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.

98 cavalier z24 check engine light and ETS light comes on. What is this?


The ETS light is the warning light for the Electronic Traction Control. Check Engine light indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Take the vehicle to Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, O'Reilles, or Pep Boys and have the ECU scanned to see what codes comes up. The code will tell your what part is being effected.

97 cavalier z24. check engine light and ETS Light comes on after I exit the expressway. Mechanics say it's a throttle position sensor / Low voltage code P0122. Or could it be something else ? They are...


yes you should. my brother had this same problem a few months ago. and his cavalier would randomly shut off on him when it wanted to. it can get dangerous if ignored. he ended up replacing the tps (throttle sensor) and the o2 sensor and it started running decently

Check for vacuum leaks. Spray some carb cleaner or WD40 around the intake manifold, trottle body and any vacuum lines. Check for loose connections on engine wiring harness (Maybe you disconnected a sensor, and forgot to re-attach it?).
