2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem

Every 3 or 4 days my malibu has a hard time starting. Takes several times of turning on and off before it finally starts. And the next day I have no problems at all. Had the auto-theft system and fuel pump replaced, and a tune-up. Just replaced the ignition module and still having problems. It has cut-off on me 2x while driving in 3 wks. Both times I just made a turn and it cut off when after I hit the gas. i have the same problem with my malibu every 3 or 4 days of hard starts but no stall while driving.

Sounds to me like you should check your battery and connections to it. Maybe they are dirty or corroded- not allowing full amperage to start your car or recharge the battery fully.

Just a relatively easy check and usually a no- cost fix!!!
Hope this helps you out!!

3.5l V6 Auto. Why is there no power at the fuel pump?


Just answered a similar question. Does it turn over? Either way, I would look for blown fuse and then check (usually) under the hood for a relay. You can some times test by taking another relay for lights or something not needed to run and switch them IF THEY ARE EXACTLY the same. If the pu,p works you will know.

all gm vehicles from 97-2005 have a theft system called the passlock system.

My 99 chevy malibu takes a while to start. it sounds like its trying to catch but it takes a couple of tries. someone told me it was the starter. does that sound right?is so where would it be located?


define trying to catch. is the engune turning over but sounding like it may start then finally does? or does the starter spin but the engine is not turning unless you turn the key to start a few times if it is the latter it could very well be the starter. check to see if you have an oil leak onto the starter. if it very greasey then you will need to adress the oil leak too. the starter is located on the lower right side of the engine. (passanger side.)

Problems starting


I own a 1998 Chevy Malibu personally, change the ignition switch I had the identical issue, the switch eventually stopped turning completely, my vehicle had to be towed!! Save yourself a headache, I got one from a junkyard for 2.00, but it had to be programmed for the vehicle, I would take it to a trusted shop or dealer.

2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem


sounds like its a gas problem. i would normally say its the pump but if you replaced it already then its not likely. i would look and see if there is anything in the tank clogging the pump. something may have got sucked up in there while you are turning.

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.
