Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Car starts but dies

Im sorry maybe i was not asking the question right. I have a 2004 Malibu,it has a new fuel pump, and will not run long enough to get any codes. It starts perfectly but dies in seconds, with my MAC hand held hooked up it shows communication error after the car dies is that a crank sensor or is it something else? If you press the gas pedal it will rev once then dies every time any idea's ?

2004 grand am starts and dies, no security lite on


If the engine is actually starting and running for a very brief period of time before stopping it could be the fuel pump. A failing fuel pump can create enough pressure to get an engine started but not sustain it running. I had a Mercedes that required a new pump. This is how it started. Try turning the ignition to on several times and make the pump run several times. Then start the car and see if it runs longer before dying. If so I would see if there is any way to get a pressure check. Depending on the mileage it may be worth changing anyway.

Sounds like a start of a fuel pump. You would have to hook up a gauge to tell more. There is a specific fuel pressure specification for your vehicle.You should find out what code is in the computer.That is always a good starting place

2004 Chevy Malibu won't start and shakes when stopped at light


The next time it starts shaking and acting up its the time to have a fuel pressure test, or maybe if you can't remember the last time the fuel filter been chg. do that and see if it dosent run any better. Could be filter getting cloged up, or maybe pump getting weak and dosent show up until its run a while and has got warm.
