Look for a dislodged or cracked vacuum tube. What you have done should not be able to cause what is happening. Exhaust is hot, the cylinder burn temps are around 2000 to 2500 degrees F.

I bet you have inadvertantly created an intake leak.

It sounds like you have a fuel issue , make sure you have good fuel pressure and if so try a new filter

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier. what do i need to know/do to change the oil myself


you will need 5qts of 5w-30 oil and an oil filter. Go to an auto parts store and tell them the make model and year of your car and they will give you the right oil filter. Make sure to drain all the oil out then remove the oil filter. When putting the new oil filter in make sure to take some oil and put it on the sear of the oil filter. Screw the oil filter on hand tight and put the drain plug back in. Add oil to your motor, start with a little less then the owners manual says and start the car for a minute then turn off and check the oil level. Add and repeat till the oil level is correct.
