Here is a list of some things that can cause it,
Emmissions system not functioning properly,
Faulty secondary ignition system
Fuel injection system in need of adjustment
Vaccum leak at fuel injectors, around intake manifold, or vaccum hoses
Clogged fuel filter
Weak fuel pump
To test for a vaccum leak, get a can of starting fluid, with the engine running, spray around the intake manifold, the vaccum hoses, connections and fittings, where ever you spray and the engine rev's up a little, you found a leak.

Replaced battery, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, added heet water removal and lucas fuel injector. It sputters, backfires/pops when accelerating and it has no power, drives like a golf...


How many miles? I am NOT a mechanic! Sounds like possible timing belt/chain jumped a tooth. Or the timing advance mechanism is malfuctioning. (Unlikely - check distributor is tight or not shifted from normal position too far back or forward.) Assuming belt and not chain, 80 k miles or more, likely need to replace timing belt in any case, before it breaks. If it breaks, you'll be replacing valves and pistons too.

As you have replaced all the obvious things that could cause the symptoms it may be a good idea to have a cylinder compression test done , if comes back OK i'd try a fuel addative , one that covers the catalytic convertor , as there are many sensor's involved in the fuel/exhaust system as you know , this addative will clean any residue affecting there reading's , hope this helps

1997 Chevy Malibu will start and then sputter.


It sounds like your engine is not getting a proper spark because of bad plugs. Check your spark plugs. To be safe install new ones anyway. I prefer NGK plugs.

1997 2.2 Cavalier sporadic/cutting out


I had a similar problem with an earlier model Cavalier, with the problem being much more pronounced. The fuel injector nozzles on two cylinders turned out to be the culprits. Once replaced, the car ran beautifully like it always had before.
