    yes there is spark; My 2004 chevy malibu classic with 119,000 worked fine one day and the next didn't want to start. It spins straight whinny sound--no thump thump thump. Serp belt turning the wheels, sprayed ether in breather and nothing. When the key is turned to the on position there is no clicking or fuel pump sounds.

Hello i have a 04 chevy malibu 4 2.2 L . MY GAS NEEDLE JUMPS FROM E TO FULL AN WHEN I PUT GAS IN IT IT WONT CRANK UP. IT TAKES 5 MIN OR SO . PLEASE HELP DON'T HAVE NO MONEY TO WASTE ON THESE SHOP


1) Check the ohms reading from the sending unit. On the fuel pump there is a sending unit that sends the signal to the gauge for the level of fuel. On most cars you can get it separate from the fuel pump. Its either the sending unit that is messed up or the cluster.
2) As for the car not starting right away, go to link below:

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its


There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

I have 2004 Chevy Malibu classic, it acts like it wanna crank but won't. it will turn over but won't stay cranked up.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.
