2005 Chevy Malibu won't start

Asked by Jul 23, 2017 at 06:58 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu 2.2 ecotec. In
the morning you can walk out there and start
it right up with no problem what so ever but..
if you kill the car one time that's it. You have
to wait hours and hours so it will start again.
If there is any type of heat at all on the
motor it just won't start. It cranks and you
can hear the fuel pump kicking on but like I
said you have to wait till it cools down and
for hours at that for it to start again. What is
going on?? This is ridiculous. No one can
figure out what it is. I've checked fuses. And
nothing came from that. Please help.

What do you mean "No one can figure it out"? Should be quite simple to diagnose as long as problem can be replicated during diagnosis.
