My daughter has a 1996 cavalier 2.2l and it has a rough idle like a lug sound it runs fine and everything sounds great going down the road but just when it idles its a bit rough We changed the fuel pump in...


The fuel filter is only about 5 bucks worth of work/material. Most of the time you have to get 3/8 fuel line and clamps and a filter with male adapters and just cut out the old one. But it's still a 20 minute job. Also try some dry gas or fuel treatment. If you change it and it's still acting up I think a Vacuum leak or a weak coil is the culprit. Hope this helps.

It's probably the mass airflow sensor and/or oxygen sensors.

fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
