Check that the Negative ground cable was hooked back up properly.
Sounds like a bad connection.

Changed water pump, car wont start


Starts everytime and shuts right down? Usually an indication of the security system. I had to bypass a 98 Malibu because of this. A lot of those era Chevys had problems. Check the videos on it. I don't know exactly what one your car has. 2005 impala security bypass YouTube

I have a 98 chevy malibu and when i turn the heater on the blower works fine but the air goes from hot to cold hot to cold every couple minutes. what might be the cause of this


First thing to look at is coolant level. It sounds like the coolant pump will push coolant to the heater core and then stops pumping because it has air because to low. If coolant level is full, the vanes on the coolant pump might be spinning on the shaft, in which case you will have to replace the pump.

Where is the crank position sensor on a 98 chevy malibu 2.4L? Also what is more apt to be bad, the crank position sensor or the camshaft position sensor?


If it is either sensor you will get a check engine light. So check this, A faulty fuel pump relay can cause the car to come to a complete stop while driving, its like running out of gas. It may be getting hot and shutting fuel pump down. Try swapping another relay of the same size, For the pump to see if its a bad relay. It may be is shutting the fuel pump down, when it gets hot.

1998 malibu can hear fuel pump wen switch is on but wont start as long as we put fuel in top of motor it will run till itruns out could it be relay on fuel pump changed filter


the fuel pump will run for 2 secondes with key on to prime system. then when you crank engine it should run all the time. you check fuse and if current go to fuel pump at tank connector. if there is current then the fuel pump must be defect.

After the waterpump was changed on my 98 Malibu the car is leaking oil and making a ticking noise. They tried to tell me it was the timing tensioner could that be true?


When you change a water pump on a vehicle with a timing belt
you change the tensioners & idler pulleys as well

Using the wrong oil & not changing it every 4000 miles or less
causes the tensioners to stick

My 98 chevy malibu is running a little hot. the heads are not cracked.changed the anti freeze.change the thermostate. what could be the problem


If your engine is running fine with no miss in it possibilities could be radiator fan or water pump if the radiator fan is working fine it could be the water pump. I have seen a water pump after removing it where the fins on the pump were completely worn out causing the overheating.Let me know how this turns out for you thanks.

Is changing the water pump on a 98 malibu 4cyl like a 7hr job?


The book time for 4 cylinder is 5.7 hours.The timing chain runs the water pump so this is a big job .If you do this make sure the timing chain is replaced also.
