Even if the fuel filter was clog it would still have some fuel pressure, fuel pump pressure is about 45psi, more then likely it's going to be your fuel pump.Check fuel pump fuse, if ok, while some one crank engine, hit gas tank with hammer, if it starts fuel pump, replace it.

I had the same issue!! it is the security system failing. I took it to the shop and they wanted a ridiculous amount of money to fix it.. So i did a ton of research and i found a part you can install yourself that will bypass it allowing your car to start every time... I did mine 5 years ago and i havent had an issue since. Check out the site your car in on the list year make and model.. They are friendly and have great customer service and for some reason if it doesnt work they will refund you 100% hope this helps ya out Do It Yourself GM Security bypass

Starter wires on a 1997 sunfire

Sunfire keys are not chipped therefore there is no learning process that needs to be done. The 3 10 thing is a waste of time. The ONLY theft deterrent in this car is the starter cutout through the passlock sensor circuit. It may also cut out the fuel pump, I can't remember. Also you were probably damaging your starter by holding the ignition to start giving it power too long and overheating and damaging the starter internally. To learn a new key to a cars computer with a "chipped" key (not the Sunfire) you just turn the ignition to "on" then "off" not hold it in start for the recommend amount of time.

Try turning the key to the on position three times, then leave it on the third time and wait about fifteen minutes for the security light to stop flashing. then turn the key off and try to start it.

Does my 2003 pontiac sunfire ecotec motor have a cam sensor? Where is it? If it starts as soon as u give it gas it cuts out. I've replaced: fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pk, spark plugs, crank sensor,...

there is still more to check. like the mass air flow sensor, the whole fuel line cleanout, and if its an auto it does have a camshaft sensor. its located into the transmission.
