2002 Chevy Cavalier: Intermittent Won't Start.

Asked by Feb 19, 2015 at 06:33 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Vehicle cranks well, just replaced battery. It seems to be a fuel issue: I sprayed starter fluid into the intake (and behind the air filter) and it ran till I stopped spraying the starter fluid.

It's done this 5-6 times this month; after 5-10 minutes, it will start and run fine. It seems to do this after it's been run for awhile and warmed up, then parked for 20 minutes or more.

Ever change the fuel filter?
