Could very well be. Not uncommon on this model.If it is you will most likely have to have a heli-coil installed in head .

Replaced head gasket now there's no spark,


Does anything work? It sounds like you have a flat battery which has gone flat due to the time it took you to change the head gasket.

No spark. No power to ignition system, disconnected wires to coils, disconnected or incorrectly seated spark plug leads, distributor cap off or not seated properly.

Motor not turning over. Flat battery, blown fuse, faulty start solenoid, faulty starter motor.

I have a 97 chevy cavalier and its running ruff blowing the muffler off and the spark plugs out I put a new fuel filter


If it is blowing the spark plugs out are the threads stripped? Sounds as if you may have the plug wires connected to the wrong plugs. Check firing order.

I have a 1997 chevy 1500 cheyenne was running rough then died wouldnt start had it towed fuel came out of the muffler when it was at an angle on the tow truck


Sounds like the spark plugs are not firing to burn the fuel. Check to make sure all spark plugs and wires are in good condition (not torn or have a bunch of "white stuff" the white stuff is from the plug wires grounding out on something metal and not delivering the electrical signal to the spark plug.
Then follow the plug wires to the distributor and ensure all is clean and in good shape. You can also unlatch the distributor cap and clean the 8 metal contacts inside the cap.
If it will start a easy thing to check is your timing. Need a timing light but if it is a 5.7L GM 350 small block I believe timing is 8 degrees from TDC (Top Dead Center)
Good Luck

How to find out if loud knocking is piston or thrown rod, plus battery will not stay charged. This all happened after backfire and blown muffler


The only way to determine what it is would be to remove the sump from the motor, Either way you need another motor as the cost to repair will be greater than the cost to replace.

Difficult to start up sounds sluggish, once shut off, won't start, coil was hot (coil recently replaced). Needs new muffler.


Replace spark plugs with new ones. put new muffler in. The muffler has an affect on the way engine runs. (back pressure) is needed. At this age you may need a head gasket(s). Compression check on all cylinders. The list goes on... Good luck

Started vehicle-loud bang & started sounding like no muffler-pinpoint to exhaust manifold area. Also when running-there is a spark shooting out-like from spark plug-and sounds like it's misfiring.


you shouldn't have sparks shooting out at anything,, so change that plug wire ,, ( recommend the whole set) the spark that should be going to the plug to fire and burn that fuel isn't happening,, so that cylinder is backfiring,, and it will "guppy" your muffler if it hasn't already, ( Guppy is expand it , so it looks like a Guppy stomach) do not run this motor until that spark problem is fixed,, It could cost you 10 times the price of a set of Plug wires Good luck

Engine shakes alot and muffler sounds rough and shakes alot


i would have it looked at. sounds like a blown head gasket. if so be careful when you start it. bump it a couple of times and see if it feels like it doesnt want to turn over. if you try to start it and the gaskets have leaked onto the piston it can blow the motor up.
