Question about Chevrolet Malibu

2000 malibu jerks when driving.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu, sometimes when i hit the gas it sort of jerks and the engine seems to be running a little sluggish, kind of like its working too hard and sometimes holding it back. I'm thinking maybe the fuel injector or something. Any suggestions?

2001 Chevy Malibu hesitates after warming up? It seem more like a jerk or hestitation. When I release the gas, then press again it fine

The hesitation could be caused by your auto transmission. I'd check the fluid level first and smell it for a (strong) burnt odor. The fluid's color should be a sort of transparant reddish color. if the fluid is dark or brown, then there's a good chance of a severe tranny problem.
However, a fluid & filter change could also fix the problem.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere in the engine's intake manifold. Put a vacuum gauge to it.

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...

Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

It does it more uphill because the engine needs more fuel. Its starving. How about replacing the fuel filter.

Yes it could. But BEFORE you purchase an EGR valve I would look at this video AND read the comments at the bottom of the page.

It may not be the actual EGR valve.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like you might need to replace your motor mounts, or get a tier allignement done. The allignment you cannot do yourself but the motor mounts you can this requires you to place a jack under you engine and undoing the motor mounts then replace them and take away jack.

My 97 Chevy Malibu won't stay running.

there are two components that you should be looking at one is called a throttle position sensor and the other is a idle air control motor/valve.these two will make the car hard star or not start at all.the are both located in the general area of the intake manifold right where the throttle cable connects.
