Shakes or Wobbles problem
1997 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles

1997 chevy cavalier 116000 miles. My car had died like it had ran out of gas (it said it still had a quarter of a tank). Put a little gas in and tried cranking it but it shook really bad and something in front of the drivers side made a noise like a clanking fan. I was told to fill it up over a half of a tank and let it set and it will start working properly. So far it hasnt worked. I get the same thing everytime.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check fuel pressure with mechanical gauge, if it ran out of gas, the pump may have overheated.

If fuel pressure is OK, then check spark.
