SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

SOURCE: bad knock sensor on 1998 chevy malibu 2.4L

The knock sensor is on the back side of the engine near the trans. It is round, with a 1 wire connector. You will have to get it from underneath. Good Luck.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu that idles high at 3,000 RPM and will not go back down.


sounds like your IAC went bad or sticking (idle air control) these get carboned up sometimes and stick, you can somwtimes remove them and clean them and the port it seals to with carb cleaner and rag, all else fails replace it

1998 5.7.Ltr ,plastic upper intake,alum bottom, fuel pressure regular vacum line connects to the regulator (spider) but where does the other end connect to???? lost can not find where the vacum goes to....


start the engine and get some o2 sensor safe throttle body cleaner, and ( be carefull not to squirt the sparkplug wires or coils) spray it on a cold engine while running while you listen for the rpm to change. what you are doing is when u spray into the area that is the vacuum leak it will( depending on the spray u use) either stumble and lower the rpms or it will rev higher for a few seconds. where ever you hear a difference in rpm, that is where u need to look for your connection. this is how we do it in our shop. good luck.

I cannot find the place to put r134a in my 1998 Chevy malibu ls


Follow the Accumulator (round silver cylinder) low pressure hose to the fire wall. You will find the low pressure service port valve just before the fire wall.

Make sure you don't over charge the system, add small amount at a time and check the temperature every 3 min to 5 min by placing the A/C on max with the engine at 2000 RPM.

Once the temperature coming out of the vents are cold as ice with the engine at 2000 RPM. stop charging. So turn the recharge valve on for 20 seconds and then off then rev the engine to 2000 RPM for 3 min and check the temperature at the vent.

Once the temperature is ice cold, stop and don't over charge the system. Over charging the system will cause the A/C compressor to shut down and at worst break, causing a $500.00 repair cost.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Cat or fuel pump problem?


have somebody rev the engine then go to the tailpipe and check if you have strong air comming out. if you have then its not the cat. if its the pump big chance is you cant even start the engine. check the air filter first then the fuel filter. i think youll find the problem there

I have a 2004 Chevy Malibu. Bogs down and stalls with acceleration. Check engine light flashes. Idols fine. Changed the MAP as it had a P0101 code along with the P0300. Changed the plugs 3 weeks ago and...


make sure you have ngk or ac delco iridium plugs installed. Also common problem on the 2.2L ecotec is the cat plugging. Easy check is to remove the front o2 sensor (very easy 22mm wrench) and start the car and rev it. If it revs freely now and does not bog the cat is plugged. They are covered fed. emissions warranty 8yr 80k, all gm dealers stock the cats for the 2.2 ecotec.
