I had a similar issue with my 1994 cavalier, it ran well during short trios, but after she was warmed up, and went a distance, she would stall out at red lights and in slow moving traffic. We found out that my torque converter locked up and now that problem has cost my a new tranny, because it started slipping, becasue of the torque converter. Now after fixing the tranny, we can't get it to turn over, it has no fire to start.
i had a miracle mechanic took him 3 min. to fix the problem after 5 different mechanics tried . all he did was to disconnect the transmission sensor switch and the car hasn't giving any problems ever.
I had that issue with my Cavalier and it turned out to be a fuel pump problem. I would check with your local mechanic.
with me it was the o2 censer
Your Chevrolet Cavalier 97 might stall when going downhill because it has a bad fuel filter. It could also be the spark plugs misfiring.
is the exhaust pipe pluged causing back pressure ?
I would guess that you have a cooling problem...if the engine runs too hot the fuel can boil causing a stall like you indicated .
It needs a tune-up.
A bad water pump can cause your car to stall if the bearing has failed or it is causing overheating. A seized bearing will put excessive strain on the engine and stall it out.
it sounds like ur clutch went out in it.
No, it will just stall and cease to run.
Clean the Idle air control valve with carburettor cleaner. If it doesn't fix the issue replace the IAC.
because your a failure and you obviously can't drive!
It might be a problem with your transmission because not all mx6's stall when you put it in drive or reverse.
stop eating mexican food..
possibly a vacuum leak
Check your transmission fluid level and also if the gear chamber is not well greased then it will make them stick causing the vehicle to stall.
There are several sending units (AKA Sensors) in that vehicle. Which one did you have in mind?
* cause it needs to be put in drive to go forward
Check for leaks in the intake manifold or a poor fuel pressure situation.
no it will run rough and stall out
There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.
You've probably got a bad motor mount. In drive the engine and trans twist in an opposite direction from when in reverse. In drive, you get an unwanted electrical connection (like Battery+ to Battery-) somewhere near the starter or the alternator or a sensor or ignition coil causing the stall. Replace any bad motor mounts and you should be OK.
it sounds as though the fuel pump is bad. it will run in neutral, but when you increase the load while trying to drive, it isn't sending the proper amount of fuel to the carb, causing it to stall out.
A faulty muffler will not cause this but a clogged catalytic converter will.
There are three common problems which are causing your car to stall when the clutch is engaged. These problems are either a worn out clutch plate, a warped pressure plate or disc, or a damaged throw out bearing.
u got problems take it to a mechanic
