I have a 97' cavalier! Recently it has been sounding as its running loud. And the gas pedal felt like it was vibrating. Well today I came to a stop sign, when I gave it some gas it acted up! It was a on/off reving sound! I was going barely anywhere! Pedal pressed and getting no acceleration! Just the consistent on/off reving! The engine light also insantly came on! Thankfully I was only a couple blocks from home. When I turned the corner to head home after a block of coasting, it sort of kicked back in! Not like it should be but I was able to accelerate again. I pulled in drive and shut it off! I noticed a burning like smell from the engine! Fluids are all fine! Can someone plz help me. Thank you!

it may be that your transmission is becoming stripped. you should try replacing the fluid and checking the pan magnets for excessive metal. if there is alot of metal you probably have stripped a plate in your trans which at this point will only become worse.
