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

When accelerating through the gears as i drive. I get a vibration when i hit second gear. Then when i hit 3rd gear, it feels like it slips and revs around 3,4k rpm, accelerating really slow. When i hit 4th gear it accelerates normal. If i get on it, i dont have any of those problems. but in rush hour it's a pain. Would a trans filter and fluid change fix this problem?


Sounds like 3rd gear/clutch is worn.I don't think a service will do any good.But if you remove the pan and find debris you know you will need a trans in the near future. ... 1992 Buick Park Avenue
