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.

Newer versions of these engines don't make this sound because they have a special insulation in the block.

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

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.

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 Won't Start - Anti-Theft, Security Flaw
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... Peace Out, Tom
