Chevrolet Malibu QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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?????

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?
I have a 2000 chevy malibu the radio is stuck in LOC mode I got these numbers when I pushed the 2 & 3 preset buttons 382 then when I pushed the am/fm buttom the other numbers were 393 if that"s any help
Happens all the time for last few weeks. Started at freeway speeds, now even at 25-30 mph.
pressure goes to a higher pressure reading how do i repair and what happened just changed oil now this happens any help would be greatly appreciated
Mechanic advised to trade/sell the car because of aluminum and possible cost of repairs. Thoughts?
recieving code PO303

cost to replace tensioner only
car is a ls with electric steering
it only happens now and agian but its getting a little worse think its something to do with the fuel injectors but not really sure.
I'm DYI-ing a coolant flush, just need some help per this specific car, I get how to do it, just need help looking for the right things, ie the lower drain.
Had fixed while still under warranty. No longer have warranty. What could be causing this. Also, when the green light goes off, the a/c does not work. Fan does, but not cool air. You might guess, it is worse when weather is hotter. LOL
When I accelerate the car sputters and can't seem to shift to the next gear. The ESC is out is display and service traction control. If I ease off the gas it shifts and accelerate slugishly. I had it plugged in to read the error codes. I was told the O2 sensor or the cat converter need to be replaced.
Everything is working fine when I plug a little device used for music into the power port (the second cigarette lighter). It turns on but I don't have time to fuss with it. A minute later I notice it's turned off. I check my main cigarette lighter and it isn't working either. Then I realize that worst of all there is no air coming from any of my vents! I try turning the knob off and moving it 1 through 5, but no air is coming out at all. Not hot or cold.
When I press the button for A/C, the indicator lights up and I can hear the engine working a little harder the way it normally does when the A/C is turned on but still no air from the vents. The indicator lights for the buttons to switch from outside air to inside air also seems to light up. JUST NO AIR FLOW & CIGARETTE LIGHTERS DON'T WORK.
I figured it was just a fuse so I checked them all (except the larger, gray, square ones - I don't know how to check those) and they were all fine. There haven't been any symptoms that this system was having trouble, it just stopped working exactly as I described. And of course this happens when it's 100 degrees outside every day.
PLEASE HELP! I absolutely can NOT afford to just take it to just blindly take it to a shop It seems weird to me because I thought the cigarette lighters were different systems than the HVAC, but what do I know? I just pray it is an easy fix and not a major part replacement with a lot of labor involved.
