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
Chevy 3.1 engine problem. Fuel pressure regulator
My moms 2000 Malibu started giving problems. Hard to start, loping and
dying at idle, loss of power, Smell of rotten eggs from the Exhaust, and the check engine light was on. I
located the problem. It was the Fuel regulator. This film is to tell of the
problems, and how to check and replace the regulator.
2000 Chevy Malibu MAF Ground problem
This is a good video on how to check sensor grounds using a voltmeter. Once
you get more comfortable with this type of testing, it is far more accurate
than the ohmmeter. The key though is to make sure the circuit you are
testing is "loaded".
Also to all of you "free diagnostics" parts supply companies. YOU CANNOT
CHANGE A PART BASED ON A TROUBLE CODE!!!!!
3.4L GM Pontiac... Piston slap???
Ok so I recorded this for smart heads to tell me whether this is the
infamous piston slap or what! Note, there is plenty of oil in the engine.
Notice that around 3:50 the noise completely stops.

2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1L rod knock
Vehicle had intake manifold gasket replaced, throttle body and IAC cleaned.
It then started stall while test driving, followed by starting to make this
noise. The day after this video was made, I moved the car into my driveway
and it stopped running for good, refusing to turn over. Once I opened it
up, found one of the pistons had disintegrated and a chunk of it got wedged
in the crank. I also found the head of a valve. My best guess right now is
that a valve seat dropped into the cylinder and started to rattle around
until it broke the valve, which then busted up the piston. The engine in
the car has since been replaced and now runs like a champ.
