Asked by Marilyn Mar 30, 2019 at 12:44 PM about the 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Coupe FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Mom's 1991 Chevy Cavalier 4 cylinder has
started sputtering and she's wondering what
causes it to do so and what kind of repairs are
needed if any.

2 Answers


There are a few possibilities that causes sputtering. Start with the plugs and plug wires and if they're good, check your fuel pressure. If there's a check engine light, have an OBD hooked up to check the engine codes and that'll pinpoint the exact problem.


A good fuel system cleaner in the gas would also be a good idea.
