    I already checked the fuses and relays, and no sound was heard from the pump when key was turned on. Vehicle starts and runs for a moment on starting fluid only. Can the actual pump be tested before dropping the tank?

Be sure and check all fuses inside and under hood also, there are fuel pump relays.........yopu should hear the fuel pump when the key is turned toward start....do not start engine if you hear a grinding or vibration noise the fuel pump is working

Stopped running when I put on the gas. Now it will turn over but wont start


Could be low fuel pressure and now no pressure. Fuel pump could be bad. Need to check fuel pressure. We use a trick to test it sometimes .While someone cranks over the engine , with a hammer firmly TAP bottom center of fuel tank, it jars pump and might start,does not fix it but lets you know if it is bad.

How do you install the fuel pump on a 2003 chevrolet cavalier with a 2.2 engine


after you take the fuel tank out, its pretty easy. its really not a job you should do unless you have a lift for the car. be sure to replace the filter also.

My 2003 Chevy cavalier was running fine this morning and now it wont start. I am thinking the fuel pump has went out on it but I have pulled the relay from the AC and swithed them around but still nothing....


With a test light probe...Check for voltage signal at the fuel tank harness connector unplugged and probing the connector cavity.Key ON/no start cycle will power the pink/blackwire for 3 seconds (10 secs apart) each attempt. If the test probe illuminates each key cycle,it gives you an accurate diagnostic for your symptom and you can proceed with fuel pump replacement knowing it is the failed part.

My 2004 cavalier turns over but won't start


HI. IF YOU CAN DROP THE TANK YOURSELF YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIX IT YOURSELF. THE FRIST THNG YOU DO IS CHECK THE WIRING, IT MAY BE A GROUND WIRE. I'VE ALSO SEEN THE PUMP WORK IF YOU GIVE IT A TAP ON THE TANK.ONCE YOU GET THE TANK DOWN (NOW ONLY DROP THE TANK DOWN A LITTLE BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO BRAKE ANYTHING. THEN GET SOMEONE TO TURN ON THE KEY ANDIF YOU DON'T HEAR THE PUMP START THEN TAKE A TEST LIGHT AND CHECK THE RED WIRE TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY LIFE IN IT. IF YES ITS YOUR PUMP IF NOT YOU HAVE TO START CHECKING WIRES. JIMBO
