I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier that shakes then shuts down every so often, it seems to happen most when the car is idleing or stuck in stop and go traffic, when this happens, I shut the car off and leave it sit for a couple of hours, but then I can't start it back up, it turns over but won't fire. After leaving it sit for a while, sometimes overnight, it will start back up. Also the battery just died because a light got left on, and when I got it jumped and started again, only one speaker was work

I have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe and yesterday while on freeway it just shut off so I sat for about 2 hours and then it started whent for about 10 minutes and it shut off again. Sat for about 30 minutes and it started but was difficult to keep running and didn't have much power. I had to keep feathering the gas pedal and if I had to stop for a light than it died and I had to let it sit again. Two days ago I had the dealer replace the seal on top of fuel tank and another hose now this is happening.What


Probably your coil pack. That's usually how they act. They'll give you one extra chance to get home, and that's it. If it's not that then it's probably the fuel pump or filter, but the fact that it started again leads me to believe it's your coil pac ... 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe

1995 Chevy Lumina has a hard time starting up in hot and cold weather after vehicle sits over night, or for more than 3 to 4 hours, it take three to four turns of the key in the ignition before car starts, then engine revs between 1 and 4 on the rpm, does this for about five minutes, sometimes collapsing below one and engine shuts off, was told car needed a tune up bad, got a full tune up, but problem still exist, car is also leaking oil, low oil light on, and spot beneath car is the proof, plea


You may need a mechanic for this.The strong gas smell and the hard starting could be connected.You could have a leaking injector, or faulty pressure regulator. And you could have a fuel leak in the line.A mechanic would do a visual inspe ... 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

When my 2005 chevy cavelier is idling (at stop lights, sitting in park, etc) where should the rpms be? I have a friend saying my rpms are too low when idling. Right now they are between 0 and 1. Thanks

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable and had to replace the battery a month ago. Today, after driving for 20 min on the highway I stopped at the store and shut car off. It would not start back up, it was completely dead. After letting the car sit for a couple hrs, it started right up, but then my battery light came on, and my dash lights and head lights got really dim and windows would not work, while the car was started. Then it would only go 5 mph. So I shut the car off and now it won't start agian

I have a check engine light on in my 99 malibu and the code reads P1810 , is this a sensor problem? I was driving along the hwy just fine and then I took off from a stop light and the car acted like it didnt want to shift and go over 35-40mph. Stop and let car sit for 5 min. and started shifting fine but check engine light was still there, got to a friends and shut it off and started it back up 15 min. and it didnt want to shift again..is this going to be expensive?


If you are really really lucky, it is the harness on the side of the transmission. Unplug the harness looking for corrosion. Clean and reassemble.It could be the TFP Switch, wires connecting TFP to PCM or the PCM is bad ... 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

I have a malibu 2006 and my power steering is freaking out on me.It all started be the steering wheel moving by its self while i'm stopped. now the light is going on and shutting down the power steering.

91 Corvette - Service Engine lights, Speedometer goes (usually) to 0, Average miles per gal goes to 5Y5, engine stops. Engine cranks but will not start. Wait a bit, remove key, insert key and it will usually start. only code is 12 which is normal. (Speedometer sometimes goes to 108 or 17 instead of 0 - while sitting and Idleing) Can sometimes get out of engine stopping by flooring it - must be driving to do this.

Well it could be the sending unit for the gauge.But odds are the oil pump or engine bearings are worn out.As the engine warms up, the metal spaces expand and the oil gets thinner. The oil pressure drops some under normal conditions, but not ... 1996 Chevrolet C1500

My '99 Chevy Lumina LTZ had a peculiar problem today. The check engine light came on, then while stopped at a light, the voltage light came on. After driving almost home, the air-bag light and the anti-lock light came on. At my drive way, the transmission reved up, but the but could barely creep into my garage. I let it set for a couple of minutes and looked at the engine to check the belts. When I tried to crank it, it made a noise like the starter was bad. I recently had the starter rep


You have a bad alternator. low voltage can make lots of things act weird on the car. ... 1999 Chevrolet Lumina

Just bought second hand 98 chevy lumina and someone stopped me saying I have no brake lights, so I checked and I only see a place for backup lights and turn signal lights. Why do I not have any break lights except for the window brake lights?


My 98 lumina has the exact same problem. I have found a way to fix this without buying anything. Try barely pulling back on the turn signal switch (pull it towards you 1/32 of an inch) and hit your brakes, they will work. ... 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier 4cyl automatic. When i drive the car i notice that when i am at a stop or a drive thru, that the car starts to sputter and rev like it wants to shut off. Almost the same reaction as if it was out of gas. So i watched the head lights, the dash lights, and the dome lights an noticed that when the engine would sputter the lights would flicker or dim. So i had the alternator checked and it was fine and the battery is brand new. So I was told that it could be a fuel


More than likely the engines automatic idle speed control system is full of sludge, what the engine is doing is what we call surge, it speed's up and slows down, this changes the alternators output voltage in th ... 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier

Recently, the inside light on my 2003 Chevy cavalier began fading on while I'm driving or when I stop at a light. Sometimes it fades off when I start moving again built it also stays on after I park, shut off the engine, get and close the door. Also, when I go to open the door to get in, the light does not fade on as it automatically should. Has anyone ever heard of this?


Sounds like your light switch is sticking ,you'll have to find it and lubricate it with penetrating lube.The switch may be a plunger switch that moves when the door is closed ,but I think it's part of the latch.Spray the switch and open and close the ... 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
