Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
We found the problem by taking the truck to the dealership, after spending $550.00 on parts and having everything we could remove tested or we purchased them new and replaced them. We spent two weeks on it and took it to Chevrolet but it took them three days after all we had done, the problem turned out to be the gear on the distributor, sure we replaced every part in it but because we could not get the distributor out with the intake on it we had not even considered the gear, thanks for your assistance and maybe we'll try you again next time....Thanks again.

Thanks alot for the info listed here, I had the same problem Engine turns but won't start and first bought a crank shaft sensor $75 and that wasn't the problem, next I bought a new distrubutor $120 and that was it !!!! My truck was fixed, Its a 1997 chevy silverado w/249,000 miles and is still going strong now, Thank you guys for your input.
The problem with my chevy distributor is after wear and tear it seperates at the gear at the bottom of the shaft approx 1/4 inch or so and causes it the jump and causes misfire of timing and my new distrubtor does not have that gap and after replacing it started right up. Thanks
