I was wondering if anyone could possibly give any advice or help. I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu and I was having fuel trouble, I replaced the Fuel pump and fuel filter. It fixed the problem, but now Iíve come to another problem. Now my check engine light is one and it gives me the error: Fuel Tank Pressure Low Voltage. What is that? What's the problem? How do I fix this? I tried clearing the diagnostic codes but this code P0452 still comes up. Please help ASAP. Thanks

I've had a faulty turn signal in my malibu. It's not hard to change at all. I'm not sure what the part number is for the regulator but i was able to get mine at a salvage yard and replaced it and it's been fine for 3 years so far. You have to remove the cover that is covering the turn signal switch and the wiper switch. After that you may have to remove the air bag then it should allow you to have access to screws that hold the switch in place and the removal/installation is pretty simple.

Don't have an answer for you but until someone else comes along do a google search on "P0452 - Fuel Tank Pressure Low voltage". My guess is it could be someting with the fuel pressure regulator.
When was the fuel tank replaced and why did they think this was the problem?

Well my fuel pump went out a few days ago, i replaced my fuel pump and i also replaced my fuel filter. Everything runs fine, its just the check engine light came on so that's when i knew something else had went wrong. Ill do the search on the P0452 and also check the fuel pressure regulator.

Based on what you wrote about just replacing the fuel tank, I think you will be able to narrow down the problem once you do the search on P0452.

Byran - Thanks for the info. It was very helpful and exactly what I was looking for! If you don't mind, would you advise how the cover for the turn signal switch/wiper switch could be removed? Thank you!

Anyone have a clue whether the 05 - 3.5 litre is an interference or non interference type? For those who may not know what that means, an interference type engine will have problems with pistons hitting valves if a timing belt breaks. A non interference wont.

I don't know if it's interference or not, but I do know that it has a timing chain, not a rubber belt. So the likelihood of it breaking is very low so I don't think it really matters.

A chain drives the camshaft? I didnt know that! Are you sure?
