97 cavalier runs sometimes

Asked by Nov 04, 2010 at 02:00 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

we can get it to run sometimes. it won't run if you give it more than 3/4 pedal. once it gets warmed up it starts to run like crap until it dies. we have replaced the tps, o2 , fuel filter, plugs and wires, and we are getting ready to change the fuel pressure regulator. anybody had this problem before? it seems to be running lean.
