There is no ETF light on a 1996 Chevy Cavalier. But there is an ETS light which stands for 'electronic traction system'. This light turns on where there is a problem with the brake system.
not likely PCM problem... most common cause is either ... Bad Cooling Fan Relay Blown Cooling Fan Fuse or Bad Cooling Fan Motor
Check the coolant levels. Insure that the cooling fan turns on when its supposed to, and the thermostat is not stuck closed. Make sure that the water pump is operating correctly.
it has a bad connection with aground or you have problem with swith or your outlet foryour bubb is bad good luck
There are none, timing is adjusted by the ECM by advancing or retarding the spark in each cylinder. There is a chain in the side of the cylinder head that turns the cam but this is not adjustable.
Sounds like your dimmer switch isn't working or it is turned all the way down for night driving.. It has a setting that allows you to turn off the lights on your dash and radio for driving at night. Locate your dimmer switch and see if it is turned down all the way. If not it may have gone bad and needs to be replaced.
check if it is getting fire
I had an 1988 Chevy Cavalier once, and it did the same thing. Turns out, it had a weak engine mount. During braking, the engine would move just enough to cause the plug between the ECM and the wiring harness to separate slightly, causing a short.

Check for fuel Check for spark
The dimmer switch when turned just past high, turns on the interior lights. There are switches in the door opening that turns the lights off when the door is closed. Either one of these can cause the lights to stay on if they fail.
There is a sensor on most modern cars which turns on the fan when the coolant temperature reaches a certain value. If this sensor is bad, the fan may run continously.
My 1986 Honda Accord Dx just started idling rough and dieing at turns and stops it is a carburated 2.0 witha maunal transmission
There probably is a leak. Is there still freon in it? There are ares in the a/c system that are not visable. Was Dye added?
sounds to me like its probably the alternator.
If the sound occurs only when turning, (left or right) the most likely cause is a loose power steering belt. First check to see if the belt is tensioned correctly, or in need of replacement.
The timing belt has snapped and needs to be replaced.
The small block chevy turns in a clockwise rotation.
It's possible that the lite is your oil pressure sensor. With the engine being older and a bit worn, the pressure drops when idling and when you are driving the oil pump is turning faster which increases oil pressure. A new filter and oil change may help.
I had similar problem, first i had to replace the fuel pump and fuel filter. Then I noticed the tiny hose on the MAP sensor was worn out and had to replace it too. But the problem continued. Had a diagnostic test and it came back with a bad fuel pump regulator and both H2O sensors.
either your motor burnt out or you have a faulty switch that turns them on. Or check the fuse
on the 2001 van, change the idling valve assy.
pickup passengers and no turns
i have a 95 z28 it kept bogging out and dying at lower speeds. turns out it was the low rpm sensor on the distributor. hope it helps i have a 95 z28 it kept bogging out and dying at lower speeds. turns out it was the low rpm sensor on the distributor. hope it helps
The only thing I can think of off the top is that after 10 minutes of standstill idling usually an electric fan might kick on to draw air through the radiator and cool the anti-freeze. Perhaps there is a short in that system.
