Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

05 Chevy Malibu Maxx suddenly turns over and wont start...

But when I get it to the dealer, they say the fuel pump has electricity but when they get ready to check it, the car starts. I have been left high and dry three times... tried for an hour to start it... turns over and over and over.

Only thing i know is it is usually below 35 degrees... and both times by the time i got it to the dealer it was warmer. Other than that I dont know.

The dealer says the fuel pump gets electricity, but there's no gas coming out of it. But when they get ready to check it, the car starts! So they cant find anything wrong. The diagnostics show it's fine! HELP.

I cant afford a new pump on guesses!

    I have an 05 malibu maxx which seems to be doing the same thing. I'll be driving and its just cuts out. I went and got it diagnosed and nothing comes up. I'm going to change my map sensor and see if does anything. I dont think it has anything to do with the fuel pump. It would sputter if it were the pump...these new electronic everything cars...\

2004 Chevrolet Malibu mix v6 LS engine turns but will not start


Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

Hi I have a chevy malibu 05, it wont start when its hot already replaced the fuel pump and fuel fuse, still same problem


The next time it does't start check for spark at any of the sparkplugs if you have no spark then,check the crankshaft sensor for a signal if its good then its either the igniter or the ignition control module.

Im having problems with my 05 maxx..... electrical???


I would get all the electrical schematics and then look for problems like blown fuses affecting the areas you are describing. Then systematically troubleshoot the wiring. Simple.
Now, I am looking for the mentioned schematics on the web. I just bought (2010-01-28) a 2005 Malibu Maxx, and can't wait to have it ready for pickup in 2 days...

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.


Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?
