My 01 cavi hasnt been starting for a while now. My friend has been saying its the timing. I tried to turn it over and after a couple revolutions it poofs. What is this poofing noise? Thanks, Austin

Asked by Aug 03, 2014 at 01:20 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe FWD

Question type: General

Ive been putting almost every new part in it i could think of to try and fix this problem,
plugs, plug wires, fuel injectors, fuel filter, and an ignition coil. I really hope the timing
chain isnt broken but it seems like that is the one of the only options left!

Sounds like a possible back fire. This would lead me to think timing chain issue.
