Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

1 Answer

My 2000 Cavalier doesn't start, it will sound as though it will turn over, but it just wont start. I' ve listened for operation of the fuel pump, that seems to be working. I also notice the anti-theft light blinking. I'm baffled by this, any suggestions.

Have you checked the gas duct that comes from the gasoline tank to the fuel pump? .... what about the gasoline filter?

2000 Chevrolet cavalier engine turns over but does not start. Replaced fuel filter and started and ran for a few weeks. lots of fuel in tank. Now back to motor turns over but no start again

Check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail under the hood, looks almost like a tire valve that you would put air into. If you press it down fuel should come out with some kind of pressure (I think its like 20 - 30 PSI but don't qoute me)

Also have another person listen under the car in the rear for the fuel pump to kick on when you turn the key on, no pump sound means no fuel pressure means go engine starting

My car keeps cutting off then wont start but it cranks

Have you checked the fuel pump relay? Or have you checked the fuel pump fuse? If the vehicle is turning over but not starting it sounds like fuel is not making it to the engine. Let me know if it works. If that doesn't work then the other solution would be to check all of the other fuses and see if they are good.

My 2000 chevy S10 wont start I changed the battery and it ran fine for 2 days now it will turn over but won't start

Check Fuel Pressure. First turn key to on position (without starting) and listen for the fuel pump motor. If no motor sound, your fuel pump is not working. Check fuel pump fuse and relay. If fuel pump works, check for pressure at the fuel rail (schrader valve on fuel rail for pressure testing). If no pressure, or not enough, fuel filter might be clogged or fuel pressure regulator may not be working properly. IF fuel is not the problem, start checking electrical, such as ignition control and proper spark to plugs.

2000 silverado wont start

one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

My wifes 2003 cavalier was parked and idling, then my wife said it dropped rpm's then died , and now it turns over but wont start . It has only 90,000 miles on it with regular maintanence.

probably the fuel pump. turn the ignition on but don't start the vehicle and listen for a humming noise for about 5 seconds. that is the fuel pump pressurizing the lines if you don't hea any noise that is most likely your problem.

Dodge caravan turns over wont start all lights work

possible bad fuel pump. check fuel pump relay under hood. drivers side fuse panel. swap fuel pump relay with another identical relay to rule out possible bad relay. listen for whining sound back by fuel tank. the fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Another can also check the pressure in the fuel rail, but be careful not to squirt gas in your eyes or face.

My sebring sometimes won't start even though it

Sounds like a faulty fuel pump. Next time it doesn't start have someone listen with their head right above the gas tank. When you turn the key to "on" pos, without trying to turn it over, they should be able to hear the pump spin.

Cold weather does not start

Need to listen for fuel pump humm for proper operation. Shoud humm for about 3 seconds with key turned in the on position. Humm will sound from gas tank where the pump is located. If it does not humm. possible Faulty Fuel pump relay or pump. It will need ferther diagnosis.
