GOT SPARK???????? check coil pack

Think logically first and foremost. Sincerely, it's usually the basic of basics. I say this because countless times I would beat my head in frustration only to find it was something simple like:

  1. The spark plug wires were connected to the wrong places.
  2. The firing order is wrong.
  3. The distributor cap was not clamped down tight enough.
  4. The carburetor is not getting fuel.
  5. Fuel line filter is dirty.
  6. Battery is to weak to turn the engine.
  7. Spark plug gauge settings to deep / not deep enough / not right.
  8. Timing chain/belt is not adjusted properly.

So, I suggest these first. Even if you've done them and done them again, do them once more. Except this time, make a physical check list on a piece of paper and give it your full attention. Don't lose your patients or you lose track of what you're doing. Remain calm.

Does a starter drain a battery?

A starter does drain a battery. The battery holds a charge so that you can use your starter to start the car. After the car is started the alternator recharges your battery and runs your car and all it's accessories. If your car won't start or is having a hard time starting you can drain your battery by repeated unsuccessful attempts to start it.

You have 99 Chevy cavalier and it doest start is it battery radio still plays or is it starter and if it starter can i rebuild my own starter and if so how much would that be?

Sometimes there can be enough power in the battery to run electrical things but not enough to start the engine. You need to get the battery tested to see if it will hold a charge.You can try to jump start it using another battery. If it will not start this way,try charging the battery first before going on to the starter. If it turns out to be the starter, you can have it rebuilt. This can run about 20.00-40.00.

I am currently having the same issue. First unhook the battery completely. Then you need to find where the wires on the starter are connected to the battery. Detach the wires from the starter that go to the battery. Once you have the starter wires completely detached from battery you can start removal of starter from engine block.
