Chevy Cavalier Fuel System Problems
I bought this car a few months ago, since then it has started idling rough at times. Occasionally when I come to a stop it almost feels as if the car is lungeing (sorry if I mispelled it) while I've got the brake on. Other times it will just idle really rough and sometimes die on me when I come to a stop. The engine light comes on and goes off ever few days and when I had it checked it's showing a misfire. I've had the plugs changed, had injector cleaner run through it, and am considering having new fuel injector put on. Any suggestions?? I hate spending a couple hundred dollars on an injector and not knowing if this is the problem. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks
Anyone needing to buy a cavalier for a good price :lemon:
A quality set of wires isn't too expensive, compared to what you've spent already. Don't pay a dealer or shop to do this at the rate of $80-$100/hr. Get a friend to help you with it for free. Don't forget to add a small dab of dielectric grease in the boots to make the wires easier to remove the next time.
Also, I'd recommend putting a can of gas additive into the tank to remove any water that might be causing problems.
I have a 2005 Chevy Cavalier, Now a month ago it started making a mild clicking noise somewhere around the spark plug section of the engine... Now we, knew that it might have been linked to getting the oil change, but life came at us fast and didn't get a chance to before this happened. so last tuesday after putting gas in and going to the store right across the street. My fiance' had mentioned how when he had to pretty much floor it get any pressure and momentum... so we stopped at the nearest auto parts store and after talking with a son of mechanic and their people... it devised we can try to take a look at spark plugs. and of course they definitely needed to be changed. changed all of them (the clicking noise still persisted but not louder or anything) So he decided to drive it around the store to make sure it was fixed... The car just stopped and now anytime we attempt to start the car it will start to crank but won't turn over... we decided to try to do the oil to eliminate some of the issues but the bolt is so rounded down we would need special equipment to get it off... now we're stuck with an immobile car and a vague clue to what the problem may be... I have been hearing fuel jector or fuel pump issue. Is any suggestions to help troubleshoot so we can fix this issue? Thanks
