Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
1989 chevy cavalier z24 strats but stalls rapidly
\015 After replacing the motor in this car, i drove it for three days before any issues...then all of a sudden, the motor began to stall. waited 3 minutes after stall and restarted engine. the next day the engine started fine but began trying to stall after only running for 5 minutes. I have changed the fuel pump, inlet sock inside tank as well as the fuel filter...still same issue\015
This problem\012is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and\012throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use\012carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC\012chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is\012running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the\012speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and\012blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the\012negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
