    The chevy malibu will also **** gas really bad if your radiator sensor is failing this will cause your car not to start up either i only know this because my car wouldnt start i thought my fuel pump was bad the sensor tells your fuel injectors how much gas you should be needing if the radiator sensor is bad change it soon just check your hot/cold reading if it goes up and back down and stays down then it is bad.

Sounds like an antitheft system malfunction - check to see if light stays on after you remove the key

Well if the car ran when you added fuel to the throttle body it sounds like a fuel problem. i had a similar problem with my 98 malibu. i would check the fuel pump and fuel filter or check for a fuel leak. as far as the codes i have no idea. if the car wont even turn over then it is a problem with the ignition or starter

I ran out of gas and now car wont start


You should look for a gas container, go to the nearest gas station, fill it, get back to your car and por the content of your gas container in the refill point of your car. If you don't have a gas container available, maybe you can buy one at the gas station.
Actually make, model and year of your car makes no difference to solve thei sad issue.
Some gas stations won't sell you gas in a container. In this case you should call a towing service and take your car to the gas station.

Hi, you may have it flooded. Try holding the accelerator all the way down while cranking the engine to clear the gas out. Let us know if this doesn't work, and thanks for using FixYa.

I was driving my car and it ran out of gas its a 98 chevy malibu so then i put gas in the car and now it wont start it'll it wascranking up but now it starts to crank up and doesnt crank up all the way...


You might want to have your fuel filter replaced. When you run a tank that low, the fuel pickup takes in debris and sediment on the bottom of the tank, which may be clogging the filter, preventing gas from flowing.

98 chevy malibu, car wont start after i turn it off (like stopping at the gas station). then if i turn it over it will fire but die right away. normally i have to let it sit for 10 min or so b4 it will...


This is the anti-theft PASSLOCK system. You can purchase a paslock 2 bypass system that will bypass the anti-theft othewise you will have to wait the 10 minutes with the key on the ON position and turn over immediately when anti-theft light turns off

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....


Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.
