2003 Chevrolet Malibu QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Looking to see how and how much to replace a engine module
Driving as little as possible. Would there be any advantage to
flushing cooling system until we
actually get a solid answer and
make a decision as to repair or
No lit icons, no error messages.
Engine running O.K.
Previous repair of leak at intake manifold done at approximately 60,000 miles (now 114,000) at
local GM dealer.
I have taken my car to three different emissions places. They have all said that they can not get a reading. I have had the fuses checked and all are in good shape.
I have found one factor that radio cause battery to drain. So I disconnected and removed the radio to continue the Parasitic test. The amps reads from 0.74 A down to 0.44 A. It's still a lot.
Now, amp reads at down to 0.013 A when I disconnected pink connector of BCM. I want to know the wire information to which BCM pink connector connects. Any idea would be helpful and appreciate!
We parked at an outdoor fair on Sunday, and could smell the water and then see a small puddle on the ground. After walking around the fair, went home w/ no problems. Today, as my wife was coming home from work, the same thing apparently happened again...
I tried to put key to 'on' position then go start boost, no engine cranked, sometimes all lights are off, sometimes lights are on but all meters went to crazy. Only way I can boost car is reconnect battery. By the way, the battery is clean and no post corrosion. What is weird is if I made car boosted then turn off and re-boost directly, it will work. But if car is off over night then I have to boost with the trick. This is very old car, I am trying to figure out as much as I can. Any idea would be appreciate!
Then next morning temp gauge went to red, back down to normal below normal then back up to red. Is this just the thermostat?
