SOURCE: 1996 cavalier will not crank

when it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.

It could be the pigtail {harness} that plugs into the crank sensor.

SOURCE: 97 Avenger will not start!

your coil could have gone out, you could need a new distributor, and your fuel pump could be out. but one thing is the fuses and relays check those as well. there is a relay and fuse for almost anything and that would explain why it all of the sudden happened.

84 Chevy cleberty after it sits for a day it will not crank unless I put some gas in the Tb thin it cranks and runs fine it has fire and fuel injector is spraying

Check valve inside fuel pump is bad , need new fuel pump . The check valve is suppose to keep pressure in fuel lines . Try turning the ignition on - off a few times ,to build up pressure . The PCM/ECM engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds when key is turned on to prime the fuel system .

94 jimmy will crank, runs good when cranked but when you turn it off won't crank til you let it sit or the next day. I can hear the fuel pump come on. The rotor button on the distributor is not po

Concentrate on the starting circuit: from the ignition switch to the neutral safety switch to the starter relay to the starter solenoid on the starter. If it won't crank, one of these parts or the wiring associated is not working right. Quite often the electrical contacts in the starter solenoid become pitted, slightly burned maybe, and lose contact. If you have power on the solenoid wire when key is held in crank and starter won't operate, the solenoid is the problem.

94 4.0 dies while driving will start after sitting a while

Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

I have a 94 c1500 suburban It shuts down only on really hot days and will restart after a long period of time .Changed relay no help pump is only 2yrs old acts like its got a thermal cut off switch ?

Sounds like vapor lock. Next time it does it go to your fuel pressuer regulator and prees on the test valve to see if any air comes out. Next crank the engine and press the same for for just long enough to see if gas comes out. Your may have a bad regulator.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

Old gas turns to varnish which can cause the valves to seize in the valve guide,bend push rods or even bend the valves themselves.NEVER put old gas in an internal combustion engine.
