Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles

I got my car in August of 2008, and I was driving one day and I went to give it gas and it wouldn't go. I would hit the accelerator, but it wouldn't move. I managed to get it to a parking lot nearby, and the car stalled when I put it into park. We had thought the car ran out of gas, but we put gas and jumped the car, the engine shakes, but it won't start. Can you help?

I can help. But first you ahve to help me!

Get a spark tester and check for spark on all cylinders.

If thats good the spark will be bright blue and well defined.

If anything other then that its a spark issue.

If the sparks good then dump gas and spray starting fluid down throttle body with someone cranking it.

Does it fire up and run till fuel is used up then dies?
