Hi Q1 : this could be the ignition coil relay not giving you any spark at the plugs, when you turn the ignition on do you hear a click of sorts? if not locate your fuse box and find the ignition coil relay and give it a tap if it does not click when you turn ignition on, then its faulty and needs replacing also you need to check the live feed to the coil packs and see if you are getting any voltage to them, Q2 fuel pump, numerous things could stop this working, does your vehicle have a factory fitted immobiliser? or one that has been fitted? this could be the fault with the fuel pump + ignition also, has your vehicle got an emergency fuel cut off switch? ( some models have some do not ) this may have tripped if it was accidentally knocked in some way,have a look under the hood and see if you have what looks like a red button that has a red rubber top, press that just to check, i gather you have checked all fuses and wires to the pump? have you got a live feed to the fuel pump? locate the pump, pull off the plug should be 2 wire type, turn ignition on and see if you get a feed...well i hope that will give you some more ideas to look at for now good luck..please vote thanks

Testimonial: "still having problems new coil pack installed new crank sensor installed still no fire to sparkplugs "
Hi there, I am currently having a similar issue with my 99 cavalier 2.2L. I have found that the fuse box under the hood has power going into the box but when I pulled the fuel pump relay I found that thgere is no power to all 4 prongs. I then realized that there is a problem with my fuse box. I took it out and rebuilt the broken connections and now it wsorks fine. Please let me know If I was any help. Thanks
