2001 Chevy Malibu.
GM Computer codes = EGR, low catalyst
Repairs done prior = car had a low mileage motor installed before i bought i would say around
50,000 or less Repairs for this problem = plugs wires
checked coils new fuel filter and also
replaced the
EGR valve.

Question = 01 malibu low mileage motor car will act like its starving for fuel and lose power
may go 25 and may not go at all never really dies out that much sometimes will start right back
but usually have to leave sit a couple minutes and then it may be fine for a couple days short
distances the CEL was on for egr which i replaced to no avail car has strong pressure at the
rail when it wont start ?

I thought fuel strainer car will throw no codes except low catalyst after egr i dont know what to
do with it its stalling out on me and its dangerous because it wont move when it does it and it
hisses like out of the MAF?? Sometimes i will have to let the car sit but sometimes just for a
minute or 2 and it seems to run ok again it acts like it is fuel because if you get on it hard it will
sputter but at like 4500 and up but at times not do that.

That may be another issue.

You may have an ignition module going bad, a crank sensor problem, faulty ignition switch, a
ground wire problem, or other problem.

I would get the converter checked out first.
