Question about 2009 Chevrolet Malibu
My car had problems starting 3 times. Today this light comes on. I took it to Advance and let them read my car with their machine. It showed 3 problems it could be which all involved the fuel pump. Right after that my tire indicator light came on, now the computor won't read the amount of air in my tires. Also, 2 weeks ago, my check air bag came on. Could this mean a chain reaction of problems? Does this necessrily mean I need a new fuel pump? I'm going to the garage tomorrow and I don't want to go knowing nothing. I'm broke and I'm panicing.

The auto parts store don't have specific code info for your car. The devices they use are very general. It's important to have the exact trouble code.

SOURCE: 01 IMPALA/ POOR ACCELERATION
I had the same issue with my 2001 impala not having any power...mine was the cat. convertor also but after I paid to have it fixed I went thru my glovebox & found a recall letter that I got years ago. If I would have read it first it would have been a free fix. I think as long as less than 120,000 miles on the car it would be done for free. You may want to call GM if you don't have this recall letter.

SOURCE: tire pressure monitor
32 psiis actually low for a 3500. I have a 1500 silverado that runs 44 psi cold. The tire inflation monitor , monitors inflated cirunference. Sooooo, If it isn'nt round enough, it will let you know. Driving warms up both the air and the tire,off course changing everything again. Pressure is up and tire is bigger. Ask me not how it can tell what is going on with the tire sitting still. I'm only on page 9,000, the answer is here somewher. :-) Well good luck. I do know the above is accurate._Ned_

it is possibly the throttle position sensor(tps) malfunctioning. basically the computer or "brain" of the car thinks the throttle is in a different position than it really is and automatically makes adjustments to fuel, air ect.... based on these false readings from the sensor thus causing the engine to react a little different when you expect to have power.
