2004 chevy malibu sometimes won't start without giving it gas

I recently bought a 2004 Chevy Malibu and it has started with no problems for 2 weeks then yesterday it wouldn't start it turned over acted like it was going to start or started briefly then died. After several attempts to start it I gave it gas while I it was turning over and it started just fine. I have driven it several times today and no problems. What could be causing this?

SOURCE: 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.

Cheak your fuse under the drivers side under the hood. Look in your manuel for fuel fuse. It looks like a little black box.

My 2001 Chevy Malibu won't start.. in September if


sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

Recently bought a 2003 Chevy Malibu. Great car. A couple of days ago it started making a "chirping" sound when in the car and more of a light click when you're outside. It's under the hood but couldn't...


well the chirp sounds like a belt problem but the light click is usualy the lifters try using a higher grade of gas,and hope its not a berring going in the water pump.

Just bought a chevy malibu 2009 wont start


Thats a BIG only problem. Did you ever hear it run?? Do you have the correct key? I would have a shop look at it, maybe the engines fried ,and that why you dont buy cars at an auction unless you know what you are doing.

2004 chevy malibu won't start up


I have an 04 Malibu and when I get hard starts when I'm in the car I just press the accelerator down about half way and it always starts right up, some times I have to hold the accelerator down a little after starting to stop it from stalling but it is rare.
