this could be many things . it could be a bad distributor cap a bad rotor or the ignition module bad ! TAKE THE CAP OFF AND MAKE SURE THE ROTOR TURNS WHEN YOU CRANK IT ! if it does not move then it is a timing belt that is bad.
This engine does NOT have a Distributor, or Conventional Coil,...so there is no Distributor Cap, nor Rotor.
sounds like your ignition coil or control module are shot. Either can cause this problem.
If all plug wires are dead, no spark, and the module has power and ground suspect crank angle sensor. Of course sensor will break opon removal from engine block 4Cyl but in VA NAPA sells the sensor for $9.00. On the distribitorless system the crank sensor, module, and coils are all piggybacked in the same location, back of engine and is very difficult to service. When I was working as a auto tech we had allot of trouble with crank sensors and ign coils.
Before you jump to any conclusions. If your starter is cranking the engine at a normal speed(use your judgment), and you preformed all test for spark, such as pulling wire off spark plug and connecting positive end of volt meter into plug, and negative end to ground, you should see a definite deflection on an analog meter. All test and still no spark. DON'T forget to check your fuses and fuseable links in the starting and charging system. THIS must be done first. 50% chance, this is where your problem lies.
Perhaps it was hit by a meteorite. Check for fuel and spark.
IF IT IS A 4 CYL YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD CRANK SENSOR OR IGNITION MODULE.
A tune up consists of changing the fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wire and adjust any valves. The average cost for a tune up for a Chevy Cavalier would be between $100 to $150 depending on the cost of labor.
i would like to remove the backseat from my 1992 chevy cavalier
Bad spark plug or plug wire or one or both valves leaking or stuck. Time for a compression check or spark check.
Does it have fuel/spark/compression?
It is probably in need of new spark plug wires.
Two common reasons why an engine will crank over, but not start: There is no spark. There is no gasoline.
I would replace the ignetion module that is in the distributor.
You will not go wrong installing the OEM AC/Delco plugs, just like came in the car. This is what I would install in a GM vehicle.
The third generation of Chevy Cavaliers was from 1995-2005. So, you would think they would be compatible. However, Chevy gave the Cavalier a face lift in 2000. You can see more pictures and find more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Cavalier
The cost to replace the clutch in a 1999 Chevy Cavalier ranges from $100 to $180. This depends on part brand and labor costs.
Why would lights clicker and go deem when car wants to cut off the car is an 1985 Chevy cavalier?
start with air,fuel or spark should be one of those.
I have a 1989 Chevy Cavalier, and I need to know how to put freon in to use the air conditioner in my Cavalier. Right now it is blowing hot air, would like cold air. Please help me.
Hard to say, bad bulbs, fuse, wiring, that's where I would start to check. Good luck. It shouldn't be too difficult though.
you would have to change the bumper and fenders on your sunfire to get the hood to fit but to start off u would have to change the front bumper clip to interchange bumpers
The Thermostat on a 2001 Chevy Cavalier is not in the normal place where it would be on most engines. It is instead under the vehicle just inside the passenger side wheel well.
Would have been built for R12, can be converted to R134a.
Low fuel pressure
If I could answer this question, then I wouldn't be asking it. Now would I?
Bad coil Bad rotor
I had that issue with my Cavalier and it turned out to be a fuel pump problem. I would check with your local mechanic.
I would say you have to check your coil packs, and ignition module to see if they are firing on all cylinders, and have the correct spark. Anything but a bright blue spark means a weak coil. The ignition module can be tested at some parts stores.
