Question about Chevrolet Malibu
Prime it from the engine with a brake bleeder if you can; otherwise floor it until it kicks (then let off the gas straightaway.) Until that pump gets primed, nothing's gonna happen; on the other hand, if you can smell gas that got through the exhaust system it's something else, like your spark coil deciding to fry itself from running dry, or a cracked distributor component (you can wire up a plug outside the engine to test the bad-coil theory. See OSHA for extra notes on how to do that, (cough) though your electronics package usually picks up on egregious stuff like that, if it were a more recent Malibu.
