I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu that will not start . I have had a problem with the anti theft system on the car, causing the car not to start.However, I have a new problem that appears not to be related to the anti theft, but not sure.

However I have checked the relay and fuses and they are all good. What else could it

I have a strange problem with my 2004 chevy cavalier. I just replaced the alternator and now the car won't stay running. After the 1st try at starting it failed, on the 2nd attempt it fired, run a second or two then died. It is acting like it is not getting any fuel. The car was working fine prior to the alternator going bad. I've done some checking and the problem looks like it might be the theft deterrent system, but the 'theft' light is not flashing. Any ideas?

My daughters 1999 Jetta GL, 2.0 liter AEG engine, has trouble starting after refueling. After that, it starts fine. I have been getting a trouble code for evap emission control system malfunction.

My overdrive light starts flashing as soon as I put my car in drive and the check engine light has come back on, but not when I initially start the vehicle(the overdrive light).

My truck is a '93 Chevy Suburban, K1500 with a little more than 207,000 miles on the odometer. I have an intermittant no-start problem. I replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump relay. Most of the time it starts just fine. Once in a while it just cranks but won't start. During on episode, it was very cold (15 below zero for lows and 15 degrees above for a high a few days) so I added some fuel system antifreeze to the fuel tank.
