I will try to help. with the key in the on position, do you hear the fuel pump humming? that is a must!! you may have to turn the key on and of for 15 second intervals to hear it for sure. if the fuel pump is humming, that means it's at least pumping. you'll need to narrow your search to this, is it getting fuel? or is it getting fire? that will narrow the search field. if it's getting fuel, but no fire, have you checked the crankshaft sensor? have you also checked all the fuses in the black box under the hood?when you changed the coils did you get everything plugged back in correctly? jusy trying to cover some bases with you. hope this helps!! thank you for choosing fixya.com

2003 chevy cavalier will not start after sitting overnight


Usually the sign of a bad fuel pump check valve that allows fuel pressure to bleed off over night. Try this in the morning. Turn the key to ON for 2-secs, then OFF. Repeat 3 times. Then try to start. If it starts right up, you need a new fuel pump. By turning the key on and off you're filling the fuel lines and building pressure that you lost overnight.

Why cavalier 2000 almost starts but won't what is the problem, battery and starter ruled out


That should be enough gas. Maybe the fuel pump is not working. Turn the key to on- you should hear the buzz or whine of the pump iin the gas tank for about 2 seconds. It should turn on briefly to pressurize the fuel line and then shut off until the car is cranked over. If you don't hear anything from the rear when turning the key to on, the pump may have quit working or power is not getting to it. Occasionally, a pump will still work but not well enough to make sufficient pressure for the fuel injectors to work. To check that, the pressure would have to be tested.
So, listen for the pump. If good, check your ignition by checking for spark at a sparkplug. If no spark, the ignition system will have to be checked and tests run to find the problem. If you have spark and still no go, test the fuel pressure. If pressure is low, replace the fuel filter and re-test.

My cavalier won't start


Okay there should be a plug on there make sure it is pluged in all the way. If you have someone to help you pull one of the spark plugs out plug it in to the wire (Do Not Hold Wire with Bear Hands) use insulated pliers.try to start car if you don't see a spark from plug then it means that the coil pack is bad. If it does spark then it is possible thet it may be a fuel problem.

1996 chevy cavalier wont fire


Need to actually,physically,check spark.Pull a plug wire off the plug,insert a medium size phillips head screwdriver into the spark plug wire boot,making sure it clicks in and engages.Lay the screwdriver's metal shank about a 1/4" from a metallic ground source (not the fuel line).Have someone crank the car over while you are looking for an arc between the screwdriver and ground.No arc...no spark...cheap easy way to check for spark and eliminate or not,the ignition system.

check to see if you can hear the fuel pump running.just cycle the key to the on position but dont turn over the motor you should hear a humming sound come from the fuel tank.if no sound check your fuses if all ok could be a bad fuel pump
or check to see if you have spark if no spak then it could be the module inside your distributor cap.it also controls the fuel pump.

Fuel pump


Check the ignition module in the distributor. It controls the spark as well as turning on the fuel pump.
