Question about 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier
Car would turn over, I could hear the fuel pump, I had lots of fuel but the car wouldn't start. I could not smell fuel as it should have been flooded for the many times I tried to get it going. Finally after an hour and a half it started. It then died half way home about 15 miles. Recentely the car would sputter only on this one particular hill on the way home. I have to go and get it tomorrow. It may start but obviously a problem here. I need it fixed it and don't have the funds to pay for advice. So Thank you to any one who can help.
If it has one other than the one in the tank on the fuel pump it will most likely be on the frame under the car.

I don't know litre size of engine? I looked at info for the 2.2L.
The picture, so you will know what is looks like. It should be under the vehicle towards the rear. A threaded fitting on one end, quick connect fitting on the other end.
Make sure no fuel pressure on the system before taking any fuel lines loose. Usually after the vehicle sits overnight w/o the key being cycled not much pressure, but, you need to be aware. Use a catch pan, gas will probably run out of fuel lines. If too much gas, plug the lines till you go back with new filter. Do it in the open air.
There safety issues working under a vehicle, safety is your responsibility

Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.

Ok then, from your description and the
make/model/year of the car you have there,
it appears you've reset the VATS.
The car's security immobilizer
reader at the key switch
does not recognize the coded
chip in the ignition key any longer.
You can try to put the key
in the ignition, turn to the on position &
wait at least 10 min like that.
(Do not turn off the key switch before
10 minutes as elapsed!)
Once done, the key is re-programmed and
should allow the fuel injectors to work again.
The car would start now if corrected.
In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM)
will re learn the code this way, and will then
allow the restart, however if this does not work,
then you can simply tow it to any GM vehicle dealer
to have the service department re code it.
There is a permanent solution though.
Adding the PLJX Self learning Bypass module (59.95)
will bypass the PASSLOCK system in your vehicle
for good. See this at www.PASSLOCK2.com
Good luck I hope method 1 does the trick!
Here is the 30 min relearn:
Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

well buddie, I apologize to say the same thing than the others but as I see your problem, let me tell you that really may be the problem and that would be the cheapest thing to try, because the most of the fuel pumps works even if the filter is really bad so I'd recomend you do that, just try it, when you take it off, blow in it, and if the air doesn't run, replace it would help a lot anyway... good luck!

SOURCE: 2004 cavalier died going down
If the buzzing sounds like chatter, its a fuel pump relay that is either not getting enough voltage, a loose
connection, or you may just need to replace the relay.sometimes these relays will be behind the dash,accessible, or within your fuse block area, on chevy trucks i have seen them behind the glove box.
