The 5 things required to start a car are : spark , fuel , compression, timing and rotation of the crankshaft. if you have all of these , look to the crank position sensor.

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.

Spark plugs


The spark plugs on the cavalier are under the 2.2 ecotec panel located on the top of the engine. There are no spark plug wires to deal with. The electronic coil pack directly attaches to the plugs with rubber seats like in a spark plug end. Then you use a deep socket ratchet to get the plugs out. Use anti-seize compound when replacing the plugs.

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start


Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.

I have a 1997 chevy cavalier.it has good spark and is getting fuel but wont fire up or even sputter.theft light is on and is steady.


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).

Wontstart


If the fuel pump is working, fuel should be reaching the motor. Otherwise, you need to check the fuel pressure regulator. Depending on the location, if it is before the motor and the regulator is bad, then the fuel wont pass through.
Did you check for spark from the wires? My experience with Chevy Cavaliers is usually electrical but not fuel related.
