One of two things. The sensor is being bumped or dropped before it is installed. Or the ECM has gone bad and it is putting out to much drive voltage for the sensors. I suspect that the sensor is being dropped or bumped before or during installation. These sensors are very fragile before they are put in. The sensor voltage from the ECM should be 5.0 volts +- .05 volts.

I have a 2006 chevy malibu that needs a catalyst oxygen sensor replaced, as I was told by my mechanic. I'm in a pinch and would like to do it myself but I'm not positive which sensor is the catalyst...

Look at your catalytic Converter. there is a sensor plugged in after it. It's Plugged in the exhaust pipe immediately after the cat. Ask your mechanic "is the o2 sensor before the cat or after the cat." Im assuming in my answer that its the one after the cat.

99 chevy malibu wont start,changed fuel pump,ignition switch,crankshaft sensor ,igniton control module,starter & it still will not turn over im at my witts end dont know what to do

Do you have power at the starter? Give the starter direct power, to see if it's turning over. If not, then you have some internal problem, was the car flooded?

Location of shift censor on a 2000 chevy tahoe

There is no such part as a shift sensor, so I assume you mean the computer controlled shift solenoids. They are inside the transmission attached to the hydraulic control valve body, to access remove ****** pan.

I have a 2003 chevy malibu with 90,000 miles. i took it in for maintenance and the mechanic said that it was showing trouble code p0341. he said it was the cam sensor. yesterday when i went to start it, it...

if the cam sensor is bad, it will definitely not start. The cam shaft position sensor's function is: the engine speed and crankshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the crankshaft. note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with crank shaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine mangement systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle

2003 chevy malibu was going down the road car stared slowing down moter running but no throttle would it be throttle positioning censor or fuel pump

test the tps with either a meter or scan tool. You should see volts between .10v to 5v. the higher the volts the more open the throttle. Test the MAF sensor and look for stable volt signal by taping the meter while its probed. The signal should raise apon throttle without lag. like the tps. idle might be at 0.9 volts and 1.5 volts at 2k rpm etc.

My theft system keeps activating and thus disabling the my 2003 Malibu for 10 minutes while I wait to reset. Can this be solved or is there a way to disable the system?

cant be disabled. I would have the dealer or a good repair shop diagnose and recommend repairs. Could be key or the lock cylinder/ sensor problem

Where is the crank positioning sensor located on a 98 chevy malibu 4 cylinder

if a 2.2 four-cylinder, remove the starter motor. disconnect the 7x crankshaft position wiring and harness connector. remove crankshaft retaining bolt and withdraw sensor from engine block. replace the "O" ring and lightly lubricate it with new engine oil. installation is reverse of removal. have a good one !!

It dies out when im driving,and still has power

The crankshaft sensor is a common problem for your situation. When you have a problem, it won't start as the engine is hot. Open the hood, let it cool then you can start it again. Have a shop diagnose on the crank shaft sensor and replace it. Good luck.
