Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

Chevy 2001 Cavalier won't start

I have a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and replaced the fuel pump in the late spring of 2012. In late October 2012 I drove it to work and it drove perfect. When leaving to go home the car would not crank. It will turn over but will not start, sounds like it is not getting fuel. I have replaced the fuel filter. When I pour gas into the throttle box it will start and run til there is no more fuel. Any suggestions why I am not getting fuel to the front of the car? Could it be the relay, fuse, pressure regulator? I need help the car is great on gas and I drove 80 miles round trip for work.

Trace the power source from fuse to relay etc and make sure pump is working. if all checks out then check pump working and for preasue at engine. you may have a dammaged fuel line from the tank which would also cause the same problem

SOURCE: fuel pump not getting power

If it has an electric fuel pump in the tank then the rollover switch may have been activated. The reset should be in the trunk.

Check your O2 sensors. They will give that affect and work only when your engine heats up. If the car cools down and starts up again, that is a sign that your O2 sensors are shot. Replace them.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy blazer won't start, no fuel,

Hi Ralph,
First let me say that Jeremy W's answer is absolutely correct.

However, I would like to take a moment to applaud you for your question. Most people would not bother to ask what the correct fuel pressure should be. YES! it is absolutely possible that the fuel pump motor could be spinning and not pumping fuel. This is WHY the fuel pressure should be checked, because this is the only true test that will tell you if your fuel pump is working correctly.

Then I would also like to add that if you find that the fuel pressure is correct, then this only eliminates your FUEL DELIVERY system. It does NOT eliminate your FUEL INJECTION system. It sounds pretty obvious that if it runs when you add fuel to the intake that the problem is definitely fuel-related though.

So if you find the fuel pressure to be OK, let us know and we can help you diagnose the fuel injection system.

You are going about this the right way---isolate the SYSTEM at fault first. Only then can you run pinpoint tests to determine the actual cause of the problem.

Drive on!

98 chevy cavalier turns over but won't start


i know industry jargon can be confusing, but lets try this. if it turns over but won't start, it could be your ''ignition module'' that sits on top of the vave cover on the motor or it might be the fuel pump or filter. make sure when you crank the engine that the key is all the way turned or it may not always make a proper contact to activate the ignition module. iv'e seen this before & had to change the ignition switch & all worked ok after that. i would need to know engine lt size to give you more details on the matter. please get back to me.

Its possible that you have ruined the fuel pump by running it low on gas. Since the fuel pump is cooled by the fuel in the tank it is important not to run them empty.

There are a few things you can do
1. Listen for the sound of the fuel pump running when you turn the key on. It should run for 3-5 seconds.
2. Check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.
3. check for spark.
4. Always post an engine size when asking for automotive advice. This will help give better, more clear directions and what, where, and how to do the above mentioned.

If you can't here the fuel pump running or there is no fuel pressure than your pump is likely bad. A new pump and fuel filter should have you back up and running.

If you here the pump or you have fuel pressure and you don't have any spark than there are several things that can cause this. I can run through those with you once you know whether or not you have spark.

If you're missing fuel or spark or both let me know and I will help you further.
