Start with the simple and check your fuses. the ECM fuse i believe runs your fuel pump. At worst, your fuel pump needs to be replaced and that is located in your gas tank.

The average life time of the fuel pump is 150,000 miles and any thing longer then that is considered borrowed time.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

Chevy 2001 Cavalier won't start


Trace the power source from fuse to relay etc and make sure pump is working. if all checks out then check pump working and for preasue at engine. you may have a dammaged fuel line from the tank which would also cause the same problem

2001 cavalier wont start cranks but wont catch then it caught one or two times then shut right off has plenty of gas


More than likely a bad fuel pump. Take a rubber mallet and take a few upward strikes on the center of the gas tank (infront of rear tires in center of car). You should be able to reach from reach without raising car. Than try starting. If it fires and runs a few seconds where it wouldn't fire before striking the tank. You need to replace the fuel pump.

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

Engine cranks but wont start


I just worked on a 01' Cavalier just two weeks ago with this problem. It ended up being a bad fuel pump. Get under the rear of the car and have someone turn the key on (don't crank the engine). Listen for that high pitch fuel pump noise. If you don't hear that, the pump may be bad. Check your fuses first, then the relay. Under the hood on the driver side there is a box that contains the fuel pump relay. They are small and made by siemens I believe... there should be two. One is the fuel pump and the other is the A/C. Swap the two (same relay). Then try to start your car again. If the fuse is good and you switched the relays, the pump is probably bad. Another way to test the pump theory...(unscrew the intake hose clamp and pull it off the airbox). Have someone crank the engine as you spray starting fluid in the hose. The engine will start for a moment, then die. If the engine does start, this means that the ignition system and engine are in good working order. If it doesn't start, you may have a problem with the ignition system or ECU. If it does end up being the pump, you have the pull the fuel tank to get to the pump. Chev didn't engineer an access panel. Give that a try and let us know what happens. Good luck.

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.

My 2001 cavalier ran out of gas, and now it wont start after putting gas in the tank. the engine cranks but wont start. could it be the pump?


You will need to check the fuel pressure. You will have a connection on the fuel line to the motor under the hood. No fuel pressure indicates one of three problems. Fuse in fuse box, relay in relay box under the hood or fuel pump located in fuel tank.
