Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

My daughter's car won't start mornings

It sounds like battery but she keeps insisting that is the fuel pump, and I don't think it is that the problem.

    it just don't start, but as soon that car is jumped, goes everywhere until next day that you need to start it again. It is like doesn't get not charge at night. She lives in Washinton state so it is very cold right now too.

    This is Either the Alternator or the Starter. I would Start with the Starter First.

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

You can check for power at the pump relay, or jumper it to make the pump run.

Have a 2002 ford Windstar just changed alternator and battery. Light on blinkers keep flashing and car won't turn over I put 5 gal. Gass in soi know it has fuel but it sounds like it don't have any


was it running before you replaced the alternator and battery or did it not run,and you thought that the battery and alternator was the cause of it not running. if a motor cranks and not start the battery and alternator are good. you need to check to see if the fuel pump is working and if you have spark

Hey guys, my caravan started this morning then shut off and won't start again. Heres what I did so far checked fuel pump fuse good, fuel pump relay good swapped with other. Removed neg battery cab


If you have voltage at the fuse and relay, and at the pump, but no fuel pressure, I would say the pump has died or the tank is empty.
Have you checked for voltage at the pump yet ?

Fuel pump fixed, turns over but still won't start


I don't know much about these but on my daughters 1.0i polo I had to reset the throttle with a computer after disconnecting the battery for a while.
If you are sure you have a spark and fuel getting to the plugs then the fault will lie with timing and fuel mixture.

Starting problem think it is fuel filter but not sure have blown filter out twice but problem keeps occuring would it be the pump? once it starts it runs well. Its a mitsubishi triton dual cab ute mk 2003...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Listen to hear if you can hear the fuel pump kicking on when you first turn the key. You should hear a humming sound for a second or two. If you do, it is working, If not, it is not working. If so, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and shut off button if you have one. It could also be bad fuel injectors. You can pour fuel into the intake, if it starts, you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't, it shouldn't be fuel related then. If these all check out, if you don't have inside power, it is a connection problem with the battery or a bad battery. If you have power and there is a clicking sound, clean the battery terminals and post, check the connection. Make sure the battery is good. If you turn the key and there is nothing, you have a bad starter or starter solenoid. Check your ignition fuse also. If the starter is not getting the correct amount of power from the battery, it won't start. Make sure the alternator isn't draining the battery as well.

My jeep won;t start but wil turn over like normal, also the fuel gauge does not work or the battery gauge and all were working when i park it . came out in the morning to go to work and nothing worked


Hi, it sounds like you dont have any power to the fuel pump or the sending unit, turn the key to the "on" or run position and listen to see if you hear a humming noise. if you do not this means the fuel pump is not working, first check the fuses for the fuel pump. this should be under the hood in the fuse compartment. the battery guage doesnt work because the car is not running and charging the battery and will go up when the car starts. If the fuse is not blown you may have to replace the fuel pump.

F150 fuel pump replacement


You could have rust in your gas tank, what will happen if that is the case is crank and run and when the rust gets stirred up it will clog your pump and filter. After a while it will kill your pump, and ruin your filter, and cause it not to crank at all. I would drain the tank and look at the fuel as it comes out if it has any red in it that is your problem. I had the same problem and that sounds just like my problem. I hope that helps you out.
