Question about 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

1995 Cavaier Has no hp

The car has been starting hard for about 6 months. I have tryed many thing including Complete tune up. Last night while driving home the car just lost power. If you keep your foot to the florr it will run but at an idle speed. Tryed changing the fuel filter and not it will start but only if the throttle is pushed all the way to the floor. I am wonder what other problem could cause this? Also I notice that after trying to start it if I open the oil cap, smoke comes out. Is that normal or are there bigger problems?

Has rough idle after it warms up and 30 min. or so it has no power

When was it last tuned up? If more than 6 months ago, try a new cap and rotor, and confirm distritor rotation and firing order. Then fire it up at night in the dark and look for arcing.

That is the likely scenario for ignition.

Check fuel pressure and MAP sensor for fuel related. Make sure the atmospheric vent is not plugged with mud from a mason bee.

My caprice starts and runs for a while then after about 45 mins of driving it hesitates to pull off and idles up and down. then if i cut it off, i wont start unless it sits for about a hour or so... PLEASE...

Sounds like you need to check your converter. May be trying to stop up. Eventualy you may smell fumes. Take to a muffler shop and have it checked. It's hard to say this is what it is but it's where i would start. You may have got'en some bad gas somewhere. Good Luck to you.

While driving hard sometimes i press full throttle and no power cls 55 mercedes

TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) is first thing I would look at, they're notorious for this symptom. When was last healthy tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including FUEL filter? I'd do tune up then see if problem exists.

Starting problem

Hard to say depending on when the last complete tune up has been done. It coud be related to the ongoing maintenance or to a specific problem.
Generally speaking, in preparation to the winter, with a car of this generation I would replace spark plugs, wiring, distributor cap and rotor, air filter, gas filter, oil. I would check and clean battery terminal connections and have the battery check (check under load). Check is the engine temp is ok and replace thermostat if needed. But once again it's by prevention and you will get your money back saving trouble and saving on gas. This is the first thing I'll recommend anyway.
Hope it will help
