Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

2002 Chevy Cavelier won't start

My car wouldn't start last week and I had it towed. the mechanic went out next morning and it started. He checked everything over and could find anything wrong. today I was driving and the car started coughing about a mile later it died out as I was going up hill. The battery works but doesn't seem to get gas. I am waiting for mechanic to look at it tomorrow. The car has 86000 miles I am wondering if I should look into a new car or if anyone knows what could be wrong with it

It sounds a lot like mine, after doing some searching online I've come to the conclusion that it's the fuel pump.  This seems to be a recurrent problem with the Cavalier and Chevy is NOT offering a free fix.  You have to drop the fuel tank in order to replace the pump as it is located inside the tank.  The price of a new fuel pump varies as does the amount of time (quoted by various people) to complete the job.  Good Luck.

Hi,
You have a 'short circuit' in the system or a bad ground somewhere. Go online and search on the Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler forums for this issue. I've read about myself but don't recall the common cause.

We have a 2002 Ford Escape, 3.0. Sometimes after driving it you can stop and turn it off but it won't start. After it has been parked for sometime, 3 hours or more it will start. Sometimes it will


I would try running it in the driveway for 10 or 15 min and see if the problem occurs. If you can duplicate the problem you can try to troubleshoot it.
When it will not start you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure problem. It could be a relay, or a crank sensor, or the fuel pump in the tank. I would expect to find something in the engine compartment that is getting hot and stops working.
I assume the check engine light is not on.

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.
