I hate to say this but the bearings may have seazed and frozen up on their jurnals due to the lack of oil. the engines only holds five quarts to start with,so it could not have been getting any oil if it was three quarrts low. Sorry.   Engine likely no longer usuable w/o changing the bearings and crank.

Smoking starter


when mounting a chevy starter you must shim it down so it wont lock up when the bendix hits the flywheel..if it binds up it will burn up..there are different thicknesses of shims that fit between the block and the starter nose cone..use one or a combination of these to shim down enough that it wont drag..shim too far and it will spin out..I have owned chevys for years and have yet to see one that did not need shimmed down..these shims fit over the mounting bolts on the starter..

Chevy 2002 Malibu ERG valve


Symptoms of a bad EGR valve are usually stumbling idle or the engine stalling when the car is warm (normal operating temperature). Find the EGR valve and locate the vacuum line attached to it. Start the engine cold and wait for it to warm up. When the engine starts to stumble, pull off the vacuum line. If the EGR is bad, the engine idle will stabilize and no longer stumble.

2007 chevy cobalt I went through water wont start


You're hydrolocked. Pull the sparkplugs out and crank the engine for 30-60 secs. there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE you could have done some major internal damage. Be prepared to replace your engine, but this might work.

2003 chevy malibu wont start


If you have spark, and fuel , and still no start, I'd first pull out the spark plugs and make sure they are not fuel fouled. Dry or replace as necessary. Do you have compression ?
