Change gas pump on 04 cavalier

I am not getting any gas up to the engine. I changed the gas filter and still nothing. When I give a shot of carb cleaner to the intake it kicks over. I checked the fuses and they are OK. I think I need to change gas pump. How long do you think it would take a person that is mechanically inclined to do this job and how hard of a job is it? Also do you have any other Ideas of what my problem might be?

2 hours in proper shop if you have all tools it took me about 6 in a gravel parking lot in the winter with 3/4 of gas still in the tank first you must drop your exhaust from halfway to the end of your car then you must punch out the rivets to drop your heat shield then undo the two straps holding the tank in.straight forward from there. i think theres also a screw or two securing the tubing your gas goes down to enter tank (torx) screws. i hope this helps if you havent already done it.and replaceing heat shield rivets i went to crappy tire and got some big headed short phillips screws couldnt tighten to much or theyd spin right around maybe youll find something better.

It should take you about 4 hours at the most, you'll need a jack for the tank,and you'll need quick disconect tools for the fuel lines. Pump comes out of the tank rather easily. DO NOT USE AN ELETRIC DROP LIGHT WHILE DOING THIS. The risk of spark is great. If you've check the relay, and its ok than you need a fuel pump.

My 2001 cavalier won't start tho the battery is new; it acts like it's not getting fuel even tho it has half a tank


Disconnect the fuel line off the carb then turn the starter over. There should be gas shoot out. If not your fuel pump may be shot. have you ever changed the fuel filter? If its plugged it will not work.

Heeeelp! turns over but wont start. changed gas filter,cap,rotor.


Are you sure it is getting spark to the plugs? Did you check fuel pressure? It still may be getting some fuel but not enough. Is it fuel injected or car berated?

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.

My Chevy Cavalier just stopped running all of a sudden


turn the key on, while having a buddy with the gas cap off listen for the fuel pump. If the fuel pump doesnt turn on than thats the problem. Try changing the relay first, if it were me I would bypass it first just to make sure. good luck

2000 chevy cavalier shut off while driving on the freeway , got it to start again drove home now engine turns over but wont start .


oh ok this is simple u need to put a new fuel filter on there it has a bad fuel filter on there try that out if not it is the fuel pump but try the fuel filter after that and the fuel pump if it still has a problem it is the gauge and try to put mid grade cause it causes less break downs for your car cause it doesnt mess up ur fuel filter

2004 cavalier stalled on highway wont start


DEFINITELY change the filter...It's only about ten times past its useful life. Then check fuel pump, pump relay and fuse. (doubt if you'll have to!!)

Where is fuel filter at on 04 chevy cavalier


I just changed one today (5/28/05) on a 2002 cavalier. A few feet from the end of the car, located in the middle (basically right after the trunk). To change it is pretty easy if you take the plastic clips sort of off (this gave me LOTS of trouble but now I can take off this end in 2 seconds). Just pinch the plastic clip (green on my car) & then push the platic clip almost out. Then pull that side out (watch out - you will have gas come out). Then unscrew the other side. I had to take off another part to unscrew this side because of little room. Also - BEFORE you start - take off the gas cap, jackstand the car & I also removed the fuel pump fuse (located in the engine, driver side).
