Question about Chevrolet Malibu
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.

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.

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.

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.
