Just like the subject says. Chevy Cavalier 160,000k Automatic 4cyl 2.2L
I'll be driving fine until I take my foot off the gas, go around a turn, or apply the break. The car will start to buck and wants to stall. Coming to a full stop will make the car stall unless I put it into neutral. But as soon as I put it into gear, it dies.
I can immediately start it up again with no problem. Until I put it in gear again. Waiting a few minutes will allow me to put it in gear with no problems.
The problem only appears after having driven the car for 20-30 min from a complete cold start. This is the only case I've ever heard where a car runs [i:c77f218c4a]worse[/i:c77f218c4a] once it's been warmed up :lol:
I'm assuming it's the idle air sensor/motor. But what else can I look for before I replace a part I might not need? If it is the idle air sensor, why does it happen after 20 minutes of driving instead of right away?
Check Engine light doesn't come on until [i:c77f218c4a]after[/i:c77f218c4a] the engine dies when all the other instrument lights come on.
have the same problem?
