The RPMs while I'm driving seem to jump all the time... It will be on 2 and then will jump to 3 and sometimes it will be at to and drop down to 0 and then back to 2 in a split second!

Check IAC sensor and TPS and MAF sensors if IAC is ok. IAC will amke your idle go up and down all crazy and cause stalls when slowing down or releasing throttle but TPS and MAF also can effect this. ... Dodge Intrepid

My 1993 Chevy lumina euro keeps dying when i am driving. Sometimes it won't even start. When it dies while driving it starts right up like new a few times and takes 15-20 mins other times. This last time i had to jump it to start it. It dies or will not start on hills always. it does not do this every time i drive and sometimes not for a week or so however the time between seems to be getting shorter (about every other time i drive the car).

I've taken my 2006 Chevy Malibu to the dealership and they didn't do anything because they couldn't feel the problem. It's a LS 2.2L with about 38,000 miles on it. Lately, especially when there's a hard wind, when driving up hills it will "jump" or hesitate it seems. Which I thought was it jumped then downshifted but as I've been watching the RPM's since getting my car back from the dealership and have seen that it will jump and the rpm's won't change. Most of the time it doesn't downshift when

My 2001 Chevy Cavalier came up with a crankshaft position sensor code after stalling the other day. I bought the part from Auto Zone and had it installed by a mechanic. The signal went away and the car seemed to be driving good. After about a half hour the car began to stall again. It seems to run fine for short trips, but once the car is running for a longer period of time there are stall issues. One second the car is running just fine, and the next either the gas pedal stops responding al

My 2004 chevy cavalier cranks but wont start. It has been looked at by a mechanic , he said it has no compression. The timing chain is fine. there was no smoking or loud noises. It just started to kind of chugging along one morning, like it had a hard time warming up or something and when I parked and turned it off that was it, it would not start again.


I have seen this on a car that was traded in. apparently it had been real hot at one time. but with no compression it will not start, and would probably be cheaper to purchase another engine. sorry, and GL ... Chevrolet Cavalier

2001 Chevy Cavalier runs fine most of the time but will randomly not start. Sometimes will start a few hours later or the next day and run fine for days or months? The starter was replaced. When dead no crank, lights or anything. It cannot be jump started when this happens.


The 'no lights' part makes me think it could be a bad ground -- follow the ground cable from the battery where it should connect with the chassis then continue on the the engine itself -- make sure it's very firmly connected at each point (battery en ... 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. Last winter I started seeing coolant under the car every now and then. I found that if I let it set and idle for a period of time (10 min.) it would leak fluid until I allowed the car to cool down. After some checking, I decided to replace the expansion tank cap. It holds pressure since the radiator does not have a cap. It seemed to work, and I had no problems throughout the summer. Now that it is getting cooler again, I have noticed more coolant under my car.


What is necessary here is for you to trace down the leak source. What you previously did may have nothing to do with the current problem and without actually locating where the coolant is coming from the best anyone can do is guess. Water pumps ... 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

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.
