Having problems with your 1999 Chevrolet Malibu ?
Suspect 99 malibu broken timing belt
\015 The car ran ok but idled a little rough. It got hard to start, and had oil in the throttle body. Now it cranks, but will not start, suspect broken timing belt by starting sounds. (100,000mi on car)\015
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...
