why dose a 1996 chevy cavalier not take throttle in gear


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

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.

Check timing,and may be check fuel pump.


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.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Also it has the 2.2 liter in it


Not really,low mile.s and time play issue,s with timing belt,s,just cause it is low mile,s,,,look at the age of belt over 14 year,s,it,s bad,,check timing for belt slippage,think it may be outa time,,
