SOURCE: replace fuel pump on a 2001 chevy cavalier

First, if your car still runs, pull the fuel pump relay, and start your car, letting it run until it dies. This will depressurize the fuel system. Then you must support the fuel tank, and take loose the straps that hold it up. Slowly lower the tank until you can unhook the tank filler hose and overflow hose by taking the clamps off and sliding the hoses off. lower it some more, and unhook the fuel lines; they require you to insert a special tool around the edge of the connection, however this can be improvised with screwdrivers or a piece of plastic or metal bent into a C shape. Next unhook the wire connection. Once you get it down, it's easiest to empty as much fuel as you can; as this will help you get it back into place. The fuel pump is inside the tank, which locks into place with a 1/8th turn. You will need a hammer and a brass punch for this job, as it needs to be tapped around to unlock. It will then lift out. Compare the two pump assemblies. The inside parts can be slightly different, but ensure that the fuel lines are IDENTICAL and the wire connection is IDENTICAL. The new one will come with a new silicone seal. Ensure that you don't put the new one in in such a way as the float doesn't bind, otherwise you'll be doing this procedure again if you don't like guessing how much gas you have. This can be a challenge to wrestle with putting the new one in, as you have to push it down to compress the new seal, and turn it to lock it. Once you get it started, you can let up and use the hammer and punch again to tighten it the rest of the way. Next, put it back together just as you took it apart, and don't forget to hook up the wires, hoses, and fuel lines. No tools required for the fuel lines, they just snap together. Once everything's tight and hooked up, put gas back in it, and if you haven't already, put the fuel pump relay back in. This you can do as soon as the car dies, and is completely optional if the car won't run at all. You are now ready to start it up, but turn the ignition on to the run position, wait a few seconds for the pump to pressurize, and then start it. Have fun, and feel free to ask any questions should you have any.

SOURCE: do fuel pumps usually go out in 2001 cavaliers

Yes! Never run a car low in fuel! Now you will need to replace the fuel pump as well as the filter. But you can 'bump-start' the car by pouring a bit of gas down the intake. Do Not make this a cure!!

Where is the emergence shut off switch to reset fuel pump on 1996 chev cavalier 2.2


Hello,
To answer your question there is no inertia switch. So your only options are the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump itself or bad wiring. I would start by turning the key to on and see if the relay clicks. If it does then more than likely you have a bad fuel pump

Where is the fel filter located on a 4 dr cavalier..do u have to replace the relay if( because of plugged fuel filter) it shut off to the fuel pump...thanks


The fuel filter is Under vehicle, center, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on chassis.
I haven't had a filter so clogged that it shut off the pump. Relays should re-set themselfs. If changing the filter doesn't clear the problem, then I would start looking at the pump itself.

2001 cavalier wont start cranks but wont catch then it caught one or two times then shut right off has plenty of gas


More than likely a bad fuel pump. Take a rubber mallet and take a few upward strikes on the center of the gas tank (infront of rear tires in center of car). You should be able to reach from reach without raising car. Than try starting. If it fires and runs a few seconds where it wouldn't fire before striking the tank. You need to replace the fuel pump.

03 cavalier starts then dies


Generally when this happens all the time the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Upon starting any GM car up the fuel pump operates off the third wire on the oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure reaches operating pressure which happens in a few seconds the computer shuts off the current from the oil pressure sending unit and opens the circiut flow to the fuel pump relay. The relay will run ythe fuel pump until you shut the engine off. Replace the fuel pump relay and you shall have a good running car again
