2002 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 51000 miles
2002 Chevy Cavalier, 2.2 OHV, 51,000 miles, CA emissions. This car runs very well except on cold start up, when the ambient temperature is below 35 degrees. Then it starts well and runs well until it reaches operating temperature (195 degrees). At this point when it should go to close loop it stalls at deceleration. It starts right back (guess it changes to close loop ) and runs find till the next cold start up. I get no check engine light, scanner shows no (DTCs). Intake Air Temp. Sensor, Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor and all sensors read good on scanner. I haven’t been able to get the scanner on it during the cold ambient conditions, as here in NC it may be 20 degrees one morning and 60 degrees the next. I can generally fix my own cars, but I’m puzzled about this one. I can actually watch the Temp. Guage and know when it is going to stall. What should I be checking? Thanks much, Steve
have the same problem?
