Question about 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Problem with 03 chevy cavalier. It acts like it wants to start but just sputters. it has been slow to start sometimes for about a month now but usually ends up turning over. I just had a new fuel pump put in 8 months ago so I dont think it's that. Also before when it was slow to start the clock would reset to 12:00 and the cd player would go from cd to radio?

Sounds like a classic loose connection at the battery, take it apart and pour hot water over the connections and that should do it

Possibly bad tpos sensor

Bad idle air control valve

Bad maf sensor

Check the computer codes first before spending any more money on it

Also do a compression check

And check your valve timing and ignition timing just in case.

1997 Chevy Cavalier is backfiring and sputtering sometimes on take off or acceleration. Any ideas what the problem is? New fuel regulator, all new injectors, done alot to this car.


Here is a list of some things that can cause it,
Emmissions system not functioning properly,
Faulty secondary ignition system
Fuel injection system in need of adjustment
Vaccum leak at fuel injectors, around intake manifold, or vaccum hoses
Clogged fuel filter
Weak fuel pump
To test for a vaccum leak, get a can of starting fluid, with the engine running, spray around the intake manifold, the vaccum hoses, connections and fittings, where ever you spray and the engine rev's up a little, you found a leak.

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.


Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?

2003 Cavalier's are known for bad wiring harnesses. Get a good technician to find and replace the bad harness and your problems will go away. Sometimes, it may be more than one harness.

I had a similar problem with an earlier model Cavalier, with the problem being much more pronounced. The fuel injector nozzles on two cylinders turned out to be the culprits. Once replaced, the car ran beautifully like it always had before.
