05 cavalier won't start

I have a 2005 chevy cavalier that won't start. it makes a sound like it wants to turn over but it won't. The only belt that i can see works fine, and I checked the fuses. when you turn the key and then let it go there is a whirling sound that comes from the engine, but I don't know what it is. What next??

    If you stick your head under the back of the car and then turn the key on can you hear the fuel pump kicking on? Thanks

I had that same exact problem ... I was driving on the highway
and all of the sudden, the car lost power - I knew it was not
the battery / alternator because all of the electrical components
worked.

I pulled over and tried restarting and it seemed to not get any
fuel...

98 chevy cavalier turns over but won't start


i know industry jargon can be confusing, but lets try this. if it turns over but won't start, it could be your ''ignition module'' that sits on top of the vave cover on the motor or it might be the fuel pump or filter. make sure when you crank the engine that the key is all the way turned or it may not always make a proper contact to activate the ignition module. iv'e seen this before & had to change the ignition switch & all worked ok after that. i would need to know engine lt size to give you more details on the matter. please get back to me.

Yes its a big fault if the timing belt breaks whilst the engine is running you could need a few new valves and possibly a new piston or two as well

You would need to check to make sure you have spark coming from the coil. Make sure you have fuel spraying from the fuel pressure valve. Make sure the distributor cap is not damaged and you have the correct timing set for the spark plugs, consult owners manual.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


This is most likely not a speed sensor problem, I see this a lot on 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters and it's always the same. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - cavalier speedometer fix
