I swaped some fuses out but it seem as its a short some where. the door choose to lock and unlock now on its own

My car is in the shop due to the check engine light being on. The guy I have been dealing with told me the camshaft position actuator valve, now he is only saying camshaft valve. Is this the same thing? And does the ECM have to be reprogrammed for it to work after that is replaced? A couple of the codes were P0013, P0014

I'm currently using Autolite XP but they seem to be giving me problems

Just started doing this a few days ago when it finally cranks over to start it runs great its a new starter

I was driving home last night. My 2012 chev. Malibu had a total lost of power. My speed guage has not been registering properly either here lately. Now my malibu just won't start at all.

My car makes like a rattle noise at the front wheels when going 60 and up miles. What are the possible problems with the vehicle?

My car all of a sudden turned off and it won't start. We turn the key and it wants to start but it doesn't. We think it may be the gas pump but we're not sure what the pressure should be.

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 ?


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...
