The pump may be running dry. It lost it ability to prime itself. Only way to know foresure is to do a pressure test. Or spray quick start. If it starts then then pump is bad. If it does not fire then you have an ignition issue.

Does a 2000 chevy malibu have a fuel reset button and where? it just died while at a stop sign, so we thought it was out of gas. we put gas in and it still will not start.


Hello mellissa, the 2000 malibu does not have a fuel reset switch. Check the fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood. Check for fuel pressure. You should be able to hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position....Your fuel pump might have failed.
I hope this helps.

No fuel in motor. will not start


when you turn the ignition key to the on position you will hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds.
if not heard replace the oil pressure switch for the third wire on that sensor runs the fuel pump the first 5 seconds to start the engine. once pressure is operating at normal conditions the relay takes over on the pump to run

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.


Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?

Starts but quits


If the engine starts and then quits when you release the key to the ON position it could be the anti-theft systemhas locked out. Turn your key to the ON position and wait ten minutes until the ANTI-THEFT light on the dash board goes out. The car will now start and run if that was the problem.
