I would check the coil packs, usually on these four cylinders there is two packs, look for cracks in them or for loss of spark.

SOURCE: cavalier dies

you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.

SOURCE: 91 Chevy K2500 5.7 engine will crank but not start.

If you have a electric distributor there will be a spark module in side of it. you need to change that. it comes with silicon that must be put on the bottom of it before you put it on. Also I would make sure that your timing is OK. Pull your #1 plug wire off and put your finger over the hole and turn it over, just bump it in tell the piston comes up. you will feel air on your finger. bring that piston all the way to the top. I use a long screwdriver(turn the engine by hand) then check and see if the marks on the timing cover line up. If it does than change that module.

SOURCE: '97 chevy cavalier won't start

Since there are no carburetor the fuel injection nozzles have holes which are about the size of a human hair, its imperative that these nozzles are cleaned properly and that can be done by a trained technician of any service center.............sodeep

I got a 1996 chevy cavalier bought new battery and alternator but when u take the jump box off it dies its acting like its not charging battery lights on and dies immediately.


Make dure you installed the alternator cortectly. If do, you were probably sold a bad alternator. Take the alternator to the parts store you bought it at. The will.test it and refund your money, or replace it.

I think my timing chain jumped time my truck died going down the road kinda like it bogged down then just stopped running and it wont start back when u try to start it it will turn over for couple seconds...


well first off you need to start by checking the compression on all 8 cylinders!!!! to rule out internal engine failure as oppose to jumped timing. its very rare that timing chains will jump especially a double roller chain. get a compression gauge take the plugs out and get a reading on all the cylinders. you should be no more then 10-20psi difference from cylinder to cylinder. but on the chevy motors if there is a problem they usually show well on a compression test! good luck post back up the results then we can go from there.

The newer cars will sometimes shut themselves off if the catalayic converter gets clogged. You might want to check that first or even your fuel filter, inside the tank and outside. Hope this helps. My brother had a cavalier that did the same thing when his in tank fuel filter was clogged, and I had a car that did the same thing when my catalayic converter clogged. Hope this helps.

Starter kick back


If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !
