What did you check as far as timing chain etc goes? Did you confirm all sprockets are aligned properly & crank, cams etc turning as they should?

My 99 2.2 SOH cavalier....she gets spark and fire but won"t start. Even though this is a no-no, won"t start with ether either, gets compression, plenty< crank sensor puts out 8 volts......no chip in...


I am leaning to timing belt problem if the belt broke and the valve is closed on that cly you would have compression there. If the ecm was the cause you would not have spark.

Fan belt broke 2003 cavalier drove it another 10 miles and than it stopped. will i have to reset the timing when i replace the belt.


That will depend on why it stopped. If the engine seized because it overheated then your are going to have to do more than replace that timing belt. If it just shut down but still starts now that it is cooled down then no unless you timing belt broke. If it cranks but doesn't start now you have damaged something else in the engine when it over heated. Yo can do a compression check to see if your timing belt is broken.

Starting problem


back to basics, does the engine turn over, if so check spark(in line tester works best) fuel pressure(with a guage) injector signal(noid light), then go on to compression,
