Where is the starter located on an 05 Chevy Malibu?

Asked by Jan 12, 2016 at 06:09 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 05 Chevy Malibu V6.  It won't start.  When I turn the key over, the
lights will come on.  But, all I hear are clicks.  I'm assuming its the starter, but
I'd like to know where the starter is located.  Does anybody have a good
diagram of a Chevy Malibu Engine?

should be on the front portion of the engine probably drivers side. follow the positive battery cable. BTW, did you try charging the battery or jump starting? a dead battery will do this. If you jump and get it running, test the alternator.

Thanks! Yes, we did try charging the battery and it still wouldn't start

Check the theft system. I have an 05 Malibu and mine was doing the same thing and I thought it was the starter or the fuel pump but it turns out to be the theft system
