Why does my 1998 sebring idle fine but sputter badly under load.


Does it use spark plug wires or individual ignition coils for the each plug?. My 98 intrepid uses coils and occasionally I have to change them out cause it would start to miss when normal temperature was achieved. If it uses wires, try replacing them, along with the spark plugs.

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Z24 Cavalier, It has 241,000 miles on it. It runs great and I haven't had to fix much on it. Just lately it started missing when you accelerate to speed up fast or go up a hill in...


Normally the first thing that would cause a miss like that (under load in a tall gear) is a secondary ignition miss, usually caused by a plug wire, or possibly a distributor cap or rotor-have these been replaced in the last 30,000 miles? If not, I would do them first. If it still happens, you might then change the fuel filter, clean the throttle body and Mass Air Flow sensor, and replace the air filter-that's a complete tuneup, it should last you another 50,000 plus miles as long as you change the oil religiously and don't overheat it.

1992 pontiac grand am no acceleration, a rough idle (engine miss)


Does it have the 2.3l Quad 4 engine? If so replace the plastic piece that the coils go into, they go bad and leak spark to the cam towers and then you get a nice one or multiple cylinder misfire.

Engine misses when accelerating


Did you put plug wires on it? Also these are good for having injector problems.

1989 Cavalier Z24 3.1 rough idle and hesitation


it sounds to me that the sensor your talking about is the camshaft positioning sensor. It regulates how much fuel you get to your engine, so that is also why you have the fuel smell as well.
