    O one more thing you might want to check into is the recalls on that year chevy cav if in the 90s and up they had recalls on some of there parts i had to take my 94 chevy cav into the dealership on the ingnition wiring recall and under the hood harness replacement done both where recalls so check with them if there are recalls on it just check online for recalls for that chevy and then call up your local dealership and tell them that your car has recalls on those parts and then they will tell you to bring it in for replacement free of charge as well no cost to you !!!

I put a short ram intake on my corolla S 2014 now I take off bogs out real bad and my idol is really messed up why

by "ram intake" do you mean a cold air intake? Possibly a Vacuum leak. a large vac leak.. Check everything you did for misfits, loose clamps, broken hoses, hoses not installed properly, wires disconnected, if you find no problems replace your "ram air" with the stock components. If the problem goes away its your "ram intake" if the problem is still there you have one of the above listed problems. Best possibilty you did not reconnect the Mass Air sensor, or large vac leak

1996 chevy cavalier and 2001 chevy cavalier fuel pump interchageable

In the book a 96 model only fits 96-98 cars.
But the actual pump may be the same. You get an assembly including float and lines when you buy a new part.
You may be able to look at a new assembly for each year and tell if the actual pumps are the same style.

It will start but will not idol

There is a iac (intake air control) in the back of the intake. Has 2 torque screws. Pull it off and clean it and the seat in the intake. Do not use carb cleaner on the throttle body. They have a protective coating so use throttle body cleaner. If thats not the problem replace then look into the fuel system.

Hi, My 96 jeep cherokee is running rough at idol and backfires. I replaced the fuel pump, plugs ,cap, rotor, intake air contorl mod.and wires. I cand seem to find egr. valve. can you please help?

You have a vacuum line off somewhere, or the egr valve is leaking at idol, or you have manifold vacuum hooked up to the egr valve, make sure the vacuum line going to the egr valve has no vacuum at idol, only during acceleration.

I have seen this many times it most of the time was caused by a leak in the intake or air plenum ,you can test for that using a water bottle with a mist spray around the intake should change RPM.'s as it draws the water in ,telling you the area that is leaking BE CARFULL. MOVEING parts hope this is helpful. let us know how we are doing Thank You.

Location of the pcv valve on a 96 chevy cavalier

it should be in the top of the intake manifold, the air cleaner tube goes into the throttle body and there is a little line that runs from the air cleaner tube into the pcv value and is screwed into the intake manifold.
