Having problems with your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier ?
1989 z24 dies when stopped and transmission acts up a little?
\015 I bought this z24 for 375 I put a new air filter, oil filter fuel filter, changed the oil and transmission fluid and filter. Me and my dad found a few vacuum lines that were broken, we put electrical tape around them it seems to hold, but recently we found one that might lead to the transmission, we dont know. now for the problems-car dies when i stop unless i put it into nuetral, idle goes down a bit when i put my lights on, when i get out of my car after driving for about 10 miles i hear this really wierd sound, found out at the gas station that it the gas tanks leaking compressed air. the transmission doesnt kick in to 2nd and 3rd gear until 5000 rpm, and when i slow down it kicks into hard. I also use about quarter tank of gas only going about 25 miles- really bad!!! any one have ideas? i think maybe fuel pressure regulater, or AIC valve, egr valve?\015
Trans lock-up switch maybe?
Transmission torque converter solenoid. Try disconnecting and see if the problem stops. You can leave disconnected, but you will have a significant drop in fuel mileage. Not hard to replace if that is what the problem is.
