#159 of 207 2005 chevy cavalier ls sport stall in reverse
Aug 19, 2010 (2:11 pm)
I had several issues with my cavalier, car windows sticking (common problem with this car it seems), and currently I'm getting the instrument panel replaced because my service light, trac off, and ABS light comes on a lot. $500!
I have another issue with the car that the dealership is researching as we speak, my car when put in reverse sometimes stall or even dies. Usually, if I put it in reveerse and accelerate real quick in drive it won't , but I'm worried about the times I can;t do it fast enough. Any ideas what this could be?? Only has died when in reverse after I just started the car.

I am literally having the EXACT same issue with the reverse stall/dying thing. My service, ABS, and trac off lights are also on (and off sometimes??) Have you figured anything out, or gotten any helpful advice -- because I would LOVE to know!! Thank you thank you!

I had the rough running and stalling issue and it was nothing more than the little hose between the inlet manifold and the pressure sensor that was perished and sucking in air. I also have the clank into engagement, especially when I've just started up. I live with it, but find if I roll forward a bit down my street before engaging drive that eases it.

Hey everybody my 90 Cavalier z24 automatic its v6 fuel injected has some problems. First to start i changed spark plugs and did a throttle body cleaner. heres the problem. The car starts and idles a little high a little above 1000 rps. When i step on the gas while car is running but parked black smoke comes out of the exhaust and you can feel that its running crapy. Then when i put it in drive and step on the gas the rpms drop like crazy and it almost stalls. sometimes it does stall when i do that too. Im really comfused any help would be great!!

Hi, alsoin New Zealand and have the 2.4 '96 Chevalier. Engaging sometimes,but then cuts out. Other times starts fine. I dont think its starter, but pehaps some type of fuel sensor ? Love this car but dont want to be chasing different theries and $. How did you get on with yours ?
#167 of 207 CAVALIER CUTTING OUT.
Oct 02, 2010 (2:10 am)
Hi to the other NZ owner,
My problem was the ignition switch. When that was replaced, all was fine. I've had another problem since with the engine running very rough at lower revs and cutting out. It was just a small vacuum hose between the inlet manifold and the sensor, right at the very front of the engine in the middle, easy to see so worth checking. The hose had perished and fallen off, replaced with a piece of plastic hose and good again..for now.

My 02 Cav is a 2.2L, manual transmission and I've been the only owner. When I slow down to almost a complete stop it stalls on me and my engine and oil lights come on, I loose my power steering and I can't tell if my headlights go out also...
I've been having this problem on and off for about 2 months now and it's driving me nuts. I've been to the mechanic 4 times and he still cannot fix the problem. I'm at my wits end!
So far they've replaced the battery once and cleaned the fuel line, and idle air control and throttle body cleaning twice each. The mechanic says there was lots of carbon and this is the reason why the first cleaning didn't work. My car runs fine for two days and guess what.... today it stalls in the middle of an intersection while I am turning left and I almost get plowed by another driver. To be honest now I'm scared to even drive the stupid thing and I'm beyond frustrated. A friend suggested to try a fuel cleaning product like SMP so I will try that tomorrow and see if it helps.... I think I need to switch mechanics and try taking it to a dealership or someone who specializes in chevy's cuz having to go back 4 times to this mechanic and now a 5th shows they are incompetent.... GRR!
Any suggestions would help please... thanks in advance.
