I have a gas leak on my 2007 malibu maxx i was told i need a fuel pump how is that possible

GM had a fuel pump module problem back in those years where the plastic broke , where the delivery hose hooked up to . This caused a substantial leak ,you can't really see the broke part till you drop the tank . I don't know if this was a problem on Malibu's ,I saw this on cobalt's . There was a Factory recall on some ! With a TSB - technical service bulletin ! I'd have a second opinion , call the dealer also .

My doorlocks lock and unlock while driving and so im afraid its ging to engage the security feature to shut down fuel pump.i don't have a key fob.

Hi Jason:

We've had similar problems with our Aztek and Buick.
The problem was with the Body Control Module and was beyond my fixit skills.
The local GM dealer attended to it for a cost of approx $1,000 per vehicle.
Definite PITA
Hope you have better luck.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu mix v6 LS engine turns but will not start

Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

After market fuel pump installed in 2004 malibu maxx why did the fuel gauge stop working?

it sounds like a problem with the sending unit. This is usually with the fuel pump itself. The wiring may not have been hooked up quite right or the sending unit may just be bad. That will cause the fuel gauge to stop working. The wiring harness for different cars is different and even varies sometimes just on year of the vehicle.

2004 Chevy Malibu. Cranks but won't start up. Where is the fuel pump located? Where is the fuel tank located?

The pump is in the tank, the tank is in the rear (follow the big hose from where you fill it up) but dont just go put a pump in, check fuel pressure and make sure the pump is indeed getting power before replacing it. I cant tell you how many people replace a pump for no reason. I would have a shop check it for you.
