Question about 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
I know where you are going with this question. Cavalier's have low idle speeds and are known to stall. This is programed in the computer and there is nothing you can do about it, wrong! Two things you can do. Take it to the dealer and have them reprogram the eprom to the newest program that prevents it from stalling. This raises the idle speed a little bit. Mine was still too low so I took off the throttle body and noticed the idle adjusting screw had locktite on it. I heated it up with a propane torch and loosened the screw. I reinstalled the throttle body and hooked up my autotap program (through the aldl) and turned the screw out until I got above 600 rpm and stopped. If you get it too high, you will get, "idle too high" code. No stalling problem now and works great. Note: Dealership's cannot adjust idle screws due to regulations.
