If a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier will not start, it could very well be the fuel pump. It could also be the starter or battery.
Diesels are kept running while parked for various reasons. In cold weather, a diesel may be very difficult to start so it is better to leave it running. Maybe the engine is needed to run heat or A/C for the sleeper cab.
You don't unless you are parked with the engine running. If you are parked and you want the engine running but don't want the daytime running lights on just shut the car off and set the parking brake then start the car back up. The lights should remain off until you release the parking brake.
all you have to do is run water hoes in the hood of your car and start it why the water is running in to it =)
After sitting so long, you could have a bad battery, bad plugs, a bad fuse, bad gas, sludge in the carburetor if there is one, clogged injectors. These places are a where to start.
mine did that and i replaced the crank shaft sensor,problem was fixed
When the timing chain is bad on a 2002 Cavalier, the engine could have several symptoms. The engine could run rough, be hard to start, or not run at all.
It could be something to do with you spark plugs/wires/distributor. and on alot of GM cars and trucks it could be the fuel pump. The best thing to do is take it by a TRUSTED mechanic to check it out.
If your car won\'t start after running out of gas it could be that the fuel pump was damaged.
Man ran from the moment he could move.
It probably is the key switch.
its a 1994 cavalier the speedometer runs on its own and will not start it starts when the speedometer is not running it has the vs sensor
It COULD be the fuel pressure or if the theft system light on dash is blinking,it is that.
MAYBE IT COULD BE A BAD SENSOR. IF IT IS RUNNING GOOD I WOULD JUST IGNORE IT.
your security passlock could be engage, thus no gas will go to your injectors
Often cars that are parked overnight need to be recharged. It is possible that the battery has died and needs a replacement or a jump to start.
It could be because its running out of battery
If the security light on dash is on then it's a passlock problem. If not check the fuel pump first
Carburetor is a part in the Chevy Cavalier. It begins with the letter c.
it is quite possible that your gas line is clooged or you need a new fuel filter.
I had a 1981 that did the same thing. It turned out to be the fuel pump relay located behind the glove box. Good luck!
Only if your Harmonic Balancer is unlike anyone elses out there.
Start with the fuel pump. I have found in purchasing vehicles that have been parked for any length of time that I had always had to replace the fuel pump, strainer and filter.
It could shake so much it tipped over a running stove or maybe a running light and start a fire and the smoke frome that could kill a human
