If its starting your getting power to pump but is pump delivering enough fuel also did you install new filter in correct flow direction would start with fuel pressure test also if you have access to a scan tool plug into the cars computer and see if any codes are present

    All fuses and relays are good. I drove the car with very little gas for over a week then filled it up and it quit. Fuel filter is new and properly installed could a gas treatment fix it?

    driving with very little gas actually overheats the fuel pump keeping the pump submerged in fuel keeps them cool

Assuming you have enough fuel, I would check the fuse on the fuel pump.It is possible that the fuel pump has failed. As the car is 10 years old this might have happened.

Sounds like either a clogged fuel filter, or a problem with the fuel pump. The filter should be on the drivers side under the cab, and the pump is inside the tank.

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

It's hard to figure out whats going on with out any codes. Im thinking maybe the fuel pump. To check it after it stops and doe'snt start squirt some starting fluid into the carb and see if it wants to start. If it trys to start then it's a fuel problem.
