2002 Malibu dies while driving

My 02 Malibu dies while I'm driving, on the highway, in town and just in the parking lot. I was told by a mechanic that my fuel pressure regulator is out, could this be causing it? It's also throwing 4 codes for my check engine light.

And why is the car not at a shop being diagnosed,
to find all of it's problems,so you can make some
decisions on the repair part

You don't use a vehicle with an engine light on

You have fault codes & system problems & can ruin
it, if you don't know what the codes are for

Yes it could. if you have four codes go to the auto parts store and have them scan the car for you. then they can tell you more about what the codes are telling you.

I recommend getting a repair manual from an auto store for your vehicle. They run $15 to $20. It will tell you exactly how to do everything you asked and also give you the values that should be expected. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2002 maxima check engine light came on

First thing I would do is make sure you battery cables have a flawless connection. I had a Honda with a similar problem. I changed the battery cable and it all went away. Like magic. Sometimes these can be a simple fix.

SOURCE: car dies when accelerate. do i need new fuel pump?

Hello;
It sounds from your description that the fuel pump is weak. To check the fuel pressure you need a fuel pressure test gauge for fuel injection. Attach the gauge to the test port schrader valve and turn the ignition to the on position. Record the reading. Now start the engine and record that reading. Unplug the pressure regulator vacuum line and record the reading.
The pump should have pressure with in specs but if low, start with the installation of a new complete pump. It is located in the fuel tank. Also replace your fuel filter.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks;

SOURCE: check engine light came on and now shifts hard from park to drive

The engine light is telling you, you have a transmission problem which sound like a shift solenoid. If you take the care to a local garage or dealer you can have them scan the vehicle for the problem code, which will tell you which solenoid is bad.

2001 Malibu died and now will not crank


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.

I just bought a 2003 Chevy Malibu LS I just made the first payment 10 days ago, now it won't start. It started just after making the payment, I pulled into the bank parking lot and it died; I thought...


Hello, I read your problem, and a lot of the symptoms you are describing seem like itmis possible, that you have a bad 02 sensor, this is part of your emissions, relating to the cadilac converter, it mostly acts up at lower speeds, like coming to a stop or slowing to make a corner. Sometimes also a bad fuel filter could cause this when rpms are down such as slowing or on corners. That is the two things I would check. Thanks mike

Jeep starts,clatters, then dies


If you had a blown head gasket you should have water/coolant all over or in your oil. Check your throttle positioning sensor according to specs in your haynes manual. My 02 jeep grand cherokee was chattering while I was driving and ended up dying on the highway and I coasted into this town and luckly an auto parts store was right there. I tested it and it cost me 70 dollars.
