What is it with these Malibu owners and their stupid questions?

My Malibu doesn't start What's the problem?

I have a Malibu. How do I put gas in it?

I have a 1988 Malibu with 900,000 miles and I've never changed the oil. Is it due an oil change yet?

I have a Malibu that overheated and blew its guts out all over the interstate. Can I still drive it for another couple years until I have enough money to fix it?

Also i guess i should add that there isn't any corrosion where my light bulbs go. I know this is probably going to sound INSANE after reading all 2668 posts but ive only had one issue with this car and that was that the starter had gone out. If anyone can help me please do. I took it to a mechanic who swore it was my brake switch... obviously not! my dad who is mechanically inclined thinks its wiring. I've checked all my wires and honestly they look fine. So please if any of yall nice gentlemen could help this young lady out i would seriously appreciate it!

I have a 2004 Malibu Maxx and am having the same issues. My alarm goes off for no reason. Sometimes its less than a couple of seconds before it goes off, or the car can be sitting for hours.

I'm having this same problem,What's the solution?

2005 Malibu - my factory keyless entry is not working. Both key fobs have new batteries. the trunk will open along with the emergency alarm. I cannot open and closed the doors. is there a switch in the trunk? Where is the receiver in the car. it looks like the key fob is transmitting but the car is not responding/
Having the same problem, is there a fuse somewhere that might be blown??

We have an 06 Malibu Maxx-less than $75000 miles. Been to dealer twice for car shutting off while driving a VERY busy interstate. First time was told the charcoal fuel thing was flooded- so they replaced the pump. It has happened 5 times since then. EVERY time my fills up(which she won't now) it does this. NOTE:: my wife doesn't try to top off the tank... Is this a multiple faulty fuel pump problem or is there something else. They cannot figure out what is wrong and as of right now the car has no recalls
