Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
My Malibu starts up fine but only runs for 5 seconds. If you hit the gas it boggs out and if you dont tough the gas it dies too. I pulled the gas tank and took apart the fuel pump and cleaned the dirty fuel filter but it didn't help. I replaced the battery and had the altinator checked and it is fine. I was wondering if it could be an electrical problem. What is the proper ohm reading for the coil pack? What is the proper fuel pressure at the fuel rail with the key on? I don't want to put a $400 fuel pump in if it isn't the problem. Sensors might do it as well too right? HELP PLEASE !!!
It sounds like your air fuel mixture might be off by a little bit. The problem may not be in the fuel lines but the injectors theselves (if it applies. Hard to tell when the carburetor went out of style now a days) I would try to clean the injectors with a fuel cleaner and also to consult a Chilton book. That there is $15 of worth it. It will tell you all you need to know. If not then you could always contact a dealer and they will order you a service shop manual on that specific make, model and year.
