You may have fuel but you may not have enough fuel pressure to operate the fuel injectors.you should have the fuel pressure checked at a shop as your fuel pump may not be any good.the fact that you said it pops a little when trying to start is another possible indication of a fuel problem.if there is a computer sensor problem then th e check engine light should have come on or is on longer than the bulb test time when you turn the key on.

2002 cavalier 2.4 will not start fuel pump runs has spark


FUEL PUMP ONLY HUM'S FOR 2 SECONDS WHEN YOU TURN KEY TO ON, NOT START, POSITION. YOU CANNOT HEAR PUMP RUN WHEN CAR IS RUNNING ! THIS 2 SEC., IS THE PUMP PRIMING ITSELF TO START ENGINE. YOU MIGHT BE HEARING EITHER THE POWER STEERING OR WHATEVER, NOT THE FUEL PUMP!!!!!! GIVEN THE YEAR OF THIS CAR, YOUR FUEL PUMP COULD BE BAD, CHECK FUSES, RELAY, GROUND WIRES, TO PUMP, ALSO CHANGE YOUR FUEL FILTER !!!!! AIR FILTER ALSO !!!!!!! SPARK PLUG WIRES SHOULD ALSO BE REPLACED !!!!

Chevrolet Cavalier 2004 quits running while driving down the highway.


need to check fuel pressure, not just listen for pump to run, also check reading on coolant temp sensor, but sounds like fuel pump /filter issue. just because you hear pump run doesnt mean its putting our right amount of pressure. also check for plugged catylic convertor

I have a 97 chevy cavalier i just replaced the comp and all fuses but it still wont fire and not getting fuel i am lost on this can you help me please


pull # 1 or any plug you can get to but #1 cylinder is best place plug into wire and place plug electrode near metal, have someone crank motor and you check spark plug. does it create a spark at the electrode? also does the cylinder push air out at same time plug sparks? also have someone turn the key on while you get under car and listen to the gas tank and notice, do you here a motor come on for a brief second or two and then quit? Do you have a manual? check and see if this car has a fuel shut off switch. call dealer and ask as well as location. If there is no spark and no fuel i think the fuelshut off switch has tipped. also check wire harness at the firewall under the hood for possible loose or unpluged.

I have an 89 ford bronco 2 with a 2.9 liter it sat around for 2 years without being started. I replaced the plugs, rotor, cap, ran fuel injector cleaner through it several times, checked cylider...


check the spark plug wires are attached all the way till it snaps, pull each spark plugs, any black deposits on any plug means it isn't firing(faulty plug,or wire) last of all take off each injector wire and notice if there is a change in idle speed (plugged injector)
