2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Ecotec 2.2 L Idle Problems

Asked by Mar 19, 2015 at 02:54 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2 L Ecotec, and when I come to a stop light or put the
car in park to idle, the car begins to miss, as if it is trying to quit but doesn't.  You can
see the RPM hand drop each time it does this.  Any information would be greatly
appreciated.

Do you have a check engine light? If so, go to any auto parts store and they can read the code.

Got it fixed. Thanks GM guy!! :-)
