I have a 97 cavalier 2.2l OHV seemed to have been getting a little harder to start, just moved somehwere where it is a lot colder then I was loving before(rarely below 0). Have been staying in a hotel with heated underground parking, outside temp ~ -15 degrees Celcius. Day before had gone on over 1500km trip no problems. I had been using my car and parked it outside for about an hour and a half, came back out and it would start but would idle for a few second then die would also die if pressing on accelerator, did this for a bit then just wouldnt turn over. Figured frozen fuel lines so I put in some fuel line antifreeze and pushed it inside. Been a few days inside and its still not starting, at firsts would start then idle for a few seconds then die did that a few times, would die if I pressed the accelerator, now it just cranks doesnt even try to turn over. Was still hearing the fuel pump for a while, now I dont think I hear it anymore. Would it still make noise if it was dry, could this be the fuel filter being plugged? How many hrs labour to change fuel pump or filter? How hard would it be to do this myself? : Thanks
have the same problem?
