Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

What is the sign of a failing water pump? My wife's 2005 Chevy Malibu starts to give whirling noise from the engine chamber, but I am not entirely sure it is the water pump - after all it has only 38k miles on it.

Your converter may be failing again, and this can be caused by coolant leaking into combution chamber (bad head gasket), worn engine parts such as rings, or using certain additives in the fuel.

Leaking around the water pump area on engine block or frame causing loss of coolant and sometimes overheating. You need to get it fixed before it causing major damage.

Does a 2000 chevy malibu have a fuel reset button and where? it just died while at a stop sign, so we thought it was out of gas. we put gas in and it still will not start.


Hello mellissa, the 2000 malibu does not have a fuel reset switch. Check the fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood. Check for fuel pressure. You should be able to hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position....Your fuel pump might have failed.
I hope this helps.

My 1998 chevy malibu wont start after overheating with smoke why


If the engine was overheated, you most likely have a cracked cylinder head and/or a blown head gasket. The reason it won't start is because there is angine coolant getting in the combution chambers. (You cannot run the engine on antifreeze)

Sounds like a bad wheel bearing to me. Try slightly turning to the left than to the right when the noise begins. If it changes pitch, than it is most probably a bad wheel bearing.

Whirling Noise


Sounds like fuel pump pressurizing the fuel system. They do that for 2-3 seconds and then it stops (for fuel injected vehicles).
