The first thing that I would do is start the car and if you have time, diconnect the positive battery cable. If the car dies then it's the alt. Otherwise could be a fuel pump or possibly maybe in the trans. I had a similar problem in my 86 and it was the TCC, (torque converter clutch), which would not let my car idle right, and kill it. Hope this helps.

I have an 1986 550L and the best way to get it started is to push start it.

maybe the fast idle valve. mine started to die whenever i had that lowered.

if the battery is not bolted down tight your positive post is grounding on the hood killing the vehicle.

The engine cooling fan is not suppose to stay on. The temperature sensor on the motor tells the fan to kick on if the motor ever gets too hot, usually comes on at 210-215 if I remember right.

check either the: battery, alternator, carburetor (if your car is that old, the fuel-ingection may be a bit difficult to tinker with yourself), or maybe the gearbox.

it wont stay in your system it's legal so therefore wont be on your system so it's completely safe

No it wont, only the 2.2l engine's transmission will work with the 2.2l and same goes with the other engine.

probably because your dimmer switch is bad or a relay

my 1992 dodge dakota wont stay running it stalls when driving and takes a few minutes to get started but if i wait it will start

If the 2000 Cavalier has no lights an will not start, there is an electrical issue. Check the battery, alternator, and the wiring from the battery all the way to the starter to find the problem.
