98 chevy cavalier cuts out and shuts off while driving

Customer Question

98 chevy cavalier cuts out and shuts off while driving
Submitted: 7 years ago.
Category: Chevy
Expert:  Eric replied 7 years ago.



When it cuts off, will it restart immediately, or do you have to wait awhile before it starts back up?


Any repairs attempted to this point?


Lastly, 2.2 or 2.4L engine?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Will not restart imediatley. When tested after towing it showed no current going through, then retested later it had the proper voltage. Replaced, battery, alternator and distributor cap

Expert:  Eric replied 7 years ago.



Are you sure its a 1998 Cavalier? The 1998 is a distributorless ignition system - there is no distributor on it.


Could you get me the 17 digit VIN code so I check what you have...
