Just the sender unit most likely.

Check with the previous owners and see if they replaced the instrument cluster in the car. The 99 has a different sending unit than all other year cavaliers and if it was replaced or the sending unit was replaced this could be your problem. I ran into the same problem with my 99 when I tried to replace the cluster for a cluster with a tach out of a different year cavalier.

I have a 2001 cavalier that I bought new. it has about 215,000 miles on the clock and still runs good. The engine has started to miss from time to time going down the road. I have taken it to a mechanic whom I think I can trust but he tells me that he scans it for trouble codes but nothing comes up. Has anyone had the same trouble and got it fixed? I would like to keep my cavalier for many more miles

Has it had regular tuneups? How old are some of the components such as plug wires, plugs, ignition coil, PCV valve and fuel filter?

My 05 Cavi did this up until yesterday, been doing it about a week. Spark plugs, coil boots(wires), Lucas injector treatment and running around a little bit cleared it up, isnt doing it anymore.

car cold starts first time every time, runs well at highway speeds. when warm and going below 30 mph car will stahl. wont start again until engine cold. when ignition is on, fuel pump isnt priming., when I start cold starts up just fine. When I am going highways speeds, there are no ussue, car runs fine

this could be the cps sensors it doesn't always trip the engine light and does not always show on a scan.

no fuel is reaching to the injector but the filter is not clogged and it will turn over the first attempt but die after 1.5 seconds like it ran out of gas again but i have gas in the tank and after that first attempt it wont turn over anymore i have been told there is a sensor in the fuel pump that mite be out and ive been told that there could be a fail safe that disengages it if oil pressure is to high and i got told it was a bad fuel injector, i jus need proffesinal advice right now i have the positive disconected from the battery for 30 mins to reset is what i was suggested to attempt do you have any advice or information for me please?
#15 of 16 acceleration problems (Check - Engine)
Nov 17, 2011 (3:55 pm)
At wits end.... A friend of mine bought a 2003 cavi about 4 months ago, car ran good up until a few weeks ago. Then on a trip to Ohio the Check engine light came on and stayed on but otherwise seemed to run OK, She was worried to keep driving the car that way so we went to autozone and had it checked out......the guy said it was "possible" the "Mass air flow sensor" was dirty, turns out there is no such sensor on the cavalier. Long story short, the car developed an acceleration problem, went to another place and paid $70.00 for a diognoses, they said it was the fuel pressure regulator, another $120.00 parts and labor. Ran fine and no light for about a week, then same problems, took it back and they told us that from the regulator being bad problably ruined the O2 sensor (not which one) wanted another $130.00. I decided to change it myself but when we left there the "light" was out..... Idles fine but don't want to take gas right away on acceleration (bogs down)......can anyone tell me whats going on here ? PLEASE !
#16 of 16 cavalier fuel system problem
Mar 17, 2012 (6:57 pm)
I have a 04 cavalier that was running fine. It has 134000+ on it currently. I was driving a long and made a left turn and car started to bogs. Pulled over and shut car off, but then it restarted but was running ruff and then it died. tried starting car and it seem that it wanted to start but just couldn't. If I wait about 3 minutes, it will start, but die again after 2 seconds and then won't start again until I wait about 5 mins, but then dies and on and on. Same thing again. I know there's gas in the car, I keep my tank full, and I just filled it yesterday and only ran around about a little over 100 miles since then. Anyone have this problem lately and get it repaired? Don't want to be taken for a ride and spend hundreds trying to have it figured out. Thanks for any help that can be offered.
