Could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator., does the check engine light come on?
if it does you will have to get a scanner put on it to read the trouble code, if not then the problem could be the engine is not getting enough fuel.

2006 chevy malibu wont start unless i hit the gas pedal


it will be a good idea to clean injector. It's a good thinking to clean throttle body......never forget for good combustion you need AIR,good FUEL,and good spark
when you need to crack up the throttle plate to start means throttle body dirty and IAC valve dirty or not working properly
hope it helps

Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.

2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down


either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

Where is the fuel pump located on a chevy malibu


It's located in the gas tank and to replace it, your going to have to drop the gas tank.
Thank you for using fixya and if you are going to replace the fuel pump your self. Make sure you also replace the wire harness from the frame to the fuel pump.
