if that fails to work check for spark in various cylinders if none have spark. follow crank position sensor wireing ( they tend to melt on exhaust) and check for fuel leaks since the bad smell of fuel. if no fuel leaks and no spark disconnect battery clean all grounds and reconnect battery. if still no go i would suggest crank position sensor has gone bad.

could it be the body control module I knocked it loose when changing the blower motor

2,255

In a Chevy Malibu, the body control module controls the antitheft system, the HVAC system, and the gauges, including fuel, oil pressure and speed. It regulates the power windows, locks, seats and interior lights. so i suppose it "could" double check and make sure all connections are tight if they are then i don't think thats the problem
