Ignition coils could have crapped out. Sometimes cars have one coil per cylnder, and sometimes more than one can fail. This is a limp mode of sorts and will usually allow you to get home, or to a dealer for the service it needs.
Carb adjustment or computer problem depending on equipment and year
mine did that and i replaced the crank shaft sensor,problem was fixed
It turned out to be the alternator going bad. Replaced alternator. No more growling.
where is the daytime running light relay located on a 2002 chevy cavalier
Bent axle? Bent wheel Tires out of balance Engine running on all cylinders?
my 05' cavalier has a bad alternator problem its charging the battery a little bit then stops and the little power my battery has is drained by the end of the night. I replaced the alternator twice and the battery but still no difference.
Could be plugs and wires (spark plugs) I had a mis-fire (only 3 cylinders running) and I replaced my spark plugs and wires, and it worked. I have a 2003 Dodge Neon SE. Cheers!
Usually when a car sounds like a mower it isn't running on all cylinders. Try a tune up and if that don't work try the coil if this car has one.
Buy a new car.
because you broke it!!
A computer running Mac OS will be an Apple Macintosh computer.
No. Frequently powering down your computer actually helps lengthen its lifetime. Continually running the computer even when you're not using it stresses the components.
Because it is burning fuel in its cylinders.
Find out why it is only running on 2 cylinders. Can be bad spark plugs, defective coils, bad fuel injectors, defective spark plug wires, etc.
A 1998 Chevy Cavalier is an interference engine meaning any timing failure will result in catastrophic damage. A free-running engine will simply stop running until and can readily be fixed.
well in my cavalier it's in from of the car on the passanger side...you will see it and a green and black wire running to it....
It has a 6 cylinder motor also known as a V6 I do not think it can run only on 3 cylinders.
Bad spark plug or plug wires. Can also be a burnt valve on those cylinders.
running the computer.
I have already checked and it is not the distributor cap, spark plugs or wires. The car was running fine last night and was on 3 cylinders this morning. Any information would help. Thanks!
with a LOT of fabrication it could be done. Maybe... I have seen a newer cavalier with a caddy northstar V8 in it. There is a video of it running on youtube.
A 1989 Chevy Cavalier will not stay running after it has started if the spark plugs are fouled, the fuel filter is dirty, or it has a vacuum leak. Taking the vehicle to a local mechanic or dealership can pinpoint the problem.
If you mean a inertia switch that shuts off the fuel pump in case of a wreck or something, No. The computer shuts it off if the engine is not running.
Have it replaced.
