Asked by Mar 23, 2019 at 10:44 AM about the 2009 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Malibu has it’s days. The rpm stick will
erratically idle like it’s about to die at a stop,
no check engine light has came on. And now
it’s getting to where it accelerates funny but it
hardly does it... slowly everything is just
getting worse idk what to do... Eventually
something will happen.. already had to have
ignition coils changed because my car was
shaking violently.. please help. Engine
hesitation, idling low or rough, sometimes
even shakes at stop.

Have you changed out your throttle body?
