1994 Chevrolet Cavalier ProblemsInspect transmission/fluid every 30,000 miles
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.
The ignition module or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to die and not restart. Diagnoses will be necessary to determine if the module or crank sensor is causing the no start condition.
Engine would start then immediately die, after a few attempts the engine would then start and run normally. It was found that when the car died the radio would not be on. Detent had been lost between run and key-on positions of key switch, so the force of the start return spring caused the switch to go to the almost off position, where the engine red light, ecm, etc would come on but not the fuel pump, and radio would be both off.
