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.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim

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

Why does my 2001 cavalier die when coming to a stop?


If it dies when you are coming to a stop after being on the freeway, chances are the torque converter solenoid is sticking in the transmission.
If it is doing it around town, I would look at the throttle body and idle air control valve. The computer controls idle speed by regulating air flow into the throttle body.

2001 cavalier wont start cranks but wont catch then it caught one or two times then shut right off has plenty of gas


More than likely a bad fuel pump. Take a rubber mallet and take a few upward strikes on the center of the gas tank (infront of rear tires in center of car). You should be able to reach from reach without raising car. Than try starting. If it fires and runs a few seconds where it wouldn't fire before striking the tank. You need to replace the fuel pump.

Do fuel pumps usually go out in 2001 cavaliers. My cavalier has constantly stalled on me when the tank was low, this is due to the fuel pump being exposed and over heating right? Now my car wont start I'm...


Yes! Never run a car low in fuel! Now you will need to replace the fuel pump as well as the filter. But you can 'bump-start' the car by pouring a bit of gas down the intake. Do Not make this a cure!!

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
