ill have pictures someday soon when i kill the film roll and develope it this weekend. anyway the cavalier has Z26 wheels, and a funny engine problem in which it stall after it runs for a while, then it wont start til it cools down. the temperature seams to run hotter then normal, past the 220 F mark which it never used to run that hot, and it seams i loose fuel then loose spark shortly thereafter im lost and confused but am slowly narrowing down the problem (any suggestions?)
also picked up a beater,
91 toyota tercel
red, 1.5L 82 hp 90 ft/lbs 4 spd manual
runs 10 times better then the cavalier right now and gets better gas milage but its just not as cool. anyway i know this thread sucks ass without pictures but your gonna have to wait a few days

very possible it could be the crank possition sensor is dieing out on you..
that acctually the most likely possibility we are looking at now, im hoping its that so i can get this thing fixed!! the tercel is not very good for attracting the ladies :pimp:
to start off u could put a 160 thermostat maybe that will help the temp problem
quinker got it right, stupid sensor was focked
