My 1991 cavalier will run for 20-40 minutes and after running so long it will stall. when you try to turn the car back on it will run until you switch from park to drive, reverse or neutral. What might be the problem? Thanks!

There's a neutral safety backup combined switch but that's only for the starter.

I think that there's something about the engine that is wrong. Do you have any codes stored in the computer?

I have a 91 chevy cavalier it runs until it gets warm then starts to shake and sputter then it stalls wont start again for couple hrs what it wrong with it

This sounds like a bad control module, this is an ignition control module and it sounds like when it heats up it goes bad until it cools down, if you remove it ,there are many auto part stores that will test it for you, but make sure its tested a few times so it heats up good,

My 1991 Cavalier doesnt have charge so i charged the battery and started it and ran it for about 15 minutes than shut it off and tryed to turn it back on but didnt turn on. Whats the problem?

Check alternator. Voltage at battery should be at least 14 volts with engine running. If you don't have a voltmeter, take it off and parts store will test it free before selling you a new one. Please let us know if you have more questions.

Car will start but not stay running. What would be the problem? It's a 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier. V6 engine and is a stick shift.

It could be many different things causing this condition.The main and most common with this engine is the throttle plate gets a carbon build up on the edges and the back of the plate,you will need to try cleaning the plate to eliminate this as a cause for the stalling.Go toparts store and get throttle body cleaner pull off the air inlet and using a old toothbrush clean the throttle plate.

91 chevy cavalier for the first 5 minutes runs rough and stalls. after 5 minutes it runs with no problem. no service lights.

remove the spark plus and check the deposit color, light color on one or two indicates a head gasket leak,

94 cavalier cranks, ignites, then stalls

Most scanners will only give you a code for 1995 and up. But it seems that it could be a Crankshaft Position Sensor.Try disconnecting the negative battery cable and let it sit for a few minutes. then reconnecting it back. if not you can go to Autozone and they will scan your car with a very expensive scanner and give you a code. they usually do it for free. I think it's either the CPS or some other densor such as the MAP, MAF . You can only know if the engine is scanned.
