This is related to 2001 Chevy Malibu I hopped in and it would not start. Sounded and acted like it was out of gas, or the fuel pump was bad, or there was no spark to fire the plugs. I googled for like 2 hours and found a solution, tried it and it worked! Turn the key to the "On" position for 10 - 15 minutes, turn it to the "Off" position for like 5 seconds (In the video I said 5 minute, but did not realize how PISSED OFF I was At CHEVY)... It worked. Second video was after the 11 minutes I waited, turned off for 5 seconds and then it started...

2000 Chevrolet Malibu 3.1L Engine Knock
I have a Malibu with what sounds like the famous piston slap, however it doesnt go away. I replaced the lifters because I had to replace a leaking intake gasket anyway. It has new plugs and wires and has always made the sound even before replacing them. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine however I am open to any and all diagnostics. Please leave a comment. Thanks

Automotive Robo Tech was called to a shop on a 2003 Chevy Van G2500, with a 4.8 liter engine, experiencing a security light on followed by a no start situation. For some reason, the shop replaced the crank sensor. Because is was a no start, they reason it was probably the crank sensor, and of course, it wasn't. They eventually saw the security light on, and figured out that it was a Pass-Lock system issue. They next replaced the Pass-Lock key cylinder, with no luck either. At this time, the shop decided to call me in for assistance. They simply didn't have to scan tool to access the BCM or body module for this problem.
When I arrived at the shop, the tech gave me a briefing on the vehicle, and also said that the vehicle would start once in a blue moon. Ok, that was probably some kind of clue. I started my diagnostic by performing a general code analysis. I did get code P1632, or Theft Deterrent Fuel Disable Signal Received from the BCM. There were no other codes present. I knew it wasn't the key cylinder, since it was already replaced. There are steps to take in all Pass Lock diagnostics before condemning a component.
In this particular GM, the signal from the ignition system is controlled by a resistor embedded in the Pass Lock module, which is part of the ignition switch cylinder. In these systems, any key that will allow the cylinder to be turned to the on position will work, the only condition that must be met is that the cylinder must be turned to a position where a magnet engages a hall effect switch, which connects the embedded resistor to the system, allowing the Body Control Module to read the signal value, on the yellow Pin A6 wire, and determine if the resistance value is correct.
I analyzed the Pass Lock calibration and determined that it was correct. So, why was this car not starting? I started to suspect an electrical or connector fault. So I decided to visually inspect the Pass Lock module and wiring. Everything looked normal, so I then decided to concentrate on the BCM. As I scanned the B C M data stream for clues, I saw that all of a sudden I lost communications.
Was the ECM defective? Or, was it an issue with the ...... Get the whole story right here, right now!.... Watch this video and see how it ends...
