I have a 2004 cavalier that has a new coil new starter new module and new crank sensor in it but want start it gets gas and oil


if fuel is getting to injectors, are the injectors plugged ! if you are getting fuel to engine plus a good spark it should start. check the plugs for fouling out. maybe there not firing right. if a plug or plugs are not firing. then they will be wet on the tips of the plug. crank engine a few times, then pull the plugs to see if they are firing.if not firing, check for bad plug wires. theres so many things that can cause this. its hard to say without being there!

1996 S-10 cranks but no fire


did you check to see if fuel pump is pumping. fuel filter isnt clogged is it? but you're sure there is no spark. because if there is spark it could be air flow problems.
and you changed the ignition switch so that's not it, how about the starter. is there any noise coming from the starter when you turn key? if it isn't lined up right.
there has to be spark if you did what you said take off a wire at night and try it . electricity to start goes, ign switch battery starter(is there a relay on s10s cant remember), the alternator is here also.to coil/distributor to wires to plugs to gasoline

also it could be the wires coming from the battery , check them for corrosion. if they are really corroded could be problem. and make sure your ground is good contact. ive seen corrosion inside wires causing no spark.
just a few ideas to check.

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 your battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush if they are corroded and make sure they are tight. If this doesn't work check the following: Fuel tank empty?, spark plugs incorrectly gapped if they are new, if old- maybe replace them, possibly faulty ignition coils, then maybe the crankshaft sensor is bad or timing chain is broken. I got the latter of information from the Haynes Repair Manual. Check this stuff in order. Good luck.
