Seems to be like you might have a transmission problem possible with the lock up solenoid system,
try to pull codes and see if you get any codes from the car with a scan tool,
some transmission codes will not turn the light on.

1989 chevy cavalier z24 strats but stalls rapidly


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

1989 Z24, 2.8v6 intermittent stalling while driving. Sometimes will restart, but not go far, sometimes will not restart at all. Usually starts fine the next day, may run OK several days before acting up...


the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad

Coming home and engine stalled at stoplight. started back up drove home, it wanted to stall at every stoplight. When it almost stalls and you accelerate it sputters. it has 65k miles.


It sounds like the vacuum line has a hole if you stop at the light and you have to hold the gas down a little to keep it going that is one problem it could be.
