I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS. It has "idle system high" reading on PC. I was told to replace idle control valve and that was a dead end. I then replaced the throttle position sensor and the problem still...


ECM might be sending the wrong signal to the Idle control Motor. Verify the signal into the motor. A vacuum leak can cause high idle also, listen for air leaks. Just thought of this, make sure something is not keeping the throttle plate stuck open. Debri or some other obstruction.

What's the sign of a bad cat converter on a 1999


If the cat is clogged, blocking exhaust flow, the car may start normally, and may run fine while the engine is cold. Within a few mins as engine warms it will start to bog down and die when you try to acellerate, even a little. May even die out if you give it gas, while it may idle just fine.
This has been my experice in 2 different cars of different types over the years.

99 Chevy Malibu belt chirping noise problem.


one or more of the pulley's is defective, most likely the tensioner pulley, but check them all for wear and side to side movement which indicates a worn bearing, this causes the belt to not run true and chirp.

Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop


Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.
