You may want to check the fuel pump fuse first. I just had it happen to me. On the panel it is marked fp.AnswerIn my experience changing the ignition module should fix the problem . AnswerIt could be the crankcase position sensor. If no pulses are seen from the sensor, the ignition module will not fire the spark plugs.
The small block chevy turns in a clockwise rotation.
There is a sensor on most modern cars which turns on the fan when the coolant temperature reaches a certain value. If this sensor is bad, the fan may run continously.
I had an 1988 Chevy Cavalier once, and it did the same thing. Turns out, it had a weak engine mount. During braking, the engine would move just enough to cause the plug between the ECM and the wiring harness to separate slightly, causing a short.

There is no ETF light on a 1996 Chevy Cavalier. But there is an ETS light which stands for 'electronic traction system'. This light turns on where there is a problem with the brake system.
I'd check the coolant level first, then the thermostat.
every engine needs fuel, air, and spark. which is it not getting?
not always but it will turn about a second before the engine siezes due to a lack of oil The service engine light turns on for emission related failures, not lack of oil.
Clean the terminals on the battery and cables. You might not be getting good contact.
Fuel pump is my guess.
Check the Chevy S10s crankshaft position sensor. The sensor is located low on the engine, and the snow could have gotten the connection damp. The engine will not start when the sensor does not operate.
Check the coolant levels. Insure that the cooling fan turns on when its supposed to, and the thermostat is not stuck closed. Make sure that the water pump is operating correctly.
There is a problem with the emmission system are transmission and the computer turns the engine light on to let you know there's a problem. Have engine scanned with a OBDII engine scanner.
There probably is a leak. Is there still freon in it? There are ares in the a/c system that are not visable. Was Dye added?
* No gas * Clogged fuel filter * Malfunctioning fuel pump * Spark plug wire * Voltage regulator problems (not allowing enough voltage for spark)
It could be low on fuel.
check if it is getting fire
The z24 models have a 2.4L DOHC engine.If you look at the engine,on the passenger side it is flat.A chain goes all the way around that part on the inside.The chain turns two camshafts(intake and exhaust) and the water pump. So,the answer is "no" it has a timing chain.
Check your fuel pump.
I had this happen with a Chevy Cavalier. It turned out to be the Electronic Ignition Control Module. The mechanic was unable to get any codes from the computer so tried a couple of things until he found out what was wrong.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
There are none, timing is adjusted by the ECM by advancing or retarding the spark in each cylinder. There is a chain in the side of the cylinder head that turns the cam but this is not adjustable.
Check for fuel and spark.
chances are the battery is out of wack or the engine could be flooded
im putting a 5.7 wh statesman engine in my vt but using the vx ss wirring harness the mtor turns over but no spark is the harness different
