Question about 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

When it rains out or is humid the car runs rough, after it runs awhile the problem goes away. When its running rough it back fires and chugs and when you push down on the accelerator it doesn't get any more power but when you back off on the accelerator it picks up speed.

    We found out that it has a coil pack so when we check these wires where is the coil pack located because when we look we cannot see it at all, is it easy to get to and if not how do we go about getting to it. Is this something a Sunday machanic can do.

Try looking at coil or distributer wires for cracks any where dampness or moisture can get in

It has a problem that seams to be caused by moisture if it sits out in the rain and or fog for more than a day. The car will start but will be misfiring and engine will die unless you rev it up to 1,500...


Most likely cause is a crack in the distributor cap. This allows moisture to penetrate the cap and causing misfires and stalling. This would be the 1st place to check.

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.

It sounds as thou you have moisture in your distributor.Pull the distributor cap off and let the car sit and dry out for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
