First check fuel pressure before the fuel filter, then check the fuel pressure after the fuel filter, these filters are also the fuel regulator, if it is clogged then it will route the fuel back to the tank, fuel filter is around $60 for that car.
Good luck

Cranks no start


There is a lot of types of starting fluid. Some is kind of safe....kind of!! Most will destroy your engine!! If you are using starting fluid on a Saturn, you really need to stop. Your fuel pressure could be incorrect. The fuel pump relay could be bad, or a fuse. Your fuel pump may be going out. Listen to your fuel pump when you turn the key to the "run" position before turning the starter over. You shoulh hear a 2 second buzz from the fuel pump. If you don't hear this , you have a fuel pump issue.

Does a chevy cavalier 2.0 fuel pump put out same pressure as 1998 dodge neon 2.0 dohc?


if its a racing fuel pump than it will have more BUT that will do you no good if you dont have racing fuel injectors, fuel rail, bigger intake manifold, bigger throtle body, and your mapping tuned in with a flashable pcm$$$$$$$$$$$$. stock fuel programing will let it run stock no matter how much pressor your fuel pump puts out. fuel injectors are solenoids that the pcm opens and closes they dont stay open. BUT IT WILL WORK

My cheve wont crank and start well it will crank but it wont turn over and run so i can drive it it just cranks and keeps on trying but it never goes threw can anyone help me it is a 98 Chevrolet s10...


Start out by spraying a small amount of starting ether down the air cleaner. If it cranks and runs for just a few seconds at least, you probably have a fuel problem. Turn the key to "On" and listen: Do you hear a whirring noise, the fuel pump kicking in? If you do, then you need to replace your fuel filter. If not, you may have to replace the fuel pump. If the engine does not start up after the ether, you might check the distributor, make sure all the wires are plugged in. If they are, The coil may have failed.

I have 1998 saturn sl 2 car starts after 5 or 6


Spray ether into the air intake and see if it still takes 5 or 6 cranks...if it starts immediately, it is fuel related, perhaps fuel presure regulator is bad. If the ether doesn't change anything...it is most likely a cam sensor...good luck!

Engine cranks but will not start. No link to PCM


Spray Ether in the air intake...if it doesn't start then, I would suspect the timing chain.

1998 GMC JIMMY won't start, fuel pump not humming, below zero


The Fuel Pump is Inside the Tank and you have a Relay in the Fuse Distribution Block under the Hood for the Fuel Pump. Try these first and let me Know what you get!
