Why would a 92 Cavalier start when it is cold but not stay running after a while?

it might be a bent piton rod if you or water or somthing into the engine

if it tends to sputter and have no power i would suggest the fuel pump. it it is only after the car has warmed up, or a while after you start driving it might be the ignition module.

Car would either have to be running or alternator removed for bench test

I doubt that running out of gas will my the low trac light come on. I own an 02 Cavalier, and the trac light has to do with the amount of traction you have on any given surface. If you know a mechanic I would have them check it out.

Have someone check your fuel pump pressure,if you lose fuel pressure while driving,and then it comes back that would explain why it seems to start by itself.

About a zillion things, one would be a bad fuel pump. If it will jump start and drive a few miles then die again replace your alternator.

Possibly both of them are burned out (common). You were running on only one for a while and then that one burned out. The indicator would still be lit.

I think it would be difficult to find a muscle that is not in use while running

A light in your car might be on, running down the battery!!

There are 2 fans that would be running while you are driving and that is normal... the compressor fan if you have the air conditioner running and the radiator fan runs to help keep the radiator cool while the engine is on.

Since the Cavalier is out of timing, check the timing gears and belt. It sounds like the belt has slipped and is causing the base problem with the car.

Ask your mechanic, he would know better. But, there is a pin near your gear selector that is engaged when you are in any drive gear, park or neutral, as well as when your key is in the running position, start position etc, that is not functioning properly. The pin is in a state of "feeling" like you are still in any one of those positions and you obviously know that you can't pull your key out of the ignition while your car is running anyway. So this pin has your key locked in the ignition because it thinks your car is still running.

Try checking the fuses. If ok, then it is a wiring or electrical prob. You might also want to check your ignition switch. it may not be making contact properly. I found this happening on my1991 cavalier also. If I would twist the ignition like I was going to start it again, but not far enuff to grind the starter, everything would start woring again. this would sometimes last a long time and other time not so long. So, with that said I would place my money into the ignition switch.

To be cavalier is to show disregard. An example sentence would be: His cavalier attitude was very bothersome to everyone.

If it is your voltmeter that drops while the vehicle is running. Most likely the alternator isn't putting out enough volts.

It will while the program is running, but after it stops running there will be no change in computer speed.

Kinetic if you are just walking, if you plan on running it would be potential until you actually start running
