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.

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.

P0325 Knock Sensor Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Wells website http://www.wellsve.com/ Wells YouTube (great videos I recommend you subscribe) http://www.youtube.com/user/markjhicks As you can see by the title this video covers the diagnosis and repair of a P0325 on my 1997 Subaru Legacy L model with 2.2L engine backed by an auto trans. I did have some trouble with the 'factory' diagnostic procedure but thankfully my friend Mark at Wells Electronics had a test that involved a voltage drop across the sensor that worked perfectly. I hope this video illustrates the import ants of understanding a circuit that you're diagnosing as opposed to just throwing parts at something, with a little time and effort you can do a proper diagnosis. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

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

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





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!!!!!

Picking the Honda Civic Ignition
This is not for illegal purposes! This is for locksport only! This is me picking the door lock and then the ignition switch to a 2002 Honda Civic. First I pick the ignition without the key near the sensor. The immobilizer check fails and the engine will not start. Then I turn the switch again with the correct key held close to the sensor to fool the electronics. You can see the security light shut off and the engine start like a charm.
