Hello Scotty! I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier LS 2.2L ….. our neighbor recently gave us and we have been driving it for about a few months now... My husband just put a new starter on the car because it wouldn't start. he also bought a new battery.... he put the new starter on yesterday it ran ok last night and taking our kids to school this AM, but on our way home it cut off at a stop sign... the ABS and battery light were on.... a nice guy came by and gave us a jump... the car started but at every stop light or sign the car acted like it wanted to cut off and my husband had to keep pressing the accelerator so it wouldn't cut off..... we don't have a lot of money to keep trying to fix it. We jus need to know what to do so we can be able to get our kids to school out of the rain.... PLEASE HELP US

Check alternator output. Most auto parts will check for free
