Stells after warmed up SolvedSolved

Chevrolet Cavalier 1998 2 dr. 2.2 liter 217000 miles
Start the car up when it's cold and runs fine. Gets up to operating temperature and stalls. Tried starting turns over but won't run. Let it cool down for a half an hour will run after starting. Checked coil packs when cold there's spark. Check them after the car stalls out no spark. Replaced coil packs does the same thing. What could it be. It gets fuel cause you can hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

If anyone out there has this problem. Check for spark if there's no spark then check again after it cools down. If there is spark after cooldown it's the ignition control module behind the coil packs which are mounted onto.

T/C light and gears

Chevrolet Cavalier 2003  80000 miles
My problem started after the car overheated, the cylinder head cracked because of the heat and it needed to be replaced. At the same time, the transmission oil was changed. The T/C light started turning on and, when it does so, every time I change the gears, they seem to generate a kick in the engine. It is not the only case but, every time I turn on the air conditioning, this failure takes place. If I am driving and the T/C light is off, then there is no gear failure either. The starter light sometimes turns on by itself as well. Something else: when the car stops moving, the air conditioning stops cooling too. Two sensors have been changed and a tuning was made, but the problems are still with me. Any recommendations?

Check the TPS sensor, located in the throttle body. It is the most probable cause of your problem.

I had a car with a 2.2 engine and your same problem and the cause was the damaged TPS sensor.

Cranks but No start

Chevrolet Cavalier 2002 LS Sport 2.2L 140000 miles
Drove my car to work one day and drove home. Next morning went to drive it to work again but, wouldn't start. Have replace coil module and spark plugs due to 1,3 having low visible spark. Still no start. Checked timing and appeared to have jumped upper chain 7 teeth. Installed new timing kit and set timing for upper and lower timing chains. Still no start. I'm confused about this. Is there anyone who might know what's going on? Please help. I'm borrowing bosses truck, so really need my car running.

Start good warm runs bad

Chevrolet Cavalier 1988 Z24 2.8 litre 195000 miles
Starts fine sounds smooth. The minute it warms up it misses sputters stall dies. Have to double foot it to get it home. Let it cool off rand repeats all over again. I have replace all the sensors two new brains new cool packs new plugs and wires ran injector cleaner through it sea foam through it i'm ready to scream. One day it started acting up like this nothing traumatic happened to the car. Super frustrated. I read on a blog that where the computer is grounded under the coil packs sometimes the harness look like they are connected but here not getting enough connection they were all right. Any suggestions ? Help

Car will not start

Chevrolet Cavalier 2004 2.2 ecotech 190000 miles
Last Monday I got in my car started it and drive 1.5 miles home. It was very loud pulled in my parking lot parked, and turned key off. Waited bout an hour went out and checked my oil and to my surprise there wasn't any registering. I added 2qts and started it waited 10 minutes for car to warm up and noise starting away. Put it reverse backed 15ft changed to drive and it died. No restart. I have thus far have replaced the:
Ckp sensor
Fuel filter
Spark plugs
Fuel regulator
Coil above spark plugs. I'm getting spark and if leave foot on pedal a minute I smell gas. I've checked the pressure and it is right. It also turns over. I am stumped
