Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

I have a 94 chevy k1500 blazer. i changed the throttle positioning sensor because it was turning of on me and the idle was very low. Now i test drove it for an hour and the truck still turns off. I need to know what else can i fix or check. Im thinking its the starter getting hot and turns the truck off.

I would check the ignition module. Take it to a major auto parts store and ask if they have a testor for it. Just takes some time to check and its free. Its located on the back of the cap on the distributor. The coil you can test at home if you have a meter, just ask the store what the resistances are.

The problem could be the ignition coil shutting down on you after it gets hot. If you have to wait till it cools down in order to restart it, a coil might be suspect.

What does it mean when code p1516 shows up on a06 chevy impala


There is a service bulletin on this for some Chevy trucks, may include your model of car. I would check with Chevy to be sure.
The code means the computer has received a reading from the throttle position sensor that is out of range and not what it should be.
The throttle actuator control module would need to be tested to proceed.

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

throttle position sensor, or check to make sure you have vacume going to the map sensor. Alot of times the outlet on the throttle body gets plugged and there is no vacume at the map--causes it to die. unplug the throttle position sensor and then rev it up and see if its better.
