I changed engines from a 1996 chevy cavalier to a 1997 cavalier,i don't get any gas or fire won't start


These cars were made with an anti theft security system. If you swapped motors, you may have interupted that system causing the the security to turn off the ijector fuel. Just a thought.

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

I have a 1996 chevy cavalier z24 manual transmission. My car cranks but wont turn on. I changed the ignition Switch with a new key. The Anti theft alarm stays on. i cut the alarm off because the horn is...


Check timing belt. Remove the oil filler cap and look at the rocker arm. If you get someone to turn the engine while you watch and you see no movement... it's a broken belt. If you see movement, perhaps the belt has slipped. Replace belt and re time.

notify dealer code is part of anti theft system -the battery pobably went dead before u bought car that is what usually does it- if u have manual in it tells u how to retrieve the radio id code which will be needed or call dealer first they can advise, go in with codes and id and vehicle proof of ownership and they will give u code for ur radio

I think the anti theft system is keeping my car from starting it trys to start but acts as if theres a fuel shut off active


it probably is just take your car to chevy dealership to have fixed for free. there was a recall about five years ago fixing the problem. problem was it was the anti theft system was catching cavaliers on fire blowing every fuse from the steering wheel all the way to the motor like mine did lol. so fix asap

It is probably not the anti theft system if it cranks over fast then slow it is your timing chain. If you want to try resetting the anti theft system disconnect the battery cables for 24 hours and reconnect them.
