Had the same problem drove me nuts until I tried disconnecting Mass Air Flow Sensor, the car should drive normally but with a "Service Engine Soon Light" on. Mass air flow can run from $140 up, picked one up at recycler for $40.

Worth a try.

How do you adjust the emergency brakes on a 2005 MAlibu Maxx?

On most vehicles you just apply the e-brake then disengage it repete over and over until you start to feel resistance then set the brake until it feels right and try it out. Some vehicles though you just need to roll backwards slowly then try to set the e-brake, repete until it feels right. Good luck.

Lead wire from left battery that goes to alternator makes the battery start smoking like its going to blow up. if I un plug alternator batteries will not charge. lite on dash says check gages.

Start the vech and take of the pos ternimal from battery and if it stays running means the alt is good but if it shuts down the alt may be U/S.Make sure everything is turned off.

Good fuel pressure. engine turns will not start. runs if primed through trottle body.

Replace the fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum. This is the No. 1 problem for hard starting with the 4.3 L engine. It leaks fuel and loses fuel pressure when sitting for a few hours. You can try to cycle starter for a split second without cranking wait 3 seconds the turn key OFF then repete 3 times then tryto start. This will build up lossed fuel pressure and verify leaky fuel pressure regulator. Joe ASE Master Tech
