on and make sure where fuel is coming from.

SOURCE: my engine shuts off while im driving

Check ecm for number 1228253. If it has this one in it you will have a cutting off problem. Gm replaced these with #16198264 The cam sensor magnet on the cam gear will deteriorate and give problems. This will require removal of the timing cover.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy venture doesnt start

Not the IAC, or MAF, or 02

Does the Van Crank over?
Have you checked the IGN Relays? 1,2,and 3?
How did the Battery test out?
Anything below 11.9v battery is dead.
So I suggest that you do not throw any more parts and check the battery again.

My 1997 chevy s10 2 wheel drive will crank but won't rev up.


motors do not rev up because they are not getting correct air/fuel for the throttle opening. So check that the accelerator position sensor is working and if you have a cable operated throttle to the body check that it is not broken. IT may be your throttle motor is not working

Stalls out when the gas pedal is hit


Pull a spark plug. Is it black? Stalling on acceleration. Possible cause: vacuum leak; can be detected by spraying water on suspected area. Will produce sound as if drinking from a near empty cup with a straw.
Possibly throttle position sensor. When they go bad, they have a tendency to tell the ecm to release more fuel than needed, flooding the engine, and killing your gas mileage.

Sounds like fuel starvation. 1) change fuel filter. 2) change fuel pump. GM pumps don't hold up to water in the tank (methanol fuel) very well. Its a 2003 so its probably time. Never replace as many parts as you have, without first performing an OBDII scan of the stored fault history, to avoid buying parts you don't need

I have a 94 chevy cavalier z24 3.1L that idles weird the rpms jump from below 1 to 2 and sometimes to have to hold the gas pedal to floor to start it and sometimes if you dont keep gas pedal on it sta


Its a fuel injection issue likely the pressure regulator check the throttle position sensor and all vacuum related issues to fuel and air intake systems .Then again if the throttle plate is stuck it got way to hot and the engine is likely damaged .The throttle problem could be a frayed cable that sticks in the jacket .
You need to look at all of this stuff and think about it before you do any repairs.
I can't see the vehicle check the cable and the throttle plate movement first it should move freely no binding or snagging if the plate is sticking not closing Ect it would cause this condition .
Lack of fuel pressure would do the same thing .

My 2001 chevy cavalier wont start an run unless i push gas pedal i have to keep pressure on gas pedal to keep it running


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting. I want you to let me know if the solution(s) suggested were of any value. Constructive criticism is welcomed.

Hi,

I'm Ben and hopefully, I can provide some meaningful assistance'

Your problem suggests a problem with fuel delivery and is usually associated with a clogged fuel filter. That's a $10 fix.

However, I suggest that you have your local AutoZone run a free diagnostic scan and a check of the fuel pressure. This will determine whether or not there is something more serious, e.g., fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, mass air flow sensor, throttle position sensor, etc.

Don't hesitate because the problem will only get worse.

Please keep up to date since this is a problem that is occurring ever more frequently.

1996 chevy cobolt 6 cyl. "engine power reduced" idols extremly rough shaking entire engine. When pushing on gas pedal car will sputter acting like it wants to die.


It sounds like you have a fuel issue or spark issue. Pull your spark plugs and see how they look. If they look fine then test the fuel pump. You could try to run to fuel system cleaner through the fuel system and see if there is an improvement in idle. Could be any of the following problems,

coil
spark plugs
spark plug wires
fuel filter
fuel pump
injectors
air filter

Check the easy stuff like plugs, wires fuel pump and air filter first.

Need a 1996 1500 chevy 305 EXPERT!!!! ONLY!!!


Take an analog ohmmeter, remove connector from TP sensor, and touch probes on terminals of sensor, try combination of 2 until you see reading increase as gas pedal pushed & decrease as pedal released by someone, while engine off, and key off.. Have them slowly, & gradually push pedal, as you watch meter. Reading should increase slowly & gradually as well. If you see it climbing, then quickly drop off, then jump back up, it's faulty. Try to concentrate more on the position of gas pedal where you experience the engine cutting out. Costs nothing to try it.
