    Sometimes when I drive my car it drives fine, but once in awhile it looses complete power. I hold the gas peddle down completely because I drive a manual and if I don't I can't seem to get it to start again. But this problem only happens once in awhile with my 97 chevy cavalier 2dr coupe.

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

1st thing to do is have the system tested for the code that caused the check engine light to come, you may also have a fuel pump starting to fail or many other things, the check engine light may be the key. How many wiles on the car?
