Chevrolet Malibu QuestionsRefine by vehicle
replaced ignition lock and housing (new tumblers, springs to match to original key. Worked fine at home, put it in the car key was turning, after putting the cover, battery and GEAR SHIFT back to park position the key won't turn anymore. I took the cover off the shift assembly and manually shifter gears back and forth to make sure it's sitting it park position. I am able to put the key in and out, but no turning.
turn key nothing check all voltage points power everywhere could not get to park netural switch to check but i think it's ok. have not filled fluid level in steering pump till it is running.
Gas indicators fluctuates between full and 1/2 tank otherwise shows empty most of the time. Tried fuses several times and within 2 weeks the fuses are blown. I find also that my left signals and/or headlights have had to be replaced 2x in past year but have never had to replace the right side. I have had this car 4 years.
car would click when you would turn the key on finally today it wouldnt start at all i was told it was the charging sensor i want to know where it is located on the motor and how hard is it to put on
So far I replaced the gas cap, the selenoid and the charcoal cannister. Still, I can't pass inspection because of the cel, can someone supply me with another remedy?
I click the turn signal on and sometimes it starts to work, blinker going click click and lighting up THEN with it still clicked on it just stops on its own..it just goes dead, no light, no noise of clicking, just nothing. Ill click it on and off and NOTHING. then later while driving it will all the sudden work again. sometimes when they wont work for nothing, if I click my hazzards on for a min it will make the turn signals work again but not always.
gas gauge works sometimes and sometimes not
also checked the fuse and no problem there. Occasionally happened before, but after few trials was able to latch, now having to tie shut
no waterin oil car drove fine for a week and then one day it wouldnt go over 2500 rpm or 40 mph until eventually it wouldnt even start
MY CAR IS STALLING OUT, AND GAS IS LEAKING FROM THE MUFFLER.
Every time I fill the gas tank, the gauge shows full, but after a few minutes the needle falls to empty and I hear the warning indicator that the tank is empty (even though it isn't).
recently purchased with 36,000 miles. took it to shop who replaced evap vent selonoid and told me to drive for 80 miles which i did last nite, however the light is still on , any advice?
I can add water over night and it will still be full in the morning. But I can only drive about a mile to a mile in a half before the water evaporates. Water has to be added after a mile of driving the water reserve thing will be empty. the overheating indicator moves to over the half way point rather quickly. Therefore I can't drive for fear of overheating and causing more damage. I have not noticed any leaking of the water or other fluids for that matter.
I have had oil changed and other fluids checked.
I HAVE RECENTLY GOT AN OIL CHANGE, TUNEUP, AND ALSO CHANGE THE OIL PRESSUE SYSTEM
my sun visors fall out of the spot it is in to hold it in place. They have been replaced but I feel the person stripped something while replacing them. Where can i get this fixed? will glue fix it?
When I am driving my car, it will lose power and die down when I come to stop sign to stop or turn a corner after lifting my foot off the gas pedal. It jumps a little and then just cut off. What do you think causes this. It could cause me to be rammed in the back. I just brought a new air filter a few months ago.
I went to an auto supply store and they changed my battery.They plugged something in to keep the memory intact.When they finished I went to start my car and no gauges worked nor did the a/c.I also heard a compressor pully noise I associated with that.Checked all fuses that I knew of.Fuse block on both sides of the dash and 1 under the hood all was good.I bought an a/c relay and no fix of either issue?????
Driving down the street one day and power steering went out. bought power steering fluid. Come to find out, it is electric and does not need powere steering fluid.

map senser still good plenty of spark from the coil pack
it used to leak very little but now leaks a leter a weak.!it always leaks when i use it and my temperture goes up to normal, after i stop and the engine is warm already and i stop it it leaks loads of droplets of oil coming from the oil filter area.
pedal speed sensor on it? if so where is it located?
I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu. Aug. 24th it died out while I was driving down the hiway. Had Fuel pump replaced. Fine for about a week, started dying out again. Take foot of gas, the car eases forward on its own. Honest to God!
Just started doing this about 2 weeks ago- everytime I apply the brakes. It sounds like something is stuck or loose - but I looked underneath and nothing is stuck- but it just sounds like it.
Rear blinkes work fine, I just can't figure out why the fronts won't. A friend mentioned a ground or connection, is that something I can take care of myself or should I go to a shop?
we had the oil changed when it was due with synthetic oil as it says in the manual. two weeks later, the oil pressure light came on and then the engine light.
we parked the car and immediately called the tow truck to tow it back to the dealer. they are accusing me of driving without oil which I disclaimed because the triple a tow driver checked the oil and told us that it was full.
now i am faced with the possibility of having to pay for a new engine even though the car is under warranty. How could this happen ?
I was sitting in front of a house waiting for a friend with a full tank of gas, the gas gauge plumeted to empty and the check engine light came on. It did this for almost a week on and off and now the gas light is always on along with the check engine lights. Any suggestions? And also my passenger airbag is off.
Wife took the car to have an oil change 2 days ago. Auto shop also replaced the coolant. I need a list of possible symptoms to look for so I can diagnose the problem.
Auto zone ran a check and said its the shift solenoid valve....and that if one is out I may as well have both replaced. Any idea on a guestimated cost for this to be done?
