a Gm doesn't leak fuel pressure at the regulator but more so the check balls inside the tank between the fuel pump and the line coming out......replace that double hump setup with a straight fuel hose and your good to go...

I've had similar problems for the past couple months. I've also had issues with the vehicle not starting right when it is "luke warm". It usually starts the second attempt, but struggles the first time. I have noticed that my gas cap isn't fitting appropriatly and that needs to be replaced. But EVERY time I fill up with gas, when i'm driving down the road after the gauge goes to empty and the low fuel indicator comes on. Some times when i'm driving it will build back up, sometimes it takes until I start the car next.
Did you have any luck in resolving this?
I have a Chilton Car manual and the trouble shooter section says that the fuel pump and or fuel filter may need to be replaced. I'm capable of both tasks, but Before I spend a few hundo on parts, i'd like to think that im' buying somethign that will actually solve the problem.

Did you ever figure out why your Malibou engine temperature gauge was not working? I am having similar problem now on my 04 Maxx.
#194 of 197 Trouble starting/engine stalling
Dec 10, 2012 (11:35 am)
I have been having trouble with my 2000 Malibu starting. It was working fine. Then my engine had problems, and I had to have the gaskets replaced, as well as the battery and some other parts. Now, it takes several tries to get the car to start. If I turn the key to the "on" position first and let all the lights come on and stop blinking (usually takes 10 or so seconds), the car will start the first time maybe around 70% of the time. Also, every once in a while, the engine stalls when I am driving it. It will restart immediately. I took it to the mechanics, but they couldn't reproduce the problem, so they couldn't diagnose it. What could be the problem?

There is a sensor on the ignition assembly, and a magnet in another part. We ended up replacing everything, key and all. We were reluctant to spend money, when we did not know it would fix the problem. But that did solve the problem. I would recommend getting all of this off of ebay, or Amazon.

I am having the same issues with my 2005 Chevy Classic. Have had the ignition replaced twice. I keep telling the dealer that the problem is the theft deterrent system, but what do I know, I'm a woman!!! Anyway, my key does not have the "+" stamped on it, and the dealer also keeps telling me that the system cannot be bypassed. Do you think your instructions will work on my vehicle? Any info would be GREATLY appreciated!
