It's possible the crankshaft position sensor is bad and when your running it it will heat up and shut down on you . the sensor is located on the back side of the block. it will cost about 20 dollars to replace it but becarefull pulling the old one out. mine did the same thing run a bit get hot shut down and kept doing it till i replaced the cps, so try that first. you can pick one up at autozone

Why wouldn't your Chevy Cavalier start after it was washed?

There is probably a leaky connector seal somewhere or possibly a little water gets in the distributor, provided that your cavalier is old enough to have a distributor. Check the connectors, especially around the ignition distribution. You can seal connectors with a little silicon grease, but if there is any damage, just replace the part.

In runescape how do I make people stop saying your the thief who stole from me?

If you are training the thieving skill, after stealing form a market stall, you can't buy anything at the same market stall for a while, or talk to the owner in general. I believe it is for the next 15 minutes or so. After that... well, let's say that the owner of the stall forgets, everything gets back to normal.If you are training the thieving skill, after stealing form a market stall, you can't buy anything at the same market stall for a while, or talk to the owner in general.

How is the steering shaft of the Chevy Cavalier grounded?

Hey Roy== It is grounded through the steering box. If it has a rag universal joint there is supposed to be a ground wire to cross the joint. GoodluckJoe On a Cavalier, always check the ground wire going from battery negative to the plate under the battery. That connection gets dirty and fails, and everything including the steering shaft gets its ground through that. If you are getting low voltage at your steering shaft, that connection is likely the problem.


How would you find why a heater fuse blew out in a 1989 Chevy Cavalier?

Put a new one in with the heater fan in the off position. Then turn it on. If it blows again its probably the fan itself. Pull it out and see if its stiff when you try to turn it by hand. Its located in the engine compartment, on the fire wall, on the passengers side. If the fan is stiff it will cause the fuse to blow every time you turn the fan on. Hope that gets you started.

Gas leaks are pretty evident where ever they may be. But one place that dont get considered and slips by most of the time is the fuel pressure regulator vacuum line. It gets past the diafram and gets sucked into the intake manifold causing poor mileage,flood outs, and hard strarting problems.
