Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

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 5th gear. It Idles fine. And runs fine other wise. Any suggestions? Thanks.

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.

To much gas going thru the exhaust. probably the #2 miss fire. Before you change plugs, make sure you have fire to cylinder #2. You could have a bad coil or ignition module. Also check the condition of the plug wire. You can change these if you like , but it may not be necessary.

My 88 cavalier z24 starts to run rough as it warms up it is throwing ecm code 43. what is esc and how do you fix low voltage to it


Electronic Spark Control runs a self check and it failed the check. You need to replace the HEI module inside the distributor, check all the wires and connectors for rust and clean as needed.

99' Cavalier Z24 Manual Trans. - Hard to put into gear.


A stretched clutch cable doesn't feel any different than a new one. Check the clutch play (disengage tolerance), and adjust it if necessary. This is the most popular reason for hard to select gears. Worn out clutches will slip, and this is not your case. A worn out or defective synchronizer ring/ sleeve will ONLY affect 2 gears, and all the others will work fine, if this is your case, then the gearbox has to be taken apart, and rebuilt.

What is the correct front and rear tire pressures for a 1999 Z24 Cavalier convertible. Our driver side door was replaced and the sticker is missing.


I think there is another other sticker in the back cover of the spire tire cover in the trunk, but you can go by the the tire pressure label on the tire it self and run the rear tire pressure 4 pounds less then the front. The front always have more since that is where the engine is and the rear has no weight so a softer tire will keep the rear end from hopping around bumpy corners. I believe the proper tire pressure on the Z24 if it's the correct tire is 42 lbs cold front and 38 lbs cold rear if you like the performance feel and if you like the softer feel, then drop it by 6 lbs both front and rear. Good luck and hope this helps.
