Q: Car doesn't always start properly. on 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Cold or warm start this happens randomly. Turn the key over and it will either start partially then die immediately, sometimes it won't start at all unless I has the hell out of it.And then there's times it sounds like the starter/ignition sticks. Again it very random and most days its fine.
I have had similar problems with an 05 Malibu with no hatch. And it turned out to be a fuel pump. Please please please tell me that's not the case this time...

OK a shade tree mechanic with no special tools... sides the last time my cell came on it was because it wasn't running hot enough.. I think that's the same reason its on now. Whatever the code was.. lol
