The main reasons that an engine runs hot are:
1. the thermostat is faulty( not opening)
2. the radiator is blocked
3. the water pump is faulty
you will have to find which one of these is the problem before you can do anything, other problem could be a blown head gasket ....hope this helps.....cheers

2001 chevy malibu fuel pump fuse keeps blowing


Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu the overflow bucket keeps losing tha fluid and running hot but I don't see anything on the ground


could be leaking while your driving down the road. check the bottom of the hood and see if the cooling pump is spraying the coolant around(the coolant that comes Chevys is sometimes very corosive to the aluminum parts in your coolant system). should be a wet spot by were your belts are if the pump is leaking. try fushing your coolant.

Malibu won't start


This sound different again, I am thinking, since there is a valve (controlled by on board theft system) to shut off the fuel that there is the problem area, but just dirt, you know, the usual stuff.
I do know that car runs very shortly if theft system kicks in, maybe it kicked in but valve does not quite close?
Make sure you do your 10 minute routine to disable the theft system

2001 chevy malibu- when car starts cooling fans do not come on but then do


your coolant temp sensor on the engine block is probably faulty, however, keep in mind that if it really isn't all that hot outside they may not need to turn on. Once you activate the A/C the fans come on automatically since they have to cool the condensor...

If your car is not overheating do not worry about it.
