Thank you for your help. I did check the battery cable and there was alittle corrosion on it, the cable has a broken wire inside and also was loose, I hate those batteries that mount on the side, they are nothing but trouble! Thank again

Will Exhaust affect your reverse

Chevrolet Cavalier 2001 2 door/2.2 75000 miles
My exhaust fell and I fixed it. Problem seemed fixed till I hit a bump and now my exhaust sounds like shit. I have an appointment to have it fixed but like most Americans I need it to go to work till then. This morning I went to back up and I had to slam on the gas to get it enough power to go in reverse. I hope thats all thats wrong with it. My question is why does the exhaust affect your reverse?

Low reverse bands maybe worn out. Or plugged transmission filter. Drop pan and fluid if you find chunks of clutches or a lot of filings in bottom of pan or in fluid. Transmission might be shot.

Start good warm runs bad

Chevrolet Cavalier 1988 Z24 2.8 litre 195000 miles
Starts fine sounds smooth. The minute it warms up it misses sputters stall dies. Have to double foot it to get it home. Let it cool off rand repeats all over again. I have replace all the sensors two new brains new cool packs new plugs and wires ran injector cleaner through it sea foam through it i'm ready to scream. One day it started acting up like this nothing traumatic happened to the car. Super frustrated. I read on a blog that where the computer is grounded under the coil packs sometimes the harness look like they are connected but here not getting enough connection they were all right. Any suggestions ? Help

Wont turn over or start

Chevrolet Cavalier 2002 2.2l coupe 190000 miles
My 02 cavalier died when my roommate was driving. It wasnt getting fuel and no sound from fuelpump. It would turn over not start. I replaced pump checked all fuses and relays all good. Then you would hear pump engage with key on still no start but now there is fuel pressure i have fire but seems fuel not getting to injectors. I could spray parts cleaner and car would run till burn off. Thats first problem.
Ok second problem i opened my door to roll up windows car alarm went crazy now it wont turn over nothing. Light is flashing and there is a clicking under dash that clicks then stops bout 30 sec clicks again. Please help. The guys 2 of them are lost. Im a female i know alot but this no...please n thanks

Car will not start

Chevrolet Cavalier 2004 2.2 ecotech 190000 miles
Last Monday I got in my car started it and drive 1.5 miles home. It was very loud pulled in my parking lot parked, and turned key off. Waited bout an hour went out and checked my oil and to my surprise there wasn't any registering. I added 2qts and started it waited 10 minutes for car to warm up and noise starting away. Put it reverse backed 15ft changed to drive and it died. No restart. I have thus far have replaced the:
Ckp sensor
Fuel filter
Spark plugs
Fuel regulator
Coil above spark plugs. I'm getting spark and if leave foot on pedal a minute I smell gas. I've checked the pressure and it is right. It also turns over. I am stumped
