CAR WON'T START

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 110,000 miles

I have a 04 Chevy Cavalier. Car won't start. I hear a brief buzzing sound when I turn the key, It tries to fire but doesn't.

Are you saying it cranks good, but won't start? Or it won't even crank? If it won't even crank, make sure the battery has a full charge and all connections, to and from the battery are clean and tight.

If it cranks good but won't start, do some of the basic tests. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure.
