Car cranks but wont start

Asked by Sep 15, 2017 at 11:06 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 month's ago my car would crank but not start I've
replaced the starter, ignition coil, spark plugs,
battery and throttle actuator but still nothing.
Sometime when I turn it over and hold it for a
second and let go it still keeps cranking for a
couple seconds after that. When I crank the engine
it doesn't sound like it even sputters just a simple
cranking noise to it. Can anyone help

some simple diagnostic work could have saved you time and money , does it have spark , fuel pressure ? Are the injectors firing ?
