My 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic will start up great but at times it will suddenly stop accelerating


Hi,
If all the lights are working and you don't think it is the battery or electrical, then it would be with fuel. The fuel pump could be going out but first check the spark plugs and wires.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/laura_08254539050d64db

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its


There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

You need 3 basic principles for your vehicle to start fuel/air, timing and spark. You stated it seems like there is no ignition at all. First, I would pull the easiest spark plug attach the plug wire and set it on the manifold and have someone crank your vehicle with you watching the plug to check for a spark you should have a white/blue spark which denotes a high voltage. Next i'd check for fuel pressure, if you have both i would get a obd (on board diagnostic)scanner and check for trouble codes with koeo (key on engine off) if that doesn't produce any codes check your fuses and most importantly if your oil level on the dipstick was dry its going somewhere whether its a leaking gasket a crack in the engine or blow by figure out where

2004 chevy malibu classic spark plug replacement


Search for the engine model ECOTec 2.2 rather then Malibu. It is very easy to replace the plugs, they are DEEP inside the engine so you will need a 6" socket extension for the spark plug socket. Needle nose pliers were required to retrieve the socket on the first plug. Don't push down hard on the plug, just enough to engage the nut. Full screen photo sequence is available at:
