There is no fuel cut off switch.

You'll need to check for power to the fuel pump. There are two connectors on the passanger side to the right of the fuel tank. One of those is the connector for the fuel pump module. There will be a large gray wire in that connector. That is power to the pump. there will be a larger black wire also. That is the pump ground.

If there is power and the ground is good try smacking the bottom of the tank while somebody cranks the engine over (vehicle in park foot on brake and vehicle properly supported if jacked up). If it starts the pump will need to be replaced.

2004 chevy cavalier not starting after changing battery


When taking battery cables loose, I try to use memory saver. Hoping there won't be any problems on start-up? Are you saying the starter motor cranks good, but, won't start? If so, have helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs--check proper fuel pressure--check fuel injector pulse. If the starter motor won't even crank, then have to check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Any starter testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.

96 Benz ran out of gas other day, got it filled up & drove home (20 miles). Next day drove about 40 miles, left car running in park for about 15 min, when I left car was stalling like it was running o


You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

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

Car was low,low on fuel,put half tank in car.drove about 3miles onto 4lane and kicked it. when car tacked out in passing gear it started heasitating.eased off the accelerator and shifted fine.kicked it...


Replace the fuel filter. That should fix the problem. You can follow the fuel line back to the fuel tank to find it. It is usually in the middle of the vehicle near the edge of the vehicle, like right under the passengers or drivers door.

My Chevy Cavalier just stopped running all of a sudden


turn the key on, while having a buddy with the gas cap off listen for the fuel pump. If the fuel pump doesnt turn on than thats the problem. Try changing the relay first, if it were me I would bypass it first just to make sure. good luck

Wont run in gear. sat for a year and a 1/2 over weedy gravel with a 1/4 tank of gas, filled to half and drove on highway for an hour with only problem some engine misses under 40 km/h. did oil change,...


When stored outdoors for any length of time, you can get a substantial amount of condensation to form inside the fuel tank (as much as a half gallon) It will remain at the bottom of the tank and really mess with how it runs. Check fuel filter...Pour contents into a clean glass jar...If any water is found at all, you can bet there is quite a bit in the tank.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe won't start after fueling


After change fuel pumps per diagnostics still had problem with starting after fueling. Researched on-line and kept seeing purge control valve as solution. Mechanic didn't think it would do anything but filled up three times now and so far so good. part was $49 and he was nice enough not to charge for labor

Car won't start right away after refueling


I just fixed a similar problem on a Toyota Corolla. I'm not certain if your car's EVAP system setup is the same, but this could resolve your problem as well. Your car may have one or both: A refuel check valve, and/or a fuel cutoff valve. Generally these are located off of the fill tube, but the cutoff valve may be mounted on the fuel tank. 01e0b34.jpg
The problem occurs when your fuel tank is overfilled and/or gas flows into the EVAP line. The gas is too high in the filler neck thereby causing fuel to flow into the charcoal canister. A defective refuel and/or fuel cutoff valve would cause this problem. The cutoff valve prevents fuel from flowing into the canister, and the refuel valve helps to trigger the gas pump to stop.

Test refuel check valve (if installed) by blowing air from larger to smaller port. Air should not flow freely and the valve should open as pressure increases. Air should flow freely when blowing from smaller to larger port. Replace valve if it fails either test.

Test the fuel cutoff valve by holding it upright, as installed on car; air should flow freely. Turning upside down should prevent airflow. Also, fuel present in the check valve may indicate the tank was over filled meaning you possibly have fuel in your charcoal canister.

Is your engine warning light on? For the Toyota, code P0441 "Incorrect Purge Flow" was present. Just replacing a defective valve may not get rid of the code. It's possible that your charcoal canister was saturated with gasoline too so that may need to be replaced. I also heard of a situation where the fuel tank was contaminated and had to be cleaned.

Replacing the cutoff valve solved my problem. Good luck! Related Link: http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1998-toyota-corolla-vt190664.html
