Hesitation can be caused by several things:

1. A faulty throttle position sensor might cause hesitation.

2. A faulty MAP or MAF sensor might also cause hesitation.

3. A problem with the engine control module might cause hesitation.

I had a 1987 Chevy Celebrity that would start and then immediately die. It turned out to be bad fuel injectors. I replaced three fuel injectors and the problem has not returned.

Reasons why a 1987 Chevy Celebrity might not have a spark: 1. The crankshaft position sensor has failed. 2. The ignition module has failed. 3. The engine computer has failed. 4. There is a wiring problem. 5. It could also be failed coils, but I would not expect all three coils would fail at once.

If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is smaller that the Saturn radiator it might well overheat from not enough cooling capacity. If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is the same size or larger than the Saturn radiator I would think it would not over heat.

I have not seen a standard Chevy Celebrity with a toggle switch under the dash. I would suspect that is something a previous owner installed.

To answer your question I would need to know the year of your Celebrity as well as which one of the four transmissions it has.

I would think that on size alone it would fit and mount in. Depending on which of the engines the 1985 Celebrity had you might need to make a number of modifications to use the Corsica engine in the Celebrity. The two engines are NOT identical.

There is no way to post the detailed description plus illustrations that would help you do a brake job. I would suggest you consult either a Chilton manual or Haynes manual to help you do a successful brake job on your Chevy Celebrity.

TheChevy Celebrity engine wiring harness would not likely be available new from Chevrolet. The only likely source would be a wrecking yard and prices there vary widely from yard to yard.

most Chevy cps's are located in the timing cover(behind the balancer). I'm not certain on the Celebrity, but it would be a good place to check.AnswerOn my 1986 Celebrity 2.5, it is beneath the intake manifold on the back of the engine.

I would need to know the year and engine type to answer this question.

I would suspect a failing ignition control module.

Check your alternator switch , I had the same problem before , it was loos ..good luck

That would tend to indicate that the alternator was not charging the battery for that interval.

According to one source I found the weight of a 1989 Chevy Celebrity varied between 2751 to 2928 pounds. Actual weight of a given car would depend on engine, transmission and other options.

I would suggest that you take your car to a wheel shop and see what they have that will work.

I would suggest you take the car to an automotive upholstery firm.

I would suspect low fuel pressure would cause both conditions.

I found one source that says a 1986 Chevy Celebrity has a curb weight of 2714 pounds. Different options would change that weight.

I would suspect that the car has a problem with either the shift cable, or perhaps the cable has popped off of the shift linkage on the transmission. If not one of those then it might be a problem with a stuck or broken mechanism inside the transmission.

you would need to change the differential gears to change the gear drive.

As I understand it all of the GM "A" body cars have the same roof line. That would be the Chevy Celebrity, the Pontiac 6000, the Buick Century and the Oldsmobile Cierra of the "A" body years 1982 to 1996?.

Shorter springs would be one way to lower a car. Weak springs would be another way.

If I had to replace a fuel line I would get a replacement out of a car in a wrecking yard and install that.

MAKE IT CONVERTABLE AND DROP A HEMI IN 'ER why would you put such a crappy motor in the best vehicle
