I had the same problem on my 1999 Omega V6.
It was looked at by several people and no-one could seem to find the reason for it happening. In the end, I removed the accelerator cable (which includes the kickdown switch for the auto box, located near the bulkhead), and took apart and cleaned the kickdown switch (the small rectangular black box) This solved the problem completely. I would suggest that if cleaning does not work, then the cable (including kickdown switch) be replaced. Hope this helps P.S.

They are located below the black plastic where you see the "ECOtec" logo on the engine top. You have to remove screws and pull out the ignition coils to see the spark plugs. By the way GM's 2.2 Ecotec use direct ignition, so there's no spark plugs wires.
Yes, it does.
The 2.2 liter Chevy ecotec?æwill fit into your 1998 Chevy Cavalier. The wiring harness and the motor mounts will need to be replaced.
you will more than likely need a new engine controller if you do that, but yeah if everything matches you could probably pull it off.
To replace the thermostat on a 2002 Cavalier 22 Ecotec, drain the radiator and remove the upper hose assembly. Replace the thermostat and refill the radiator.
