#144 of 208 Re: car stalls with 1/4 tank of fuel [show_me_navajo]
Dec 05, 2009 (4:40 pm)
my 1994 chevy cavalier stalls after driving around for a bit when i stop at red lights or stop signs or slow down.
i'm sure that's what it is with my car too show_me_navajo. i took my car to a chevrolet dealership and they said it was an easy fix and they said they just had to unplug something and all was well. Turns out that it worked. I've recently had my car worked on due to overheating issues and i think the mechanic i took it to might have plugged that piece back in. do you have any idea how i could recognize that piece on a 1994 cavalier? i read that it's a blue plug but i don't know how many wires it has or where exactly it is connected. i would really appreciate anybody's help on how to locate the tcc solenoid or mainly the plug that is connected to the transmission that needs to be pulled.
#145 of 208 starter is acting up, really strange
Dec 09, 2009 (11:22 pm)
I have a 97 cavalier Z24, automatic, and when I try to start it, once every 5 times or so, it does nothing at all. It doesn't even try to roll over, it makes a sound like as if it were already started and I were trying to start it again. It only does this in spurts, chances are I need a new starter but if it is something else perhaps, seeing as how this only happens sometimes, I'd like to know.

#148 of 208 Chevy Cavalier engine light problem.
Jan 01, 2010 (4:48 pm)
I'm in New Zealand, where we have a lot of Toyota badged RHD Chevy Cavaliers. On my '96 2.4 ltr, for a few weeks when I turned the key on, the gages all flickered and it made a static type sound. I had to turn the key on and off until it worked normally and then it went fine. Now thats stopped, but the engine check light only comes on about every 10th time I turn the key, and there's no way it'll run until that light comes up. Once it does, it starts and runs and idles fine. Looks from other replies that its emissions system related, but is any particular sensor likely to be the culprit. Our GM dealers don't want to know about these cars, nor do Toyota dealers, so I'm not sure we can even run the diagnostics.

is your cavalier an automatic trans? if so the tcc solenoid could be the problem. the solenoid can be disconnected on some cars. it is a 4 wire plug on the front of the trans. unplug it and try the car. let me know what happens

Hi, thanks, yep, all the cavs in NZ are 2.4 4stage auto models. I'll try what you suggest tomorrow and let you know,

Just something to look at, "fuel pressure regulator" !

Also , check the TCC "torque converter solenoid", these go bad and will cause the engine to stall. If you get your car started, put it in reverse and see if it stalls out, if not, probably the TCC is bad !
#153 of 208 Fix for stalling cavailers
Mar 25, 2010 (3:17 pm)
Ok,i have a 1993 cavalier and after it would warm up it would stall while driving then it was really hard to get it started again. I replaced alot of things from the fule pump to the coil packs,still nothing worked. Just today my mother went out and played around with it and thought the butterfly flap might be getting stuck to the intake. Then i went out to help her and was looking around and found out that my kick down cable was really tight. so,we took off the kick down cable from the throttle and its running great! Befor you go out and buy all kinds of parts to try and fix this pain in the a$$ problem,try taking off the kick down cable that is located on the throttel,the same spot where the gas pedal cable is. IT WORKD GREAT FOR ME. I hope i helped some of you. I know how much of a pain this is.
