Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 1997 chevy cavalier 2.4 twin cam that i have put every sensor, valve, timing chain,... on this thing just short of replacing the engine. i have taken it to the chevy dealer and numerous auto repair shops and all don't know what is wrong with my car. Problem: you can start the car and it will idle. when you step on the gas pedal real slow it will rev up pretty much normally. if you throttle it down the engine falls on its face (coughs, sputters, backfires) and will die if you don't back off and bring it up slow. as long as you bring it up slow (on the highway)you can go as fast as you want. any ideals?
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.
