Car has only 1300 miles. Is the LS model with the 1.5 L turbo engine.
Basically, car has been in and our of the shop for 6 long months. From YOUNG CHEVROLET, it went to a buddy of mines shop. He had it two months for nothing. Then to JON WATSON CHEVROLET. Anyway, this car is showing some slavish l electrical issues. How do I reset the system,
Only dr a couple wks & breaks again its the studs got done @ different places but still happen
not sure what to look at next
I have had software upgrades and 2 weeks later alarms returned. Accelerator Position Switch replaced and after 4 weeks alarms returned. Problem still persists. ECM P2138
what could it be, I would your help on what it could be or what should I do.
My 2013 Chevy Malibu has been losing coolant for a few months now, but when it leaks there's no sign of anything under the car where I've parked. Whenever it leaks ill add more coolant so the car doesnt overheat while driving. It will leak all coolant within 2-3 weeks. It stopped losing coolant for 2 months but just started back again. I heard this could be the head gasket leaking but other than that I haven't got a straight answer from anyone.
My car has been standing for about a year and a half. Battery terminals were corroded. I put jumpers on to the terminals and the positve lead from the solinoid to the alternator smoked. Disconnected it and reconnected the jumpers. This time all lights came on including horn and cooling fans. Any ideas as to what is common to all these to cause this problem.
Battery good I think it's the fuel pump but no sure if it's the fuel relay how can I tell which one it is ?
GOT THE CODES FROM SCANNER AND THIS IS WHAT IT GAVE ME CAN U TELL ME WHAT THE PROBLEM IS I'M GUESSING ITS THE REAR BATTERY , BATTERY UNDER THE HOOD GOT REPLACED 5 MONTHS AGO
I have a hole in my oil pan that leaks really bad I know the motor has to come out to change the pan, I'm just not sure how to take it out.
The tail pipe isnt spewing white smoke it has a lil smoke but it disappears after awhile. I actually posted. A question just like this one before but forgot to add all the water being gone from my radiator the next day. The regular water did get hot after awhile seem to be steaming from the cap. Its currently just water on the radiator no coolant. Car is not being drove.
Can it be blown head gaskets? I checked dipstick ,no water in oil and the tail pipe isn't spewing white smoke nor does it have a weird smell. The car does have front bumper damage from hitting a truck and did bend a little under the hood by radiator. i had a my dads friend look at it and he said my engine sounds great, 174,210 miles on it. I just orderd a code scanner because i already bought a radiator and it would be smart to know before i invest anymore money seeing that i don't have a car already. I let the car run for awhile like over 30 minites in idle and got in and reved the engine. It went up to like 4000 rpm and started stuttering and would not go past it. I checked the coolant which just has water in currently because i just acquired the car through a trade and its been sitting awhile. Water did get hot and it seemed pressurized when i was going to remove it after turning car off. I don't know much so any help would be appreciated. Hopefully thats enough info. And would a code reader tell me what this problem is?

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!
My car wont start it turns over but won't crank . first time it broke down wouldn't stay cranked I took it home parked it and had mechanic come look at it at first the machine showed ignition switch needs changing , throttle body sensor is bad and needs engine coolant , I changed the throttle body and the mass airflow sensor the check engine light was still on so I put it back on the machine in now it only shows the engine coolant , so I tried changing fuel pump because a mechanic said fuel not pumping to engine and car still won't crank somebody help me plz?
Why does the brake light go ofg when you press and release the energency brake.
The engine light is on and codes are P069E and P059F. Its says its the shutter. I found it on EBay but don't how to replace it.
Then next morning temp gauge went to red, back down to normal below normal then back up to red. Is this just the thermostat?
its a Malibu 2010
