Distributor cap & rotor button or spark plug wires may be bad. Coil could be weak.
there are four spark plugs.
on the motor
yes, they do! You have to take that pretty little ecotec plate off the top of the engine, the ecotec plate is really the coil packs, and lift that up and the plugs are down under that plate.
You don't you can change them while the car is still hot its no problem.
remove cover from top of engine
To get to the spark plugs on a 2003 Cavalier, the fuel rail needs to be taken apart and removed out of the way. Take a picture of this before removing it so that it can be put back the same way afterward. There will be fuel in the line so keep a bucket handy.
if it is the same motor yes, but some may have different mounts or wiring plugs
Been there before. The problem will be in one of the fuel injectors.
Try changing spark plugs. Blow out dirt around plugs first.
I can't see why it wouldn't... the main thing would be the electrical connector plug, make sure it plugs into the new part before removing the fuel rail and such... also replace the rubber O-ring before installing a used part
4...under the coil cover
under what appears to be the valve cover on top of the engine
Most likely it needs new spark-plugs.
change the air filter, and spark plugs and if the oil hasn;t been chaged latly i have a 2000 2.4 it does the same thing its either the plugs filter or the o2 sensor take car and get a obd2 test and see if a catalyst code comes up and that's your issue. if you have platnium tipped sparkplugs before you change them have them pulled out and see if they just need to be cleaned usually has to be done every 45k
I pulled out all the little rubber plugs on the trunk lid. Problemed solved.
Depending on the plug, it is .050" for most plugs, except for the Denso premium plugs come pregaped at .035"Sparkplugs.com
I dont know how to do it on a cavalier but if your just doing it to lubricate the cylinders you can spray white lithium or just wd40 into the cylinders where the plugs go.
132 ft lbs. becarefull not to snap the plugs
No spark from coil, bad plug wires, or bad plugs.
They should be on the side of the cylinder head. they will have plug wires ging to them.
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.
Your Chevrolet Cavalier 97 might stall when going downhill because it has a bad fuel filter. It could also be the spark plugs misfiring.
Changing the brake light relay switch on your 1999 Chevy Cavalier is quite easy. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.
Time to replace seals, this usually causes misfire.
