I have a 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier Sedan 2.2 L 4 cylinder automatic w/ approx 109,200 miles on it. After driving my vehicle for about 1 hour 15 min w/ heater/defrost on and about 2 1/2 hours w/out the heater and defrost on, when I come to a stop, my vehicle starts to stutter or chug, if you will. Then when I stop, the engine shakes makes a vibration noise (kind of like grinding) and shuts off. I try to turn the vehicle back on, and it starts up great, but idles really high (I don't have a tachometer to advise of the RPMs), then when I put it into gear, and it repeats itself. I have to let the vehicle cool down for about 10-20 minutes before it becomes driveable again. I've changed the fuel pump and the thermostat. And fyi my temp light doesn't come on to tell me I'm overheating. I really don't want to keep throwing parts at it, but she's all I've got! Help Please!
have the same problem?
