Any Chevy techs here? My '02 Malibu is having trouble getting started in the mornings. It cranks over fine and wants to run, but when you release the key it immediately dies. This will happen about five times, then it will start and run with no problems. It has 50,000 miles and is the V-6. The theft light is not flashing, the check-engine light is not on, and a code reader shows no codes stored.
Well lets see, I doubt it will be the ignition switch cause that might give the theft light, that's what it did with me. I also don't believe it's the fuel filter. Something could be loose or dirty maybe.
