First check your relay, under hood . But you also have another filter in your tank. You can still build up pressure on eather . Good luck to you.

Why does the engine of my 1998 Chevy Cavalier z24 start rough when cold?

It sounds like your fuel filter is clogged, or the fuel pump is failing. I would change the filter first and see if that does it.

Not much you can do without troubleshooting the problem. It could be a crank sensor, ignition module, low fuel pressure, a vac leak, or a list of other things.
Usually if you have a sensor problem you will get a check engine light, but not always.

yes, the fuel filter is located in the rear of the vehicle just in front of the fuel tank.

I have changed the fuel pump twice on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter. I have also changed the fuel filter and the relay switch. The fuel pump wont kick on when I turn the key on.

The original Chevy pump motor has a good life. Running the vehicle out of fuel, which will actually run the pump in a dry state can shorten the expected life span considerably. Gasoline is a petroleum product and actually lubricates the inside of the fuel pump. The more you run the vehicle low on fuel or out of fuel, the more damage will occur and the quicker the pump will fail. Try replacing the pump and follow the above procedures for a good performance of the pumps. Cavalier fuel pumps available here

My vehicle runs well on high speeds. But, intermittently, whenever I slow down to a stop the engine stalls. This problem began about 3 years ago, occurred occasionally but it is occurring on a more...

I think your looking at a fuel line problem. I'd check the filter first if you have an inline filter on your car. If thats not it, check filter on fuel pump and fuel pump is operating as it is supposed to. sounds like you probably have a partial blockage in your line and when the fuel it flowing faster it doesn't effect it as much. I'm thinking fuel filter and you probably have 1 inline on that vehicle.

Had no spark. Replaced ignition mod, 2 coil packs, and computer. I now have fire; problem is engine will not run, the fuel injector sprays fuel (too much i think). When i unplug the injector the engine...

Check for any wiring pinch which might have occurred when the injector was replaced. The injector is driven directly by the computer, so it seems to point at the new computer as being faulty. (pulse signal is always 'on')

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start

Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.
