My chevy cavalier suddenly died while driving. Seems to be a fuel issue. How do I fix this?

Asked by Jun 05, 2015 at 12:51 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving my 2000 chevy cavalier
(135000 miles) on the freeway and the car
died without warning (no strange noise or
anything) and won't start. It turns over but
doesn't try to start.I checked the fuses and
they were fine.  I sprayed starting fluid in it
and it briefly caught. The fuel pump is
kicking on. I changed the fuel filter and
rented a code reader. It said there was no
codes.  I also rented a fuel pressure gauge
but there is no port on my car. What steps
should I take next?

I would remove your fuel line and pump and see if it's clogged
