This could be a bad starter. Does it make a clicking sound when you turn the key? Does the engine sound like it wants to start but just wont? If the ignition switch is bad it could be the solution to your entire problem and it is not too hard to replace yourself. Please post with these answers. Thank you!

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its


There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

2005 chevy classic cranks but wont start already changed ignition modual what next has good fuel pressure please help


Do you have any vehicle knowledge or experience?
Are you working in your driveway?
If so,why did you change the module? No parts get changed without an understanding of what they do, and some testing. Only change things when they fail a test.

There is no specific,"What Is Next". Every technician, has their own sequence they follow, when diagnosing an issue.

Problems starting


I own a 1998 Chevy Malibu personally, change the ignition switch I had the identical issue, the switch eventually stopped turning completely, my vehicle had to be towed!! Save yourself a headache, I got one from a junkyard for 2.00, but it had to be programmed for the vehicle, I would take it to a trusted shop or dealer.

2002 chevy malibu won't start


Does the starter make any noise or click when you turn the key to start? If it does not, chk. battery could be bad, and battery cables could be loose or corroded. If there good and clean and battery is good try tapping starter see if it will turn and start if it does or still clicks starter bad. It could be ignition switch if it does nothing at all, but if it clicks most likely its starter.
