Same thing happened in my 03 Malibu-called Triple A. Before she sent anyone out, she told me to put the car in Neutral and try to start it-sure enough-and I was good to go. Try it maybe it will work. On my own, another freak thing, it wouldn't crank, pushed up on gear shift to make sure it was in park-I heard something click and it started. Sometimes it's the simplest. good luck.

That is a very good place to start. You and remove the alternator, and most auto parts stores will check it for you.

sounds like classic fuel pump problems ,or the flexible connection between the pump and the fuel outlet connection.

SOURCE: 2001 suburban wont crank,clicks under steering

Check battery conection first. Both posts on the battery terminal must be free of any debris or acid build up. Clean with baking soda and water. If it is the original battery then there is a chance that it may be going bad. You would still have lights but just not enough juice to start your truck. If the battery is new then the next thing would be your starter. Go in that order, cheapest first.

2010chevy Malibu with 4l cranks but won't start, why?

Most likely fuel system.
Verify by ether starting fluid spray in the air intake while starting.
if no fire, its ignition system.

2001 Chevrolet Malibu cranks but will not start and is also draining my battery have checked the fuses and filters and battery so far nothing can anyone help me?

the motor is cranking. that tells us you have a good starter and battery. now we need to see if the fuel pump works and if you have spark. what you need to do is turn the key to the start position and see if you hear a buzzing noise from the gas tank. if you hear a buzzing noise the pump is good. have to see if you have spark. is the check engine light on

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good

To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

2001 Malibu 3.1 starts then dies immediately. When I turn the key on the car will start, then die immediately, there is no security light on and the car has 3/4 tank of fuel. Also yesterday the heater...

this sounds like a crank position sensor issue, however check the condition of the battery and for tight battery connections first. The blower motor may be another issue, blower motor relay or a loose or burnt connection at the blower motor or the blower motor resistor and lastly a bad blower motor.

If your check engine light is on have the codes read. This may help you in finding the problem.

1997 chrysler town & country was cutting out,died,now wont start

you need to put a scanner on it and see what code comes up.
my guess would be the crank sensor which is very common .

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok

Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.

Hard starting and dies at times while driving.

ignition coil pack it intermitten.

also check the crank sensor and the main crank pulley, this is where the engine gets its firing orders from
