Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
My 02 malibu recently had some repair work done to it because it was overheating. The repair shop ended up replacing the intake manifold gasket, water pump, and fuel injector o ring. When I got it back, I noticed a loss of power while accelerating-car would take forever to accelerate. I also noticed a slightly rough idle. Took it back and ended up having the catalytic converter replaced. That took care of the loss of power but my car was still idling roughly. Also, I noticed that at speeds above 40 mph there is a whirring sound reminiscent of a Star Wars Pod Racer that seems to be coming from underneath the car. Since then I've replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, and have used several fuel system cleaners but the problem is still apparent. Any ideas?
Where are you taking the car for repairs? try meineke sorry about the spelling, i had gone in there to check to see what the deal was with my car without even having it there the guy told me the issue, so since i was stuck at or close to another shope i got my parts from advance auto and had the other shop put them on. but with your acceleration and everything it sounds like some sort of sensor or a leak some where. pop yur hood while it is rinning and take a water spray bottle and spray around the the headers and stuff. and if you smell to much exhaust coming from the front end could be a smalll issue.
