I ran out of gas in my 2001 Chevy Malibu that I just purchased two weeks ago. After being pushed to the gas station and putting fuel in, it still wouldn't start. The gauge registered half a tank. I had to have it towed home. We thought it was the fuel pump. I came to this web site and read all the helpful information. Nothing seemed to work. Then I read that someone suggested to turn the key on enough to hear the fuel pump and then turn it off. Doing this about 8 to ten times and having a battery charger hooked up I tried to turn the engine over and it WORKED!!! Whoever suggested that, I can't remember but if you read this, thank you so much I almost ran out and bought a fuel pump. I am a female and my husband suggested to buy a fuel pump. (he's a mechanic) I refused to believe that the pump was bad. So while he was at work and browsing this web sight I decided to take it upon myself to do what was suggested. I still can't believe it. My car is back on the road. Thanks again, whoever you were.One more thing, after reading other problems regarding the Malibu has been a little discouraging, I have to say. I love the car, but fear the problems others are having. (Example, blinkers working when they want to) I am seriously considering putting the car up for sale while its it top running condition. Hopefully someday GM will honor their work and back up their rep. I have always had Mazdas, Nissans, or Toyotas. What a difference that is. I feel personally, that they are more dependable then the American cars. Why is that? Therefor, what good is the warranty if it isn't going to be fixed properly.

Hope this helps someone just as it did for me.
