Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
The lights are coming on, but the car is not starting up
Fuel, spark and air. You are missing one of them you need to test for spark ,and fuel crank the engine then go to the fuel injector rail on the rail is a cap remove the cap and you will see a shrader valve just like your tire valve stem use a pointy object like a screw driver and press does fuel come out if it just dribble out well you need to test for fuel pressure. Better yet have someone crank the vehicle and you should be able to hear the fuel pump get activated you you do trouble shoot for spark. Your system uses a crank sensor it that crank sensor fails you get no spark. or even the ignition module may have failed pull one of the plug wires let it touch body ground about 1/4 inches away have some one crank it you should see spark jump out. if you dont troubleshoot for no spark condition
