SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu. The check engine

"This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine."
Hope that helps..

I would've started with the coil packs, modules, boots and plugs myself. They give many problems on the quad 4s?.

{: ) Code P0010 refers to a fault at the Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit Bank 1. This code will set if the ECM (Engine Control Module) detects that the commanded state of the driver and the actual state of the control circuit do not match for greater than 3 s.
The service procedure requires close monitoring with a scan tool. Well it may be too technical for you, but simply put, it may require replacing the CMP actuator solenoid valve if it fails the component test. If the component is found to be okay, the circuit and wirings should be checked for possible shorts or open, and also the signal performance. If all circuit tests proved normal, a replacement ECM may be recommended.
If the engine light and code is consistently present, most likely it's the actuator solenoid valve. Check it out with your trusted mechanic. Goodluck.

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its


There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

Asking about timing chain


I'm going to assume you have the V6 engine. I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer to cause the check engine light to come on.
It could be a problem with the cam or crank sensor.

Need a water pump, can't locate. also check engine light on, just had a tune-up.


Didn't specify what engine but if its the 4 cyl water pump is pulley driven from a belt and is easily seen and changed. If you have the 6 cylinder you will be going into the timing chains as the pump is driven by a chain. Not a do-it-yourself job.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu that has a coolant leak. The leak seem to be coming from underneath the fan belt end of the motor. As soon as I put water in the coolant jug it leaks on the ground.


Check the lower radiator hoses for a leak and the lower part of the radiator itself for a leak. Also, check your engine oil level and make sure you don't have water in your engine oil. If you do, you have most likely lost one of the timing chain guides and the chain has worn a hole in the front cover of the engine or the block has cracked. Another possible problem location could be the water pump leaking at the forward seal.

2000 Chevy Malibu- check engine light


Have the DIS module checked and the coil pack for cyl 3. If either/both of those need replaced, have it done and have the codes cleared. Then see if it clears the others.

You may need a TPS (throttle position sensor) as well.

Where is the water pump located on a 1998 chevy malibu 4 cyl?


It is located at the rear of the engine between the timing cover and exhaust manifold. You will have to remove the manifold to ge to pump. It runs off the timing chain. It would be a wise decision to take to an experienced mechanic.
