Do you mean a spark plug is not firing?  How do you know that? If that is the case try replacing the spark plug... the overheating issue could be a number of things, check all your fluids/coolants and make sure all hoses in engine bay are intact and connected. Best thing would be to take your car to a place that will do a free diagnostic like AAMCO. The clearer your question the more specific answer i can give... hope this helps :)

Normally whe nthe car is running the engine is hot, if it is very hot, it might be your thermostat, the radiotr and or the lead may not be working, better off going to a mechanic not here

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil

Firing Orders
  • Sending Units And Sensors
  • Starting System

    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

    1996 chevrolet cavalier working on only 2

    Your plugs are fouling out probably from excessive wear on the piston rings. Replace the plugs and check them in about 3 days to a week and see how bad they look. Clean them if necessary and reinstall them. Your engine will burn oil that slips past the rings if they are worn. Usually this will happen when the engine is cold and the rings have not expanded. The expansion is normal so what I suggest is at your next oil change use 3 quarts of the regular oil that you use and 1 quart of 20w/50. The thicker oil will help seal the rings a little better. Don't use more than a quart or 2 at the most because it will make your oil pump work harder causing premature failure.

    no, it won't - the ranges that are interchangeable (to the best of my knowledge) are 95-99 00-02 03-05 (each 'sub-generation' within the 3rd gen Cav)

    If the fuel pump is working, you should be able to hear it whirring in the gas tank for 2 or 3 seconds when you first turn the key to the "run" position, without turning the engine over. It should do this each time you turn the key on.
