What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Cavalier, Fuel System, Sedan

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 17 acceleration problems (Check - Engine)
Nov 17, 2011 (2:55 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 17 cavalier fuel system problem
Mar 17, 2012 (5:57 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.
#17 of 17 Kinda having teh same porblem
Jul 11, 2013 (9:24 am)
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
