2001 Chevy cavalier wont start

Car ran great, just returned from 5 hour trip, the follow day the started but staalled and died out after a short trip to the market and now it doesn't start. Fuses are ok, cranks strong but seems to be starving for fuel. How do I check if fuel is being delivered or what other problem is creating this issue? All suggestiion will appreciated,

Thank you,

    Exact same problem. Drove the car to work just fine. When I went to leave work is started and died seconds later. Now it cranks but won't start. Fuel pump runs. I changed the fuel filter, no help.

Chevy 2001 Cavalier won't start


Trace the power source from fuse to relay etc and make sure pump is working. if all checks out then check pump working and for preasue at engine. you may have a dammaged fuel line from the tank which would also cause the same problem

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good


To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

2000 Chevy Cavalier. Fuel Pump gone bad?


If you are not a handy person this job could be very difficult. Most of these fuel pumps are in the gas tank. If you can remove the fuel line somewhere in the engine compartment & turn on the key you will be able to see if the pump is working properly.It's about a $500.00 repair.

The best thing is to take it to a parts store and have them check the codes. Im sure the check engine lite is on.But sounds like it might be choking itself to much.

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
