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

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Malibu:
UPDATE: FIXED** '01 Chevy Malibu - Check Engine (low power, vibrating/shaking)
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
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.
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
• 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.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the all new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO! The Malibu is first being
offered only in ECO trim with a 2.4L 4cyl engine paired with an electric
motor for increased efficiency. Later this year we will see the
introduction of both a standard 2.5L 4cyl and a 2.0L turbo engine to replace the V6 from the previous
gen. This vehicle also has navigation so I will be going over how to use
all of those features. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person
look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up,
performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build
quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
