2000 Chevy Cavalier Won't Start

20

Asked by Mar 09, 2015 at 12:05 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm not the best with cars but I will try to
explain as best I can. Just last week I put a
new alternator and fuel filter in and got an
oil change. I was driving on the freeway
when i felt a small bang (thought i blew a
tire but didn't) and the car just quit. I
noticed when i pulled over the oil light came
on. I have power and the car turns over but
won't start. It doesn't seem to be locked up
at all, just won't start. I have no clue what's
wrong. The bang I felt
worries me but any tips on what to look for
would be appreciated.

Mileage? You may have a broken timing belt, but I need to look up to see if that car has a belt or chain.

OK it has a chain. So forget broken belt. Other than that it's very difficult to say not being at the car, and somebody that knows more hopefully will chip in here

Appreciate the answer. I got the chance to look at it and got it figured out. The fuel filter harness broke and blew off while i was driving. Couldn't see it last night in the dark on the side of the freeway. Pretty easy fix thankfully. Thanks for answering though.

That will do it. Glad you got it, especially not being expensive.
