Asked by Aug 03, 2014 at 05:15 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 1996 cavalier will not take throttle in gear. It sputters and dies you have to ease into the throttle to get it to move. I have replaced the fuel regulator,relay,filter. I have also replaced the tps,map,the little sensor in the air filter hose.

The fuel pump is good I checked it. Also forgot to mention the miles it only has 75,xxx original miles . From what I've seen and heard dosen't timing problems show up on higher mile cars.
