1997 Chevrolet Cavalier, 2.2 engine, mileage: 112996. Car was drivin fine until on a slight incline it just went slower and slower until it stalled and wouldn't restart. Car was pushed off to side of road and left for aproximately 1-2 hours. Came back and car started fine ran home with service lite on. Code was po300. After that the can of Heet added, wires, fuel filter and PCV were replaced (Plugs have about 20k miles on them). Now when the car is cold it starts and runs just fine (I haven't felt good enough obout trips of over 10 miles but in traffic the run time has been up to 40 minutes) until it is stopped. After that car won't start until sitting for aprox 5 minutes. If it does start it runs very rough and stall unless gas pedal is pumped. Some testing I have done after that is to test different run times and if car is cold and is run for less time than needed to warm up (usually from 1 - 5 minutes) it will not restart at all. When it has warmed up it will usually restart and run rough and aeventually die until it sits for more that 5 minutes.
have the same problem?
