2005 Chevrolet Malibu 3.5. Engine is making a slapping noise.

Question edited for clarity. If the rocker arm was broken, it wouldn't run. The most likely cause is a worn timing chain. https://www.google.com/search?q=2005+chevrolet+malibu+3.5+timing+chain+replacement ..

Rear camber adjustment for leaning? For 05 malibu

To adjust the camber, loosen the inner lower control arm cam-bolt nuts and adjust the cam-bolt to the correct specification. You will need to safely raise the vehicle off the ground to make the adjustment, However you won't get a true reading of camber until the vehicle is back on the ground. I would suggest SMALL adjustments then get BOTH sides checked for the camber alignment. By twisting the bolts in the lower arm the offset collars on them shift the lower arm in and out to correct the camber.

2005 Chevy Malibu Anti-theft system indicator light

I just had this to happen to me - here's what you do - when it will not crank - turn your key over to ACC and let it stay on here for 15 minutes, the THEFT SYSTEM light will stop flashing. Turn your key back to OFF then turn it over as normal when starting and it will start right back up! Found it out from an auto store! One lady paid over $700 and then found this out!!!

sounds like you may have a bad fuel level sender problem. as for the check engine light coming on and storing a fault code that is a separate issue.

What fuse box is my lighter fuse in 2005 chevy malibu classic

The cigarette lighter fuse on your 2005 Chevy Malibu Classic is located at the rear end of the car. To access it, pop open the trunk and look for a fuse box on the driver side of the vehicle - it'll be under a carpeted cover. Remove the cover, then the lid of the fuse box, and you will find your lighter fluid in the middle on the bottom row.

My alternator is not gettin power on my 2005 chevy malibu

Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits with a voltmeter ? Your alternator is not getting power where ? The only place it gets power is at heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator . Battery positive voltage . The two wires in the connector are from the PCM / ECM - engine computer . Your vehicle has what is called a smart charging system . https://www.motor.com/magazinepdfs/042010_09.pdf Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop. Circuit Description The generator provides voltage to operate the vehicle's electrical system and to charge its battery. A magnetic field is created when current flows through the rotor. This field rotates as the rotor is driven by the engine, creating an AC voltage in the stator windings. The AC voltage is converted to DC by the rectifier bridge and is supplied to the electrical system at the battery terminal. When the engine is running, the generator turns on a signal to the generator from the powertrain control module (PCM), turning the regulator on. The generator's voltage regulator controls current to the rotor, thereby controlling the output voltage. The rotor current is proportional to the electrical pulse width supplied by the regulator. When the engine is started, the regulator senses generator rotation by detecting AC voltage at the stator through an internal wire. Once the engine is running, the regulator varies the field current by controlling the pulse width. This regulates the generator output voltage for proper battery charging and electrical system operation. The generator F terminal is connected internally to the voltage regulator and externally to the PCM. When the voltage regulator detects a charging system problem, it grounds this circuit to signal the PCM that a problem exists. The PCM monitors the generator field duty cycle signal circuit. This vehicle also has Load Shed System Electrical Power Management Electrical power management (EPM) is used to monitor and control the charging system and alert the driver of possible problems within the charging system. The EPM system makes the most efficient use of the generator output, improves the battery state-of-charge (SOC), refer to Battery Description and Operation , extends battery life, and manages system electrical loads. EPM has also been know as "load management" or "load-shed" in the past. EPM performs the following 3 functions: • Monitors battery voltage and estimates battery SOC • Takes corrective actions by boosting idle speed, reducing system electrical loads, and/or adjusting the generator regulated voltage control (RVC). • Perform diagnostics and informs the driver of charging system malfunctions The EPM algorithm is run any time the dash integration module (DIM) is awake, which includes engine running, key on, accessory mode, and retained accessory power (RAP). During this time the DIM continuously estimates the battery SOC based on battery voltage, estimated net amp hours, refer to Battery Description and Operation , battery capacity, initial SOC, and estimated battery temperature. Estimated battery temperature is a calculation based on key off time, engine run time, and the temperature reading provided by the engine control modules (ECM) air intake temperature or HVACs outside air temperature. When the EPM algorithm is running, the DIM calculates the net charge rate on the electrical system by making constant voltage measurements. It uses the measurements to calculate the charge rate in amp/hours. If the DIM detects a negative charge rate, equal to a discharge from the battery, EPM can request up to 3 levels of idle boost from the ECM, when the vehicle is in park or neutral, as well as up to 2 levels of load shedding for a total of 5 levels of corrective action to maintain proper vehicle electrical system operation. The DIM sends a serial data request to the PCM/ECM to increase the idle speed. The PCM/ECM then adjusts the idle speed by using a special program and idle speed ramp calculations in order to prevent driveability and safety concerns. The idle speed boost and cancel function will vary from vehicle to vehicle and from one moment to another on the same vehicle. This happens because the PCM/ECM responds to changes in the inputs from the sensors used to control the powertrain. In order to maintain Idle quality the ECM may not enter idle boost for up to 120 seconds, unless there is a manual change in throttle position. There is no set time limit for the idle decrease when the criteria has been met to exit idle boost, unless there is a manual change in throttle position. Important: The DIM also has responsibility for requesting up to 3 levels of idle boost from the ECM for the HVAC system based upon head pressure, vehicle speed, and engine running. EPM has priority over the HVAC system when requesting idle boost. However, idle boost will be maintained at the level the HVAC system requires, even though the exit criteria has been met for EPM.

I have a 2005 chevy Malibu. its not turning on. we checked the computer come to find out oil was in the gray connection of it. what do I do to fix it is there anything I can do to fix? will it damage?

You got another computer from where ? Was it programmed ? Anti-theft system key's programmed to new computer also ? Oil pressure switch is in the black connector - have seen bad oil pressure switch wick oil through the wire strands into the computer ,also bad coolant temp. sensor do the same thing .

I have an 05 Malibu Classic. It quit starting with no fuel pressure to the rail. I replaced the fuel pump and relay, and still had the same problem. I jumped the relay from the 87 to 30 terminal and it started right up. I switched the relay with the horn relay and the horn worked. What would cause this?

Did you have it checked for code's ? The PCM / ECM supply's Battery voltage to control ( energize ) the fuel pump relay . Using a voltmeter you can check for B+ voltage at pin 85 or 86 ,which ever one comes from the engine computer ,the other goes to ground . This is provided the anti-theft system light isn't lit . Watch this video on testing at the fuel pump relay GM vehicle's GM Fuel Pump Relay Testing
