2001 chevrolet malibu
When I put the coolant in resivour it leaks out very quickly from drivers side of block. Not on coolant pump side.
There is no code with it. The only codes popping up are for the O2 sensor that just gave out yesterday, and the chiming has been happening for a while. No lights to go with it, just the chime as soon as I cut the wheel after start up. Forward or backward; doesn't matter.
my wife heard a noise from the motor , i had it check out it was fine it still read nothing
it can be jump started by another car but drains the portable jump starter with no lights or clicks
Water leaks from top of engine.
I think it is the ignition..had part of it fixed a couple of years ago and was told the other will likely go as well. Anti theft is connected to the ignition... Phoned and was told it would be $400.00+ to repair. Is there anyway to have this done cheaper...I'm on foot until I can get this fixed.
Yesterday I got in it and it started up like it always does, went to work. Got in it at 5:00 and tried to turn the key and it sounded like it wanted to turn over, but wouldn't. Called AAA had it towed to my mechanic who was closed by that time. This morning I stopped by my mechanic and told him what happened. He just now called me & said it's the tumbler-anti-theft ignition switch. The entire assembly must be replaced. I can still use my keys however. $272 for parts & $200 labor. Approx. 3 hour job @ $65/hr. labor. I never had any type of warning at all, no lights came on...nothing. Not happy at all ~
Three of the four bolts (both sides) are seized and the heads are stripped.
