Still searching the right answer on Jag S TYPE- HIGH RPM PROBLEM - RPM won't pull back when foot taken off accelerator when coasting. RPM will match the running speed of vehicle. and stay the


Hi Richard, I'm not an expert on Jags, just a little jealous I don't have one. Looks like a very nice vehicle. Have a close look, inspecting all hoses and vacuum pipes on the intake manifold side of the engine for any damage or loose fitting. The problem seems to be a leakage of air which is raising the idle speed. Regards John

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.

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.

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!

I have a 2002 chevy malibu, however I had a similar problem with a ford taurus a few years ago.
Have a mechanic check the speed sensor and transmission. My taurus needed a new speed sensor when this happened to me. I can't remember the price range, however...
