You put a 88 motor into a 95 ? What model engines are they. The injector power comes from the fuel pump relay, when the fuel pump is running you have power to the injectors.

On my 2003 Cavalier, the instrument cluster seems to be sticky. The gauges go up but usually don't come back down when the car is shut off. Is this a common problem? I've called some dealerships and all they say is well fr $400 we can replace it. So does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is it best to get it replaced or get it repaired by someone who fixes them?

If you don't get an answer here, you might try posting in the Got a Quick Technical Question? over on the Maintenance & Repair board.

Sounds like a short inside the circuit board; the clusters on the 2000-2005 Cavaliers and Sunfires are known for shorting out easy causing all sorts of problems from dimming odometer lights, guages sticking, sections of the cluster not lighting up ect. The best fix is to replace the cluster (about $500 parts + 1.5 hours of labour at the dealer). Your best bet is too find a replacement cluster at a scrap yard. Make sure you get a cluster from a 2000-2005 model. Its simply plug and play.

I had this problem too, I think it's the ECM resetting itself, it lasted for about 10 startups, the first 5, it would stall out, the next 5, it would idle fast between switching gears.
