 Approx a few months back i filled up my gas tank, as i started down the road my gas gauge went from full to empty and my fuel light came on and so did my engine check light. it did it several times throughtout the day. by the next day it was fine and has been fine up until about a week ago. the gas gauge is erratic and the engine line comes on. in 2007 when i bought the car i also had issues with it starting up and when i would shut it down it would continiousely stay crunked. i took it to the dealership and basically they gave me a document id#2001730 report that it was a normal condition. i still continue to have issues with my car starting. i started to do research on my car and see many complaints about these same issues. i did take it to the dealership and they say the fuel level sensor shorted out and i need to replace fuel pump. i see there is a recall on fuel pumps but apparently not for my vehicle in particular.

 I have only had my 2006 chevrolet malibu for 6 weeks, and i already am experiencing 3 major problems. 1. the fuel gauge will go wild anytime gas is added to the tank, and as the weeks have gone by it is less accurate. i only know when my gas tank is full or empty. i have no idea on anything in between. 2. when i will start the car the power steering will not come on with the car. i will have to turn the car off, remove the key and open and shut the door to register the next try as a truly new start. if you fail to open and close the door, the car does not completely power down so it will not recycle. 3. the power sterering assist will begin to lock up on me while driving, and i will have to fight the wheel to keep the car going straight. i have let go of the wheel once or twice and the wheel will turn enough in one direction to nearly do a uturn. if this were to happen when a driver was inattentive, im pretty sure it would cause one heck of a accident! the worst part is that the dealer i bought the car from had the car for 8 months, so they must have know about these defects and sold it to me anyways. the dealer put gas in the car before we did the paperwork. i know the guy saw the gas gauge going nuts, and that's why he insisted on being the one to drive the car to the gas station. i think they might have reset the computer to get the car to behave for test drives, because i had only put 40 miles on it before all this stuff started. certainly not a coincidence.

 Purchased a used malibu 2 years ago. my car is a 2006 model and now has over 120,000 miles on it. my car started having start- up problems. some days i would go and try to start my car and it would not start up. this went on off and on for about two months. finally i took the car to a shop to have checked. right away i was told the car needed a new fuel pump. the fuel pump was changed. about a week later, i picked up my car from the shop, i went to the market and when i came out of the store, the car would not start up. i called the shop back and had to have the car towed right back to the same shop. this car eventually ended up at the same mechanic shop three times, before i finally decided either the shop was not aware of the (right problem) and changed a fuel pump that was not necessary or i needed to find a more knowledgeable mechanic shop. after taking my car to another certified shop, i was told the mechanic could not find the problem. several hundred dollars later i am still stuck with a vehicle that will not start up everyday.

 Faulty gas gauge on my gm chevrolet malibu. i ran out of gas and was stranded just after the the low fuel light went on. i had never run out of gas and just previously during my drive the fuel level read between 1/8 and 1/4 full tank. so the fuel level reading indicated more fuel availability than was actually available in the tank. i probably only went 10 miles after the low fuel light went on and my car has good fuel economy. i think the reading was inaccurate. i have had multiple incidents of random fuel level reading while i was driving, with the low fuel light and bell going off, then later returning to another, not low fuel level, and the low fuel light going off again. this is very frustrating. i feel like i cannot trust the gauge and i reset my trip odometer on every fill-up so i can keep track of how many miles i've driven.

 Faulty gas gauge on my gm chevrolet malibu. i ran out of gas and was stranded just after the the low fuel light went on. i had never run out of gas and just previously during my drive the fuel level read between 1/8 and 1/4 full tank. so the fuel level reading indicated more fuel availability than was actually available in the tank. i probably only went 10 miles after the low fuel light went on and my car has good fuel economy. i think the reading was inaccurate. i have had multiple incidents of random fuel level reading while i was driving, with the low fuel light and bell going off, then later returning to another, not low fuel level, and the low fuel light going off again. this is very frustrating. i feel like i cannot trust the gauge and i reset my trip odometer on every fill-up so i can keep track of how many miles i've driven.

 The fuel gauge erratically jumps from full to empty and back to full. it does not properly display the fuel level. it is also causing an issue with emissions and the engine light. this has continued for over a year.

 Initially sometimes my car would crank up then die out seconds later now its happening quite often and most times won't crank up now. this has caused me to be late and docked from work. i've brought the car in 5 to 6 times the last time in 2/2009 they said they put in a new fuel pump cylinder but two days later i'd the same problem again. *tr
