Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
My 2001 cavalier will start but then dies
The passlock anti-theft system is possibly not working properly, if the passlock thinks you are trying to start the car with anything but the key it will kill the fuel pump power within 10 seconds.
The problem may be as simple as an ignition key cylinder exchange.

If its been a while sense you have chg. fuel filter,DO IT, If still does the same after that, do fuel pressure test, fuel pump might be on its way out. $$$$$. If pump and filter chks. out ok, than maybe its fuel regulator. My best guess its either filter or pump.

Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.

It sounds like your alternator is not charging. You may want to have it tested and replace/rebuild it if necessary. Many times the problem is that the brushes are worn in the alternator and it stops charging correctly. The brushes are usually attached to the voltage regulator and are replaceable if you have the parts and skill. You can also replace the voltage regulator/brush assembly as a unit.
Many parts stores will test your alternator for free.

It could be that your timing belt has broken. Also the ECM relay could have went out. Fuel pump could have went out, fuel pump relay could have burnt out. It could be many things. You just have to follow a systematic approach and then you can find the problem
