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.
I don't know what's wrong, but if it's the same issue I had with the Grand Am, if you blip the gas before it dies, it should rev the engine up and prevent it from dying. Mine did this normally after the engine was already warmed up.
