0-60 in a 2001 Chevy Malibu
Actually, when I looked at the movie later on, it turned out to be more of a 0-70 run! The accelerator has to be feathered off the line due to the cold pavement and narrow snow tires. It is set up to shift about 300 RPM before red line under full throttle, as close as one would want to get with a car they have to use for their daily bread transportation, it helps with longevity. Kilometers are 213,000 or 132,000 miles. The car was in 3, not overdrive, thus the sharp eyed would notice the tachometer at 3000 RPM at 70. In overdrive, the RPM at this speed is just over 2000 RPM, giving nice, quiet and long-legged cruising.

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.
