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.

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





Attention GM 3.1L 3.4L and 3.5L Engine Owners
Newer versions of these engines don't make this sound because they have a special insulation in the block.

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement
Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4) Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD. In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004 Buick Century. This is a common point of failure on General Motors' 3.1L, 3.4L, and 3.8L V6 engines, which are used in a large number of passenger cars across most of GM's model lines. *** DIY POSSIBLE, BUT TOUGH *** This repair task should only be attempted by advanced DIYers. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please read the disclaimer text at the start of the video before attempting anything shown therein. Take your time, take care, and be safe! About the "Fix It Right!" video series: "Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment. We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment, and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly, and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

UPDATE: FIXED** '01 Chevy Malibu - Check Engine (low power, vibrating/shaking)
UPDATE: FIXED** Let me begin by saying that if you have these symptoms it is better to scrap the car or sell it as inoperable. The repairs were extensive and costly, but luckily it was covered under my extended warranty. The following repairs/problems were fixed: 1. rocker arm stripped - New Rocker Arm 2. leaking valves - Valve Job 3. head gasket - Head Gasket Replaced (it wasn't blown...idk why they replaced it) 4. Several seals/gaskets replaced and a rod assembly are also included in the repair report. Sorry if this information is vague, the report is very hard to interpret. Symptoms: 1. Engine lacks power 2. Entire car/engine shakes (especially when at a standstill in "D") 3. Makes a diesel-like noise and sounds like it will die 4. Check Engine light on 5. Possibly leaky muffler? This is a 1999 Chevy Malibu with the 3.1 V6 and the 4-speed auto transmission. It has 58,500 miles on the odometer. ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED! I was thinking it could be the catalytic converter or maybe a cracked distributor cap. I'm taking it to the dealer on Monday on extended warranty, but I've never trusted them and never will.

American Aston Martin? '66 Malibu: /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • ENZO MORALES A long wheelbase, v8 or v12 power, front engine/rear drive configuration, and a sport-tuned suspension with four comfy seats inside. That ladies and gentlemen is the recipe for any good grand touring car. Modern automobiles like the Mercedes-Benz CL63, BMW M6 and the Bentley Continental GT are perfect examples of this. How about a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu though - what about that? When released in 1966, this 2nd generation Chevelle was nothing more than a mid-priced, nicely appointed people mover with some decent styling. However now, some 47 years later, owner Enzo Morales has transformed this particular car into a jaw-dropping, hardcore styled road burner that is just as happy running the super-slab at triple digits as it is carving up your favorite back road.
