Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe
I turn it over and it wont start I think I smell gas so don't think its a fuel pump if anyone can help please do so.
If there is was no check engine light prior to the problem (which would normally indicate sensor problems), then I would suspect that the engine has jumped time. The 2.2L engines, although they have a timing chain and not a belt, had issues with the timing chain tensioner. This wars out, breaks, and allows the timing chain to jump across the gear teeth, putting the engine out of time. This will cause a no-start condition, and if bad enough, cause valve damage that will require the heads to be repaired. The easiest way to check for this problem is to perform a compression check of the cylinders. If the engine has jumped time, the compression in the cylinders will vary greatly from one cylinder to the next and will most likely be lower than normal.

dose it have an imobilser ?
you said you smelt burning from the dash but then it dont start ?
i suspect 3 things the imobilser is at fault or the igniton is at fault or the ecu could have blown an inturnal fues the first too are easyer to fix then the last .
all still may need to be looked at by the garage
hope this points you in the way you need to go

You will need to check the fuel pressure. You will have a connection on the fuel line to the motor under the hood. No fuel pressure indicates one of three problems. Fuse in fuse box, relay in relay box under the hood or fuel pump located in fuel tank.
