My 2006 Malibu maxx has 73000 miles on it. While driving, the air conditioning stopped blowing cool air. The outside temp was 95 degrees and my daughter and I both have asthma. Took the car to the dealer today and will cost $1100 to repair and replace the a/c compressor! a car this young should not have this problem. My daughter and I were both using inhalers by the time we arrived back home!.

car   Gas Recirculation Valve (egr Valve) problem 3
Failure Date: 08/25/2008

Vehicle stalls intermittently when stopped and idling. This occurs when backing up and also when idling. It seems to occur more so when the air temperature outside is very hot. Usually when it is around 85 - 90 degrees outside. Vehicle usually restarts ok. Only one instance when engine was turned off twice while idling, it would not restart until engine cooled down. Then was able to start engine. Mechanics have not been able to detect problem even when vehicle was scanned for codes. Have taken it to different automotive service shops including dealerships and no one can find the problem because they state it is intermittent. Air temperature outside of vehicle seems to be a key factor with car stalling when temperature very hot. The car has never overheated when this occurs.
