SOURCE: how do you replace the starter in 1998 chevy malibu

The starter is very simple to replace, 1st always disconnect the battery, the wires at the starter are hot with 12 volts always present, remove the 2 attaching bolts for the starter to the engine block, then remove the wiring, one heavy cable and a bunch of smaller wires, one of those goes to the starter solenoid, mark it, the others are what are called fuse links and provide power to the rest of the car, clean up everything and then re-install in reverse order.

SOURCE: replacing spark plugs on a 2004 chevy malibu

2.2L Engine

  1. Observe the following service precautions:

    Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition OFF .
  3. Disconnect the Electronic Ignition (EI) module harness connector.
  4. Remove the spark plugs using a 5 / 8 inch spark plug socket.

To install:

WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  1. Inspect the gap on the new spark plugs, re-gap the plugs as required. The spark plug gap specification is 42 inch. (1.0 mm).
  2. Install the spark plugs and tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Apply dielectric compound to the spark plug boots and make sure no corrosion is present.
  4. Install the ignition coil housing to cam cover and attachment bolts.
  5. Tighten the ignition coil housing bolts to 89 inch. lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Connect the EI module harness connector. Push in until a click is heard and pull back to confirm a positive engagement.

SOURCE: dtc code p0121 and p2135 2007 chevy malibu

both codes refer to the throttle position sensor, the sensor is at the throttle plate, on the side of the throttle body. to test remove the connector to sensor, use a ohms meter to test. put 1 lead to top connection and the other to the bottom one. move throttle and the needles on the ohms meter should move very even, move throttle slow to get a good reading, needle should move without no hesitation, if the test is bad replace tps sensor. if the sensor gets to bad, it can have an effect on transmission shifting. after fixing sensor have the light turned of with an obd2 scanner.

SOURCE: change spark plugs on 1998 Malibu V6 3.1

on the 3.1, it is easier to change back plugs if you remove the coil packs. so you can reach the plugs from the top of engine. it almost seems impossible but this will work. it will give more room to work.

Have a misfire in cylinder 6 changed all coil packs all spark plugs stills says cylinder 6 misfire


A misfire could be caused by almost anything, spark--fuel--compression. Did you check for spark at number 6? All electrical components have voltage and ground, if problem on wiring circuit, replacing the component won't fix it.
Also, check for fuel injector pulse--proper fuel pressure and cylinder compression.
I don't know year--make--model, it didn't post for some reason?

How do i change the spark plugs in a 2003 chevy malibu?


On this model it has a 3.1 liter v-6 the coil pack is near the firewall and coil pairing (firing order) 1-4,2-5,3-6 the front cylinders are the easy to replace that 2,4,6 and the rears are 1,3,5 starting from the fan belt . suggest using your phone to take several pictures so you do not get the wires mixed up. most of the wires have a metal housing surrounding the plug boot this is to be installed on the new wires. as engines heat up and cool down this wires are like welded to the spark plug. so pulling and twisting the ends is normal (of coarse swearing is involved also) After replacing the spark plugs remember to put a silicone grease inside the spark plug boot for easier removal next time you decide to change the spark plugs

Just changed plugs and wires in my 1998 Chevy Malibu V6 3.1. Car now runs very rough and has no pick up at all. What is the proper firing order for this engine?


Firing order on 3.1L engine is 1-2-3-4-5-6. The ignition system is a waste-spark system, which uses 3 coil packs (1-4) (2-5) (3-6). Make sure that the paired cylinders' plug wires go to the same coil pack.
