Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

My 97 cavalier cuts off when it goes in reverse. I replaced the idle air control sensor which the diagnostic told me to do and it still cuts off. I still have to replace the oxygen sensor but is that really making it cut off another mechanic told me that I needed a motor mount because that was making it cut off, no one is telling me the same thing and I am very confused please help me

My 97 Thunderbird is rough idling. I cleaned the bank 1 02 sensor and it still has a rough idle. I can floor it and the idle goes away.


You don't clean O2 sensors , if bad you replace them . An only if there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code or you check out O2 sensor performance with testing , using scan tool , lab scope or multimeter . A rough idle is usaully caused by a vacuum leak , a engine misfire , IAC - idle air control air passages clogged . There are videos on youtube on how to test to find rough running problems .

Engines cuts off completely when DRIVE or REVERSE is engaged. Engine idles in P or N


Does engine stumble and idle too low and die? This can be tune up issues, dirty idle air motor, dirty or sticking EGR, bad coolant temp sensor, clogged cat converter or muffler, bad O2 sensor, weak coil of bad ignition module, and more! You need diagnostic tests and readings.

97 malibu with a 3100 engine - it dies if you let off the gas - so it won't idle - but runs fine as long as you are giving it gas


idle air control motor is most likely not working . sometimes you can clean them out with intake cleaner spray or you may need to replace it . also look for vacuum leaks . another possible problem is a egr valve stuck open .i would think the engine light would have come on if that was the case for the egr valve

Renault Megane 2 2005 1.6 16v keeps cutting out when i accelerate, the car will not idle correctly i have been told that its either the cranksensor or the camsensor or the idle air control valve...i...


The idle control for poor idle. The sensors are for spark timing control by the computer-cutting out at acceleration doesn't sound like those sensors are at fault-but if a mechanic told you that, I won't argue. I would have the fuel pressure tested, though, before replacing any other parts.

97 malibu wont idle/replaced sparkplugs 2-idle ssensors had coil pack checked out,ok/still wont idle whats up please?


The throttle position sensor,and the idle air control valve would be my guess at this point.Ohm out the throttle position sensor,to see if it has a dead spot,if so,replace it,if not,replace the idle air control.
