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!

when my 2.2 97 did this it was the trany going bad.
u might want to check that out first.
i took mine in right in time all the gears blew out when they test drove it to find the problem.(they had to push it)
but yeah check or get the trany checked.
