What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Malibu:
chevrolet malibu engine shuddering !!
I have Chevrolet Malibu 2000 with a v6 3.1 sfi engine, and it has been like
one month and the engine started shuddering, it is becoming worst day by
day, I replaced the spark plugs, engine mountings, ignition coils, fuel
pump and I balanced tires, but still!! You can hear the weird sound from
the Exhaust, and the smell of the gas
coming out of the Exhaust is really
Btw, the engine does not shudders contentiously! I dunno how to describe
this, but it shudders then it stops then again it shudders then it stops!
it starts shuddering when i accelerate normally but if i pushed the pedal
to the limit the engine does not shudder!!
Please help me to figure out what is the problem with my engine!? I spent
more than 400$ trying to fix this problem!
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
1998 Malibu 3100 Magnaflow
What a Gm V6 SHOULD sound like. Notice that there is no pop/drone/rasp in
the sound. Magnaflow is THE best performance muffler/Exhaust for the money hands down. Lifetime
warranty, smooth deep sound, no drone and they actually make good power
gains. Stock piping, resonator delete with a 12225 muffler and 35168
American Aston Martin? '66 Malibu: /BIG MUSCLE
â€¢ 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.
