Sounds like you were looking at the solenoid. It is attached to the starter. It has the postive lead from the battery attached to it. It makes the starter engage and start the car. If it is faulty it may not engage and you just get a whinning noise. If it is not the solenoid/starter then you may have a flat spot on the flywheel.

Engine wont start


It sounds like the starter solenoid is bad which if I remember correctly my 1991 Cavalier had the solenoid on the starter.I suggest taking off the starter and having it tested.Most auto parts chains(Pep boys,Autozone)will test your starter for free.I this car is equiped with a seperate starter relay this may also be the problem

1995 Cavalier No Start, No Crank


hi philavanilla'

Do you hear any click when you turn the key to start? If you don't that means your starter solenoid is not being energized and therefore no complete circuit for the starter motor.
If you hear a click but no cranking then the starter motor is probably NG. The best thing you can do to verify exactly what is wrong is to remove the starter, (the solenoid is mounted on the starter) and take it to a place like Auto Zone where they can check out the operation of solenoid and/or starter.
Be sure you disconnect the ground lead (that's the negative lead that connects to the frame/engine) before you attempt to remove the starter.


Hope this helps Good luck Loringh Ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks
