Chevy Malibu 2005

Asked by Feb 20, 2015 at 02:22 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought it today. When I turn the key it
acts like its not gonna start but if I turn
the key and then tap the gas it starts
perfectly. I mean I have an idea of what is
but really just need it spelled out for me.
Also what kind of news coming from
needing new wheeling barring?

Could be a TPS reading just slightly out but not enough for the ECM to turn on the light, or a dirty throttle body and IAT sensor, the best way to check this to to have a live data scan performed, that way you can actually see the out of spec sensor readings. I think you are wanting to know about wheel bearings in your question, a wheel bearing that is going bad will make a whirring sound, on your vehicle the wheel bearings themselves are not replaceable they come in a hub assembly, if you have some knowledge about brakes, axles and torquing to specs you can do the work yourself if you have the right tools. Hope this has helped.
