Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
The quickest way to check to see if you have a fuel pump issue...since you said it blew the fuse, is after your battery has been trickle charged for at least a good six hours to insure "max voltage"..have someone spray some starter fluid in the intake manifold while you try and crank it, if it starts right away you probably have a bad fuel pump putting out low pressure, clogged injectors, or possibly a bad "ECM", check also to insure that the battery cables are extremely clean take a wire brush to them to clean them up if you have to an make sure there secured tightly to the battery. there is also the possibility that if you have never changed the spark plugs and the car has over 90k you might want to change them out also. And one last thing to check is all the plug wires at the coil packs and terminal post, remove them one at a time and make sure there is no corrosion on both the wire clip and the terminal post. i found corrorsion on two wires and the coil post once.. i cleaned it up and it ran good, but i decided to change them all out anyway. my car had 89k and you should have seen the condition of the spark plugs, all the electrodes were half worn away..i just bought it used and i took it for granted that the plugs would have been changed out by the previous owner. hope this will help you get closer to finding a fix! if i"ve been somewhat helpful could you rate this responce thanks..we here a fix ya love feedback, it helps us keep on going. thanks!
