Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
After car had been driven for about 10 minutes, car started to hesitate while driving. Rough idle at stop and sluggish at acceleration. Car was driven through standing water on the road and it did spray up. I continued to drive and after about another 10 minutes, car returned to normal performance. Wanted to know if this occurred due to the water or if other factors are an issue?..
If this only happened AFTER you drove through the water, I'd say it had to do with the water. When ignition parts get wet, they short out and lose performance. Once they heat up and dry out, they will be back to normal. If you haven't had a tune-up in a while, I suggest you get one. Ignition wires are usually the first to give you problems when they get wet. Sometimes if it's really damp outside, you can have the same issue you did when you drove through the water.
