Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
Could be many things.First i would check the fuel pressure regulator.Take the vacuum hose off of the regulator and look for fuel then check air intake tube coming from air filter box to the throttle body if there is any fuel laying in these areas replace fuel regulator.If they check out ok then take idle air control valve off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush.If problem still exists clean mass air flow sensor with a non-chlronated brake cleaner only.Whenever a sensor is removed or replaced reset the computer by pulling the ECM fuse then put it back.If problem still exist replaced the throttle position and reset the computer.The brake cleaner is cheaper than buying new sensors but,the throttle position can not be cleaned only replace it if needed.
