Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2006 Malibu 3.5 liter, engine stops while driving. Feels as if lost spark or fuel. Restarts right away, but dies again, and again.

I have been getting OBD Code P0107 which is low barometric pressure in the Intake Manifold. I have replaced the MAP sensor, MAF sensor. I observed the engine bay in total darkness looking for electrical arcs. None seen. I have jiggled the various wiring harnesses and the engine keep running with not a hickup. I have installed a new Coil Pack. No change. I am thinking a flaky fuel pump might be the cause. Too bad I don't have a clear tube in the cockpit so that I can observe fuel flow constantly. I replaced the MAP sensor (again) which sits on the top of the Intake Manifold at the back of the engine. Part# on the MAP sensor was 16212460 with 52171 below that number. I just returned from a 50 mile test drive and to my great surprise, the car is running GREAT, and the shifting is much smoother. It cost me $85.00 at the local Auto Parts store. I am praying that this will fix my problem as it was getting to the point I could not drive the car.

no engine state? or country.
all answers USA cars.

there are no less than 50 causes of stalls.

do you have tools? (meters and gauges and a scan tool)???
id bet not, right? so do say so...
so ill not list all 50 , cans send the list , have one. ask.

ill do the laws of physics, and for mr, otto cycle engine (gas)
1: lost 12vdc to EFI parts. and spark (raw dc power)
2: engine lacks compression. (cylinders) 50 ways to fail just here.
3: lost spark? , failed to do the 60k mile tune up, seems right now?
4: lost fuel or too much fuel. (complex , ask)
5: EGR main valve stuck open. ( clean it)
6: Cat melted, due to #4 too rich. (vacuum test fails, ask)
7; Loss of fresh air to engine , can cause #4 due to packed up air cleaner filtler or ISC air valve stuck closed.

Jeep starts once it warms up it will die out but will start up again it might take all day before it does again


the 4.0L I-6 inline 6, over 5 million made. (owned 3 for 500k miles)
it can only be 3 things, bad engine,bad spark, bad fueling.
(and others, EGR stuck etc)
but you never stated the GOOD,just bad.
does IT Have full power up hills , if it does start.? hot or cold power?
a key fact,
and key fact 2? can you save the stall, with a fast right foot.?????
stalls 101:
  1. never ever tuned up in decade. (most owners !)
  2. stalls for bad spark ,see #1
  3. stalls for lack of fuel, see #1 and new fuel filter.
  4. EGR stuck open engine will stall. (some 4Ll have no EGR)
  5. Lost fueling,
  6. Flooding

there are simple tests to find it, my guessing is fruitless waste.

ALL day no starts.
cranks robustly does it (guess yes)
(lost spark, test for lost spark x6 (and at coil)
lost fueling, Spark trips dry test.
flooding, spark tips dripping in raw fuel, test.

so ever get a tune up,or just driving it till it drops dead, like most do.

As driving along the engine skips/feels like its missing not firing properly


Hi I`m asuming its the k series engine.If so the most likely problem is the coil pack .
If you get a diagnosis ( code reader ) test done on it this will show the exact fault.which could save
money by taking away any guessing.
I hope i have been of help to you and you get the problem solved

02 6 liter Denali sputtered and died while driving on highway. Started once or twice afterward but than died again. Has fuel pressure at fuel rail when pressing schrader valve with key on. Cranks, will...


possibly 4 things 1 bad ignition coil heating up then breaking down,2 clogged fuel filter,3 weak fuel pump,4 bad throttle position sensor or map sensor to check sensors simply put on hand held scanner and look for codes. replace fuel filter replace coil pack along with tune up plugs wires put fuel pressure gauge to see if fuel pump is working properly

2004 Malibu Classic 2.2L died and won't start


You need 3 basic principles for your vehicle to start fuel/air, timing and spark. You stated it seems like there is no ignition at all. First, I would pull the easiest spark plug attach the plug wire and set it on the manifold and have someone crank your vehicle with you watching the plug to check for a spark you should have a white/blue spark which denotes a high voltage. Next i'd check for fuel pressure, if you have both i would get a obd (on board diagnostic)scanner and check for trouble codes with koeo (key on engine off) if that doesn't produce any codes check your fuses and most importantly if your oil level on the dipstick was dry its going somewhere whether its a leaking gasket a crack in the engine or blow by figure out where

1999 chevy malibu runs good and sporadically dies when driving


When does it shut off? Need more information to help. I had a similar problem, but it would happen when it was hot outside and the fuel was less than 3/4 a tank. It ended up that someone had put moth balls in my fuel tank and it was gumming up the fuel pump.

Replaced head gasket and intake gasket, redid timming, replaced injectors when driving down the road goto a stop it dies and i can restart the car then stop again it dies and restarts


It sounds like your not getting fuel you may want to get the map censore checked it controls the fuel and tells the fuel on which way to go. It sits on the top of the engine and its right hooks up to the injection system.
