Engine problem
1990 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 150000 miles

When I come to a complete stop and then try to turn my vehicle it stutters and shuts off sometimes or it will move foward a little bit and then finally take off.
Do you
have the same problem?

Is the ses light on? Check the codes, heres how. Cross the two terminals as shown, then turn the key to "ON" but do not start it, then count the flashes, a 22 will flash as 2 blinks then a short pause the 2 more blinks. If more than one code is stored, the pause will be longer before it is flashed. This will repear three times then a code 12. Write down your codes and post here. Your last tune-up with filters was?

Im sorry This is my boyfriends car, and Im not to familiar with cars lol. Let me try to rephrase the proplem. Im driving it down the road, and as I am comeing down a hill etc. And stop to wait for oncoming traffic to turn onto the highway first when I stop the car will seem to get really queit like its losing power. When its all clear for me to take off, I will begin to turn and sometimes it will completelty shut off and ill have to put in in park and restart it. Other times it will shake and putt foward a little bit and I will have to keep pumpming the gas until it finally decides to pickup and go. But this isent and all the time affair. I just dont know what I should do. I know some basics about cars but im know mechanic and my boyfriend is no help to me at all.

But that does not answer my question! I am helping over the internet, so the more info I have the better. Is the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light on, if yes go to above answer, if not when was your last tune up? Including ALL filters?
