1999 cavalier 2.2 liter thats driving me nuts...

99 cavalier 2.2liter over heated & blew head..took head that was true off of a scrap car with rear end damage...replaced.fuel pump was getting power but not priming...replaced lots of pressure & fuel pumping to spark all cylinders..buddy screwed up firing sequence but we caught damage done.the head seems bolts all torqued correctly.then if im correct my buddy reversed harness to #1 & #2 fuel injector...we shot starting fluid down throttle body it gave a nasty backfire...I think this maybe caused it to jump timing?I also have a mystery vaccuum line i cant seem to figure out where it belongs....I dunno.Is the injector harness mix up even part of this mess?could it cause car to not turn over or cause the timing to jump?The firing order is correct...none of the lifters or rods are damaged...gimme a clue.

SOURCE: Fuel Problem

fuel pressure regulator? This diverts excess pressure from the rail back to the tank. When they wear out they usually stay stuck open thus diverting all pressure back to the tank. Pressure tests do not reveal this as pressure is checked before the rail not in it. I do believe you have a bad fuel regulator. They are 75US ouch.

SOURCE: fuel but no start

Sounds like the problem might be in the relay but before replacing that relay, check all fuses and especially any ecm fuses. Do you have a check engine light come on when you turn the key to the on position?I believe that on this vehicle there is a relay that is labeled "eec relay" this is the relay for the power to the ecm. eec stands for "electronic engine control" If this circuit is dead the fuel pump relay will not come on either, but worse than that the ecm stays dead and the injectors are not delivering the fuel to the engine even when you jump the fuel pump manually.
Check these items and make sure that the computer is getting power and I think you problem will be found.

There is a black wire with a connector like thing in it near the battery cable on the negative post make sure that this connection is good ,it is the ecm ground and the same symptoms will happen if it is not connected well.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

I recently had over heating problems in my 98 cavalier 2'2 liter. witch was because my heater core went out. But I kept driving it, so I blew my head gasket.I replaced hear gasket And heater core. Now its...

run fault codes and check for mechanical problems . If you did not have the head machined before replacing the gasket then have a compression test done as you may still have a compression / gasket problem

Rumbling & grinding under front end

Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air

More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.

I have 1996 mitsubishi pajero 2.8TD, it over heated blew head gasket & blew hole in radiator,had it fixed put new cylinder head & radiator on it, its only bin done for couple of weeks,not sure if...

are you sure you had installed the correct gasket? did you compare it with the old gasket that you took off? I suspect that you got the wrong gasket and blocked up the holes between cylinder head and engine block thats why the coolant are not circulating thus creating an excessive heat
