first check for a clogged fuel filter then look at the fuel pump.
A Cavalier can sputter do to a number of things. Cars sputter due to bad spark plugs, bad compression, broken engine mounts, or even a failing catalytic converter.
if it tends to sputter and have no power i would suggest the fuel pump. it it is only after the car has warmed up, or a while after you start driving it might be the ignition module.
Have you checked the catylitic converter? Had a Datsun B210 that had the same symptoms. Took the converter out and the honeycomb would clog after 20 - 30 minutes driving. Just a thought!
youre driving a ford!
need more info. does it shut down while driving? shut down on decelleration? acceleration? does it sputter or is it like the key was shut off? is there a loss of power before it happens? does it restart right away or do you have to wait , and if so, how long? is the yellow "check engine" light on: Does it stall every ten minutes until it's fully warmed up?
Check the 1989 Honda Accords timing. If the engine has jumped time then the engine will buck and sputter.
its a electronic piece in the key push ron area in the steering collum the key rod connectes it to complete the electric curcuit circle if it cracked it will cause it to shut down and restart by itself..
Could be a plugged fuel filter.

check and see if you are getting fuel ,spark and compreesion these are the three main things if you have all of these repost
bad oxygen sensor bad map sensor
I expect the motor to sputter to life any second, now... The clerk was so exasperated, he could only sputter.
One reason a 1995 Honda Civic might sputter and cough while accelerating during normal driving is because of a bad coil. Another reason could be a bad fuel pump or fuel filter. Still another reason could be a bad oxygen sensor.
The 97 Cavalier could be sputtering because of loss of fuel pressure, or weak spark, among other things. Check these two first to start troubleshooting the problem.
i had my fuel regulator replaced to stop those reactions
Quad driver module? Or your PCM is out.
A weak fuel pump or a partially clogged fuel filter will cause this. Can also be other things.
My camero doesn't sputter ever, even when you accelerate.
Could be a bad ignition coil Have vehicle scanned to see if problem has set any codes
usually this is the fuel pump in the tank going bad. I have had this problem many times for customers.
My bet it is the spark plug wires or spark plugs or rotor cap if it has one. If the wires are going bad, they are worse "under load" (while driving).
What causes a car to jerk while driving can be based on many factors. A car can sputter due to engine compression issues, bad transmission, engine misfire, bad spark plugs or even low fuel.
