I have a friend with a 2004 Malibu Maxx V6 with 32,000 miles on it. She has had the car for a few months and has had a starting problem twice in the past week and once shortly after she got the car. The car tries to turn over, but does not start. If she waits approximately 5 minutes the vehicle will start fine. Otherwise the car runs fine. I'm wondering if any of the dealership guys (or anyone else) know the cause of this problem.
Also, maybe this TSB is related to this issue.
