1994 Chevy Cavalier won't run

Asked by Apr 10, 2017 at 04:59 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving  and it seemed to be running fine.
Then I heard a pop sound, almost like a backfire
but not as loud, then it died and won't start up. It
turns over but just won't fire. Can hear the fuel
pump when key is turned.

Run a compression test. Sounds like it may have jumped timing. If all cylinders test very low or zero, it has jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
