Try manually locking the car (with the key), on the Driver's side. Then wait about a minute, for the security system to reset and unlock it (again Driver's side with key).

Cavalier sputters


  • What was the reason for changing the plugs,wires,fuel filter and fuel pump ?
  • Was it running good before ?
  • Could be crossed spark plug wires, check to see if they are going to the right plugs
  • Check to see if fuel filter is on the right way
  • Check to see what your fuel pressure is and if it's within specs

1998 cavalier wont start no spark


If you have no spark try the ignition module, it controls the spark and if you don't have any and the coil is new its the only other option short of wiring or ecu!!

I changed engines from a 1996 chevy cavalier to a 1997 cavalier,i don't get any gas or fire won't start


These cars were made with an anti theft security system. If you swapped motors, you may have interupted that system causing the the security to turn off the ijector fuel. Just a thought.

99 chevy cavalier theft system light on steady, car wont crank.


My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!

1997 Chevy Malibu will start and then sputter.


It sounds like your engine is not getting a proper spark because of bad plugs. Check your spark plugs. To be safe install new ones anyway. I prefer NGK plugs.

My 1997 chevy cavalier wont start.its getting spark and fuel.but wont fire it has a 2.2 ecotec.


Sounds like cam belt has snapped. If it broke while starting, could be cheap fix...new belt. Worst case: cylinder head off for overhaul...bent valves / pistons replaced.
