1991 Chevy Cavalier 3.1 Won't Fire Needing Help

I have a 1991 Chevy Cavalier 3.1 V-6 engine I replaced the pick up module and crank sensor and still won't fire.

I checked the ECM fuse and it's good, so what else could be wrong?

Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

91 chevy cav z24 5 spd will not start @ times sounds like no fire other times sounds like no fuel.Replaced fuel pump,timing chain, crankshaft sensor,oil sensor,map sensor,body throttle accel sensor.st


Pull the air cleaner off and crank the engine. If puffs of air come come out of the throttle body when cranking the engine then the timing is not set correctly. Otherwise, after cranking pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with fuel and if so this indicates an ignition problem (coil, distributor/cap/rotor or faulty ECU).

Where is the crank sensor located on my 1997 chevy cavalier


That sensor is located on the Passenger side, back area connected to the engine, underneath the intake manifold. You may have to disconnect a few things to get to it

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.

No gas, no spark, 1991 chevy cavalier 2.2l 4cyl


This is an all too common problem with the Cavalier and other GM J-body cars. Usually it is because of the crankshaft position sensor or the harness going between it and the DIS (aka ignition module). Without the DIS seeing a signal from the crank sensor, it doesn't know when to trigger fuel and spark.

Sometimes this can also be caused by a faulty ignition switch. The switch will allow you to "crank" the car, but it doesn't make the proper connections for the ignition system, so the car never actually runs.

The previously indicated oil pressure switch could also be causing the problem, but if you hear your fuel pump run then it's OK.

Hopefully this helps. If not, your Cavalier is as messed up as mine and probably not worth fixing.

2002 cavalier 2.2l turns over but will not fire


Did you try changing the fuel pump? I would try a local salvage yard for parts. They will be much cheaper. As you no if no gas its not going to fire.
Good luck and its really nice of you for helping her. I hope things work out for her..!

The ignition modulator may have to be replaced, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and it's still pretty expensive so you may want to try the Salvage yards. The ignition modulator's are common interchangeable part for the GM line so you can get one from a newer car then your 89 cavalier. Good luck and hope this helps. I believe Auto Zone can also test the ignition modulator too, the modulator is what the coils sit on.
