My 2006 chevy trailblazers check engine light comes on and a large reduction in power occurs when i put the pedal to the floor and activate the kickdown. It loses power, check engine light comes on and idles really rough almost to stall. If i shut off engine for approx 2-3 minutes it starts back up and runs fine but the check engine light stays on until the next day when i start it up the check engine light is off. Any help would be appreciated.

My 2004 cavalier runs rough, the check engine light stays on. It stalls out or acts like it is about to, whenever I drive it. I have it parked for now, don't trust it. I had the fuel pump replaced in 08, could there be a related fuel problem? It had a tune up in October, new plugs and had it checked by scanner. Nobody can tell me why it is doing this. I'm sooooo frustrated. No more Chevy products for me, if this goes on any longer. Can't afford massive repairs now.


The light is on because your computer detected a problem with your vehicle Eric. In all honesty, there are many things that can cause it to go off. You should take it to Autozone to have a free computer scan. They will let you know why t ... 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 1997 chevy blazer with check engine light on, speedometer and rpm not working and gas gage stays at 1/2 tank. First it was just the check engine light on. Got a tune-up, checked the computer on truck for problems, had wires traced for possible shorts. Check engine went off for couple hrs while mechanics checked out car. It came back on while I drove it home. I called mechanics and they don't know what the problem is. Since then, the speedometer, rpm, and gas guage stopped working. I cha

My 2005 Chevy Cavalier is sputtering when I put in drive or any other gear- it does not seem to have sputter when idling. Also - when driving- if you accelerate quickly- hesitation and sputtering are rampant and tach goes way up- then check engine light goes on , Once you settle back down, check engine light goes out and driving resumes with less sputtering. Any advice on whether or not just bad gas (recently filled up) or could it be something more serious- Engine in car has 48000 miles on it a

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier with a 2.2 Liter engine. the car is idling rough and when i'm driving down the road i can only give it about half throttle before it starts bogging down the engine, the check engine light comes on and off whenever it feels like i guess. the code the check engine is "multiple cylinder misfire". I have replaced the fuel filter, plugs, wires, crankshaft positioning sensor, i checked the catalic convertor and its not plugged. The compression on all the cylinders is fine.


Sounds like either the ignition module and or a coil pack is the culprit. I dont remember what year they changed it but if your is the one where the coil packs/module are located on the back of the motor they are a little tricky to get to. You need t ... 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

This sounds like a classic fuel system problem. Manually check your 1 & 3 plugs to prove /disprove the code. If they're OK, which I'll bet they are, check the fuel pump. If it tests good then you have a fouled gas tank, I'll bet. Especially if yo ... 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

Car runs fine the first15 to 20 miles. Then the engine sounds like it is speeding up and then bogging down over and over. When this happens the temperature gauge will go back and forth from cool to hot (not in the red though.) So far there is no check engine light coming on. All fluid levels have been checked. Another problem with the car is it pops. I've only heard it pop when backing out and turning the car. 1998 Chevy Cavalier Automatic with 92,000 miles. Thank you
