Cold or warm start this happens randomly. Turn the key over and it will either start partially then die immediately, sometimes it won't start at all unless I has the hell out of it.And then there's times it sounds like the starter/ignition sticks. Again it very random and most days its fine. I have had similar problems with an 05 Malibu with no hatch. And it turned out to be a fuel pump. Please please please tell me that's not the case this time...

well then scan for codes and test components and fix the car
OK a shade tree mechanic with no special tools... sides the last time my cell came on it was because it wasn't running hot enough.. I think that's the same reason its on now. Whatever the code was.. lol
