Having problems with your 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier ?
In Cold weather my 2001 Chevy Cavalier died frequently?
\015 I thought at first it was gas line freeze. When driving the car on a test run the throttle "Stuck" about 2/3 of the way. Another issue is that the electrical system surges with the engine???\015\012\015\012I put a "Gallon" of Heet in over a short period of time, changed the alternator and battery and still had the problem. Then once the weather warmed it stopped?\015\012\015\012This problem is perplexing and my worry is that my daughter will have the sticking throttle problem and panic when she is driving it, and no parent wants that.\015
Check the throttle linkage at the throttle body look for anything that could be binding the linkage up and preventing the throttle from closing, (ie something getting caught in there) if thats ok, the cable could be starting to fray inside it's sheath and binding up the throttle as well or could be kinked. if thats the case, a new throttle cable is needed. Also besure that the cruise wasnt on and you didnt engage the cruise by accident.
