2002 cavalier 2.2l sfi running issues

Asked by Apr 15, 2017 at 12:24 AM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car wont stay on unless u baby the gas
pedal. And while it's running it shakes and
aputters and dies the minute u let off the
pedal. I replaced fuel pump, battery,
alternator, spark plugs, cam shaft sensor,
and starter. Good fuel filter and good gas.
Help please. It was running great yesterday
and than boom. It sat for 5 years before I
drug it out and revamped it.

Checked the coils?

I drained gas tank and put fresh gas in. Haven't checked for vaccuum leak but I smell gas bad! And sounds like a four wheeler . I didn't replace coils . I looked to make sure they had proper connection though and they were clean. It's throwing a misfire code . Someone said it sounded like timing?
