Starter stays engaged on my 06 Chevy Malibu


There are a few possibilities...
  1. Starter improperly shimmed and is biding to flywheel.
  2. Starter or flywheel teeth worn causing binding (not likely)
  3. Starter solenoid return spring broken.
  4. Ignition switch problem causing starter to stay powered after key released.

When i try to start the engine it won't start, but the starter keeps running.


Yes starter is spinning but it has to be engaged.Its not engaging.The problem is with starter system.Get the flywheel checked.
Its suggested to get the starter system removed and checked. If all checked ok,then it can be fuel or ignition issue.

Starter staying engaged after starting on 2005 malibu ls


check to engagement wire at the starter, make sure that power is only present when key is in the start position.if this is the case, then your sarter bendix is hanging up on the flywheel, this is caused by either inproper shiming where the starter is bolted to the block, or having the wrong bendix on the starter, there or several different bendix s general motors uses, also if the return spring in the solonoid is broken or not strong enough the starter could hang up. if the problem is power continuing to feed the solonoid with the key in the run position you could have a bad or out of adjustment ignition switch, since the power feeds the solonoid directly from the ignition switch, other than the neutral switch on the colomn

2008 malibu classic won't start


Grab a test light go down to the starter, hook to a good ground and probe the battery cable. If that has power probe the solenoid engage wire( its the little one) have a helper turn the key to start if that gets power replace the starter.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is having starting problem. It turns over but won't start unless I floor the gas pedal. Once she's running, she runs like a charm. She starts right up when I'm driving running errands....


all cars have automatic choke system when the engine is cold the choke is automaticall at onn

you must have noticed that when the car was ok and was cold started it use to stay at high rpm and after its warm the rpm reduces

so get your choke settings checked or needs some part to change in the choke system

My sentra takes about 4mins to start in the morning.


Check the fuel system. make sure that the fuel filter is clean and working. Also check the choke settings. It seems that the choke is not engaging. try to press the accelerator all the way to the floor before starting the car.This will engage the choke. Then push it at least half the way down and try to start it. If not , the choke is the problem.

2005 chevy malibu won't start


You will need to Check the Fuel Pump and Relays, and also Change the Fuel Filter. There is a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood that has the Fuel Pump Relay in it.
