Son let his car run out of gas, and when he filled it this code appeared with rough idle and stalling code 2002

I had a something similar to this happen to a girlfriend of mine. She has a 98 escort and it ran out of gas and the service engine soon light came on after she filled it up. If this is what your talking about check your owners manual. Most of the time if there is really nothing wrong with car you can drive it around ( Generally 20 min in town and 10 on the hwy with 4 idle periods (4 times of the engine being at idle) - do not cut engine off) and the light will go off. The rough idle code most likely happened when the engine ran roughly because. it was running out of gas.

Does this malibu have an low fuel light to let one know its on empty.

Yes it does have a low fuel indicator light as standard equipment. I would like to caution you on running the car with the fuel level below 1/8 tank, it overheats the tiny electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank and greatly shortens it life span, it is a VERY expensive repair.

I filled my gas tank with regular gas and 5 mins later the check engine light came on and the low fuel light came on. I turned the car off and let it sit for an hour. I made sure the gas cap was on...

Im faily certain you have a problem with your fuel sending unit. Im not sure how common that is with Chevy Malibus but i replaced that in my 98 jeep cherokee and that did the trick.

I filled car with regular gas. 5 mins later the check engine light came on and low fuel light.

this indicates a problem with the fule level sender. the check engine light came on because computer saw a drop in the reading it expected like an open circuit. most likley will need the sender in tank replaced and tank has to come out to do it. not really a do it yourself repair working on the ground. let me know if i can be of further assistance

05 Malibu Classic won't start. Seems to be starving for gas. Have good charging system. I was on road traveling and car just stopped running.

Replace fuel pump, may be in the gas tank. Some cars have gas shut off in case of accident, this may have tripped, not sure where it is located on your car.

Gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

Check engine light is on

most of the time it is because the gas cap isn't on tight. Make sure it is and sometimes the light will go out in an hour or so. The loose cap tells the computer that there is a vapor leak which causes the warning light to come on..My car repair man told me this and it did take care of the problem. Hope this helps..
