2001 chevy cavalier 2.2 L rough idle

Asked by Aug 17, 2017 at 04:17 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Base Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car ran great for three days. I purchased
the car and put a fuel pump in. The previous
owners had battery issues and I located a
ground that was supposed to be mounted
on the starter so I moved it but broke the
bolt on the starter. I did not know it. I drove it
home and next morning it wouldn't start. I
played with starter and noticed the problem
so towed it back to shop and replaced the
starter and now it has a terribly rough idle
and gas smell and won't stay running unless
the gas is.pressed enough to keep rpms at
about 1500. I changed cam / crank shaft
sensor, fuel pump, coil packs, spark plugs,
checked wires, checked fuel filter, put new
gas in... I'm thinking timing , no compression
or carb? Please someone help. I don't want
this to be a total loss. I want to fix it and get
rid of it asap and never buy a cavalier again..
my mistake
