Spray some starting fluid into engine intake air duct while crankingengine over. If it tries to start good possiblity fuel pump is bad. (In fuel tank). However if it does not problem lies somewhere other than fuel system

Wont start...isnt the starter


Your fuel pump may have taken a ****, Undo the intake and spray something explosive down it, brake cleaner or something else, Just a few sprays not too much and see if the engine will kick over, if so, you may want to drop your tank and look there.

2000 chevy cavalier shut off while driving on the freeway , got it to start again drove home now engine turns over but wont start .


oh ok this is simple u need to put a new fuel filter on there it has a bad fuel filter on there try that out if not it is the fuel pump but try the fuel filter after that and the fuel pump if it still has a problem it is the gauge and try to put mid grade cause it causes less break downs for your car cause it doesnt mess up ur fuel filter

My 1997 chevy cavalier wont start.its getting spark and fuel.but wont fire it has a 2.2 ecotec.


Sounds like cam belt has snapped. If it broke while starting, could be cheap fix...new belt. Worst case: cylinder head off for overhaul...bent valves / pistons replaced.

Truck wont start


Check the fuel pressure. It needs to be 55 or higher no less.

97 chevy cavalier z24 2.4L wont start


sounds like a fuel pump. check for the car losing fuel pressure and you probably needed to turn the key a few times on off on to build enough pressure to start it. it wouldn't hurt to check the fuel pressure regulator as well a good throttle body cleaning won't hurt as well.
But worst case scenerio would be a timing chain with too much slack. those motors are known for it.

If the fuel pump is working, fuel should be reaching the motor. Otherwise, you need to check the fuel pressure regulator. Depending on the location, if it is before the motor and the regulator is bad, then the fuel wont pass through.
Did you check for spark from the wires? My experience with Chevy Cavaliers is usually electrical but not fuel related.
