Car wont start


Try a little starting fluid in the intake and see if it runs a few seconds. If it does, it could be low fuel pressure or an injector problem. Maybe they aren't pulsing.
You have voltage to the injectors; now check the ground circuit: Use a test light and clip the lead to the POSITIVE post of battery. Put the probe into the ground terminal on an injector connector, and have someone crank the car over. If the test light is blinking, the ground circuit is good. When it blinks, that is when the computer is grounding the circuit for injector pulse to occur.

Get a compression tester, remove all the spark plugs, unplug ignition module and injectors. Now screw in tester hose to cylinder #1, attach guage and crank engine for 3 seconds. Record reading on gauge and move to next cylinder. Repeat this on all cylinders. Compression should be around 90-100 psi and should not vary more than 20% between cylinders.

check the voltage at battery engine off, it should be at least 12.6 volts. with engine running should be 14.1 to 14.7, if running voltage is way lower then above. alt or the belt needs attention. if battery voltage when off is lower then 12 volts replace battery. good-day !

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.

1997 Cavalier Won't stay running


maybe you pinched a wire, damaged a sensor, check the maf, idle air control, disconnect the battery for a while maybe it will reset the computer. doing this erases engine light codes, or check the codes first before, you should led you to the problem.

Rough Idle - 1997 Cavalier RS 2.2L SFI-OHV 4-134


WEll it is possible it could be the idle air control. one the most comon problems is the fuel pressure regulator. To check it find the fuel rail the fuel regulator will have one vacuum hose on it remove the hose and check to see if it is wet with fuel if not have some one trun the key on or start the car if it leaks fuel out the regulator is bad. This would explain why its hard to start when it sits because it floods out the motor
