Question about Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

The check engine light on the dashboard will go on one day and two days later go off. Then a day or so later come back on again. Is this the time frame that is supposed to happen. The manual with the car does not indicate this type of pattern.

If the Check Engine Light (CEL) goes on and stays on, and than turns off, it still means you have a Trouble Code being put out by the ECM (Computer) but the fault i.e. bad Sensor or Component may not be happening all the time. You will need a OBD II Scanner ( On-Board Diagnostic II) to read the Trouble Code. You can have the code read for free at any AutoZone.

2005 Saturn vue 3.5 6 cylinders will not start. dashboard lights off except check engine light and power window lights. The car recently will not start while at a gas station. I called a tow truck and...


Sounds like you have someting pulling down the battery. If the battery is very old, take it to one of the auto parts store, like advance auto. They will check the battery and tell you if it is good or not. I had a battery in a truck ione time that started every day, but if it set 2 days it would not start it had a bad cell in it. Good luck.

1998 Ford Expedition check engine light binking on and off


Have someone who knows what they are doing try to pull the code, instead of erasing it and telling you it's fine. That is a no go. I would say lots of hesitation could have to do with the crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, etc.

Check engine light and knocked off rockers


Running rough and misfiring is usually a one or more bad spark plug wires. Don't go back to that dealer. Replace the wires or have your mechanic do it for you. If you replace them, take one off at a time and install the new one. If you put the wires back on in the wrong order, it will misfire.

I would have the front brakes checked and from what you are telling me you may have a warped rotor I do not know how many miles are on the car some cars have a reset after the oil change has been done to turn off the check engine light but if it keeps coming on take it to autozone and they will put it on a tester for free and then you will know what needs to be done
