If its grinding while cranking after a severe overheat like that the motor is done for. Likely seized the piston rings and if you cracked the block blew fhe head gasket or cracked the head you'll have coolant in your oil if thats the cae your crank bearings and rod bearings are toast

Sounds like you blew a head gasket or even worse. Get a pressure tester from your local parts store and pressure the system up. Most of the time I've found bad intake gasket and the bypass elbows bad. Parts don't cost much but takes a few hours to fix.

Your fan motor might be fried... and check your coolant, they have a tool which measures its ability to do its job. you might need a radiator flush but start small... THe tool to make sure you anti-Freeze is good is very cheap. By one and test it (it tells you how to test it) then check your fuzes for your Radiator fans in your owners manual. if that is good take your fans off and have them tested. you need to get your fans working again even if you need to by new. And see if your car needs a coolant flush, ( a true flush not a drain and fill

SOURCE: 2000 chevy malibu there is a tapping sound when i

Most likely its just your lifters clapping as they make contact, until the oil starts flowing good through them, then it goes away. My car has been doing that for a long time. Never had any problems. The rods are pushed up by the camshaft, the rods push down rocker arms which then open the valves. The rods are round at the tips and sit in lifters that pump oil through them up to the top of the engine and then out onto the valve springs. If your car has a lot of miles you may consider putting a thicker oil, something like 10w40.

My chevy Malibu 2013 makes a ticking sound when trying to start it .plus the engine light blinks as the engine is ticking but wont start .


Is the engine actually cranking over? or is it just a clicking sound. It might be that your battery is low and does not have enough voltage to turn the starter.

Hi, you may have it flooded. Try holding the accelerator all the way down while cranking the engine to clear the gas out. Let us know if this doesn't work, and thanks for using FixYa.

2007 chevy cobalt I went through water wont start


You're hydrolocked. Pull the sparkplugs out and crank the engine for 30-60 secs. there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE you could have done some major internal damage. Be prepared to replace your engine, but this might work.

Suspect 99 malibu broken timing belt


If its a 99 4 cyl 2.4 ltr it should have a timing chain. Check your PCV (positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve. it should rattle when you shake it. sometimes you can clean it with carb cleaner. but for what they cost, just go buy a new one. When they plug up it doesn't let your crankcase breathe and you will start getting oil in your throttle body or carb. Gas engines don't like to run on oil for the combustion process.4 cyl engines dont have a pcv valve just the v6 motor...
