Does the 2007 Malibu have a timing chain or belt? Also, what is the recommended service interval for changing plugs, 100,000 Miles? Getting ready to take a cross country trip in my friends car and he has lost the owner's manual. Car has 75,000 miles and I plan on changing the power belt, filters, oil, tanny fluid (never done), checking brake life and tire condition. Want to be sure we don't run into a problem with a timing belt issue. Thanks.


Your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain. There is no periodic maintenance schedule fr the timing chain.\015\012If your spark plugs have never been changed, now might be a perfect opportunity to change them. Ensure that you properly gap the ... 2007 Chevrolet Malibu SS Sedan New Cars

Changed the head gasket and timing belt on a 96 with 2.5 l doc. now it wont start. seems to be a timing issue, I can't see my timing mark with the timing light. Re aligned timing belt three times and am sure it's correct, still doesn't run. compression is between 170 to 182 psi. Cams are in the correct places, all the marks are lined up correctly. I Have fuel, and good spark. Resistence checked out on the crank and camshaft position sensors. I got continuity from them where the wiring ha


Remember that on a car's engine, the cams spin once for every revolution of the crank. It's possible that when you reassembled it, you put the distributor on 360 degrees out of phase. If you did so, the plugs would be firing on the exhaust stroke of ... Subaru Legacy

Hello, I have a 2003 iszuz rodeo with the 2.2. Car didn't run so i changed the timing belt. it started up but it ran poorly and had a top speed of about 30 mph. I removed the front o2 sensor and it ran better so i took it to an exhaust shop and they replaced the cat. When i got it back it ran better but there were still issues. On light to medium throttle it would run fine but any time you were taking off from a stop at full throttle it would really bog down like a bad missfire. but once it reac


Could be one of a number of things. Check fuel pump pressure, throttle position sensor, intake air temp sensor, MAP/MAF sensor, and look for a sticking EGR valve. ... Isuzu Rodeo

2004 kia optima. After a 5 minute stop at a store, I got into my car and it started jerking and died. It continues to do this whenever I slow down or stop. It had been running fine up to this point. No check engine light for code. Had timing belt and crank sensor changed 1 month ago, at that time alternator checked ok. Looking for possible issues and solutions.


Have check to see if your maf sensor might be dirty this sensor is located in the air intake it has two screws that hold it in place (make sure you scratch a little indentation to see which way it went )take it off wash it in alcohol scrub in the l ... 2004 Kia Optima

My daughters 2004 Pontiac Sunbird with the 2.2 ocassionaly wont start. She said when this no start condition happens the car turns over but sounds funny. It idles and runs out great. I have heard it hot and cold start and it started rite up every time. Her friend that heard the car when it wouldnt start said it sounded like a timing belt issue?? Any ideas?? If it were a timing belt issue wouldnt it do it all the time? Is there any way of checking the timing belt?


It would not run good at all if it was the timing belt. In fact it probably wouldn't even start at all. It sounds more like loose bolts on the starter or the tension pully that keeps the serpentine belt tight. That one has to be replaced. ... Pontiac Sunbird

I changed all 4 belts yesterday, Timing,alternator , compressor a/c orfan whatever. NOw it runs like ****, no power what so ever, runs always idlind at 1000 rpms. What happened. when I replaced timing belt I did NOT move anything,just put a new belt on. was I suppose to put the line on the belt to a certain spot? or just put belt on?


You think you didn't move anything...chances are something moved. Don't run the engine. Get a chilton or haynes manual and find the proper index locations for the pulleys and re-set the cam timing.Since the engine still runs, you may be able to ... 1987 Nissan Pickup

I have a 1991 G16a carby engine, and recently I changed the water pump, so I had to remove the timing belt. When I put everything back I set the timing at TDC on the crank pulley timing marks and had No1 cylinder correctly positioned on the combustion stroke. But now she runs great, then not, then ok, then bad. When it's bad it feels as though it's only running on 3 cylinders and yet all 4 are firing. Also, there is now a tappet rattle from the camshaft above No1 cylinder. Does the timing belt t

Fuel issues? Car idles sometimes for a few minutes and sometimes for a few seconds without dying. If I rev the engine alot i can drive it for a few minutes before it shuts off, otherwise it dies when i switch gears. I thought this was a fuel issue, so I changed the fuel pump three times, every time I changed it the car would run great for about a week. also changed the fuel filter, used fuel injector cleaner, cleaned my air filters and my mass air flow sensor, and changed the part in the tank th


Since changing the pump makes a difference even for a short time, I believe you are on the right track with that. What you need to do is determine why after changing the pump the problem re-appears. What you need to do is check the fuel pressure at t ... 1989 Chevrolet Camaro

IF I DO NOT CHANGE THE WATER PUMP IS THIS BAD FOR THE CAR IF IT'S RUNNING GOOD?


Well that is how I always sell a timing belt job also. The water pump is driven by the timing belt and it is very labor intensive to replace. I always replace the water pump also because you have to remove the timing belt to replace. I have had peopl ... 2004 Honda Accord

Changed timing belt on 2003 Kia Sorento 3.5 ,Timing marks are lined up.Engine starts up and runs smoothly BUT has no power..? If the timing was off by one tooth,Would the car start and run smoothly and still cause this problem? Ps,The belt did not brake,just was do to be changed.The car ran very well before...Thanks .Leland.


Being one tooth off on many engines will allow them to run well but lack power. In most cases you will find that the cam timing is retarded which changes the valve opening timing. When that happens, the engine will have gobs of low end power and will ... 2006 Kia Sorento

My 1985 Jetta with 1.8 gas engine quite suddenly started to run very rough with little power. I changed the fuel and air filters as well as the plugs,distributor cap and rotor and the wires. Any chance the timing belt slipped? The belt hasn't been changed in MANY miles and years. How do I check the timing to see if it is off? I can't find any timing references on-line.

You obviously need to replace your TPS, and you may need a new belt tensioner as well. On these cars the timing belt setup is not about no 1 cylinder being top dead center. Here are the proper steps to do a timing belt on this vehicle:\015\012 ... 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door

We took our perfect running 2000 VW Jetta TDI to a local mechanic for a timing belt change, which we knew it was due for. Now, after the belt change, the car will suddenly quit running and acts like it has no power. It will usually start back up, but this happens intermittently and it doesn't make sense. No matter if you give it gas or not, it just stops. Any suggestions?


When I took my 2000 VW Jetta VR6 into the shop to get something fixed, I mentioned I wanted my timing belt replaced as well (It was due.), the mechanic said that they don't have a belt, and that the have a chain on them, and they should last the life ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Just changed waterpump in our 1997 Elantra, has 147,400 miles also changed timing belt and thermostat and thermostat housing gasket where heater hoses are. New antifreeze, was running engine and checking the heat to make sure thermostat was working. Then we noticed a water leak, so we changed the thermo gasket and housing gaskets again.

I had the same problems exactly and I replaced the crank sensor, it is still acting like it wants to cut off. Like you said it runs great at night. I was told that it was the computer. I have not replaced it yet, because I really don't think that the ... 1996 Chrysler Cirrus
