Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Car will not start. acts like it has no gas or spark.

Was driving my 2004 chevy cavalier, when it stopped running. There is battery power and gas in the tank. It will not fire. I tried to get a code from the car and the only thing that came up was p0445 for the emissions system.

    The car now fires occasionally, but only runs for a few seconds then dies. Very hard to get it to restart.

First you need to put a little fuel in the air cleaner and see if it will start .. or use either to see if this problem is fuel.. sounds like the fuel pump might be giving out .. this is where I would start and let me know if it runs .. thanks Jerry

2004 chevy cavalier not starting after changing battery


When taking battery cables loose, I try to use memory saver. Hoping there won't be any problems on start-up? Are you saying the starter motor cranks good, but, won't start? If so, have helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs--check proper fuel pressure--check fuel injector pulse. If the starter motor won't even crank, then have to check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Any starter testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.

My 2004 chevy cavalier ran out of gas and now won't start back up


Sometimes it takes awhile to prime itself trying again never hurt. the other thing that is possible is that the tank bottom had contaminates in it which were sucked up into the line when it was so low. these can get caught anywhere in the fuel line. I would get a new fuel filter(good to change anyways) the debris or contaminates would likely get trapped there where it is suppose too. it could have stopped it up. if you dont have the 10 -20 bucks for a new filter you can still pull it and try to free the debris by rinsing it with gas the opposite way and reuse. worse case scenario you may need a new fuel pump.. could have burned it up. it happens.. or the debris was large enough to stop it up. either way it sucks because replacing them are never fun. good luck

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

My 2004 Chevy Cavalier became sluggish and acted like it had no power or gas there is gas in the car. She wants to turn over but wont could it be my fuel pump? or is there a fuel pump reset...


Inertia Fuel Shut Off Switch --- is only on Ford Products

Turning over & Cranking is the same thing

Starting or Running is as you know it

So tell us in more detail

You can not guess at wether you have fuel pressure
or a bad pump
