Car wont stay started

99 chevy malibu lt 3.1. The the battery and alternator are good. the wires and plugs changed, oil & oil filter changed. Lower intake manifold was just repaired and so was the heatercore (replaced). The car will turn over and start and immediately shut down within a second or 2. what's odd is when i got it back from the mechanic it started fine for 4 days, then bam this happens. He came back out, got in it and it started right up (murphys law) it ran for 4 days again then the same issue again, it wont stay started. The theft system light doesnt come on as this happens but, the behavior is very similar...plz help ty.

Check the plug wire from the ignition coil to the distributor cap.
If you haven't already, replace the distributor cap and rotor.
The GM Vortec's have issues with moisture getting inside the cap and rotor and causing problems.

I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu wont stay running. Have replaced the battery and starter and had the alternator checked still wont stay running


as part of the solution i first must ask, is the check engine light on? if not, it may just be time for general maintenance (spark plugs, wires, throttle body cleaning, injector system cleaning). second, while running and running in idle, is the idle varying (continually reving up and down), rough, low or none of the above? answer back and i can help out a little more.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?


New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.
