Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet Malibu ?
We have a 98 Malibu that turns over but won't start.I was told it might be the fuel pump.If I use a diagnostic meter,will a code show for a bad fuel pump?
A bad fuel pump will not necessarily show a code. If you have a throttle body try spraying a little bit of starter fluid into it. Then try to start the car. If you have it will be under under the air cleaner cover and kind of looks like a conventional carbureator. If it starts with starter fluid and then dies you have a bad fuel pump, or clogged fuel filter. The fuel pump will be in the fuel tank. Im not sure where your fuel filter would be.
