2004 chevy cavalier wouldnt start replaced fuel pump, filter, checked fuse and relay . Started up drove about 20 miles then went out to start it and wont start fuel pump not pressurizeing

Check your O2 sensors. They will give that affect and work only when your engine heats up. If the car cools down and starts up again, that is a sign that your O2 sensors are shot. Replace them.

Have 1996 chevy Silverado 4.3 Service Engine Soon Light Stays on took to Autozone & the reader said replace O2 Sensor

A P0147 is caused by a failure in the O2 sensor heater circuit. The heater circuit is used to allow a more accurate reading (for O2 sensor) while system is below normal operating temperature. The only way to properly fix this problem is to replace the O2 sensor, however you can clear the code and it may be a few days before it comes back [and sets check engine light]. This condition is somewhat common on GM vehicles of that age.

What motor will work in 1995 chevy cavalier

2.2 and 2.3 from a cavalier or sunfire.1996 the 2.4 was available and the 1.8 and 2.0 were used around 1990.You need the correct computer for each motor(eprom chip),they don't interchange.Not to mention the wiring harnesses probably won't interchange either.But they all will bolt up to your transmission.Sounds like alot of work,take care now.

1996 chevy cavalier with a 2.2l engine and you have been getting lean system readings from the obd fuel pump is fine new fuel filter and fuel lines seem fine no leaks what could be the problem?

Check the condition of the O2 sensors in the exhaust system. If the car has a lot of miles, those sensors become worn and don't sense proper fuel mixture.

What does the low traffic light mean in a 1998 chevy cavalier?

If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.
