SOURCE: 97 CAVALIER (Z24) FAILED SMOG TEST

No, the water pump leak would not cause it to fail the smog test. The only way that could have any bearing on the test results, would be if you lost a lot of coolant, and the car was overheating, then maybe it would have something to do with failing. What were the results (specific #;s and exactly what failed?) Is the check engine light on?

I have a 88 Z24 Cavalier that when you start it it will start and die like its not getting fuel. we have checked the injectors the spark plugs and the injector wires everything works perfectly fine bu


on older models we had a procedure as follows.
hook up a remote starter switch turn key to on position and crank.
if there is no attempt to start or fire then the problem is in the electrical wiring. won't run in ignition on but will run in ignition start position.
They used to use fusible links that blew when they got old.
hope this helps.

My 88 cavalier z24 starts to run rough as it warms up it is throwing ecm code 43. what is esc and how do you fix low voltage to it


Electronic Spark Control runs a self check and it failed the check. You need to replace the HEI module inside the distributor, check all the wires and connectors for rust and clean as needed.

88 chevy cavalier only starts when i poor gas in the throttle body then it runs fine


Sounds like you have one of two problems. either a clogged fuel filter( the easy one), or a fuel pump problem. The fuel pump problem could be as simple as a blown fuse, bad wire connection, or it could be a bad pump. Hope this helps.

88 cavalier has no spark


check the throttle position sensor,it may be stuck and it wont start unless its all the way back.Almost like trying to start it with the gas pedal down-which it will crank and crank but it wont start.

88 cavalier has no spark


you need to start somewhere. get hold of a scanner and see if car has a crank signal. the crank signal supplies refrence for both base for ignition and injection pulse. if it has injector pulse and no spark, look at the ignition module/ coils but if has neither look at the crank sensor or harness to the module
